Climate change as a result of global warming attributed to excessive greenhouse emissions in the atmosphere is a serious threat to the societies across the world. In response, the stakeholders are working towards reduction of carbon emissions in the atmosphere...
Carbon emission from commercial aircrafts could be reduced by about 16 % through better use of wind direction   Commercial aircrafts use lot of fuels to generate sufficient power to sustain flight. The burning of aviation fuels contributes in greenhouse gases in...
The rate of ice loss for Earth has increased by 57% from 0.8 to 1.2 trillion tonnes per year since 1990s. As a result, the sea level has risen by about 35 mm. The majority of the ice loss is attributed...
Notre-Dame de Paris, the iconic cathedral suffered serious damages due to fire on 15 April 2019. The spire was destroyed and the structure considerably weakened due to flames that raged for hours. Some amount of lead volatilized and deposited...
Plastic pollution poses a major threat to ecosystems worldwide especially marine environment as most of the plastics used and discarded reach finally in rivers and oceans. This is responsible for the imbalance of marine ecosystems causing harm to oceanic...
Death Valley, California recorded a high temperature of 130°F (54.4C)) at 3:41 PM PDT on Sunday, August 16, 2020.  This temperature was measured at Furnace Creek near the Visitors Center using a National Weather Service owned automated observation system. This...
‘State of the UK Climate’ is annually published by the Met Office. This provides an up-to-date assessment of the UK climate. The 2019 report is published as a special issue of the International Journal of Climatology.   The 2019 report published on 31...
Hidden, oceanic internal waves have been found to play a role in deep-sea biodiversity. In contrast to the surface waves, the internal waves are formed as a result of thermal contraction in layers of the water column and help...
Temperatures in big cities are rising due to ‘urban heat island effect’ and this is increasing the intensity and frequency of heat events. Study uses computational modeling to assess characteristics associated with increased temperatures across land-uses in cities to...
Study has calculated energy-return-on-investment (EROI) ratios for fossil fuels from first extraction stage till the last stage when the usable fuel is ready. It is concluded that fossil fuels EROI ratios are low, declining and are similar to renewable...
A new carbon capture method has been devised to capture carbon dioxide from fossil-fuel emissions Greenhouse emissions are the biggest contributor towards climate change. Emissions of critical greenhouse gases is a result of large-scale industrialization and human activity. Most of...
Comprehensive study on the seventh biggest country of the world, India, shows how ambient air pollution is majorly affecting health outcomes According to WHO, ambient air pollution is responsible for almost 7 million annual deaths worldwide due to exposure to...
Study shows growing food organically has higher impact on climate because of more land use Organic food has become very popular in the last decade as consumers are becoming more aware and health and quality conscious. Organic food is produced...
Scientists have developed a laser technology which could open avenues for clean fuel and energy technologies in the future. We urgently need environment friendly and sustainable ways to replace fossil fuels, oil and natural gas. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is an...
Scientists have shown a new technology in which bioengineered bacteria can make cost-effective chemicals/polymers from renewable plant sources Lignin is a material which is a constituent of cell wall of all dry land plants. It is the second most abundant...
Study had shown a scalable and affordable solution of directly capturing carbon dioxide from air and tackling carbon footprint Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a major greenhouse gas and a significant driver of climate change. A greenhouse gas in the atmosphere...
Researchers have identified and engineered an enzyme which can digest and consume some of our most commonly polluting plastics providing a hope for recycling and fighting pollution Polluting plastics is the biggest environmental challenge worldwide in the form of plastic...
A recent report shows a sustainable agriculture initiative in China to achieve high crop yield and low use of fertilizers using an elaborate network of researchers, agents and farmers Agriculture is defined as production, processing, promotion and distribution of agricultural...
Study has produced a new material which could adsorb air and water pollutants and could be a low cost sustainable alternative to the currently used activated carbon Pollution makes our planet’s land, water, air and other constituents of the environment...
Study shows the severe effects of climate change on air pollution thus further impacting mortality worldwide A new study has shown that future climate change if left unaddressed has the potential to cause approximately 60000 deaths globally by the year...
