 Indian media can contribute to increased awareness of climate change and related issues. A qualitative analysis of some mainstream Indian newspapers (particularly opinion and editorial pieces) during the release of the IPCC 4th Assessment Report and during the Nobel Peace Prize won by Al Gore and the IPCC found that Indian media strongly follows the frame of scientific certainty in their coverage of climate change. This is in contrast to the scepticism displayed by American newspapers at the time. Alongside, Indian media highlights frames of energy challenge, social progress, public accountability and looming disaster. This sort of coverage finds parallels in European media narratives as well and helps build a transnational, globalised discourse on climate change. Another study has found that the media in India are divided along the lines of a north-south, risk-responsibility discourse. However, much more research is required to analyse Indian media's role in shaping public perceptions on climate change. The main aim of the research is collect information from the Metrological station of Chennai and to deliver the Novel database and software tool in order to analyze the effect of Climatic Changes in the Environment. The information obtained from the meteorological station is represented statistically.
