Know : 22 Reasons : Why We Need Trees?

Trees combat the climate change Excess carbon dioxide (CO2) caused by many factors is a building up in our atmosphere and contributing to climate change. Trees absorb CO2, removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air. In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the amount of CO2 produced when you drive your car…

Know : Rainwater Harvesting – Complete Info

The fresh water available in the earth is just 3%. Rain is one of the major sources of Freshwater, which we hardly consider preserving. Rainwater harvesting is a technique of collection and storage of rainwater into natural reservoirs or tanks, or the infiltration of surface water into subsurface aquifers (before it is lost as surface runoff). Even we can collect…

Know : Atmospheric Circulation

Atmospheric circulation is the large-scale movement of air, and the means (together with the smaller ocean circulation) by which thermal energy is distributed on the surface of the Earth. The large-scale structure of the atmospheric circulation varies from year to year, but the basic climatological structure remains fairly constant. Individual weather systems – mid-latitude depressions, or tropical convective cells – occur “randomly”, and it is…

Know : Weakening Trade Winds and Global Warming

The Coriolis Effect makes the trade winds appear to be curving to the west, whether they are traveling to the equator from the south or north. The trade winds (also called trades) are the prevailing pattern of easterly surface winds found…

Documentary : Earth in 1000 years (31min)

This edition of COSMIC JOURNEYS explores the still unfolding story of Earth’s past and the light it sheds on the science of climate change today. While that story can tell us about the mechanisms that can shape our climate. It’s still the unique conditions of our time that will determine sea levels, ice coverage, and temperatures. Ice, in its varied…

Documentary : A World Without Water (must watch)

As less and less water is available, you have yet another problem being added and that is the problem of privatization. There are companies now saying why don’t we bottle it, mine it, divert it, sell it, commodify it. That greed of privatization, we believe, will be much worse than climate change and everything else that has left us with the water…
