Hi! My name is Kartik and I am originally from Bombay, India. I started this initiative while pursuing my MBA from Univ. of Michigan - Ross school of Business. I realized how how little I knew about climate related issues and started reading more about climate change and its effects. Overtime, I started writing about and shared it with a few friends who encouraged me to start this newsletter and here we are :)
