Bonn: Without Donald Trump, governments come to gether to tackle climate change 6.11.2017 DNA: Money
Governments will try to bolster a 2015 pact to combat climate change at annual talks in Germany from Monday strained by President Donald Trump's plan to pull out and instead promote the U.S. coal and oil industries. Fiji's Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, who will preside at the Nov. 6-17 talks of almost 200 nations in Bonn, says he wants more urgent action to cut greenhouse gases as part of the 195-nation Paris Agreement. "The human suffering caused by intensifying hurricanes, wildfires, droughts, floods and threats to food security caused by climate change means there is no time to waste," he said in a statement on Sunday outlining his goals. Delegates will work on a detailed "rule book" to help guide the 2015 Paris climate accord, which set a goal of ending the fossil fuel era this century by shifting to renewable energies such as wind and solar power. But Trump doubts that human activities are the main cause of climate change - a finding endorsed most recently by U.S. scientists in a report on ...

WhatsApp takes one-hour break, Twitter explodes in mirth 3.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Social chat platform WhatsApps hour-long worldwide outage triggered a Twitter outrage like no other on Friday morning. It was like an oxygen supply cut-off, as millions wondered aloud whether they were the only unfortunate victims. Disbelief morphed into extreme mirth as social media exploded in jokes, mostly at WhatsApps expense. The outage was big, even if lasted only an hour. Tracking site downdetector.com recorded large swathes of India fumbling without the chat giant. Soon, the problem triggered a mini-global warming with complaints pouring from West Asia, the Philippines, Germany, the US and Sri Lanka. Clueless, WhatsApp addicts took to Twitter, Facebook and other platforms to share their woes. But not every tweet was a complaint. This user was much relieved, as he dipped his tweet in a sauce of sarcasm: "Wassapp finally goes down unable to handle flood of Good morning and Good night messages in the family wassapp groups (sic)." Hyper-ventilating, the addicts asked around. But for Anshu Mor, time ...

Climate change has enormous implications in Himalayas: Senator 2.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Climate change has "enormous" geopolitical implications in the Himalayas, particularly in the region between India and Pakistan, where destabilisation of water flows make the area ripe not just for conflict but also for devastation, a top US Senator has warned. Noting that Pakistans major rivers are all fed by glacial meltwater from India, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse told a Washington audience this week that more melting meant more flow, and climate change also can intensify heavy rains during the monsoon season. Referring to a study, he said even an optimistic scenario on climate change would cut the Himalayan glacier mass more than a third by 2100. Business as usual means loss of nearly 70% of glacier mass, Whitehouse said, adding that "because they are melting, the glaciers are also shrinking". "This has enormous geopolitical implications," he said in his key note address to The Hudson Institute, a top US think-tank, on the release of a report "An Integrated Approach to the Himalayas". "In the region, ...
