Pledge to go-green: London, Paris amongst 12 big cities to buy only zero-emission buses from 2025 23.10.2017 DNA: Top News
Twelve major cities including London, Paris, Los Angeles and Cape Town promised on Monday to buy only zero-emissions buses from 2025 and to make major areas free of fossil fuel emissions by 2030 to protect the environment. The 12, with a combined population of almost 80 million, said they would promote walking, cycling and the use of public transport under a joint "fossil-fuel-free streets declaration". Many cities are setting tougher environmental goals than governments to limit air pollution and to achieve the goals of the 2015 Paris climate agreement to curb greenhouse gas emissions. "Air pollution caused by petrol and diesel vehicles is killing millions of people in cities around the world," Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said in a statement. "The same emissions are also causing climate change." The mayors, part of the C40 group of cities which is seeking to slow global warming, said they would "procure only zero-emissions buses from 2025 and ensure that major areas of their city are zero emissions by ...

Mars has ideal conditions to produce oxygen from CO2, explains study 23.10.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Mars has nearly ideal conditions for efficiently creating oxygen from atmospheric carbon dioxide in the future using plasma technology, a study has found. According to researchers from University of Porto in Portugal and Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, Mars has 96 per cent carbon dioxide (CO2) in its atmosphere. The research, published in the journal Plasma Sources Science and Technology, shows that the pressure and temperature ranges in the Martian atmosphere mean non-thermal plasma can be used to produce oxygen efficiently. "Sending a manned mission to Mars is one of the next major steps in our exploration of space. Creating a breathable environment, however, is a substantial challenge," said Vasco Guerra, from the University of Lisbon in Portugal. "Plasma reforming of CO2 on Earth is a growing field of research, prompted by the problems of climate change and production of solar fuels," said Guerra. "Low temperature plasmas are one of the best media for CO2 decomposition - the split-up of the molecule ...

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 ...
