Is Donald Trump the Ultimate Threat to the Planet?

The scientific evidence behind climate change is too compelling to ignore. Average global temperature has increased, global sea level has risen as a result of the polar ice caps melting, extreme weather events worldwide have become more intensified and long-term, the amount of CO2 have increased and it all have come to threaten planet earth including its inhabitants. And now the 45th President of the United State, a country that plays a major role in the global fight against climate40

Earth is heating up: Anybody listening?

The trend of temperature rise has been a matter of great concern in the last few decades. Sooner or later, countries realised that it’s not a localised phenomenon and deserve global attention to find a cure. In the rat race of urbanisation, actions taken by the developed countries to become more powerful and underdeveloped countries to become developed has not only modified the ecosystem but is also posing a threat to the existence of Natural resources.

India – Insincere at Paris

“Unto Heaven be Peace, Unto the Sky and the Earth be Peace, Peace be unto the Water, Unto the Herbs and Trees be Peace” These lines from Yajur Veda, at the start of India’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC), set the tone for the complete story of India’s stand on Climate Change. INDC documents listed actions a country intends to take, to help achieve the goals that were to be set at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21)40

Why you should be optimistic about the Paris climate change conference

The 21st meeting of the Conference of Parties, which refers to the United Nations-sponsored climate change talks taking place in Paris this year, has renewed global discussions about the need for rapid action. Delegates are making global pleas for nations to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that threaten the long-term security of the planet, and to create the conditions for an alternative energy revolution. The goals of this year’s climate summit are lofty, and may even be achievable. Here40

Climate Change Can Make You Vulnerable To Diseases

The earth is 4.5 billion years old. It has seen a lot of changes over the centuries from phases of extremely high temperature to the periods of permafrost, a lot about these climatic changes is known because of the remains found in the corals, rocks, ice, trees and fossils. These climatic changes have brought about wiping out of the most powerful species of those times. Human interventions, increased level of greenhouse gases has accelerated the rate of this change.

Climate Change: How Can Wind Energy Help?

Wind energy plays an important role in addressing climate change on a global level. Many countries around the world have been working hard to reduce their carbon emissions during the last decades. Some of the world’s leading markets in the US, Denmark, Australia and the UK recognized the power of clean energy and electricity to reduce carbon pollution. By increasing the proportion of electricity generated from wind energy we can lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce our dependency on fossil40

Airport

Airport environmental impacts

The significant role of airports on regional economy has been prominently recognised by many researches; airports bring significant social benefits and in many cases they are thought to be the single largest generator of economic activity in the regions they serve. However, transport infrastructures like airports have considerable effect on city’s urban development and have negative impacts on the environment. Many reports show that the contribution of airports to environmental disturbance at a local and global scale is significant. Key40
