The crisis in global environmentalism has deepened more than ever before. While some advocate a ‘return to the earth’ path, involving lifestyle changes to save global population from starvation, others put forth a strong case for tough regulations through proper institutional frameworks for realizing a larger, shared global sustainability. However, there is no denial of the fact that environmental crisis is increasingly becoming globalised and local initiatives, although important, are not enough to address the present crisis.
