“When people talk about climate change, they are talking about changing temperature and weather on the Planet Earth. Temperature on Earth is increasing day by day, the main reason of it’s getting warmer is because too much of heat is getting trapped in Earth’s atmosphere. Every time energy is used, there is an emission of heat into the atmosphere. More and more cars are seen on the road and most of the houses have Air-Conditioner, Computers and other Electronic Gadgets, which emit heat and carbon-di-oxide” said Shri N.C. Bajpai, Deputy Chairman Planning Commission UP, the main speaker on the inaugural day of National Seminar on “Sources of Planet Energy, Environmental & Disaster Science: Challenges and Strategies.”
