बॉन कान्फ्रेंस 2017 की बात है। एलायंस आॅफ स्मॉल आईलैंड स्टेट्स (एओसिस) से जुड़े एक देश के बड़े नेता फूट-फूटकर रो रहे थे। एओसिस मतलब छोटे समुद्र द्वीपीय देशों का समूह। आसानी से समझने के लिए मालदीव जैसे देशों का समूह कहा जा सकता है। वहां विकसित और विकासशील देशों के प्रतिनिधियों के बीच बहस छिड़ी हुई थी। यूरोपीय समूह और अमेरिका जैसे देशों के प्रतिनिधियों का दबाव था कि चीन और भारत जैसे देश अपनी जिम्मेदारी समझें जो बहुत ज्यादा कार्बन का उत्सर्जन कर रहे हैं। दूसरी तरफ भारत-चीन जैसे देशों के कूटनीतिज्ञ विकसित मुल्कों को अपनी ऐतिहासिक जिम्मेदारी याद दिला रहे थे।...

Combating Triple Planetary Crisis through Mangroves

The triple planetary crisis refers to three interconnected environmental crises that pose a threat to humanity—climate change, pollution, and biodiversity loss.

No Rain, No Pain

In the past 123 years, the warmest February of our country was in 2023. A little later, Biparjoy became the most long-lasting cyclone of our last half-century. Currently, Delhi has recorded the highest rainfall in four decades. Flash floods, landslides, and extreme weather events are wreaking havoc across the country. India's battle with natural disasters is reaching alarming proportions. As all this fury becomes the new normal, experts attribute it to the escalating levels of climate crisis and global warming.

Book Review: The Mission and the Mangoes

Book Review: The Mission and the Mangoes

The Mission and the Mangoes is a work of fiction that sets its premise around a dystopic, water-starved Earth where unrestrained mining, drilling and the exhaustion of earth’s resources is rendering the planet unlivable. The young author of the book, 12-year-old Hena Parveen, tries to marry a futuristic setting where technological advancements such as humanoid robots and regular space exploration are a reality, with the Earth’s ecosystem that is hurtling towards an inevitable collapse. Interestingly, all this does not take place in a far-fetched future...

Therefore, keeping in mind the saying, van se vayu, vayu se aayu (air from forests, life from air), planting saplings is very important for conserving our environment...
