Al Gore and RK Pachauri representing the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) received the Nobel for Peace in 2007. Pachauri warned that rising global temperatures will unleash a series of complications that will have a deep impact for India’s coastal cities.

Shan returning home in Cochin did not know about the pending cyclone or the fact that fishermen were hurrying back watching the sky after the storm-advisory. He just focused on maneuvering through the traffic and reach home before the 8-pm news.
However, the storm awaited him. The PM replaced the higher-currency with new one (with immediate effect) and it was just not available. Unfortunately, Shan had just two hundred rupees in acceptable currency and the Indian market is highly cash oriented.
The sky and the sea normalized in few days but the economical storm left Shan adrift for years to come.
