6 RWAs in Delhi go green, install solar panels for uninterrupted power supply 18.10.2016 DNA: India
In the midst of all the buzz around lethal effects of global warming and enormously high pollution levels, small yet powerful initiatives taken up by residential units such as installing solar panels on rooftops appears as a moment of sunshine. Six RWAs in the capital — Nizamuddin, Vasant Kunj, Saket, Kalka Garhi Village, Ashok Vihar and Shahdara — have took to producing solar power to run each of their RWA office-spaces. All the six associations have installed solar panels of 1 KW capacity, which produces enough power to run around six fans and tube lights. The move has helped bring down their monthly electricity bills by around 15% to 20%. The RWAs affiliated to URJA (United RWAs Joint Action), an umbrella body of more than 2000 resident associations in the city, took the step in their campaign for 'Going Green'. Two of the RWAs —  Nizamuddin and Saket — have also started net metering (selling electricity to power grids), which has made it even more cost-effective for the office-bearers. Pradeep Lamba, ...

New research shows alarming effects of growing human population 26.8.2016 DNA: Opinion
A scientist has found a new map of the ecological footprint of humankind which shows 97 percent of the places on Earth that were species-rich have now been altered. Professor Bill Laurance, who took part in the study to map the ecological effects of people on the planet, said the finding is not very great. "The most species-rich parts of the planet, especially including the tropical rainforests have been hit hardest. In total, around 97 per cent of Earth's biologically richest real estate has been seriously altered by humans," he said. The scientists found environmental pressures are widespread with only a few very remote areas escaping the damage. "Humans are the most voracious consumers" planet Earth has ever seen. With our land-use, hunting and other exploitative activities, we are now directly impacting three-quarters of the Earth's land surface," pointed Bill. Researchers combined data garnered from unprecedented advances in remote sensing with information collected via surveys on the ground. They ...

Finance Ministry rejects Road Ministry's 'green fund' initiative for highways 16.8.2016 DNA: Mumbai
 The Ministry of Finance has rejected the ambitious 'green fund' proposal from the Road Transport and Highways Ministry that seeks to set aside 1 per cent of project cost to provide green canopy along highways. The ministry previously estimated that setting up such a green fund will entail an expenditure of Rs 5,000 crore. "Social forestry stands allocated to the Ministry of Environment, Forests & Climate Change and not to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways. Also, that a Compensatory Afforestation Fund Management and Planning Authority (CAMPA) is in place at present which has accumulated funds of Rs 38,000 crore already," the Finance Ministry said while saying no to the proposal. CAMPA falls under the domain of the Ministry of Environment and Forest and Climate Change, the ministry said, adding that the government has already introduced a Bill in Parliament to create a fund in the Public Account and transfer the accumulated funds. "As the activities of CAMPA are very closely related to what is ...
