While outlining the enormous environmental challenges that India faces today, Narain says political interests often scuttle their effective resolution. She recounts some widely reported controversies triggered by research undertaken by her along with her team at the Centre for Science and Environment, such as the pesticides in colas report, air pollution research in Delhi and endosulfan research in Karnataka, among others.

    CLIMATE CHANGE NOW - The Story of Carbon Colonisation

    We live in the age of climate change—heat waves, extreme weather events, increase in diseases induced by deforestation, floods and snowfall in deserts, unprecedented hurricanes, storms and drought conditions across the world. The challenge is to find a balance between economic growth and ecological spaces. However, global climate negotiations, for over 25 years, are stuck, as the US, which is the largest polluter historically, has walked out of every agreement. This book is the voice of the developing countries, or the Global South, who are the victims of climate change, even though they have not contributed to the problem. And they will never have capacities to deal with catastrophes as much as the rich nations. Climate change is going to widen the gap between developed and developing countries. This is the story of carbon colonisation...

    Climate change - For the young and curious

    Understanding the biggest threat to life on earth in the 21st century Earth is getting warmer. The climate is changing, faster than ever before. Why? What is the science behind this? How are humans responsible for this biggest development challenge of the 21st century? Why are the developed countries more responsible for climate change than the developing countries? Are countries doing enough to fight this challenge? Everything is interconnected and what Sam does in California affects Hari in Patna. Understanding the connections and joining the dots is very important. This book explains the links, answers the questions and gives that insight to the global fight against climate change that we often don't take note of.

  5. DROUGHT BUT WHY? How India can fight the scourge by abandoning drought relief

    During 2014-2017 India was shaken by severe spells of drought that hit over 500 million people across geographical regions. Unlike in the past, these droughts did not spare the urban areas; metropolitan cities like Chennai, Hyderabad and Bengaluru declared water emergency and several towns resorted to water rationing.

    “Drought But Why?” examines how an occupational hazard has turned into a human-made disaster of unmanageable proportion since organised agriculture began some 10,000 years ago. The book also delves into the experiences of several villages in chronic drought-prone areas of the country that remain unaffected by the scourge.

    These experiences show that India is a victim of its own policy that revolves around drought relief instead of working towards relief from drought in the long run. These villages offer the new commandments for drought management.

    Environmental History Reader

    The understanding of our ecosystem would be incomplete without understanding its past. Hence CSE’s latest book is invaluable as it helps you figure out some present day environmental concerns from a historical perspective. The past bears heavily on our forests, villages, cities, even air, water and the atmosphere. Current environmental concerns — climate change, conservation and pollution — bear the imprint of the past. It takes us to early debates on pollution, patents and industrialisation. It highlights instances of biopiracy and bioterrorism when these words had not found a place in the English dictionary and shows how ecology played a role in the rise and fall of ancient civilisations. It reveals the environmental underpinnings of warfare, diplomacy, even music and celebration.

    Bhopal Gas Tragedy After 30 Years

    On the intervening night of December 2-3, 1984, methyl isocyanate gas leaking from Union Carbide’s factory in Bhopal claimed more than 5,000 lives. More than half a million people still suffer the side effects of the exposure to the gas; the soil and groundwater have been contaminated and toxicity has crossed over to the second and third generations. This book describes the criminal negligence, incompetent governance and the apathy towards victims that have made Bhopal a continuing disaster. It gives voice to people’s anguish and is also a testimony to the Centre for Science and Environment’s and Down To Earth’s long engagement with Bhopal. This book argues that India cannot afford to let Bhopal fade from public memory and concludes with a blueprint to avoid a similar tragedy.
