Make wise use of forests “When planting trees is a curse” (March 1-15, 2014) was an insightful editorial on the economics of forests. The focus of our policymakers has shifted from productivity to conservation. About 20 per cent of the country’s land area is covered by forests. We need to use this resource to enhance productivity.

Melting season in Arctic longer by about five days: NASA report

Issue Date: Apr 4, 2014
The length of the melt season for Arctic sea ice is growing by several days each decade, says a new study by National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) of the US and NASA researchers. The report, recently published in Geophysical Research Letters, also says that an earlier start to the melt season is allowing the Arctic Ocean to absorb enough additional solar radiation in some places to melt as much as four feet of the Arctic ice cap’s thickness.

But dirty and polluting coal evokes emotions in environmentally concerned people. Coal-based power provides 40 per cent of the world’s electricity and emits one-third of global carbon dioxide, which is pushing the world to climate change.

Accelerated ice melts in Greenland triggers alarm

Issue Date: Mar 19, 2014
The northeastern part of Greenland has been experiencing huge amounts of ice loss since the past decade, triggering alarm in the scientific community. The ocean in this region was believed to be stable and not contributing much to the rising sea levels. The phenomenon started in early 2000s when Greenland witnessed regional warming. High temperature removed the barriers of ice debris in the northeastern part of the island. The barriers had so far prevented melted ice from falling into the ocean.
