Dedication to climate commitments is evident from India’s performance: Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that it is a misconception that poor countries cause more damage to the environment. India’s history of more than 1000 years completely refutes this view. Ancient India has seen a time of immense prosperity. We have also suffered centuries of slavery. Now independent India is the fastest growing large economy in the world. He said that 17 percent of the world’s population lives in India, but our contribution to global carbon emissions is only 5 percent. The main reason behind this is our lifestyle which is based on the principle of co-existence with nature.
Speaking at the G-7’s ‘Investing in a Better Future: Climate, Energy, Health’ session in Schloss Elmau, Germany, the PM stressed that his dedication to climate commitments is evident from his performance. Referring to India’s efforts towards green development, clean energy, sustainable lifestyles and global well-being, he said India has achieved 40 per cent energy capacity from non-fossil sources nine years ahead of schedule.
The PM said that the target of 10 percent ethanol blending in petrol has been achieved five months ahead of schedule. India has the world’s first fully solar powered airport. India’s massive rail system will be net zero in conventional energy in this decade. He said that when a huge country like India shows such ambition, other developing countries also get inspiration. We hope that the rich countries of the G-7 will support India’s efforts. A huge market for clean energy technology is emerging in India. G-7 countries can invest in research, innovation and manufacturing in this area. He said that India can provide facilities for every new technology, it can make that technology affordable for the whole world.
Energy use should not be the prerogative of the rich only
The PM stressed that the use of energy should not be the prerogative of only the rich and a poor family also has an equal right on energy. He said that today it is more important to remember this point when the cost of energy is skyrocketing due to geopolitical tensions. Inspired by this principle, we have delivered door-to-door LED bulbs and clean cooking gas to India, showing that millions of tonnes of carbon emissions can be saved while ensuring energy for the poor.
Find many creative ways to use digital technology in Corona
Talking about the health sector, he said that human and planet health are intertwined. That’s why we have adopted the approach of One World, One Health. During the Corona pandemic, India found many creative ways to use digital technology in the health sector. G-7 countries can help India to take these innovations to other developing countries. Recently we celebrated International Yoga Day. During the Corona crisis, yoga became a great medium for health prevention for people around the world. This helped many people maintain their physical and mental health.
Triple P will have to take responsibility for increasing the number of people
He said that the core principles of circular economy have been an integral part of Indian culture and way of life. Last year in Glasgow called a movement for Life: Lifestyle for the Environment. This year on World Environment Day, we have launched a global initiative for Life campaign. Its goal is to encourage an eco-friendly lifestyle. We can call the followers of this movement the Triple P i.e. ‘Pro Planet People’. We all should take the responsibility of increasing the number of such triple p people in our countries. This will be our biggest contribution to the generations to come.
Modi’s threat was seen in the ceremony, Biden himself came and met
PM Modi’s threat was clearly visible in the G-7 summit. Before the group photo session, PM Modi was talking to Canadian PM Justin Trudeau standing next to him. US President Joe Biden stood at a distance. Seeing Modi, he approached him with quick steps and patted the PM’s shoulder and attracted him towards him. As soon as the PM looked back, he immediately took his hand. Then both the leaders kept talking for some time. This is the first meeting of PM Modi and Biden after the Quad summit in Japan in May. The two leaders will also meet at the i2U2 virtual conference to be held in July. India, USA, Israel and United Arab Emirates will participate in it.
warmed up with macros
Warmth was seen between PM Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron. The two hugged each other upon meeting. Not only this, even after the group photo, both kept talking to each other. Even while going inside the G-7 leaders’ conference venue, the two leaders kept on talking and went inside together. The PM and Macron sat together, had tea and talked.
