A vehicle scrapping facility was started in Noida today, partnered by The Maruti Suzuki and Toyota Tsusho Group. The joint venture aims to promote transparent, organized and eco-friendly dismantling of end-of-life vehicles (ELVs). The facility has an area of 10,993 sq metre and is equipped to scrap and recycle over 24,000 ELVs per year. About ₹44 crores have been invested for the project and it functions on technologically advanced and modern machines to break down and scrape ELVs in a scientific way.

As per the recent study conducted by European scientists, 2021 was the world’s fifth warmest year on record as the levels of global temperature and carbon and methane emissions were alarmingly soaring.
According to a new report published in the Advances in Atmospheric Sciences journal, the global temperature level of the oceans touched its maximum mark in the year 2021.
A new study conducted by the Researchers from the University of Exeter and the Met Office highlighted that the current rate of human-induced activities and climate actions could lead to global warming hitting the 4℃ mark by the end of this century.
America's coastline will see a rise in sea levels in the next 30 years as much as it did in the entire 20th century. Although the worst rise in sea levels because of melting glaciers is projected to hit by 2100, the current rise is alarming and is more of a consequence of warming of the ocean water due to the rise in average temperature of the planet.
The adverse effects of eating meat on the environment is largely because of the amount of resources that are needed to feed and grow the amount of livestock or poultry to serve such a large population of meat eating humans. Grazing cows and goats require large areas of open land which can otherwise be used for farming. Grass eating animals also emit methane and nitrous oxide as they digest food which is harmful for the environment as they are GHGs. They also consume large amounts of water.
A study conducted by the United Nations Environmental Programme(UNEP) says that there will be a global increase in extreme fires of up to 14% by 2030, compared to the number recorded in 2010-2020. The increase could reach 30% by 2050 and 50% by the end of the century.
Black carbon is the leftover junk from burning plants or fossil fuels. Researchers estimate that soot, or black carbon pollution in the most popular and accessible part of Antarctica is causing an extra inch of snowpack shrinkage every year. Soot in Antarctica comes primarily from the exhaust of cruise ships, vehicles, airplanes and electrical generators, although some pollution travels on the wind from all parts of the globe.
A think tank linked to Japanese technology giant Canon is coming under pressure to remove multiple articles from a research director who describes the climate crisis as “fake news” and compares campaigner Greta Thunberg to a communist.
The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report said Monday if human-caused global warming isn’t limited to just another couple tenths of a degree, an Earth now struck regularly by deadly heat, fires, floods and drought in future decades will degrade in 127 ways with some being “potentially irreversible.”
The recent dust storms witnessed by Mumbai in the month of January & February which has worsened the air quality of the city is now being identified as the effects of human-induced activity, global warming & climate change.
Researchers have found that European birds such as garden warblers, are having a quarter fewer chicks, which has huge implications for the species. Chiffchaffs are laying their eggs 12 days earlier. Some birds are decreasing in size, while others, such as redstarts, are getting larger.
Scientists are turning to a combination of data collected from air, land and space to get more complete picture of how climate change is affecting the planet’s frozen regions.
