PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Jan 30: Contending that glaciers are depleting fast, Union Minister Farooq Abdullah today voiced concern over it and blamed uncontrolled use of fossil fuels for global warming that was resulting in their disappearance.
Addressing TERI's 10th annual World CEO Sustainability Summit on 'Resource Revolution: A global imperative and how business can shape it', Abdullah said he had seen healthy glaciers in the hills of Jammu and Kashmir in his school days.
But now they are melting faster, the New and Renewable Energy Minister said, adding that "fossil fuels have created tragedies for all of us."
"At present, India's biggest need is sustainable energy. The world of ours has realised that fossil fuels have created tragedies for all of us. Many glaciers have disappeared due to global warming." the Minister said.
