Decades of climate change brings risks that people will accept higher temperatures, with more heat waves, downpours & draughts as ‘normal’ & complicate government plans to do more to cut greenhouse gas emissions. “Because the last three decades have seen such a significant rise in global & regional temperature, most people under the age of 30 have not lived in a world without global warming,” told Michel Jarraud, Secretary General of UN World Meteorological...

Humans are your little kids mother, Being factors for you to bother. They cut trees & make you naked, By global warming earth is being baked. Mountains & oceans are your scenic view, Glacier outbursts & tsunamis are hurting you. Humans are being cruel, rude & selfish, Extincting are valuable plants,wildlife and fish. Teach humans mother or scold or slap, But let our offsprings play on your lap. As your kid & youth, promise I make, T...

The classical period is 3 decades, as defined by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). These quantities are most often surface variables such as temperature, precipitation, and wind. Climate in a wider sense is the state, including...

Tragedy after tragedy, same topic every decade with no absolute idea to do away with the scourge. Climate change with a negative effect in the lives of the old, the young and more especially the youth who are considered to be the leaders of tomorrow. One among many areas of concern is the socio-economic sector. The natural causes of climate change is addressed by a layer which protects us from the harmful rays of the sun; this protective layer is called the ozone layer. But the activities undert...

The continued build-up of these gases in the atmosphere is expected to cause major disruptions to the global climate system, including rising average surface temperatures, rising sea levels caused b...

Greetings, I am Hayagrish, a student of Lalaji Memorial Omega International School in Chennai, India and I would like to share my views on the importance of being a global citizen in this multicultural world.

It’ll take a global effort with global citizens to stop them. We have a duty to protect each other as humans. It is time tha...
