  1. Modi is trying to make this work,all things mentioned by speaker are already executed or taken care by current gov.however he is getting political pushback,one example is making electricity distribution move efficient, Punjab is live example ,free electricity to farmers is killing both environment and money required to make switch to clean energy.

  2. Yeah, nobody would talk about the embedded carbon in these renewable energy systems, and the mining of rare earth metals which is way more toxic than coal mining. Except 'maybe' Carbon dioxide emissions, renewable energy fails on almost every other aspect.
    These green chaps know what they are doing, they are selling a product nobody actually needs. There is no need to overhaul a system which can be incrementally made better. We have Coal Power Plant technologies available that we can easily deploy to reduce pollution, can use cogeneration to increase the resource use efficiency of Natural Gas power plants, and there is also research undergoing on how to capture Carbon and sequester it into Earth, and we also know the techniques to restore a mined site. Thanks but no thanks, your services are not required.
    Go back Simon.

  3. Where were these hypocrites when America, Europe and recently China were poking holes in the ozone. Don't tell us what to do. I am confident India will do only things that are environmentally friendly and responsible as has been our track record till date. Even though we are the 5th largest in nominal GDP terms, we are far behind in per capita carbon emissions. Unlike western societies where they they grow vegetables far from population and freeze them, we have a different supply chain.

  4. Such a biased video on India. Your country U.S has withdrawn from Paris COP. And India has been doing remarkably well in renewable energy. Your video is like seeing an insta reel or tik-tok video and blabbering on the negative things of India like a 7th class kid. Your assumptions just make them more worst.

  5. People should think twice before Investing on India's Solar Energy Programmes. Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is very corrupted and most Nodal Offices are filled with non performing officers!!!

  6. Bla bla bla India should do this do that; typical ABCD who comes and expects India to do XYZ for climate change when India is already doing much more than it's peers while households in USA are running 4 cars per household. Kiddo go back to your moma . Typical COlumbia university jholachaap who have made a career out of speaking and talking about India without having any skin in the game.

  7. I don't buy the argument that nuclear/hydropower aren't feasible due to India's lacking state capacity. As our economy grows, capabilities also grow. We need to invest in nuclear along with renewables.

  8. You want to fix pollution in India ask the farmers in North Western States to stop burning farm remainder they do it every year & are the main cause if pollution in Delhi. The solar & wind plants are high maintenance & creates more problems than coal better go for nuclear like France.

  9. RE is a SCAM. Blackrock already to $ell Pretty Boy's ONE BILLION CHINA#1 PV Panels, NOT INDIA's> +++ build $$$Billions to Trillions in NEW Transmission lines to deliver that and Bird CHOPPER Wind. Unreliable, Blackout Prone, EGEN==WASTE. 2040–usa will buy CHINA#1 Reactors like usa does 2021 CHINA#1 Subway Trains==usa too dumb to make trains or PV. WW0 == no Atomic Power trust flim flam Pretty Boy SCAM

  10. A classic example of trying to fit Indian lifestyle to "US" lifestyle with multiple cars and ACs in the name of "modern" lifestyle.

    I'm a farmer's son and software engineer.

    I agree with the Crux of what you said but disagree with the way you put it.

  11. "India should build renewables at a rapid pace"

    "Battery powered rickshaws and bikes"
    Bro, good batteries in automobile like this will last for 5-6 years. After that, we'll have a HUGE amount of toxic waste to deal with. Batteries are complex to recycle and will end up in landfills. I wonder why you didn't talk about that.

    For public transport, TrolleyBus or the Trackless trolley is the most efficient and green way of transportation. Batteries are bad. Not as bad as petrol, but still, a huge headache to deal with.
