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 ...

MoEF recommends dropping 7 hydel projects from Kameng River Basin 3.8.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate change (MoEF & CC) has recommended dropping seven hydroelectric projects (HEPs) that have a total capacity of 2,337 Megawatts (MW), from the Kameng River Basin in Arunachal Pradesh due to their proximity to the Pakke Tiger Reserve, and unviable project locations. The MoEF has conveyed this to the Ministry of Power, Ministry of Water Resources, and the State government of Arunachal Pradesh, in a letter dated July 28. "Kameng-I, Kameng-II, Pakke, Seba, Pasar, Bichom stage-I, and Bichom-II have been recommended to be dropped from the basin. On other free stretches of the river, no further HEPs should be planned/allotted in the entire Kameng basin even if they are smaller than 25MW and do not fall under the purview of EIA notification, 2006," the letter states. A total of 44 HEPs, with cumulative installed capacity of 4,898.9 MW, were considered in the river basin study. Of the 44, 37 HEPs, with a total capacity of 2,561.9 MW, have been recommended and seven ...

Fossil site shows impact of early Jurassic's low oxygen oceans 16.7.2017 DNA: Money
Scientists, using a combination of fossils and chemical markers, have found that a period of low ocean-oxygen globally caused the Early Jurassic marine ecosystem to collapse, shrinking diversity to just a few species. The study, led by Rowan Martindale from the University of Texas at Austin in the US, zeroes in on a recently discovered fossil site in Canada located at Ya Ha Tinda Ranch near Banff National Park in southwest Alberta. The site records fossils of organisms that lived about 183 million years ago during the Early Jurassic in a shallow sea that once covered the region. The fossil site broadens the scientific record of the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event, a period of low oxygen in shallow ocean waters which is hypothesised to be triggered by massive volcanic eruptions. The Oceanic Anoxic Event was identified at this site by the geochemical record preserved in the rocks. The oxygen level of the surrounding environment during the Early Jurassic influences the type and amount of carbon preserved in ...
