India is now put into the pressure of reducing the emission GHG (Green House Gases) into the atmosphere due to its climatic change. The responsibility of the reduction of the greenhouse gas emissions lies largely with the industrialized world, though the developing countries are likely to be the source of an increasing proportion of future emissions. The projected climate change under various scenarios is likely to have implications on food production, water supply, coastal settlements, forest ecosystems, health, energy security etc. The survey says that the global mean temperature may increase between 1.4 and 5.8 degrees Celsius (C) by 2100. This unprecedented increase is expected to have severe impacts on the global hydrological system, ecosystems, sea level, crop production and related processes. The impact would be particularly severe in the tropical areas, which mainly consist of developing countries, including India. The impact of the GHG emission on the Climate Change is now worsening than we imagined a decade ago. India being the Developing country was not able to adopt any strategy because it is more concerned to the social economic development. The most effective way is to adopt a sustainable development pathway by shifting to the environmentally sustainable technologies and promotion of water conservation, renewable energy, forest conservation and energy efficiency. It's the responsibility of the Indian Scientists to bring up various sustainable methods and technologies which will be accepted environmentally and globally too. Other than talking about socio economic growth, concentration must be dissipated to the introduction of the green technology into the development of the sustainable technologies for the prevailing problem of the Climate change impact.
