Kochi, Jul 9 (UNI) Throwing his weight behind alternative sources of energy, former Supreme Court Judge Justice V R Krishna Iyer today urged the Kerala Government to chalk out projects to utilise solar energy and to generate electricity from wind and wave to tide over the energy crisis in the state.

In a statement here, Mr Justice Iyer said ''both the Government and the Opposition in the state should be blamed for not utilizing the abundant solar energy and not encouraging power generation from wind and wave.'' The nuclear energy was dangerous and costly, and the nuclear waste would be harmful to the mankind, he added.
