Historically, global climate change scientists, analysis and policymakers have struggled with a way to make the vital connections between gender, social equity, and climate change.
There exists no precise definition of Climate so it is always described in relation to the place. Every place has its
own typical climate, as in, some places are covered in snow eternally and some are hot, dry, and arid. Climate
also varies with the season. However, climate change refers to a significant change in the usual climate of a
certain place in the sense of a change in the annual precipitation or the change in temperature or humidity, etc.
Due to the factors, some natural like the reduction of distance between the sun and the earth or some human
errors like emitting greenhouse gases, the temperature would soar thus melting the icebergs, rising sea level,
etc. While aiming for the Zero target is surreal, the Net-zero target is a trade-off. Net-zero does not actually cut
down on the emissions but tries to countervail the carbon emissions by carbon credits or sequestration or
methods like large-scale use of hydrogen and de-carbonization of electricity.
India’s target of net-zero carbon emission is 2065-2070 which extends the target of the Glasgow summit that is 2050. India is the 3rd largest carbon emitter latter to China. India is the most affected nation as per the 6th Assessment Report of IPCC. Maximum target year of carbon emission of India because of the rapid increase in populace and whole economy dependent upon coal and oil. There are 666 million tons of carbon emitted by India as per the global carbon project 2021. India will lessen the magnitude of the emissions in the economy by 45% in 2030 as compared to 33-35% in 2005. India can’t live without coal because 70% of the production of power came from coal-fired power plants and many folks who are indigent are work in coal factories because of sustainability. Deep coal dependence is mainly Jharkhand.
