Global warming and consequential climate change pose the greatest threat and challenge for the survival of the humanity and other life forms in this planet. There is an universal recognition and unanimity now by the global community at large that the earth’s climate is changing rather more rapidly in recent years than in the past with disastrous and irreparable consequences. This, among other things is largely due to phenomenal anthropogenic interferences, resultant of accelerated growth of hydro-carbon propelled and energy-intensive industrialization in a hyper-competitive business world. Consequentially, the level of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions is fast becoming alarming, particularly for the developed as well as the fast developing economy; such as the BRIC and BASIC countries.
