Greenhouse gases surge to new highs worldwide in 2017: US report 1.8.2018 DNA: India
Planet-warming greenhouse gases surged to new highs as abnormally hot temperatures swept the globe and ice melted at record levels in the Arctic last year due to climate change, a major US report said today. The annual State of the Climate Report, compiled by more than 450 scientists from over 60 countries, describes worsening climate conditions worldwide in 2017, the same year that US President Donald Trump pulled out of the landmark Paris climate deal. The United States is the world's second leading polluter after China, but has rolled back environmental safeguards under Trump, who has declared climate change a "Chinese hoax" and exited the Paris deal signed by more than 190 nations as a path toward curbing harmful emissions. The 300-page report issued by the American Meteorological Society and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration mentioned the word "abnormal" a dozen times, referring to storms, droughts, scorching temperatures and record low ice cover in the Arctic. Last year, the top ...

China floods to hit US economy: climate effects through trade chains 29.5.2018 General News
Intensifying river floods could lead to regional production losses worldwide caused by global warming. This might not only hamper local economies around the globe - the effects might also propagate through the global network of trade and supply chains, a study now published in Nature Climate Change shows.It is the first to assess this effect for flooding on a global scale, using a newly developed dynamic economic model. It finds that economic flood damages in China, which could, without further adaption, increase by 80 percent within the next 20 years, might also affect European Union (EU) and United States industries.The US economy might be specifically vulnerable due to its unbalanced trade relation with China.Contrary to US president Trump's current tariff sanctions, the study suggests that building stronger and thus more balanced trade relations might be a useful strategy to mitigate economic losses caused by intensifying weather extremes."Climate change will increase flood risks .

Climate change and cricket: This is what Boards are doing to ensure we have full games 25.5.2018 DNA: Money
Earlier this month, a series of thunderstorms and dust storms left a lot of destruction in five north Indian states. A number of factors including unusually high temperatures in Rajasthan, western disturbances, and cyclonic circulation over Haryana, just to name a few were the main factors. While people have said that it was a freak accident, experts say that climate change will likely fuel more such storms. Climate change has had adverse effects on our lives, and in the process, has also affected the way we play sports. A report by Climate Coalition, a UK-based group that studied climate change, examined its impact on a range of sports. The report adds that recreational cricket is most at threat due to fixture disruption and damage to facilities. Citing Glamorgan Cricket Club in Cardiff, the report says that since 2000, they have lost more than 1300 hours of cricket – equivalent to 217 days or at least 20,000 overs. "Across the whole County Championship, at least 175 days - around 16,000 overs - have ...

Five people, including a four-year-old child, were killed instantly in a lightning strike in southwestern Cambodia, officials said, as the onset of the rainy season draws near. The group was sheltering from a downpour in a mountainous area of Koh Kong province's Thmar Baing district on Thursday, police chief for minor crimes Lay Meng Laing told AFP yesterday, adding that three victims were from the same family. The tropical Southeast Asian country of winding rivers and lakes is prone to lightning storms, a problem that some believe is worsening with the ravages of climate change. Keo Vy, a spokesman for Cambodia's National Committee for Disaster Management, said the number of lightning deaths has now reached 50 people since January, while 41 died last year in the same period. He said the government had conducted education seminars to warn residents in rural areas about the threats, encouraging them to avoid taking shelter under a tree and not to stand in pools of water.

Frequent western disturbances behind thunderstorms in north India: Experts 14.5.2018 General News
Something is unusual about the summer this year, weather experts say. The month of May, which is not yet over, has so far witnessed three western disturbances, leading to furious thunderstorms and dust storms across swathes of northern India in which more than 150 people have died. Thunderstorms, dust storms, rainfall during summers have been a normal phenomenon in northern India. "But not of this severity. The frequency of western disturbance is unusually high," said Mahesh Pahlawat, vice-president (Meteorology and Climate Change) at Skymet, a private weather forecasting agency. Mritunjay Mohapatra, additional director general of India Meteorological Department, said May alone has witnessed three western disturbances until now while April saw one.
