In today’s world, one of the biggest problems that we are faced with is how much influence does climate change have on our lives or how bad has it gotten. However, one of our most recent concerns is how we can change back what we have already damaged.
Point of concern
In India, people have been very concerned after the Ockhi cyclone hit the country last November. With its devastating effects, people have become more and more aware of how close to a disaster that may be so they are planning on fixing that issue.
How will they monitor future problems?
They are planning on creating a Climate Change Cell, a thing which can monitor the humidity, the temperature, the amounts of rainfall and even the atmospheric pressure levels in order to come up with ways to keep them at a constant level.
The CC Cell, as it has been called, is a project that was developed in the last week of February by the Directorate of Environment and Climate Change. This is going to monitor any climate change activities in the whole state. In the supporting staff there is going to be an environmental scientist, and environment program manager and an environmental engineer. There will also be climate change officers in each of the state’s departments, the maximum number of them being three.
What do officials have to say?
An Environment Directorate officer said that the fact that India depends a lot on natural resources, such as water, and that it is a country that relies on agriculture and fishing makes it very vulnerable to any possible climate change situation. The goal of this new program is to change that. The four major climate zones that are going to be monitored by this program are Alappuzha, Palakkad, Wayanad and Idukki. Hopefully, this program is going to be successful and help India a lot in the future.
Shawn and his wife live remotely in a 880-square-foot cabin along with their three dogs. They implemented many of the things they learned from the internet and trial and error. They have been helped by so many contributors over the years and desire to now return the favor to other Canadian Homsteading readers. They heat with a woodstove and cut firewood by hand from their 11 acres. They went back to the land and are essentially do-it-yourself people.
