There is a need for policy implication-oriented research and not only t-value significance at a 95 percent level of significance with many disconnections between environment, climate change, and sustainable development, told Goel.
To ensure public participation in environmental protection, we need to become street smart in using smartphones, explained Professor Goel.
The future requirement based on ‘Needonomics’ deserves priority over and above ‘greedonomics’ for protecting the environment by imbibing the lessons from Gita & Anu-Gita, told Goel.
We need to treat the dynamics of an environment as water to search for its own profit for everyone ensuring inter-generation equity in India, believes Professor Goel
