Climate Change: It Effects Us All by City-Tech Blogger Aayush Madaan

When it comes to climate change, some countries take on a more passive role while other countries either contribute to the problem or actively work towards reducing the effects of greenhouse gasses. Regardless of where you are in the world, climate change affects us all. Countries like China plan to reduce their carbon footprint by 2025, and it was said they have already accomplished that goal and are working towards capitalizing on the renewable energy market. Just like China, I was oblivious to the fact that India has also made efforts to combat climate change. Currently, India is the second largest populated country and projections show it will overtake China by 2025. Since 2010, India’s economy has doubled, so the path India takes towards climate change will have an immediate and apparent effect on the rest of the world. According to a Reuters’ article, HSBC reported India ranked number 1 as the most vulnerable country to climate change followed by its neighboring country, Pakistan. If the effects of climate change remain consistent, it could have detrimental effects on its people and the world. Even though India has been making an effort, it still relies on coal for energy, nearly 45 percent of total energy demand and 80 percent of electricity.
