New Delhi / Gurgaon, India
Since mid 2006 I've grappled with climate change and what it means for us. During this time I have sought to learn, and simultaneously attempted to influence, the issues surrounding it - mainly in technology and policy advocacy.
After thousands of hours of research, delivering about two dozen public talks, countless conferences, hundreds of online discussions, a few media appearances (including Reuters, News Television, and BBC radio), tenacious activism, and continuous evolution of my own ideas about what ought to be done - I may have come across some answers but I've utterly failed in exerting any influence whatsoever.
In the despair filled world of climate change the only place I've found real and lasting hope is in a vision inspired by a Russian book series called "The Ringing Cedars of Russia" by Vladimir Megre. The books have influenced me a great deal and I'm now working to realise the vision.
Climate Revolution Initiative, an RTI campaign I founded and ran for a few years has now been retired. I no longer do the conference circuit. I still consider myself an activist though and I occasionally write on Green-India, a 2400 member strong group of professional experts on energy efficiency, renewable energy, green building design and more.
Past posts in this blog relate to my interest in climate change and renewable energy; my former occupation in user experience design; long time interest in business innovation, strategy, ethics; and venture creation.
