CUDDALORE: To conserve the fast depleting fossil fuel reserve and protect environment, people should adopt a new lifestyle. They should be determined to alter their travel plans or mode of transport, A. Murugappan, Professor and Head, Department of Engineering, Annamalai University, has said.

He was delivering a speech at a function held in connection with World Environment Day in Nandanar Girls’ Higher Secondary School at Chidambaram recently.

Unchecked carbon emission has led to climate change and other adverse weather conditions, which also resulted in groundwater depletion and drying up of surface water level, Prof. Murugappan said.
