behind the news


NASA (National Aeronautical Space Administration) is an American government organisation that conducts space research, and development activities related to Aeronautics. It regularly publishes reports and animated videos related to the Global Warming of the earth. These animated videos are based on their years of observation. This reports and videos serve as an indicator of how earth's local climate is changing. In one of the videos, it can be seen that when everything was normal i.e. earth's natural environment, it is depicted blue in colour- at the start of video reflecting earth's natural state in 1880. And towards the end of that video, we can see that the whole earth is red i.e. an alarming increase in earth's temperature. Did you know that the year 2017 was the hottest year for planet earth?

beyond the news


This is a very scary situation. This clearly shows that the efforts being taken by governments and common people are not turning out to be enough to tackle the problem of Global Warming. On an urgent basis, planting more trees and reducing the use of vehicles and devices that cause air pollution are the most critical need of the times.
