'No question' of releasing Cauvery water to TN, says K'taka despite SC order 24.3.2017
Bengaluru: The Karnataka government has declared that there is ‘no question’ of releasing Cauvery river water to Tamil Nadu, despite a Supreme Court order directing it to do. According to a report in NDTV, Karnataka's Water Resources Minister MB Patil said that it wouldn't be able to comply with the court orders. "Where do we release 2000 cusec water from? Let me make it very clear, we have 3-4 TMC shortage to cater to the drinking water needs of Bengaluru, Mysuru & other towns and villages," Patil said. Patil said it would have been a different matter if the state had the water but did not release it. "But we do not have water and there is no question of release", the minister insisted. This is the second time in a year that Karnataka is defying the top court. In October, the Karnataka government, backed by a state assembly resolution, refused to release water to Tamil Nadu in compliance with the Supreme Court directives to release 6000 cusecs of water for 6 days. But the state government gave in after ...

Coral reefs in hot water: study 24.3.2017
A spike in water temperature lasting only days bleached all the coral in a South China Sea atoll, and killed 40 per cent of the tiny organisms within weeks, researchers reported Thursday. The six degree Celsius (10.8 degrees Fahrenheit) surge at Dongsha Atoll in June 2015 was produced by a perfect storm of factors: the time of year, a record El Nino, and a rare lull in local winds and waves. Open ocean water temperature in the region was 2 C (3.6 F) above normal. The dramatic die-off shows what can happen to shallow-water reefs when global warming is amplified by short-term weather, the scientists warned. "The concern is that with a 2 C warming of the oceans, these weather anomalies will happen more often," said Anne Cohen, a researcher at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, and co-author of a study published in the journal Scientific Reports. "It could be every couple of years, even every year -- and completely knock out the reefs," Cohen told AFP. Bleached coral is susceptible to ...
