March 27, 2023

Mysore/Mysuru: “Avoid, Minimise and Generate (AMG) — Practice AMG to avoid situations of OMG,”  said Prof. Chetan Singh Solanki from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay, who is popularly known as the Solar Man of India.

Prof. Solanki addressed the students at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Mysuru, at an event organised as part of  C20 initiative in association with Institution’s Innovation Council and Campus Level IQAC.

In his interactive lecture on “6 Point Understanding of Climate Change and Corrective Action,” Prof. Solanki spoke on current climate crisis while encouraging the audience to garner accountability. He also briefed on the ongoing climate disaster across six facets, spanning the inception of climate change, its root cause, resultant statistics that imply alarming consequences, and how to take corrective measures.

Prof. Solanki instilled a sense of personal agency through scientific and philosophical nuances that underline the current climate crisis that threatens to destabilise ecological balance in a mere 6-7 years.

He stressed on the importance of Energy Swaraj (independence), a crucial step for mitigating the ongoing crisis.
