Fifty years after humans first left bootprints in the lunar dust, it’s an enticing idea. The effort and the commitment of brainpower and money, and the glorious achievement itself, shine as an international example of what people can do when they set their minds to it. The spinoff technologies ended up affecting all of our lives. So why not do it all over again — but instead of going to another astronomical body and planting a flag, why not save our own planet? Why not face it with the kind of inspiration … [Read more...] about We Went to the Moon. Why Can’t We Solve Climate Change?
Behold, Project Trumpmore. Project Trumpmore A Finnish climate group is attempting to raise half a million dollars in order to carve President Donald Trump's face into a glacier. The glacial art project, spearheaded by the Finland-based group Melting Ice, has been dubbed "Project Trumpmore." Trump has frequently exhibited scepticism about climate change, at times referring to it as a "hoax." A Finnish climate group is attempting to raise half a million dollars in order to carve President Donald Trump's face into a glacier. The glacial art project, spearheaded by the Finland-based group Melting Ice, has been dubbed "Project Trumpmore." In a press release, Melting Ice chairman Nicolas Prieto said, "Global warming is one of the most important issues and topics of today. There are still people who ponder whether it's a real issue.

On Tuesday, the Indian leader will meet U.S. President Barack Obama, which will be followed by an address to a joint session of Congress.A key issue that the two leaders are likely to discuss is climate change. India and the U.S. are among over 170 countries that signed the Paris climate agreement, but are yet to join the accord — which involves making commitments to adhere to the emissions reduction pledges outlined in it. The two countries together account for over 20 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions and their joining is thus important for the treaty to come into effect.However, while the U.S. has pledged to join as soon as possible, India … [Read more...] about Narendra Modi-Barack Obama Meeting: Climate Change, Defense Ties To Figure In Talks
World Climate Change United Nations Paris Climate Agreement A senior United Nations (U.N.) official has warned that government inaction has put the world on track to a catastrophic climate change situation, in which the global community fails to keep temperature rises below the vital 2 degree Celsius (3.6 degree Fahrenheit) cap. The warning comes ahead of climate-change discussions in Bangkok, Thailand, this week. Patricia Espinosa, who is head of the Executive Secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), said nations have been too slow to reach to the threats posed by global warming. In an interview with Reuters on Sunday, Espinosa said this year’s extreme weather is just a taste of what is to come, and that she hopes the heat waves, floods and forest fires seen across the globe “will create a bigger sense of urgency.” Firefighters battle flames near Yosemite National Park, California, U.S., on August 6, 2018.
