Those who are climate change deniers are stupid: Pope Francis 11.9.2017 DNA: Top News
Pope Francis today slammed climate change doubters as "stupid" in the wake of a spate of hurricanes that have thrashed the US, Mexico and the Caribbean. "Those who deny it (climate change) should go to the scientists and ask them. They are very clear, very precise," the pontiff said today during a press conference on the return leg of a five-day Colombia trip. "A phrase from the Old Testament comes to mind: 'man is stupid, a stubborn, blind man'," he added. Francis said individuals and politicians had a "moral responsibility" to act on advice from scientists, who had clearly outlined what must be done to halt the course of global warming. "These aren't opinions pulled out of thin air. They are very clear," he said. "They (world leaders) decide and history will judge those decisions," he added. The pope has been an ardent supporter of efforts to combat climate change and its consequences to the world's most vulnerable populations, in terms of pollution, disease, wars and migration. He has regularly ...

State's sea levels may rise by 0.38 metre by 2050 21.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Few decades on, structures near Mumbai's seashores may be inundated by rising sea levels. In what may drastically alter perceptions about climate change and its impact on coastal cities like Mumbai, a state government study has predicted a 0.38 metre rise in sea levels across Maharashtra by 2050. The Maharashtra Maritime Board's (MMB) shoreline management plan (SMP) has suggested that construction near the coast in Mumbai must rise to a minimum 7.59 metres above mean sea levels by 2050 to withstand storm surges and floods. While Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) notifications regulate a 500 metre horizontal region from the high-tide line, the SMP lays down a vertical impact of the sea-level rise. This can be incorporated into urban and land use planning, serving as baseline data for planners executing shoreline infrastructure projects like Mumbai's coastal road. "This is Maharashtra's first SMP. Developed countries like Singapore and Australia have SMPs and consider them as reference points in coastal ...
