Sunil is a prominent voice who talks about climate change, and has consistently shared his thoughts and insights on why corporates should step up efforts and focus on climate change and global warming. He mostly writes about how global warming will have devastating effects on human life, health, food, housing, and water. He believes this will usher in a higher frequency of storms and cyclones with higher energies, droughts and altered weather patterns resulting in crop loss, a spike in disease-bearing vectors, and pathogens. Small island nations and coastal regions are under the threat of submergence, he says. Sunil has expressed his view that this is a frightening scenario and calls for urgent action by the community of nations and businesses from across the world to come together in coordinated efforts to bring in commitment, technology, knowledge resources, and sharing of responsibilities to address the situation.
