If there was a report card on how the world is doing on issues related to climate change, it would read a resounding 'F'. Consider the figures.

Yet in this century alone – despite heightened awareness of the need to arrest the ever-increasing levels of greenhouse gas emission – temperatures have risen up to four degrees Celsius.
