When the hills go thirsty 24.6.2018 DNA: Top News
It is summertime and Shimla is a busy place. There are travellers to be checked-in, woollens to be sold at discounted 'summer' prices and tourists waiting to be shown around the mountain vistas. But, there is one thing whose mention is enough for everyone to pause and reflect on — water or the lack of it. There is an unconcealed unanimity across government offices, hotels and homes in the hill town, commercial establishments on the famous Mall Road and villages on the outskirts that the water crisis this summer is the worst that Shimla has ever faced. While the scarcity has always reared its head each summer, locals and experts admit that the acute crisis, which lasted over three weeks between May 20 and June 12, is unprecedented. "We did not have water for 15 days at a stretch. It was an ordeal for all of us in the neighbourhood. It was especially hard on all the women as taps ran dry even at the public toilets. We had to send our kids to relatives' homes in other cities," said Soma Jaiswal, 77, a ...

DNA Jaipur 10th Anniversary: Technological quick-fixes not a solution, says Sunita Narain 23.6.2018 DNA: India
The challenge of environmental management, of water scarcity in a world which is today more and more in an age of climate change is that of an uncertain future of the most vulnerable.  The fact is that on one hand we are building in floodplains, destroying our water bodies and filling up our water channels. On the other hand, climate change is beginning to show its impact on the monsoon. It is leading to more rain in a fewer number of rainy days, as scientists have predicted. We now see more rain and more extreme rain events.  Last year, up to mid-August, data showed that India had 16 extremely heavy rain events, defined as rainfall over 244 mm in a day, and 100 heavy rain events, defined as rainfall between 124 to 244 mm in a day. This means that rain will become a flood. Worse, in Met records, the rain will be shown as normal, not recognising that it did not rain when it was most needed for sowing or that the rain came in just one downpour. It came and went. It brought no benefits. Only grief. This ...

In the last 25 years, Antarctica's ice has melted to cover Uttar Pradesh at least three times over 14.6.2018 DNA: Money
The melting of Antarctica is accelerating at an alarming rate, with about 3 trillion tons of ice disappearing since 1992, an international team of ice experts said in a new study. In the last quarter century, the southern-most continent's ice sheet a key indicator of climate change melted into enough water to cover Uttar Pradesh nearly three times over to a depth of nearly 13 feet (4 metres), scientists calculated. All that water made global oceans rise about three-tenths of an inch (7.6 millimetres). From 1992 to 2011, Antarctica lost nearly 84 billion tons of ice a year (76 billion metric tons). From 2012 to 2017, the melt rate increased to more than 241 billion tons a year (219 billion metric tons), according to the study Wednesday in the journal Nature . "I think we should be worried. That doesn't mean we should be desperate," said University of California Irvine's Isabella Velicogna, one of 88 co-authors. "Things are happening. They are happening faster than we expected." Part of West Antarctica, ...

Plastic waste in Antarctica reveals increasing global pollution: Greenpeace 7.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
Plastic waste and toxic chemicals found in remote parts of the Antarctic this year add to evidence that pollution is spreading to the ends of the Earth, environmental group Greenpeace said on Thursday. Microplastics - tiny bits of plastic from the breakdown of everything from shopping bags to car tyres - were detected in nine of 17 water samples collected off the Antarctic Peninsula by a Greenpeace vessel in early 2018, it said. And seven of nine snow samples taken on land in Antarctica found chemicals known as PFAs (polyfluorinated alkylated substances), which are used in industrial products and can harm wildlife. "We may think of the Antarctic as a remote and pristine wilderness," Frida Bengtsson of Greenpeace's Protect the Antarctic campaign said in a statement about the findings. "But from pollution and climate change to industrial krill fishing, humanity's footprint is clear," she said. "These results show that even the most remote habitats of the Antarctic are contaminated with microplastic waste ...
