"It was a wonderful experience interacting with you and appreciate the way you have planned and executed the whole publication process within the agreed timelines.”Subrat SaurabhAuthor of Kuch Woh Pal
By 2050, the world’s food requirements will grow by at least 50%, but cultivatable land will have reduced significantly. By 2030, natural disasters are expected to cause 50% more damage than they do today. In the 2010s, trees consumed half the carbon they did in the 1990s. We have lost one-third of our forests, and many cities are running out of water – at a fast pace.
This is the unfortunate reality of our generation – we have allowed our planet to bleed for the sake of our personal interests. Climate Change is now on the cusp of becoming a self-sustaining threat, meaning that within a few years, humans will have no means of stopping the climate Armageddon.
Most of us feel that climate change is too big a problem and that it cannot be solved. My aim with this book is to convince you that this is actually not the case. You can indeed solve this problem – in fact, your contribution today may be humanity’s last best hope of continuing to live on this gorgeous planet‘2050: The World We Are Building’ is a labour of love and curiosity. It was written to help you understand the problem of climate change and explore the possible change strategy that you can be part of – because that changes everything around us.
I hope that this book will help you figure out your role in the greatest challenge ever faced by the human civilization.
Harshit Poddar is the co-founder of SafEarth Clean Technologies. At SafEarth, Harshit and his team are trying to accelerate the world’s transition to clean energy by removing the bottlenecks faced by consumers in shifting to solar power. Harshit’s passion for renewable energy propelled him to start working in this space in 2014 while he was still a 19-year-old in college. Since then, there has been no looking back. As of March 2021, the SafEarth platform has helped over 50 industries install over 34MW of rooftop solar plants that save approximately 50,000 tonnes of carbon every year. The team at SafEarth has given themselves an audacious target of saving one billion tonnes of carbon every year by 2030.
Harshit and his wonderful team recently founded the SafEarth Foundation, a non-profit that aims to create awareness on climate change, plant trees, and build grassroots coping mechanisms that enable local communities to better deal with the impacts of climate change. Presently in its first year of operation, the foundation is currently working in rural Rajasthan to achieve these goals.
Harshit is an alumnus of the Lawrence School, Sanawar, and the RV College of Engineering, Bangalore.
Outside of work and writing, he is an avid reader and traveller.
