Virender Sehwag says global warming is not a ‘real issue’, gets trolled on Twitter
Without mentioning the 'real issues', the former cricketer suggested traffic and congestion has no link to pollution and that people should concentrate on the 'real issues'.

The cricketer was slammed on social media for denying that climate change was a problem with some people wondering whether he was being sarcastic in writing the tweet.
