"India is an environmentally stressed country. It is going to become more environmentally stressed overtime. Most governments are not well prepared to face these issues even at scientific level. Look at my own country. The White House is completely divorced from the signs and its not understood the gravity of the situation at all. Therefore it is acting quite irresponsibly. I think India is going to need to be a leading advocate for environmental sustainability. And its going to need to become, quite soon, a leading player in energy sustainability.â€; Prof. Jeffery Sachs believes that matters are coming upon us with great urgency even before we have any clear answers.
