Question
The Paris Agreement is an international agreement to fight climate change. It was adopted by 197 countries in December 2015 and aims to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Parties are committed to reach the peak of their greenhouse gas emissions ...

Question
Greenhouse effect refers to the process whereby radiation from the atmosphere of the planet warms the planet's surface to a temperature above that which would prevail in the absence of that atmosphere. To simplify, here is the step-by-step process of the ...

Question
Global warming: is the increase in global temperatures that is mainly caused by increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Climate change: is the increasing changes in the measures of climate over a long-term period. It includes precipitation, temperature and ...

Question
When large explosive eruptions occur, large amounts of volcanic gas, aerosol droplets and ash are blown into the stratosphere. The injected ash has little effect on climate change because it falls quickly from the stratosphere.But volcanic gases like sulphur dioxide ...

Question
Tar sands are a deposit of fossil fuels. These sands can be either a loose sand or partially consolidated sandstone that contains a naturally occurring mixture of sand, water, clay and bitumen - a viscous type of oil. They are ...

Question
We cannot solve climate change by planting trees alone. Of course, trees can help by absorbing and storing CO2, but the main cause of global warming is greenhouse gases that trap heat in our atmosphere. Therefore, we need to reduce ...

Question
We can reduce carbon emission through protecting ecosystems and preventing further destruction of forests. Since trees and plants absorb CO2, large-scale afforestation and restoration of degraded ecosystems such as wetlands are also potentially significant methods of carbon dioxide ...

Question
Carbon capture is the process of capturing CO2 from large emission sources (power plants, gas processing plants, industrial plants) and then compressing it before transporting it to places where the CO2 can either be used or stored.

Question
No,  silver bullets don't exist and we can't wait and wish for them. In order to fight climate change, we have to take urgent action to cut fossil fuels and protect forests and nature. 

Question
Forests are essential in the fight against climate change. We cannot live without protecting them. Forests store and absorb carbon, give people a livelihood and provide fertile soil and water for surrounding areas. If we lose it, it would have ...
