Warming climate will displace millions in coming decades: WB 19.3.2018 General News
The number of people fleeing crop failures, droughts and rising sea levels will grow drastically over the next three decades if world governments do not intervene, according to a World Bank report released today. By 2050, 86 million "climate migrants" will be displaced in Sub-Saharan Africa, 40 million in South Asia and 17 million in Latin America -- 143 million in all -- according to the report, which the bank said was the first to address the question of migration spurred by climate change. These regions are home to more than half the developing world's population, with 2.8 per cent of inhabitants among those at risk, the report said.

"Every day, climate change becomes a more urgent economic, social and existential threat to countries and their ...

BJP leaders should atone with 101 sit-ups for false campaign: 12.2.2018 General News
Days after Kerala emerged as the top state as per the health index report prepared by the NITI Aayog, state Finance Minister Thomas Isaac today hit out at the BJP for its "false campaign" against the state, saying the leaders of the saffron party should be made to do 101 sit-ups as punishment. As per the report, while the LDF-ruled Kerala was at the top of the list, BJP-ruled Uttar Pradesh was at the bottom among the larger states. The BJP had unleashed a false propaganda in October last against the CPI(M)-led LDF government in Kerala and the state BJP leaders had also joined in to "humiliate" the southern state for political gains, which was "shameful", Isaac said in a Facebook post. BJP leaders should be made to do 101 sit-ups as punishment for their "collective false propaganda against Kerala state to defame it", he said. The health index report was a befitting reply to the "smear" campaign, the minister added. Four months ago, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi ...
