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 over us which can haveRead More

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

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
