North-East to get drier in future, study reveals 20.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
The eastern Himalayan region, source of water for rivers in the northeast, is likely to see a decreased monsoon rainfall over the rest of this century, while the trend is going to be opposite across the western Himalayas, a new climate research study published in Springer journal has revealed. The study has predicted the trend for the period up to 2099. The research used 10 global climate models, sourced from five international climate research institutes, to project rainfall across the Himalayan region. Researchers used a combination of regional climate model and global climate model experiments, which allowed for a sharper resolution and reduced uncertainties. The stretch from Afghanistan in the west to parts of South China in the east was chosen for the research. Rainfall in the Himalayan region between 1970 and 2005 was used as the present-day monsoon dataset, while carbon emissions and varying elevations across the mountain range were among the many factors taken into account. The project made ...

Prez's arts council quits over Trump's Charlottesville remarks 19.8.2017 deccanherald.com
The members of the Presidents Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH), an advisory committee to the White House on cultural issues, have resigned citing the controversial comments made by US President Donald Trump about the racist violence in Virginia. In a letter dated yesterday, and signed by 16 of 17 committee members including two Indian-Americans Jhumpa Lahiri and Kal Penn, Trumps decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change has also been cited as a reason for their resignation. "Supremacy, discrimination, and vitriol are not American values. Your values are not American values. We must be better than this. We are better than this. If this is not clear to you, then we call on you to resign your office, too," said members of the presidential advisory committee who resigned yesterday. Trump had commented about last weekends "Unite the Right" gathering in Charlottesville, Virginia. He has blamed "many sides" for the demonstrations that left an anti-racism activist dead. All ...

US budget cuts will reduce aid to developing countries by up to 70%; disaster for world's poor: Rockefeller Foundation President Rajiv Shah 17.8.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Aid to help developing countries fight poverty, hunger, disease and climate change is likely to fall 50 to 70 percent under proposed U.S. budget cuts, a "disaster" for the world's poor, the president of The Rockefeller Foundation has warned. Closing the expected gap through private or charitable spending looks unlikely, added Rajiv Shah, who ran the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) from 2009 to 2015. If the 15 largest U.S. foundations, including giants such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, combined their donations, the total would not match the cuts proposed just to USAID funding by President Donald Trump's administration, Shah said. "This is not the kind of problem philanthropy can step in and solve - or should," he said. "These are public-sector responsibilities." But philanthropists can play a key role in restoring badly eroded public faith in aid spending, by tracking results and proving investments work, he said. They can also push money into ventures - such as off-grid solar ...
