Wildfires in the USA

More than 6 million acres of American forests burned in 2020. California is still burning. Each acre of forest can absorb around 30,000 pounds of carbon dioxide. Not only is this natural carbon absorption tool now gone, but tons of carbon dioxide are also sent back to the atmosphere. Smoke and ash resulting from wildfires [...]

Why Global Warming is a Global Problem?

We have seen that outcomes of global warming impact different spots of the Earth differently. Despite this divergence in the outcomes, yet it is called global warming. Why? How are the outcomes globally interconnected?  Recently, Harvard researchers found that even global sea-level rise could be sensed differently around the Earth (1). This can be explained [...]

New insights about the fight against climate change

We have been informed about saving energy decades ago. It started with turning the extra lights off. Many still practice that, which is good! But that is not enough. According to new research in the USA, many people have a hard time understanding details about energy usage. What is the difference between the energy consumption [...]
