The UNEP?WMO assessment of Ozone layer recovery report developed by 300 scientists from 36 countries says that ozone layer is on recovery path. Unique success for global environment. But we can accelerate the recovery by 11 years!.
Amazing example, of how 196 countries continue to find even more success for Ozone layer recovery , while same countries are engaged in the wordy debate over climate change issues.
The inconvenient truth is not that global warming is undeniably unequivocal but that we are unable to address it with the required urgency. And the convenient truth is not that India is entering a demographic dividend period and has a demagogue prime minister, but that India is yet to draw a road map to leverage these rewards and gains to deal with the climate change. The unfortunate fact is that the developing countries are eternally arguing for international climate finances that are unlikely to come so easily, as is evident from the Lima (Peru) negotiations - Firstpost
Can Modi bowl a spin at Lima Pitch to lead by 'Good Climate Governance'. Unprecedented opportunity for implementing his own agenda
to Experts believe that a solar boom is both feasible and necessary in order to reign in warming to safe levels.
It is not rocket science. And makes perfect business sense. Investment $ 44 trillion over next 35 years and saving of more than $100. Why Warren Buffets and Gates of the world help making that investment.
Today's launch of Synthesis Report of IPCC is the fourth over last 13 months. Humanity’s influence on the global climate, impacts and solutions is being detailed for yet another times. World will be snoozing .
Wake up alarm. We have heard it before. Ever closing window of opportunity to take action to address climate change is allowing weak light of hopes in.

SACRAMENTO Calif. (Reuters) - The California state legislature enacted a ban on plastic grocery bags on Friday near the end of its two-year session, a measure that if signed into law would become the first
Republican attorneys general have formed an unprecedented, secretive alliance with some of the nation’s top energy producers to push back against the Obama regulatory agenda, an investigation by The New York Times has found.
Can we raise another Fund called ' Climate Corruption Fund' to pay these Attorneys more than Energy companies pay them? That may be the part of Paris-2015 negotiations
28 countries in EU have the decarbonization targets : 40 percent cut in greenhouse gas emissions by by 2030, compared with 1990 levels. More important agreement was on the use of renewable energy to 27% in the total energy mix and increase energy efficiency to at least 27%.
Pathbreaking agreement indeed, considering the deflationary pressure that EU faces today. The EU is already on target to cut its CO2 emissions by 20% by 2020, compared with 1990 emission levels.Inspiration for others leading toParis agreement in 2015?
New Delhi will participate in talks on limiting heat-trapping HFC gases and take steps toward renewable fuels.
Path-breaking coalition between India and USA. HFCs-Thousands of times more dangerous GHGs will be phased down and energy efficiency of air conditioning will be phased-up. Let us walk to gather for the development of all- ( Chale sath sath . Sabaks saath sbka vikas)
The People’s Climate March in Manhattan was a spectacle even for a city known for doing things big, and it was joined, in solidarity, by demonstrations on Sunday across the globe, from Paris to Papua New Guinea.

It sometimes feels as if environmental news is never good news, but that certainly isn’t true when it comes to the ozone layer. The UN has announced that the ozone layer is showing “signs of recovery…
During 1985 to 1987 the world leaders had difficult negotiations to save the Ozone Layer. But when the going gets tough, tough gets going. UNEP's 2014 Scientific Assessment for the first time provides the first signs that ozone is on the upswing. In particular, if you look at observations in the Northern mid-latitudes at an altitude of 42 km, we see that ozone has increased over the 2000 to 2013 period.
It has been said that the single most powerful thing one can do to combat climate change and promote peace is to plant a tree. Jadev Payeng has been doing just that since the 1970's on the once-barren sandbar on the banks of the Brahmaputra River in Assam, India. Over 40 years later, the forest he's planted is now larger than New York City's Central Park and is home to several thousand varieties of trees as well as an amazing diversity of wildlife, including rhino, elephants, and even tigers.
