Tackling climate change 27.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Fijian singers, strumming ukuleles, serenaded the delegates to the United Nations climate talks as they entered the conference hall. A traditional two-hulled sailing craft, or drua, is on display by the entrance to signify that when it comes to rising seas, all nations are in the same boat. But as two weeks of negotiations on bolstering the Paris agreement draw to a close, island leaders say the decor seems a cruel taunt. Fiji, a sunny island nation in the South Pacific, is the official host of the climate discussions here in chilly Bonn, Germany. But leaders say their hopes that island issues would take centre stage have mostly been dashed. Almost none of the measures to help their countries adapt to the impacts of global warming have been resolved. "Im anxious and Im fearful," said Allen Michael Chastanet, prime minister of St Lucia. "It cant be that a prime ministers only resource is to get down on his knees on the side of a bed and pray." From rising seas to the loss of fresh water, islands are among ...

NGT refuses to set aside green clearance for Amaravati capital 19.11.2017 DNA: Mumbai
In a relief for the Andhra Pradesh (AP) government, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday declined to set aside the environmental clearance (EC) for building of the new capital city Amaravati and allowed the project to go ahead, subject to set of stringent conditions for environment protection. The verdict was passed by a three-member bench headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar after hearing a batch of pleas that challenged the project on environmental grounds and the project's EC. The pleas had said the Capital city would harm the fertile agricultural lands in Krishna and Guntur districts and put at peril the floodplain and wetland ecology. The green court refused to set aside the EC after it was convinced that the new Capital would not harm the floodplains and wetlands. The bench also noted that the project had reached a stage of 'fait accompli' and thus demolishing the project would come at a huge financial, environmental and human cost. In the conditions it stipulated, the Tribunal directed the AP ...
