What is the way forward for our planet Earth?

Reports claim that the temperature will be unbearable in the coming fifty years; primarily human and animal life will be affected most adversely.

It is obvious and the world knows, industrialization is the main root of climate changeit has brought the planet and the life on it to its worst condition.

What is tremendously affecting the existence of all life on the planet are a combination of factors such as  industrial -harmful waste, plastics, carbon dioxide, deforestation and others unsustainable processes.

In 2015,  the Paris agreement was signed by 195 countries and it came up with a commitment to maintain average global temperature below 2c.  This report on Nature Climate Change clarifies those massive changes that are happening due to the way countries are practicing or have taken the path towards development through industry, massive consumption and production; destroying all natural resources.

The Paris agreement could lead to a major transformation towards climate change. Moreover, this was a big alert to countries like India and China which are listed among the most polluted cities in the world.

After neo-liberalization, India’s massive industrial growth followed the similar western path of development leading to destruction of its natural resources.

Today issues related to pollution and climate change like deforestation, death of rivers, techno wastes and other issues are major challenges to India. Every year floods are killing thousands and displacing millions. Himalayan glaciers are melting fast, leading to a critical change in agriculture.
Agriculture is largely dependent on river and natural water bodies, but due to drying rivers and insufficient rains it has taken to the most vulnerable times and  contributed to around 60,ooo deaths of farmers in the past three decades.
