What is COP26 & why does India committed Net-Zero by 2070?

The UNFCCC calls this summit every year with the agenda of a global agreement on the fight against climate change. All countries participated in the COP26 summit, like India, the USA, the EU, Australia, etc. participate in this summit. This year in 2021, the summit is named COP26. It is critical to understand the reason and importance of the same.

In the late 80s, world leaders recognized that global temperature is increasing, and it will create a dreadful climate effect. Agenda 21 was ratified at the Summit in Rio De Janerio in 1992. This agenda 21 was nothing to do with any numerical series of events. It is based on the global temperature limit proposed to save the world by the 21st century. Hence the name Agenda 21.

UNFCCC received responsibility for this global issue in the Rio 1992 meeting. UNFCCC is a United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.

Note for Diwali 2021 – Climate Change impacts and after effects

I would like to start by wishing everyone a happy Diwali. This Festival of Light symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. And this is the core thought area for my blog today. Where I would relate the significance of Diwali for fighting Climate Change.

One of the significant events happening alongside Diwali is COP26. This is by far one of the most ambitious and needful events of this era. Where world leaders have come together to discuss the right decisions to be taken on climate change. All global leaders have represented and submitted their approach and policies to reduce the carbon emissions of their respective countries. And as of today, i.e., the 3rd of October 2021, more than 190 countries have pledged towards this greater cause.

How Blockchain can help fight Climate Change?

Blockchain is a word that is widely understood as some sought of a digital payment mechanism. Because people tend to relate it with Bitcoin, they limit Blockchain potential to just money transfers. But Blockchain is way bigger than that and represents a technology in itself. Digital Currency usage, or for that matter, Bitcoin is one of the use cases of Blockchain, and climate change can be another use case.

The focus of this blog is to explain the use of the Blockchain for fighting against climate change. It will not help you to learn Blockchain as a subject. If you are reading this, then you probably have heard the buzzword blockchain and are willing to understand its use case alongside Climate Change.

Blockchain is a system that keeps information safe. It is like programmed storage that encrypts the data and then stores it in a distributed fashion. For example, you want to send unalterable sensitive data to someone with acknowledgment, you can use Blockchain for this.

Are drones the climate lifeguard? Can it handle Climate Change?

Our planet is on a brink of an environmental disaster. Global temperatures are rising, with stark consequences for many of the things that we take for granted. Advanced technological innovations like drones, artificial intelligence, machine learning, etc. are crucial for climate mitigation.

Fortunately, there is a technology that has emerged to gather data:

  • For conservation projects
  • To support the work of environmental researchers
  • Playing a key role in implementing sustainable solutions
  • Helping in the fight against the odds created by climate effects, and
  • To service renewable energy infrastructure.

And it can do all of those things in a way that’s better, easier, faster, cheaper, and safer than before. We are speaking about Drones! These flying robots are tackling climate change from multiple angles. Improving the efficiency of solar and wind farms, protecting endangered species, and supporting the work of scientists across the world.

Drones are powering Earth’s sustainable future, and by the end of this blog, you will agree with me.

Drones, which we all see associated with filmmaking or military, are being used to combat climate change as well. And it is a very crucial shift in our technological capability for combatting climate change. Information is key, and timely received information is gold, and that’s one of the primary use cases of Drones. But it’s not limited to that, drones have bigger potentials.
