Smart growth, sans Copenhagen
The “climaterattis" are locking horns in Copenhagen. All the arcane talk about greenhouse gases (GHG), melting glaciers, percentage cuts and relative fairness is lost on the average Indian. I would be willing to wager a tidy sum that most people have paid little attention to the issues, alternatives and magnitudes (indeed even the unit of measurement) related to environmental sustainability—leave alone have an informed view on the trade-offs. So, as Copenhagen winds up, it’s perhaps time to lay out what is actually at stake.
