Climate change is not a theory but, it is a real situation, which treats the survival of life. This is because all organisms on earth depend on the environment to sustain their lives. Climate change can be described as the significant change of weather patterns and conditions of an area, over a long period of time. Climate change is a natural process but, due to human activities (emission of green houses, pollution, deforestation etc.) the rate at which climate change occurs has ac...

I recently realized how significant the year 2015 will be for this world. There is so much pegged on it, most of which is on how the world will focus its development agenda for the coming decade or so. In a moment I will break it down to you, but I am very sure you have a slight idea of what it is I am aiming at. Even if you are new to the development world, or your focus is not as global; I am confident you have mentioned some of these agendas under discussion. Millennium Developm...

The combustion of wood, oil and coal results in increased levels of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide acts as a greenhouse gas because it lets natural light in through but traps out on going long-level radiation. The consequence is that increased levels of carbon dioxide are slowly making the earth warmer causing climate change. Greenhouse gases can cause depletion of the ozone layer which protects humans from cancer of the skin. It also reduces...

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...

GLOBAL WARMING The American Geophysical Union (AGU) stated that human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, have significantly increased atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (gases such as carbon dioxide that trap solar radiation). 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...

Solar energy, radiant light and heat from the sun, is harnessed using a range of ever-evolving technologies such as solar heating, solar photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity, solar architecture and artificial photosynthesis. Solar technologies are broadly characterized as either passive solar or active solar depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active solar techniques include the use of photovoltaic panels and solar thermal collectors to har...

The Issue: Repeated warnings of climate change impacts have obtruded scientists, civil society and indigenous peoples to look for initiatives and solutions. A thousand pace should be taken before a negative impact in the world, more notably global warming due. Before a solution has been met, we have already suffered the impacts. For instance, floods, droughts, epidemics, diseases, and uncertain climate conditions are negative impacts due to climate change. So, it is very important to...

Remembering Nelson Mandela and His Fight for Climate Justice By Brentin Mock Tue. December 10, 2013. Nelson Mandela, who died last week, is best known for his fight against South African apartheid. But his long walk to freedom also included steps toward solving this mammoth problem called climate change. He envisioned a world where all people are able to live a fully dignified life, with clean air to breathe and clean water to drink—and where poor countries are not left with the repercussions...

Climate change is transforming the planet’s ecosystems and threatening the well-being of current and future generations, increasing the rate of food shortage as a result of droughts, water shortage, and high temperatures globally. Ever since the first climate talks in Geneva in 1979, there have been a series of climate talks, yet no profound solutions has been attained. This has driven world leaders and scientist into postulating false solutions to climate change which is rapid...
