Two-day seminar on ‘global warming’ under way
TIRUNELVELI: The Tamil Nadu Science Forum’s two-day seminar on ‘Global warming’ commenced at Manonmaniam Sundaranar University here on Friday.
Addressing the seminar, Joint Secretary, Department of Agriculture, R. Vasuki, said that though awareness of global warming could be created across the world only after the later part of the 20th century, no consensus on the measures to be taken to effectively check the global threat could be arrived at even now.
She cautioned that the non-recyclable and non-degradable plastic products would be a serious threat to the environment. Kundrakudi Ponnambala Desigar, Registrar, MSU, S. Manickam, Vice-Chancellor, MSU, R.T. Sabapathy Mohan, and others spoke.
