UN Climate Change Panel’s Damning Report: “Code Red For Humanity”

UN Climate Change Panel's Damning Report-Code Red For Humanity

IPCC Climate Change Report: “Code Red For Humanity”. Cities are hotspots of global warming because these trap heat and there’s a lack of cooling areas like water and vegetation. The United Nation’s Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change, of which India is one of the 195 members, has released its sixth assessment report today. Scientists are […]

Climate change leading to melting glaciers, depleting snow cover in Himalayas: IPCC report

Climate change leading to melting glaciers depleting snow cover in Himalayas- IPCC report

Retreating snowlines and melting glaciers is a cause for alarm as this can cause a change in the water cycle, the precipitation patterns, increased floods as well as an increased scarcity of water in the future in the states across the Himalayas. Among the most alarming findings as laid out in the Inter-governmental Panel on […]

Carbon footprint of the banana supply chain

Carbon footprint of the banana supply chain

The term “carbon footprint” is used to describe the quantity of greenhouse gases generated by an item or activity. It is expressed in carbon dioxide equivalent (amount of carbon dioxide that would have the same impact on climate change) and has been widely used over the past decade for environmental assessment. The calculation of a […]

Rapid rise in methane emissions in 10 years surprises scientists

Rapid rise in methane emissions in 10 years surprises scientists

Emissions of the powerful greenhouse gas methane have surged in the past decade, threatening to thwart global attempts to combat climate change. Methane warms planet 20 times as much as similar CO2 volumes but lack of monitoring means scientists can’t be sure of sources. Scientists have been surprised by the surge, which began just over […]

Air pollution and climate change two different aspects of the same situation

Air pollution and climate change two different aspects of the same situation

Erupting volcanoes, earthquakes, dust storms and meteorites smashing into the Earth’s crust are natural phenomena that can cause climate change and air pollution: dinosaurs may have met their end after a giant meteorite kicked up so much dust that it blocked out the sun for decades, reducing photosynthesis and preventing the growth of plants. Adding […]

Planting Trees for Climate Change to Save Our Planet

Everyone should be very worried about climate change. Even the most hardcore sceptics cannot ignore all the things we are seeing and have been seeing in recent years. Rising temperatures and rising seal levels, more frequent and violent storms, earthquakes, melting polar caps. It’s all because of climate change and it’s our fault. We did […]

How do trees clean the air pollution

How do trees clean the air pollution

Trees clean the air pollution. And Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark. Trees remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and reduce the greenhouse gas effect, all while providing us with clean air to […]

Climate change means no airport expansion

General Until petroleum-based aviation fuel is replaced, you should avoid flying when possible to change climate. Fly less frequently, fly shorter distances, and fly economy class. This simple step can Reduce Your Carbon Footprint From Air Travel. There is only one way to prevent aviation from wrecking the planet. We need to fly much less. […]

The benefits of planting trees for our planet

The benefits of planting trees for our planet. Why are trees so important to the environment? Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80% of the world’s earthbound biodiversity. Forests provide jobs to over 1.6 billion people, absorb harmful carbon from the atmosphere, and are […]

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint From Food

Eat locally-produced and organic food It has been evaluated that 13% of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions result from the manufacturing and transport of food. Transporting food requires petroleum-based fuels, and many fertilizers are also fossil fuel-based. These smart choices can Reduce Your Carbon Footprint. Avoid Robert Mugabe’s Birthday Party This year attendees will be feasting on two […]
