Pollution, climate change affecting everyone: HM
Pollution and climate change are adversely affecting people of all age groups and these are also going to have a serious impact in the future, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday.
Addressing the valedictory session at the NGT World Environment Conference here, he said climate change has now a days been recognised as a major global challenge.
"We in India believe that climate change is the result of emission of greenhouse gases and the resultant global warming that came from the industrial advancement in developed nations, powered by fossil fuel," he said. The Home Minister said although a developing country like India has little to do with this phenomenon, it has to face the consequences.
