'Paying people to conserve trees could cut carbon emissions' 21.7.2017 deccanherald.com
Paying people to conserve their trees could be a highly cost-effective way to reduce deforestation and carbon emission and should be a key part of the global strategy to fight climate change, scientists say. The study, led by Seema Jayachandran, associate professor at Northwestern University in the US, sought to evaluate how effective "Payments for Ecosystems" (PES) is at reducing deforestation. PES is a programme in which people are given financial rewards for pro-environment behaviours. In the study, people who owned forest in 60 villages in western Uganda were given cash rewards if they kept their forest intact and refrained from deforesting it. Forest owners in another 61 villages in western Uganda received no monetary incentives. "We found that the programme had very large impacts on forest cover. In the villages without the programme, 9 per cent of the tree cover that was in place at the start of the study was gone by the end of it, two years later," said Jayachandran. "In the villages with the PES ...

Promise of renewable energy 10.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Consternation concerning climate change and global warming, primarily due to the overuse of fossil fuels, as expressed in the United Nations Climate Change Conference that was held in Paris and other conferences has led several countries to explore renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. Global carbon dioxide levels have already crossed the 400 ppm mark. Populous countries like China and India still generate substantial power from coal. The burning of two billion tonnes of coal every year could, in about two decades, increase the carbon dioxide by a further 30 to 40 ppm. Moreover, the recent decision of the Trump administration to back out of the Paris Accord would further set back efforts to decarbonise energy sources, making it difficult to keep global temperature rise to less than two degrees Celsius. Unless the world's largest economies drastically cut down on the use of coal and oil, any talk of arresting global warming would be a mirage. High carbon emissions However, several steps ...
