Prakash Javadekar asks developed world to put their money where their mouth is on climate change

2014-10-29

NEW DELHI: Seeking to send a message to rich nations ahead of UN climate conference in December, India on Monday said developed countries should not only talk about mitigation through emission cuts but also lay greater emphasis on adaptation and extending adequate finance and technology to poor nations so that they can prepare themselves for the adverse effects of climate change.

Antarctica\'s ice loss changed Earth\'s gravity: Study

2014-10-14

 LONDON: Antarctica has lost so much ice that it has caused a shift in Earth's gravity, according to a new study. 

 
The European Space Agency (ESA)'s GOCE satellite has shown that the ice lost from West Antarctica over the last few years has left its signature. 
 
"The loss of ice from west Antarctica between 2009 and 2012 caused a dip in the gravity field over the region," ESA said in a statement.

Warming of Indian Ocean may weaken monsoon: Study

2014-10-03

 PUNE: A recently published study says the Indian Ocean has been warming consistently for over a century and at a faster rate than any other region of tropical oceans — and this may weaken the monsoon. 

 
The study by scientists from Pune's Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Sorbonne University in Paris and Pune's Fergusson College found the warming of the Indian Ocean has been a major contributor to the total global sea surface warming, which may have long-term effects on the climate such as weakening the southwest monsoon and being detrimental to marine biodiversity.

Can ants save Earth from global warming?

2014-08-03

  NEW YORK: Ants may be cooling the Earth by helping trap carbon dioxide from the environment, a new study has claimed. A long-term experiment tracking the ants' effects on soil suggests they cooled Earth's climate as their numbers grew. "Ants are changing the environment," said lead study author Ronald Dorn, from the Arizona State University in Tempe.

Is It Mandatory To Have Information on global warming?
Almost 15 years ago, a few scientists reported that rise in global temperature has ceased down and claimed that the large hue and cry about global environmental problems was just a far cry. But recently, when a few scientists made an attempt to estimate rise in global temperatures through satellite readings it was discovered that the mercury had been constantly on rise 15 years but our failure to record Arctic temperature created led to denial for 15 years. The lack of acknowledgement straight away gave rising temperatures a head start of one and half decade almost bringing our environment on verge of drastic changes and damage.
The global warming changes that were being categorised as 'imminent' are already here which is very alarming. We are already late by 15 years as a result of which the rate of global warming has outpaced all earlier projections. Scientists expected a rise of 2 degrees Celsius by end of this century which has now turned into 2.9 degrees Celsius, this implies that the efforts that are being made to restraint climate changes are not enough. Spreading awareness about global warming issues is the primary step that can lead to evolved initiatives in this direction.
Every single soul who is even least aware of global warming issues wants to make efforts to save environment and keep it green which clearly explains the significance of updating readers with right facts on global warming. Go Green Indian holds this responsibility with all sincerity and has therefore dedicated a team that works 24 X 7 to keep readers posted with latest global warming news.
