Our initial visit to India in 2009, as members of the breakthrough Climate Solutions Road Tour 2009, helped us hone our skills, message and mission.  We learned how Solutions to climate change and environmental issues can be found all over the Indian sub-continent. And we got a ton of help from the United States Department of State!
