In a significant stride towards fostering climate awareness and environmental consciousness, the U.S. Consulate General, Hyderabad, in collaboration with Bronx Community College of the City University of New York (CUNY), has successfully inaugurated a state-of-the-art weather station at Bakul Library in Satya Nagar, Bhubaneswar.

The weather station, a testament to international cooperation and scientific innovation, is set to make real-time data on micro-climate parameters accessible to the public. Prof Phillip emphasized that this data, available online, will play a pivotal role in heightening awareness about the significance of climate data and its implications on climate change.
