Is the Methane in the US-Fracking wells warming the globe?

A satellite-based TROPOMI system study at Harvard University has revealed the methane leakage rate at Permian and other basins along New Mexico and Texas. The eleven months study from 2017 has shown that the leakage rate is twice higher than that assumed by the US Environmental Protection Agency. At average, the rate is1.9 percent higherContinue reading “Is the Methane in the US-Fracking wells warming the globe?”

What can we learn from COVID-19 effects on transportation emissions?

More than a quarter of energy related greenhouse gases emissions emanate from transport systems. The greenhouse gases emission since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has been on decline owing to the less movement and increased restrictions. However, this trend is likely to be short-lived once the pandemic is over. The world bank is thereforeContinue reading “What can we learn from COVID-19 effects on transportation emissions?”

CO-CULTURING OF RICE IN INDIA -ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE

Rice growing has been associated with 10% methane emission alongside high water usage. Among the greenhouse gases, methane gas has got 25 times Global warming potential than CO2. In attempt to mitigate the impacts of paddy farms, farmers in India have turned into co-culturing of fish alongside the rice farms. Studies have shown that thisContinue reading “CO-CULTURING OF RICE IN INDIA -ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE”

CLIMATE CHANGE INTENSIFY MEGA DROUGHTS IN US

A team of scientists at Columbia University has established that Climate change is catalyzing the megadroughts events in USA and Mexico. The Effects of these draughts includes incidences of wildfires, declined production by farmers and drying up of rivers i.e R. Colorado. Although it is projected that draughts would always occur even in absence ofContinue reading “CLIMATE CHANGE INTENSIFY MEGA DROUGHTS IN US”
