Hurdles abound for migratory birds 21.11.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
At whatever moment you read these words, there are birds aloft in the skies, migrating. A skein of geese, a stand of flamingoes, a cast of falcons, all bound for a destination which promises warmer weather, abundant food or a chance to find a partner. Migration is indeed, "the one truly unifying natural phenomenon in the world, stitching the continent together in a way that even the great weather systems, which roar out from the poles but fizzle at the equator, fail to do,"as Scott Weidensaul describes in one of his books. The fact that delicate looking creatures such as the birds can take monumental journeys across the planet for days and months in itself proves how significant a role migration plays in our natural world. And yet, rather than being in awe of this magnanimous feat of the birds, humans have begun to make these journeys more challenging and in some cases life threatening for the birds. From climate change, habitat destruction to hunting, the modern day bird migration has hurdles abound for ...

Climate-threatened nations aim for 100 percent renewable energy 21.11.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
A group of the countries most at risk from climate change said they would strive to make their energy production 100 percent renewable "as rapidly as possible", as part of efforts to limit global warming to below 1.5 degrees Celsius. The Climate Vulnerable Forum (CVF), which numbers 48 nations, also committed to update their climate action plans submitted as part of the U.N. climate pact agreed in Paris last year and prepare low-carbon development strategies for mid-century, both before 2020. But they emphasised they would need additional funding for more ambitious steps to reduce emissions and protect their people from extreme weather and rising seas. "Today's commitment by the member countries of the Climate Vulnerable Forum to move toward powering their economies entirely with renewable energy is a bold vision that sets the pace for the world's efforts to implement the Paris Agreement and move even more quickly to solve the climate crisis," former U.S. Vice President Al Gore said in a ...

India, other emerging markets investing more in clean energy: John Kerry 17.11.2016 DNA: India
The renewable energy boom is not limited to industrialised countries as emerging economies like India have invested more in such technologies than developed world, US Secretary of State John Kerry today said. Stressing on adoption of clean technologies by nations, Kerry, speaking at the UN climate talks here, said nearly 20 million new asthma cases a year in India linked to coal-related air pollution. "Now, significantly, the renewable energy boom isn't limited to industrialised countries, and that's important to note. In fact, emerging economies like China, India, and Brazil invested even more in renewable technologies last year than the developed world," he said. "China alone invested more than 100 billion dollars. Ultimately, clean energy is expected to be a multi-trillion dollar market the largest market the world has ever known. And no nation will do well if it sits on the sidelines, handicapping its new businesses from reaping the benefits of the clean-tech explosion," he said in his speech. Noting ...
