FOREWORD

The most critical and universal challenge confronting us today is Climate Change. No

country, industry, company or individual can afford to ignore it. The rapidity with which

humankind has infringed on the laws of nature has led to a near breakdown of all natural

processes. It has impacted weather patterns, the lifecycles of species and the ability of the run all our businesses.

planet to rejuvenate itself. It is affecting and will affect with increasing intensity the way we

I have no doubt in my mind that the time to act is upon us. We must pay heed to the call of

the planet, because not only does our future depend on it but, it is also the right thing to do.

And for that we need to understand the issues at hand. For it is only then that we will be

able to act responsibly and effectively to stop harming the planet and start rebuilding it.

The onus for protecting the planet rests with us because we are responsible for the damage

done. Also, if we do not act now, it will be too late for anyone to do anything at all. Worse, we will

be letting our children down by denying them their rightful inheritance of a beautiful planet.

This story of two sensitive and sincere children, Mini and Aman, graphically explains what you and I can do to save our planet.

Mini was a curious little girl. Every morning when she left for school, she would inspect all the things that came her way...

... a garden full of flowers ... a pond full of fishes

Her curiosity got her late some days and even punished at school. But what could she do? She could not help standing by and staring at things. ... a swinging tyre on a tree ... a broken down car ... heaps of trash and... ... even some grown ups playing cards by the roadside She wanted to know why these things were where they were; she wanted to know what gave the wind its speed, the sun its fire and the water its roar.

She wanted to know if the skies were born blue and whether the roads were born grey. She was often overwhelmed by the truck load of questions that poured into her head every day.

They spun around her head making her dizzy as she raced around in circles trying to find answers to every what, how and what if that she thought up.

So it was with Mini and her life when one day...

One day when she stepped out of her home, she found a big roar rumbling down the streets. It was as if her world had been hit by the raging waves of a tsunami.

The birds and animals seemed to have disappeared from the trees. The roads felt like they were drowned in dust and dirt ... and the light seemed harsh. But...

The worst thing of all was that no one seemed to notice. The street walked along as calmly as it did every day. The sun was in its place. The grown-ups were at their usual spot, playing cards.

For Mini, however, nothing was the same.

The grey sky was covered with dark clouds of smoke. The smell of grease and grime filled Minis nostrils.

She could hardly breathe, and all around her the children were coughing till they were blue in the face.

And men and women walked about with their faces and noses covered.

But silence was not going to come in the way of her quest, nor was she going to be put off by people who didnt want to answer her questions. Nothing was going to stop her. Mini had to understand what and she had to know why. So she asked everyone the same questions, again and again.

No one paid any attention except for one. A boy.

He stood there, his T-shirt stained with grease and soot. His face carved in a scowl and his hands folded around his chest.

The boys name was Aman and he made his living by sorting out the trash that people threw out. He too was at a loss trying to understand all that he saw around him.

The world was changing. The people were changing.The places were changing and the WEATHER was changing.

It was either too hot or too cold. His hands and face were dusty and cracked almost all the year round and the rains, had become even more unpredictable than they used to be.

It has been like this, said Aman, for days and days. The mornings are grey and gloomy The nights are suffocating The evenings are full of smoke And in the afternoons, the sun bores holes down my head and my back. The roads are so full of smoke that every breath of mine is like a ball of fire. And now this tree that I used to swing on everyday, thats gone too. But why do you think no one notices? asked Mini.

Mini went on...I can see that our air is changing, our seasons are changing, our whole world is changing.

The two children sat down on the fallen banyan tree. They spoke little and were lost in thought.

And as happens to all of us, they found themselves confounded and at a loss. The problems seemed too big for them and too complex to have an easy answer.

But unknown to the two of them, there was someone else getting ready to speak.

A deep voice that sounded like it was coming from far below the earth spoke out loud. You children seem to be very intelligent. Much more intelligent than many of the adults I meet.

Mini and Aman jumped, almost tripping over the log they were sitting on and watched with their mouths wide open as.... an old man, uncurled himself from the trunk of the tree and stood up straight.

The man looked familiar. His eyes had a kind twinkle and they seemed to know him from somewhere but it was only when he came up close that they remembered where they had seen him before. He was the same old man they used to see outside the factory gates, sitting under a tree talking to his friends. He had worked in the factory for many years until his years of work ran out. Tree Uncle, thats what the children used to call him, Mini remembered.

Said the old man peering at the children who sat there gaping at him:

You are right, the summers are hotter and the winters cooler.

It rains when it never did and sometimes doesnt rain at all. There are floods and cyclones and heat waves and hurricanes.

And all this is happening much more frequently than it ever did before.

What is climate? asked Mini. And why does it change? asked the boy. And what can we do to stop it? asked Mini. Well, said the old man with a sigh. There are no easy or short answers to your questions. You will need the patience of a tortoise and the never-say-die spirit of a spider to listen to what I have to say. Do you have that?

But, Tree Uncle, asked Aman, how does this change the climate?

The old man looked at him patiently and said: More greenhouse gases means a warmer earth because they absorb more heat from the sun. Temperatures rise and that changes the climate.

Some of this is natural BUT temperatures are rising much faster than they have ever done before, causing cloud bursts, heat waves, floods, cyclones and untimely rain in some places. Thats how more greenhouse gases lead to climate change.
