Desertification: A Threat to Our Food Security and Livelihood

One of the greatest environmental challenges of this decade has been the ongoing land degradation in our drylands including arid, semi-arid and dry sub-humid areas of the world. Driven by multiple factors, but predominantly by climate change and human activities, this process, known as, desertification not only threatens present and future food security and livelihoodRead More

What’s the Future of Climate Migrants?

Humans are on the move, en masse! As we continue to use fossil fuels for our energy needs, the concentration of greenhouse gases has been increasing, trapping heat within the atmosphere of our planet and thus raising its average global temperature. As a result, the climate change has triggered unpredictable, extreme weather events which haveRead More

Russia Isn’t Denying Climate Change Anymore!

With no brakes on consumption and combustion of fossil fuels for our energy needs, the increasing emission of greenhouse gases has been causing global temperature to touch record highs each year. The resultant climate change has been evident all across the world, which has been manifesting itself in forms of extreme weather events such asRead More

Eutrophication — Green Isn’t Always Good!

Anthropogenic activities have been putting our aquatic life under constant stress! With the rise in greenhouse gas emissions and the corporates and governments defaulting on their emission mitigation pledges, the concentration of carbon dioxide — a gas which traps heat — has been rising in the atmosphere, contributing to the phenomenon of global warming. TheRead More

Coral Bleaching — Global Warming is Destroying Our Corals!

The spiralling concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and our oceans have led to global warming. The marine life has been severely affected by climate change. Marine environmental issues like ocean acidification, ocean deoxygenation, sluggishness in ocean currents continue to deteriorate marine ecosystems which are not only home to a range of animal andRead More

Antarctica — The Sleeping Giant Awakens!

Antarctica, the Southernmost continent, has been often neglected by the media when it comes to reporting the impacts of climate change in this ice-covered landmass. However, recent studies reveal that Antarctica has been warming up and it threatens to drive rapid sea-level rise globally as the climate changes. The West Antarctic peninsula has been amongRead More
