Teenage inventor Vinisha Umashanka given standing ovation at Cop26 for call to ‘stop talking and start doing’
The Independent says a schoolgirl from India who created a solar-powered ironing cart has called on Cop26 to “stop talking and start doing” when it comes to tackling climate change.
Vinisha Umashankar is the youngest finalist in The Duke of Cambridge’s Earthshot Prize for her ironing cart that aims to replace charcoal-heated irons street vendors use in India, that create pollution when being used.
The invention can power an iron for six hours from five hours of sunshine and it eliminates the 11 pounds (5kg) of charcoal used daily by vendors.
