This book describes the various Green Technologies that either do not produce any greenhouse gases nor any pollutants nor do they depend on the earths scant resources of oil and other fossil fuels. A relatively poor country like India has to uplift itself while at the same time meet the worlds demands for mitigating climate change. This is the crux of the matter: the book shows how we can derive business and industrialization benefits from our climate change activities so that the resulting development may be able to justify the advantage by going along with the developed world and reducing our emissions.
