India`s greenhouse gas emissions
(GHGs) have increased by 58 per cent to 1.9 billion tonnes
between 1994-2009, primarily from coal-based power sector that
nearly doubled its carbon footprint, a study has said.
Greenhouse gas emissions have fallen thanks to the global downturn, handing the world a chance to move away from high-carbon growth, a report said on Monday, citing an International Energy Agency study.
