(Microsoft® Encarta® 2009). Like explained in the definition climate change brings about global warming, floods,...

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...

Climate in a narrow sense is usually defined as the "average weather," or more rigorously, as the statistical description in terms of the mean and variability of relevant quantities over a period of time ranging from months to thousands of years. 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...

“Nature Protects if She is Protected” was the motto of the biggest ever environmental conference held in India, the United Nations Conference of Parties 11 (COP11) in 2012. Seemingly, the Government of India has forgotten to practice before it preaches. It is now undeniable that the disaster in Uttarakhand, India which occurred exactly a year ago was waiting to happen, thanks to the utter callousness of authorities and an untimely monsoon spell which took the nation by surpri...

World Environment Day (WED) is a supposedly great day celebrated every June 5th to celebrate the environment and all that it has to offer. It is a day set aside by the United Nations to celebrate the sustainability and well being of mother earth and to campaign for its sustainability, protection and conservation. Yet with all of these campaigns and preparations we still have degradation, high levels of pollution, oil spills, land grabbing, and GMOs. Other environmental destruct...

The WHO estimates that 97% of the people of Bangladesh have access to water and only 40% percent have proper sanitation. With a staggering 60% of the population that has to endure unsafe drinking water, the nation is in danger. The availability of this water greatly fluctuates throughout the year as the warmer season brings massive amounts of water in frequent monsoons and the cooler season brings drought. The infrastructure cannot adequately deal with the barrage of water in monsoon season so t...

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...
