Sun takes center stage in India’s climate change plan

The BBC reports:

“In this strategy, the sun occupies centre stage, as it should, being literally the original source of all energy.

“We will pool all our scientific, technical and managerial talents, with financial sources, to develop solar energy as a source of abundant energy to power our economy and to transform the lives of our people,” Mr Singh said.

“Our success in this endeavour will change the face of India.”

The action plan, however, makes no commitment to cut India’s carbon emissions.

This is the right focus. If India replicates its success in space science, then it will be a sun powered future for India. And rightly, it does not make any commitment to cut carbon emissions. More at Reuters.
