article image GLOBAL WARMING and climate change refer to an increase in average global temperatures mainly by causing the reduction in escape of infrared waves back to space. Emission of infrared radiation into space is an important mechanism by which the earth loses heat and cools down. Atmospheric pollution by molecules that hinder the escape of the infrared radiation affects the temperature regulatory mechanisms of the earth and thus affects the climate. Climate change is already impacting…Read More

article image STAFF REPORT ISB: Meteorologists and environmental experts have termed the rapid increase of greenhouse gases (Chlorofluorocarbons) as the potential cause of climatic variations and rising temperature in Islamabad. According to them, Pakistan is already among the top ten countries where unusual weather patterns were making major environment impacts and the situation might further deteriorate in the coming years if attention was not paid to issues related to climate change. "The…Read More

Livestock sector and green-house gases emission: Issues and options

article image Leading organisations working on environmental protection, food security and climate change have realised the role of livestock in GHG emission. There are two major types of GHG emission through livestock animals. Direct GHG emission is the portion evolved directly through animal body by enteric fermentation in ruminants and urine discharge. Moreover, the decomposition of manure is also part of it. Indirect GHG emission involves the emission through fertilizer application and production …Read More

article image Livestock production plays a key role in the life of farmers. In global food production it provides food, income, employment and many other contributions to rural development and also has part of local landscapes and ecosystems for eras. In human society it also contributes by food, employment, nutrients and incomes which are helpful for the economy of the country. Animals for the sake of food vastly contribute in the production of greenhouse gases so there is a need for the awareness…Read More

article image Sidra CheemaTHE PROTECTION of Ozone layer has received a wider significance especially after the threats to the very survival of the planet earth are constantly on the rise across the world. Greenhouses gases emission has emerged as the potential reason behind the rising danger. Environmentalists, climatologists, earth scientists and meteorologists have strongly stressed the need for eliminating the hydrochlorofluorocarbons, or HCFCs, a greenhouse gas that are damaging the ozone, and this can…Read More
