From the beginning of human history, we had to satisfy our energy needs for food, heat and movement by using our own muscle power and gathering or hunting naturally available plants, animals and wood. Each stage in the evolution of human society the development of farming, domestication of animals, harnessing of wind and water power increased the average per capita energy use, but it was the Industrial Revolution and the exploitation of fossil fuels which marked the transformation of societies i...


From my own observations, the majority of people in my country (Zambia) do not really connect with issues whose effects are not instant. Climate change is inclusive! For as long as climate change effects are not directly affecting them, a greater part of the Zambian population gives a blind eye and a deaf ear to issues of climate change. However, many others among them, feel connected to climate related issues once they directly affect them. A practical example that may have pushed people to po...

(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...
