TerraGreen (TERI's flagship monthly magazine on Environmental issues)
TerraGreen is TERI's flagship magazine that deals with issues related to sustainable development, environment, and energy. In a world standing on the brink of a major ecological disaster, TG hopes to be the ray of light that lights up the road ahead.
The Cover Story titled, "The Mounting Carbon Emissions", highlights that when fossil fuels, such as petrol or diesel, are burned in internal combustion engines of vehicles they give off carbon dioxide and other gases that contribute to the total global greenhouse gas emissions resulting in global warming and climate change. The author also expounds that vehicles running on our roads are the drivers of increased carbon emissions and their share is fast climbing with each passing year. Apart from the global scenario, he also dwells on the impact of pollution due to vehicular emissions on Indian cities and suggests a few implementable solutions and improvement options for automobiles.
In the Feature article titled, "The Water Contamination Menace", the author says that our water bodies, such as ponds, lakes, rivers, streams reservoirs, etc., have lately turned into venomous water pools. He takes us through the various factors that are contributing to the perils of water pollution but feels that in India there is a ray of hope in the form of the National Mission for Clean Ganga (NMCG) to ensure effective reduction of pollution and rejuvenation of River Ganga while maintaining ecological flow in the river with an aim of ensuring water quality and ecologically sustainable development.
In the Special Report titled, "The Waning Native Traditions and Festivals", the author feels nostalgic and states that with changing times, the bonds of rites, rituals, customs, traditions, festivities and everyday life in the Kumaon–Garhwal hills are loosening with the onslaught of out-migration and advent of the highly commercialized tour packages. The new generation, it seems, is more interested in taking their selfies and uploading them on social media sites.
