The key factor in all climate change articles and especially the Paris Agreement, is that we should not let the temperature increase beyond 2° Celsius. According to current trends, with all our mitigation efforts, the temperature of our Earth is expected to rise by 3.5° Celsius at the end of this century. And without any effort […]Read More Why is an increase of 2° Celsius such a big deal?

Well, hello there! I know it has been a while, but with the ever warmer summers that we have been having (thanks for that, by the way) I get extremely busy this time of year. Now that we are back we shall continue our discussion on the effects of oceans on the world climate, and […]Read More How do oceans determine regional climatic conditions-Part II
This post is part of a series of posts written by Priyadarshan Pandey. Welcome back, watermen (no?)! So, in the last couple of posts we talked about the reason for my importance, my structure on an atomic level and the properties it generates, and my role in sustaining life on earth. And we talked about […]Read More How do oceans determine regional climatic conditions? Part I- Effect
The problems of rising carbon in the atmosphere, along with the changing climate is one of the biggest in the 21st century. These problems are so large scale, so beyond human control that many people have just made peace with the fact that the world as we know it will soon end (or worse, live […]Read More Reusing wastes: Epic ideas to tackle carbon emissions and climate change
(This is the fifth post in the “feedback loops” series.) Climate is weather, over a long period of time. Unlike weather, climate is predictable. It has a number of factors like solar insolation, rainfall, temperature and latitude/altitude that controls it in a particular place. Also, climate encompasses a large area. Because of the spatial and […]Read More Positive feedback loops: Controlling global climate
Climax community: the final community in the process of ecological succession. This stage of ecological succession has been the object of much scrutiny and attention from ecologists, merely because it is rare and so many different possibilities can theoretically arise, depending on the path of succession. However, all our studies are shown that every climax […]Read More Ecological succession: What controls the climax community?
