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 ...

India ready to work above and beyond Paris deal to reduce greenhouse gas emissions: Sushma Swaraj 20.9.2017 DNA: Top News
 India today reaffirmed its commitment to the landmark Paris climate change agreement, saying it is willing to "work above and beyond" the pact to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, during a UN 'Leadership Summit on Environment Pact', said that India had been at the forefront of the debate on environment and development. Her remarks came amid uncertainty over the US role in the deal after President Donald Trump in June announced that America was withdrawing from the Paris deal, arguing that it gives undue advantage to countries like India and China. India, which is the world's third largest carbon polluter, along with more than 190 nations reached a pact in December 2015 with an aim to prevent an increase in the global average temperature and keep it well below 2 degrees Celsius. The deal, which replaced the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, was ratified last October. Participating in the UN meet hosted by Secretary General Antonio Guterres, Swaraj said India was willing to work ...

Hot spots in a frigid ocean 11.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Climate change will dramatically alter life in the oceans, scientists say, but there is so much still to learn about marine ecosystems that it is hard to know exactly how. Recently, researchers with the British Antarctic Survey offered a glimpse of that future with the results of an unusual study years in the making. The study was published in the journal Current Biology. The cold, dry ecosystems on Antarctica itself cannot support anything bigger than an insect. But the Antarctic Ocean swirling around the continent paradoxically teems with life. Climate change is a big concern here, because heat-trapping gases such as carbon dioxide are having their biggest effects near the poles. Computer models predict that in 50 years the Antarctic Ocean will warm by about 1.8°F, and by 3.6°F within a century. "We're going to start to see changes there first," said Gail V Ashton, an author of the study and a marine ecologist now at the Smithsonian Environmental Research Centre, USA. Trying to predict those ...
