BENGALURU: “We are already in the energy revolution and its just that we are not recognizing it,” said Chandra Bhushan, Deputy Director General, Centre for Science and Environment while talking on ‘Climate Change and Energy Transformation:The Road Ahead for India’ at the National Institute of Advanced Studies onJanuary 18,2017.

He mentioned the decision the countries of the world jointly took to keep the global temperature rise below two degrees and strive to keep it below 1.5 degrees if possible atUnited Nations Climate Change Conference held in Paris in 2015. But he pointed out that in the Indian context 1.5 degree was not a reality as we have already exceeded it.
