Where Are India’s Heat Hotspots?

This commentary originally appeared in The Rand Blog. by Gulrez Shah Azhar and Jaime Madrigano Heat waves across the world have killed tens of thousands of people since the turn of the century. In the U.S., more people die from deaths related to heat than all other natural phenomena combined. Parts of West Asia are expected to become inhospitable to human life by the end of this century. And in recent years, India and neighboring regions have experienced several devastating heat waves, causing the country to increasingly focus on a growing global concern—rising temperatures as a public health threat.

This Bicycle Will Clean Polluted Air While You Pedal

For Architectural Digest, by Nick Mafi. As urban environments grow, particularly in emerging markets such as China, Brazil, and India, city smog is increasingly becoming a public health concern. Indeed, according to the World Health Organization, around 3 million deaths a year worldwide are attributable to air pollution. That’s one of many reasons why the Dutch artist and innovator Dan Roosegaarde has taken it upon himself to design a series of products to help curb the growing problems stemming from pollution. Last fall, Roosegaarde unveiled a series of 23-foot-high towers that, in essence, operate as a massive air purifier. But Roosegaarde wasn’t content only designing pollution-curbing buildings. He felt there was more he could do. And he was right. The implications could be enormous, particularly in urban environments where bike lanes are interwoven within the grid. The Dutch innovator recently unveiled a concept bicycle that, true to form, cleans polluted air while the rider pedals […]

Clean Energy Is Dirt Cheap — Unless You Live In Southeast Asia

Co-authored by Matt Sebonia Global Climate Capital Everywhere you look headlines scream clean energy progress in Asia. Whether it’s 4 cent solar in India or China’s world record solar Installations the clean energy train seems to have left the station. Everywhere that is except Southeast Asia. According to the IEA Southeast Asia has quietly increased its share of coal in the overall energy mix (by 7%) while clean energy development has been stagnant causing clean energy’s portion of the pie to actually decline (by 1%). Worse, the region is projected to add another 160 GW of new coal capacity by 2040 – roughly the size of India’s coal fleet today. That’s why it has catapulted into the number one position globally in CO2 growth per capita. In short, at a time when a clean energy transition is not only a real possibility, but an active reality in the two major Asian economies China and India, it’s missing in action across Southeast Asia […]

Saving Humans To Save Animals

Habitat loss. Human-wildlife conflict. Illegal poaching. These are just a few of the issues facing threatened, endangered, or vulnerable species around the world — whether it’s sloth bears or tigers in India, gray wolves in the United States, rhinos in Sumatra, or elephants in Africa and India. As an organization focused on wildlife conservation, we’ve seen it firsthand since the mid-1990s when Wildlife SOS was established. Working to resolve issues using outside-the-box problem solving, we’ve established various types of programs and campaigns that we feel are most likely to succeed in addressing the problem. Case in point: 20 years ago, the Taj Mahal had a problem right outside its walls that no one seemed to be talking about. As international and local tourists flocked to see this World Heritage site — one of the most beautiful and revered monuments in the world — they also saw an impoverished marginalized community called Kalandars trying to eke out a subsistence economy on the back of a cruel practice called “dancing bears.” Many who visited the Taj left saddened by the animal suffering and the glaring poverty. But the “dancing bear” problem ran much deeper than was visible to the naked eye: What was happening outside the Taj and indeed across India was a major conservation challenge pushing the endangered sloth bear rapidly toward extinction.
