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 millions who are already facingRead More

Small Island Nations are Sinking!

The island nations are under extreme threat! With ongoing global warming and climate change, people of these islands and their culture are at serious risk of submerging by the end of this century. The rising temperature has led to an increase in sea levels, frequency and intensity of extreme weather events like cyclones, hurricane, tides,Read More

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, deoxygenation and weakening ocean currentsRead More

Climate Change: Vanishing Ice Cover in the Mountains

With no obvious halt on greenhouse gases emission and mindless deforestation, the temperature of the earth has been rising for the last two centuries, and it has risen more rapidly in the last two decades. This global warming has triggered severe climate change patterns all over the world. Being one of the most sensitive ecosystems,Read More

Birds: Is Avian Life in Dire Straits?

The crooning and chirping of the buoyant creatures gliding high in the sky, hooting up above from a tree, or tweeting in our garden may get silent if we stay on our current trajectory of the impending climate crisis. With unrestrained emission of greenhouse gases due to human activities, the earth’s temperature has been risingRead More

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 carbon dioxide and other humanRead More

Mangroves Restoration to Fight Climate Change

As the temperatures rise globally due to increasing CO2 gas in the atmosphere, our planet has become more prone to extreme weather events such as floods, storms, drought, hurricanes and cyclones, deadly heatwaves and wildfires! The sea-level rise has put much of the coastal areas around the world at a greater risk. To adapt andRead More

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 and oceans. Fortunately, in theRead More

Africa: The Most Vulnerable Continent to Climate Change

Africa, the second largest continent by area and population in the world has been facing severe impacts of climate change in recent years. Scientists have warned that if the global emission of greenhouse gases goes on the way it has been, Africa would be one of the most vulnerable continents to face devastating consequences ofRead More
