CLIMATE CHANGE AS IT AFFECTS THE HEALTH OF HUMANS

Climate variability and change threaten human health and well being. Changes in the greenhouse gas concentrations and other drivers alter the global climate and bring about myriad human health consequences. Environmental consequences of climate change, such as extreme heat waves, rising sea-levels, changes in precipitation resulting in  flooding and droughts, intense hurricanes, and degraded air quality, affect directly and indirectly the physical, social, and psychological health of humans.  For instance, changes in precipitation are creating changes in the availability and quantity of water, as well as resulting in extreme weather events such......

RAIN (ACID RAIN AND ITS EFFECTS)

Rain is liquid water in the form of droplets that have condensed from atmospheric water vapor and become heavy enough to fall under gravity. Rain is a major component of the water cycle and is responsible for depositing most of the fresh water on the Earth. It provides suitable conditions for many types of ecosystems, as well as water for hydroelectric power plants and crop irrigation. Acid Rain Acid rain is rain consisting of water droplets that are unusually acidic because of atmospheric pollution – most notably the excessive amounts of sulfur and nitrogen released by cars and industrial processes. Acid rain is also called acid deposition because this term includes......

World’s largest freshwater lake under threat from climate change and dam

Russia’s Lake Baikal, in eastern Siberia, holds one-fifth of all freshwater and is a global biodiversity hotspot. Of its 2,500 known animal species, 75 per cent are endemic – unknown anywhere else. Of particular note are the 350 species of amphipod shrimps, most of them endemic and gigantic in size, and its iconic freshwater seal (nerpa). Baikal also has enormous cultural significance for people of several faiths, including Buddhism and Shamanism, who live around its shores. But environmentalists are warning this fragile paradise, named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996, is......

Carbon in our environment

Carbon and its components are widely distributed in nature. The estimation is that carbon forms 0,032% of The Earth’s crust. Free carbon is found in big reservoirs like hard coal, amorphous form of the element with other complex compounds of carbon-hydrogen-nitrogen. Pure crystalline carbon is found in the form of graphite and diamond. The Earth’s atmosphere contains an ever-increasing concentration of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, form fossil fuel burning, and of methane (CH4), form paddy fields and cows. No element is more essential to life than carbon, because only carbon forms......
