Pope Francis blasts US for 'slap in the face' to Vatican for pulling out of Paris Climate Accord 16.10.2017 DNA: India
Pope Francis implicitly criticised the United States on Monday for pulling out of the Paris agreement on climate change, praising it as a means to control the devastating effects of global warming. The United States is the only country out of 195 signatories to have withdrawn from the accord, which aims to cut emissions blamed for the rise in temperatures. U.S. President Donald Trump announced the decision in June shortly after visiting the pope, a strong supporter of the deal. At the time a Vatican official said the move was a "slap in the face" for the pope and the Vatican. "We see consequences of climate change every day," the pope said in an address to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) at its headquarters in Rome. "Thanks to scientific knowledge, we know how we have to confront the problem and the international community has also worked out the legal methods, such as the Paris Accord, which sadly, some have abandoned," he said. Under the deal, United States had committed to ...

India ready to work above and beyond Paris deal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions: Sushma Swaraj 20.9.2017 DNA: Top News
 India today reaffirmed its commitment to the landmark Paris climate change agreement, saying it is willing to "work above and beyond" the pact to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, during a UN 'Leadership Summit on Environment Pact', said that India had been at the forefront of the debate on environment and development. Her remarks came amid uncertainty over the US role in the deal after President Donald Trump in June announced that America was withdrawing from the Paris deal, arguing that it gives undue advantage to countries like India and China. India, which is the world's third largest carbon polluter, along with more than 190 nations reached a pact in December 2015 with an aim to prevent an increase in the global average temperature and keep it well below 2 degrees Celsius. The deal, which replaced the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, was ratified last October. Participating in the UN meet hosted by Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Swaraj said India was willing to work ...

US withdrawing from Paris deal unless it gets favourable term: Trump Economic adviser Cohn 18.9.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The US is determined to withdraw from the Paris climate pact unless it gets a favourable term, President Donald Trump's top economic adviser said at the United Nations today. Gary Cohn, the Director of National Economic Council, said this after a breakfast meeting with energy ministers from about a dozen countries on the sidelines of the annual General Assembly session of the United Nations. "We are withdrawing from the Paris Agreement unless we can reengage on terms more favourable to the United States. This position was made very clear during the breakfast," the White House said in a statement after the meeting. "Today s Energy Minister Breakfast was a useful conversation with many of our international allies and partners. We discussed the president's energy agenda, and the role that US energy resources and technologies can play in promoting energy security, driving economic growth, and reducing emissions at home and globally," a senior White House official said. The conversation also focused on ways ...

North-East to get drier in future, study reveals 20.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The eastern Himalayan region, source of water for rivers in the northeast, is likely to see a decreased monsoon rainfall over the rest of this century, while the trend is going to be opposite across the western Himalayas, a new climate research study published in Springer journal has revealed. The study has predicted the trend for the period up to 2099. The research used 10 global climate models, sourced from five international climate research institutes, to project rainfall across the Himalayan region. Researchers used a combination of regional climate model and global climate model experiments, which allowed for a sharper resolution and reduced uncertainties. The stretch from Afghanistan in the west to parts of South China in the east was chosen for the research. Rainfall in the Himalayan region between 1970 and 2005 was used as the present-day monsoon dataset, while carbon emissions and varying elevations across the mountain range were among the many factors taken into account. The project made ...

Extreme weather conditions will kill 152,000 Europeans a year by 2100: Study 5.8.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Europe's death toll from weather disasters could rise 50-fold by the end of this century, with extreme heat alone killing more than 150,000 people a year by 2100 if nothing is done to curb the effects of climate change, scientists said on Friday. In a study in The Lancet Planetary Health journal, the scientists said their findings showed climate change placing a rapidly increasing burden on society, with two in three people in Europe likely to be affected if greenhouse gas emissions and extreme weather events are not controlled. The predictions, based on an assumption of no reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and no improvement in policies to reduce the impact of extreme climatic events, show European weather-related deaths rising from 3,000 a year between 1981 and 2010 to 152,000 a year between 2071 and 2100. "Climate change is one of the biggest global threats to human health of the 21st century, and its peril to society will be increasingly connected to weather-driven hazards," said Giovanni ...
