BMC TO HAMMER HOME THE MESSAGE OF GLOBAL WARMING

MCGM has decided to start it at home to make the earth a better place. As a part of its ambitious project to curb global warming on the lines of Hong Kong, Shanghai and New York, MCGM will go door to door to conduct a random survey of emission of greenhouse gases from air-conditioners, refrigerators and television sets. While it is not possible for the civic corporation to conduct such a survey on its own, it has asked for tenders from private agencies.’ The civic body has already received bids from two companies and the matter has been sent before the tender discussion committee. The work order will be issued soon and the proposal will have to be cleared by the standing committee. The survey would be conducted broadly in three categories- homes, industries and vehicles on roads. The homes will also be classified into high-income groups, low income societies and poor dwellings. A separate team will survey industrial emissions as well as the pollution created by vehicles, which add to global warming. Bureau report NMTV
