Global Warming: Facebook, Google headquarters face flood risks 24.4.2016 DNA: Top News
Even with about 170 countries coming together to reduce greenhouse gas emissions , optimism is running low. Global warming has indeed become an absolute reality, and even global giants cannot seem to escape its consequences. In a recent report by The Guardian, a team of scientists seem to be convinced that rising sea levels will be catastrophic for global giants like Facebook, Google and Cisco, as their campuses are at the risk of getting submerged by sea water. The team also noted that even if rapid cuts are made in greenhouse gas emissions and extreme repercussions are avoided, the companies might just face cut-off from others around the world. The social media giant Facebook's campus appears "most at risk", the report claims.  An extension of its Menlo Park base, the campus of Facebook at San Francisco Bay shoreline has an area of 430,300 square feet. Evidently, the elevation of the Facebook premises is not at all sufficient to protect it from a 1.6 feet rise in sea levels, that might occur at the end ...

Oscar-winning actor Leonardo Dicaprio has applauded United Nations leaders for signing a historic climate change agreement. The 41-year-old "The Revenant" star, who is a United Nations Messenger of Peace, spoke at a landmark gathering held in New York City on Earth Day, and saluted the representatives from 175 countries, who came to the meeting to sign the Paris Agreement on climate change into international law, reported Daily Telegraph. DiCaprio admitted his recent research into the issue left him "absolutely terrified" about what will happen to the planet if greenhouse gas emissions are not addressed. "Our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong. "After 21 years of debates and conferences, it is time to declare: no more talk, no more excuses, no more 10-year studies, no more allowing the fossil fuel companies to manipulate and dictate the science and policies that affect our future," he said. The longtime environmental advocate also suggested the issue of ...
