Slowing Ocean Currents and Changing Climate Systems

Oceans cover seventy per cent of our planet and store somewhere around a third of carbon dioxide gas released from anthropogenic activities. This has been warming up our ocean and has resulted in acidification and deoxygenation of seawater affecting marine life drastically. However, there is a more serious threat looming

Expanding Pests Threaten Our Food Security!

With increasing global temperature, climate change repercussions have become more visible in recent years. Our agricultural productivity and net output could reduce drastically owing to warmer conditions which create a favourable environment for pests such as fungi, insects and bacteria. This would mean an additional threat to food security for

Climate Change and Declining Fisheries and Aquaculture Output

The increasing concentration of carbon dioxide gas due to ongoing human activities such as combustion of fossil fuels, deforestation, and urbanisation leading to land degradation have been causing a global rise in temperature. This has led to the declining health of marine and aquatic ecosystems. The process of ocean acidification,

5 Lifestyle Changes to Tackle Climate Change

People have been getting more aware of the climate change implications and in recent years the voices against reducing the global carbon emissions have grown only louder. While when we talk about climate actions, our focus is mainly on the world leaders, policymakers, government authorities and corporate giants. However, if

Ocean Deoxygenation And Starving Marine Life

Our marine life is struggling for its life! Oxygen, a gas vital to all forms of life on our planet, has been decreasing in oceans. Oceans account for half of the total oxygen in the atmosphere and trees for the other half. With unabated emissions of greenhouse gases such as

Soil Conservation: A Weapon Against Climate Change

Carbon dioxide gas is one of the major greenhouse gases which is contributing to global warming and climate change. Combustion of fossil fuels to operate automobiles and run thermal power plants, increasing deforestation, land degradation are some of the key reasons for rapidly growing carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere
