Human operations cause an impact on the worldwide ecology, which can have severe ramifications for our future lives. Variations in the Earth’s atmosphere gas content, partly due to CO2 and other “GHG” emissions, may result in a spike in temperatures with significant geographical and spatial volatility, changes in global flow dynamics, and a substantial reorganization of climatic conditions. In this work, we examine these and other factors to relate glacier and permafrost melting, soil water loss, and flood risk. This research investigates all of the characteristics mentioned above and connects them using a common issue in each. We will be able to provide a comprehensive answer to these cross-cutting challenges in this manner.
When our forefathers figured out a way to mine and burn fossil fuel to run machines, they built a network connecting all corners of the planet. Moving goods and people is now easier, faster, and cheaper than it has ever been before. Every one of us is a node in a wide transport network and a demand point in a global supply chain.
Carbonization can be defined as converting organic and solid substances into carbon-containing emissions, affecting the environment. The gas produced through the carbonization of the materials like steel or timber creates deadly effects on human health and the environment (Hu et al., 2010). The emphasis of the study is entirely based on the construction industry determining the effects of carbonization of the materials used, including steel, timber, and sand. Hence, the study will provide an in-depth analysis of the strategic implementation of decarbonization in the construction sector to mitigate the effects of carbon emissions that affect the environment and human health (Farooq et al., 2019).
Not so long ago, Air pollution dropped across the world during the quarantine decreed because of COVID-19, with outstanding images illustrating the considerable drop in CO2 emissions. The drop in nitrogen dioxide emissions across the planet was caused mainly by the new behavioural changes; over a number of months, there were hardly any cars on the streets in cities in which the authorities had decreed confinement. In China, CO2 emissions dropped by 25% in March 2020!
Water covers two-thirds of the world, but only 1% of it is suitable for human use. On Earth, there are 326 million trillion gallons of water. The remaining 97 per cent is saltwater, which is unfit to drink. Freshwater makes up 2.5 per cent of the total, but most of it is locked in the poles or deep below. This leaves us with about 0.4 per cent to distribute among the 7 billion people on the planet.
This report discusses the rising market demand for lithium and the land reserves of lithium is going to be depleted by the end of 2080. That’s why there is a need to find some alternative. As rejected brine seawater contains a lot amount of lithium, there is a need to extract that lithium from the seawater. The process description and working of the electrochemical cell are explained in this report. A comparison of different techniques to extract lithium is also provided and the best possible techniques so far are discussed which was practically performed by the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and some results of this experiment have also been shared.
The government guarantees issued official documents, and it effectively takes the role of the guarantor of the documents’ validity. However, traditional ID documents are not easy to use in a digital context, which brings us to acknowledge the importance of digital identity, which can fulfil the need for verifiable personal information while allowing users to bridge the gap between the online and the real world.
4 weeks before COP26 in Glasgow. The belief that the world leaders will actually act has long vanished. But one thought comes up. Would it not be great if the climate crisis would be solved by an alliance of people, institutions and companies, that are willing to take actual steps toward a carbon-free economy and world?
In this blog series, I asked people with specific expertise in their respective fields to write articles for me based on the questions I formulated. This resulted in short summaries and blog articles about what we have to understand as problematic in the area of climate, what we can expect from future climate development, what solutions there are in different areas and what we may have to do about it.
Our planet is changing. We need to help it change for the better and we’re asking for your help to do that! There are a lot of things that affect our planet in a bad way but the good news is that everyone can help to reduce them and do their bit for the environment.
