Thanks for this informative post. It's great that the people of Orissa are moving to tackle this issue. But I couldn't help but feel a bit sad on reading this. As the people of Orissa surely know, catastrophic climate change can only be averted with global action. People in the United States should feel ashamed that we have yet to get serious about this problem, even as much poorer societies like Orissa are taking up the challenge. Here's hoping that India, inspired by Orissa and other local efforts, will step up to lead on this issue. The United States has clearly failed.
