Abstract

As early as 1896, the Swedish scientist Svante Arrahenius had predicted that human activities would interfere with the way the sun interacts with the earth, resulting in global warming and climate change. His prediction has become true and climate change is now disrupting global environmental stability. The last few decades have seen many treaties, conventions and protocols for the cause of global environmental protection and reduction in green-house gas particularly CO2. Few examples for the environmental issues of global significance are ozone layer depletion, global warning and loss of biodiversity. One of the most important characteristics of this environmental degradation is that it affects all mankind on a global scale without regard to any particular country, region, or race. The whole world is a stakeholder and this raises issues on who should do what to combat environmental degradation. Climate change is impacting the natural ecosystem and is expected to have substantial adverse effects in India. This paper presents an overall review about climate change, possible ways of reducing these green-house gases through Chemical and Biochemical path ways for sustainable development of world.
