Editorial

Editorial

The Global Economic Scenario is grappling with three major crisis those thwart growth and development. These thrilling issues are Food Crisis, Water Crisis and Ground Water Crisis. These elements constitute a major share of five classic elements like Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Aether, the basic unit upon which the constitution and fundamental powers of anything are based. No doubt the third phase of industrial revolution had already taken place with a lot of emphasis on service sector. But think tanks often argue whether this economic growth is at the cost of environment? Demand for energy in total globe has been enormously increased due to the increasing population and industry as well. The current status of energy supply does not cater to the needs of all the consumption spheres. We have already witnessed the situation during 1970 energy crisis caused by Germany, US, Kannada etc, 1973 oil crisis caused by OPEC, 1979 oil crisis caused by Iranian Revolution, 1990 oil price shock caused by Gulf War and many more. The consequences were nerve-wrecking. In the present times several counties have shown a red sign towards energy supply and conservation. To mention a few 2008 Central Asia Energy Crisis and China Energy Crisis due to diesel and coal shortages are upcoming threats to combat. As petroleum, coal are major source of non-renewable energy sources with a stipulated amount contained in the core of the heart, focus should be shifted to sustainable sources like tide, wind and air.

The industrial expansion has fueled the rate of deforestation as the United Nation Framework Convention on Climate Change has reflected that Subsistence farming is responsible for 48% of deforestation; commercial agriculture is responsible for 32% of deforestation; logging is responsible for 14% of deforestation and fuel wood removals make up 5% of deforestation. With the increasing trend of Population, Urbanization and Globalization and Industrialization the ecology and biodiversity are heinously affected. There is a great challenge to compensate the present level of decay. The situation is alarming and it will still prevail to disrupt the environmental harmony if not addressed.

Water is inevitable aspect of total kingdom of plantae and animalia. In the recent years the ground water crisis is emerging in many parts of this world. The purity of net usable water under the earth continuously gets infected due to multifarious reasons. The industrial influents coupled with ineffective waste management threatens the water resources. Global Warming, Green House Effect although carries a great disaster in a long run it also dampens nitrogen, carbon and water cycle. Soil Fertility and productivity is also reduced due to erratic nitrogen fixation and Oxidation. The excessive usage of water in the emerging sectors like Hospitals, hotels and resorts has led to alarm a future scare of water resources.

Thus we are faced with mighty challenges. Fortunately we have a history of meeting great challenges using imagination and our irrepressible capacity to adopt. To ensure that we journey in the right direction, we must allow our knowledge, experience and institutions to catch up with the overwhelming progress of science and technology, and learn how to become both good neighbors for each other and good guests of the natural environment.

It’s my pleasure to welcome all the participants, delegates and organizer to this international conference. In the process of organizing this conference IRNet family members have shown their commitment and dedication. I sincerely thank all the authors for their invaluable contribution to this conference. I am indebted towards the reviewers and Board of Editors for their generous gifts of time, energy and effort.

The papers that have been included in the proceeding passed through a stringent scrutiny process and thorough review.. I congratulate and wish all success to the authors.
