Impacts of glacier mass loss 20.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Tuesday
RAPID SHRINKAGE Researchers have warned of an urgent worldwide need to address a broad spectrum of cascading impacts of glacier mass loss on downstream systems. In their paper, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the authors synthesised currently available evidence and documented the profound impact on freshwater and near-shore marine systems. Glaciers cover close to 10% of the Earth's land surface but are shrinking rapidly across most parts of the world. Glacier shrinkage will alter sediment transport, and biogeochemical and contaminant fluxes from rivers to oceans. An unexpected impact of glacier shrinkage is the liberation of contaminants including emission products from industrial activity such as black carbon and associated compounds, mercury, pesticides, and other persistent organic pollutants. Though there is uncertainty in the release of these legacy contaminants from glacierised areas, their transport to downstream systems by meltwater will eventually reduce as glacial ...

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has paved the way for the NH-34 stretch of the PMO's ambitious Chardham highway widening project, that will connect Uttarakhand's holy sites, as it disposed of a plea that alleged that the project was violating provisions of Bhagirathi eco-sensitive zone. In an undertaking, the Uttarakhand state government and the Border Roads Organisation assured the green court in an undertaking that the project would be carried out with due compliance of laws in force, especially the Bhagirathi notification of December 2012. They further stated that during the project implementation, they would ensure that no muck is thrown either into the river, water bodies or in the forest or green area down the hill. The NGT bench, headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar, said that in view of the statements made, the application is disposed of. The bench added, "We make it clear that in the event, there is violation of any law or breach of the statement as made before the Tribunal, the applicant would ...
