According to Chandigarh Administrator Advisor Pradip Mehra, the UT Administration has already issued requisite directives to all the officers in the UT to start preparation for achieving the ‘Solar City' target within the stipulated time frame. He was speaking at a symposium on ‘Protecting Health from Climate Change' organised by the Indian Public Health Association, here. Cautioning on the ill effects of climate change, Mehra said that people should accept that they are in the middle of climate change and the frequency of natural disasters is increasing at an alarming pace. He said that with economic development accompanied with the Industrial Revolution has led to the unprecedented development and great increase in welfare activities, thereby increasing the comfort levels. "But consequent to it is the huge consumption of fuels leading to Global Warming," Mehra said adding that the global warming would lead to rise of sea level and submerging of islands and coastal areas of the world and result in greater migration from coastal regions. —iGovernment Bureau
