There is considerable uncertainty over the effect of wind power on the operation of power systems, and the consequent greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions displacement; this is used to project emissions reductions that inform energy policy. Currently, it is approximated as the average emissions of the whole system, despite an acknowledgement that wind will actually displace only the generators operating on the margin.

Worldwide heat records have been broken again, with 2016 declared the hottest for a third consecutive year, a new report has revealed. 2016 was the hottest year on record globally for the third year in a row. Climate change was the dominant factor in driving the record-breaking heat worldwide.

Taking a global average of the land and sea surface temperatures for the entire year, NOAA found the data for "2016 was the highest since record keeping began in 1880," said the announcement.

After 2016 being declared the hottest year on record and the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) revealing that extreme weather patterns in 2016 were responsible for 1600 deaths in India, anothe

UDAIPUR: "Mother Earth is pregnant with problems and only the tribal way of life can save it from decay.

This paper examines the impact of global sea level rise (SLR) on the economic growth, migration, and tourism from various empirical studies and consolidates several sea level projections by 2100 under different scenarios.

NASA and NOAA announced today that 2016 was the hottest year on record globally - and the 3rd year in a row of record warming

The State of India’s Environment 2017, an annual publication from Down To Earth magazine released by Sunita Narain at the Jaipur Literature Festival  is a unique, one-of-its-kind compilation of information, opinion and data on environment and development in India.  It contains a clump of disturbing data 

Although many ecological properties of species respond to climate change, their evolutionary responses are poorly understood. Here, we use data from long-term demographic studies to predict evolutionary responses of three herbaceous perennial orchid species, Cypripedium parviflorum, C. candidum and Ophrys sphegodes, to predicted climate changes in the habitats they occupy. We focus on the evolution of sprouting probability, because all three species exhibit long-term vegetative dormancy, i.e. individual plants may not emerge above-ground, potentially for several consecutive years.

Nonhuman primates, our closest biological relatives, play important roles in the livelihoods, cultures, and religions of many societies and offer unique insights into human evolution, biology, behavior, and the threat of emerging diseases. They are an essential component of tropical biodiversity, contributing to forest regeneration and ecosystem health. Current information shows the existence of 504 species in 79 genera distributed in the Neotropics, mainland Africa, Madagascar, and Asia.
