Our Mother Earth!!!

Everyday we hear some or the other news related to environment and Climate change but hardly of us pay attention to the depth and seriousness of the topic taking it too lightly always

Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the first part of its Sixth Assessment Report (AR6) titled Climate Change 2021.It is prepared by the scientists of Working Group-I. The two remaining parts would be released in 2022.

It clearly says The average surface temperature of the Earth will cross 1.5 °C over pre-industrial levels in the next 20 years (By 2040) and 2°C by the middle of the century without sharp reduction of emissions.This is the first time that the IPCC has said that the 1.5°C warming was inevitable even in the best case scenario.Coastal areas will see continued sea-level rise throughout the 21st century, resulting in coastal erosion and more frequent and severe flooding in low-lying areas affecting each one of us.

None of us will be free of the impact we and our families all are going to face it .What is required is an urgent step from every individual out there . There is a need for a drastic and immediate cut in carbon emissions, given that the changes to the climate already made are not reversible.

Every small step you take has the power to bring the change…………………………………………..

Unpacking the Global Resource Outlook 2024

In an era where the echoes of sustainability resonate more profoundly than ever, a group of determined interns—Aarav, Razia Karim, Diksha Yadav, Washim Ahmed, Sanjana, and Godavari—have embarked on a crucial mission. Their goal: to decode the dense scientific discourse of the Global Resource Outlook 2024 into a language that speaks directly to the heart of our communities. This document, a pivotal analysis of our planet’s resource use, calls for an urgent shift towards sustainable practices to address the pressing crises of climate change, biodiversity loss, and pollution. By translating these insights into accessible knowledge, our interns aim to ignite a movement towards sustainability, fostering community engagement, influencing behavioral change, and advocating for policies that protect our natural world. Join us on this journey of discovery, learning, and action as we strive towards a sustainable and equitable future for all.
