Indian environment management practitioners lack awareness about systems and tools to quantify greenhouse gas emissions even as climate changes are likely to impact agriculture in hilly and coastal areas, the Bureau of Indian Standards said today.
In the recent years, extra heat from greenhouse gases has been trapped in the subsurface waters of the Pacific and Indian oceans accounting for the slowdown in the global surface temperature increase observed during the past decade, shows a study.
Wayne Harrison, who once signed for Liverpool for £250,000 (299,000 euros), making him the world`s most expensive teenage footballer before his career spiralled into decline, has died at the age of 46, local media said.
India`s greenhouse gas emissions
(GHGs) have increased by 58 per cent to 1.9 billion tonnes
between 1994-2009, primarily from coal-based power sector that
nearly doubled its carbon footprint, a study has said.
Greenhouse gas emissions have fallen thanks to the global downturn, handing the world a chance to move away from high-carbon growth, a report said on Monday, citing an International Energy Agency study.
