A move that will change the way you travel in the national capital. A move that could save our lives. We are talking of alternate day car use in Delhi. A move that is literally a breath of fresh air. Will it work? Or are we going to be all pessimistic and say that it won't?

Global warming isn't a distant threat anymore. The rising temperatures around the globe are directly affecting environmental factors and threatening to disrupt daily life.

Ahead of the Paris climate summit, India has pledged to cut carbon emissions but said that even though coal is polluting, it will continue to dominate its power needs. The answer, says the government, lies in clean-coal power plants also called supercritical power plants.
