Talk about a fitting tribute to Paris.
Restraining hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) growth could help avoid 0.5 degrees Celsius increase in global temperatures, providing a boost towards Paris Agreement’s goal of holding warming below 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Social media reactions to terrorism or acts of terror make for very interesting case studies. Never before have the masses been able to opine with such freedom on platforms that allow millions of others to read and share their views. News channels, newspapers and so on today are being challenged by people directly as the internet, often via smartphones and tablets, offers unprecedented, and often alternative and raw access to information. However, such access and fluidity in information flow comes with certain shortcomings.

Achieving the goal of the Paris Agreement will require a major shift away from the fossil fuel-based economies of today to a more sustainable and green economy. Such a transition, needless to say, will be enormously expensive. The main source of financing will be public funds, essentially raised through taxation by the government. It is here that an ongoing reform effort at the United Nations must be brought into the picture -- the campaign for an intergovernmental tax committee.

In the aftermath of the Paris tragedy, there is a growing debate on whether the attacks by ISIS are a manifestation of an ideological war against liberal western values, which are an antithesis of the puritan values of Wahhabi Islam.

There are three levels of peace, the first one being in the larger world environment and relates to harmony between nations, peoples, world regions, ethnic groups, etc. The second level of peace concerns harmony in our immediate environment comprising family, friends, neighbourhood and workplace. The third level is more personal and individualistic -- inner peace. We cannot underestimate the importance of this level.

The Kyoto Protocol has been largely unable to achieve the reduction in emission targets it set out for developed economies. With the US withdrawing from the Kyoto Protocol in 2003 and an increase in Canada, Australia and Japan's emissions by more than 23.4%, 22% and 8.1% respectively from 1990 levels, the Kyoto Protocol has essentially been a failure. The lesson is loud and clear: international law can sometimes end up being a very poor mechanism for allocating emissions permits.
August 6, 2010. It was around midnight when the clouds above Ladakh burst. Jolted from their sleep the men, women and children saw water gushing into their homes, taking with it all that came in its path. Three weeks later, I packed my bags with everything that I thought the people there would need and started on a journey that would change me. Today I want to share with you what a seemingly small 2 degree change in climate could do to thousands of lives.
