Sensing its impact on one hand and the unconcern responses of the people on the other, the study on the awareness of global worming and its effects was carried out at Academic Staff College(ASC), Himachal Pradesh University(HPU), Summer Hills, Shimla-5, India during 24th August to 19th September, 2009.
