    Difference between Paris Agreement and Kyoto Protocol is in the Approach to Achieve the Ultimate Goal of Stabilizing Greenhouse Gases in the Atmosphere

    Paris Agreement on Climate Change and Kyoto Protocol share the same goal. It is to restrict the global temperature rise below 2 degree Celsius. Unprecedented increase in the Greenhouse gas Emissions is being attributed for the global temperature rise. To limit the rising temperature collective actions are required to be taken by all the countries.  Kyoto Protocol (Treaty) 1997  is the first international agreement to keep the global temperature rise under check. Its commitment period will end in 2020 and from onward the Paris Agreement on Climate Change 2015 will come into effect.  Both the Kyoto Protocol and Paris Agreement took place under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). In order to understand the key difference between Paris…

    Greenland Ice Sheets are Melting From Below According to New Studies by NASA

    According to the new studies carried out by NASA’ Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) campaign Greenland Ice Sheets are Melting From Below.  The interesting knowledge about the Greenland’s ice structures and its melting is being generated by NASA’s Oceans Melting Greenland (OMG) campaign. It’s a five year long mission started in 2015. Ocean Melting Greenland (OMG) Campaign to Enhance the Knowledge on Melting of Greenland Ice Sheets  Greenland’s coastline is 27,000-miles long. The OMG campaign studies the glaciers and ocean along the coastline. The aim of the campaign is to know where and how fast the seawater is melting the glacial ice.  Both boats and aeroplanes are being used for the OMG campaign. Through the…

    How Many Glaciers are there in the World?

    We keep on getting news that glaciers are melting because of the global warming and this will contribute to the sea level rise significantly. This sort of information naturally makes us curious about glaciers. We want to know how many glaciers are there in the world and where are they located? Are they any different from ice sheets and from where to get the most authentic information about them. The post tries to provide information about these queries. Most of the ice in the world is present in the form of ice sheets, ice caps and glaciers. The combined area of these ice shapes is known as total glaciated area. Most glacial ice sheets…

    What is the present level of atmospheric carbon dioxide ?

    What is the present level of atmospheric carbon dioxide? On May 9th, 2013, the global atmospheric daily concentration of CO2 crossed 400 ppm level mark.  On that day the recorded CO2 Concentration was 400.03 ppm as per the NASA’s Mauna Loa observatory in Hawaii. The observatory has been monitoring the atmospheric concentration since last 57 years. The crossing of 400 ppm mark made news. The scientists from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Scripps Institute of Oceanography both in USA confirmed these observations. The CO2 concentration in the atmosphere does not remain same throughout the year. In fact, it varies with the changing season. From springs till later part of…

    Minimum Carbon Dioxide Levels in the Atmosphere Crosses 400 ppm Mark

    Each year during the spring season the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere reaches to its minimum. The reason is that during this time the plants get new leaves and they grow maximum. The more the leaves sprout, the more the leaves grow, the more photosynthesis will take place which means enhanced intake of atmospheric CO2 to produce food. This reflects as a dip in the atmospheric concentration of CO2. During the harsh winters and fall the plants shed their leaves. It is this time that the global CO2 level reaches to its annual high. As per the NASA’s observations based on the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) instrument, the annual…

    Carbon footprints of an email, a cup of tea & coffee, bags & bananas

    Climate damaging effect of the fossil fuels is well known. Fossil fuels release the trapped carbon into the atmosphere in the form of carbon dioxide. This and many other greenhouse gases trap the infrared portion of the sunlight after it gets reflected by earth surface. This causes the global warming. Click here to know more about Carbon Footprints. The idea behind calculating release of total greenhouse gases from an activity, product or process is to know how much eco-friendly or eco unfriendly it is. Read below to know the carbon footprint of some of the things and activities we never thought to be contributing to the building up of greenhouse…
