HYDERABAD: Forget the core city of Hyderabad; even peripheral or peri-urban areas are now under the threat of poisonous black carbon particulate matter.

This paper investigates factors behind the growth of carbon dioxide emissions over the 35 years between 1980 and 2015 in more than 100 countries, using an index decomposition technique (the Logarithmic Mean Divisia Index). The results are further confirmed using an econometric technique (the general method of moments).

A significant amount of the final energy demand of the manufacturing industry is in providing heating and cooling to processes and buildings. Renewable heating and cooling (RHC) technologies are one way to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with the generation of this heating and cooling demand.

Dry riverbeds are contributing more carbon emissions than previously thought, says a study that could help scientists better understand how to fight climate change.

The fact is that the storms of this year hold a mirror to our future

SHILLONG: The report of the carbon footprint of Meghalaya has revealed that in terms of carbon emissions, Meghalaya is doing better than Bhutan which is famous for its low carbon footprint.

Violating PPCB regulations, emitting black smoke much above the permissible limit

The Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB) has started the process to close two brick kilns in Faridkot.

NEW DELHI: The government is set to tighten fuel efficiency norms for vehicles to push automobile manufacturers to expedite the conversion of conventional internal combustion engines (IECs) to elec

The renewed upward march of global carbon emissions is worrying and a big step backwards in the fight against climate change, according to BP. Emissions rose 1.6% in 2017 after flatlining for the previous three years, which the British oil firm said was a reminder the world was not on track to hit the goals of the Paris climate deal.

A growing network of ice cores reveals the past 800,000 years of Antarctic climate and atmospheric composition. The data show tight links among greenhouse gases, aerosols and global climate on many timescales, demonstrate connections between Antarctica and distant locations, and reveal the extraordinary differences between the composition of our present atmosphere and its natural range of variability as revealed in the ice core record.
