Bonn: Without Donald Trump, governments come to gether to tackle climate change 6.11.2017 DNA: Money
Governments will try to bolster a 2015 pact to combat climate change at annual talks in Germany from Monday strained by President Donald Trump's plan to pull out and instead promote the U.S. coal and oil industries. Fiji's Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, who will preside at the Nov. 6-17 talks of almost 200 nations in Bonn, says he wants more urgent action to cut greenhouse gases as part of the 195-nation Paris Agreement. "The human suffering caused by intensifying hurricanes, wildfires, droughts, floods and threats to food security caused by climate change means there is no time to waste," he said in a statement on Sunday outlining his goals. Delegates will work on a detailed "rule book" to help guide the 2015 Paris climate accord, which set a goal of ending the fossil fuel era this century by shifting to renewable energies such as wind and solar power. But Trump doubts that human activities are the main cause of climate change - a finding endorsed most recently by U.S. scientists in a report on ...

Ken-Betwa linking project gets green nod 27.9.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The Centre's ambitious Ken-Betwa river linking project has received the final environmental clearance, subject to general and specific conditions. This is part of a much-bigger plan to link some of India's major rivers that will help fight drought spells and overcome irrigation challenges but also raises some ecological concerns. An expert panel of the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF&CC) that appraises river valley and hydroelectric projects had recommended the proposal for environmental clearance last December. Following the panel's nod, the ministry issued the final environmental clearance on August 25. DNA has reviewed a copy of the clearance. Pegged at an estimated cost of Rs 18,000 crore, the project proposes to transfer water from the Ken river basin to the Betwa basin in Uttar Pradesh. Both rivers are tributaries of the Yamuna. As part of the project, a 77-metre-high and 2,031-metre-long composite dam will be built on the Ken in Daudhan village to provide irrigation for ...
