A BEAUTIFUL FUSION OF BROWN WITH WHITE

We all know about the famous Sahara desert. It is the largest hot desert in the world. The Sahara is one of the hottest regions of the world, with temperatures that can soar to 47 degrees Celsius.

But it looks like Global Warming is conducting a beautiful experiment with this hot desert.  The snowfall in the Sahara Deseret is evidence of the much talked about global warming trend, just like the unusually warm winters in Russia, bitter cold spells in the US and floods in Europe.

WHAT IF WE RUN OUT OF CHOCOLATE?

How dark do you like your chocolate? Probably not as dark as this news; there might not be any chocolate left to eat in 2050. A chocolate shortage is a looming reality, according to some experts.

Chocolate has and will always be our guilty pleasure. No matter what race or class we belong too, we all share a common love for chocolate.

Did you ever wonder where chocolate comes from?  Do they grow on tree or does Cadbury and Nestle use technology for chocolate production?

TOO MUCH, TOO SOON

Forget autumn: Winter is coming for the slopes of United States.

It’s only November, and half the U.S. is blanketed in snow—six feet deep and counting in and around Buffalo, New York—while parts of the Deep South have been waking up to temperatures that are just above freezing.

For years, climate contrarians have pointed to snowfall and cold weather to question the scientific reality of human-induced climate change.

GLOBAL INITIATIVES TO PREVENT CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate change is one of the most critical global challenges of our times. Recent events have emphatically demonstrated our growing vulnerability to climate change. Climate change impacts will range from affecting agriculture – further endangering food security – to sea-level rise and the accelerated erosion of coastal zones, increasing intensity of natural disasters, species extinction, and the spread of vector-borne diseases. This issue is of immense importance for every global citizen. That is why it requires an initiative against it globally. Fortunately, a few of the global initiatives to prevent climate change are started by various sectors.

New commitments and initiatives in energy, water and agriculture sectors have been announced at the United Nations Climate Conference (COP23) in Bonn, Germany, under the auspices of the Marrakech Partnership for Global Climate Action to help implement the Paris Agreement.

In Bonn, new initiatives were announced to push forward the transition to renewable energy and to show that more ambitious clean energy development can quickly become a bigger part of national climate plans submitted under the Paris Agreement, according to a UN release.

IS IGNORANCE TRULY A BLISS?

Sometimes ignorance is an excuse. The science confirming climate change is now irrefutable to everyone but ignorant people and greedy corporate polluters. The current debate is no longer even about science. It is now a debate between fact and fiction, taking care of God’s planet and self-centered greed, political honesty and political dishonesty.

We know far too little about the likely impacts of climate change on the biosphere and its components.  “Global change biology” has become an active field, but still lags behind physical climate science. This is awkward for those who are charged with providing informed advice on mitigation and adaptation, because the relationship between global warming and its consequences for human activities and concerns depends on its impacts – with biological processes looming large.
