What is Global Warming?

In simple words, Global Warming is nothing but increase of average surface temperature of our Earth due to increase of level of Greenhouse gasses. Carbon dioxide is one of such Greenhouse gasses which is being increased from its usual level due to deforestation and burning of fossil fuel. Basically these Greenhouse gasses are the main cause of trapping heats within Earth's atmosphere,  otherwise heat should have been realized to outside of Earth's atmosphere.

What is the cause of Global Warming and Climate Change?

Increase of level of Greenhouse gasses in Earth's atmosphere is the main cause of Global Warming and Climate change. Increase of Greenhouse gasses is caused by burning of fossil fuel and deforestation.

The other cause of Global Warming and Climate Change are thinning of Ozone layer in Earth's atmosphere. CFC's (Chlorofluorocarbon) and Methyl bromide are the main contributor of destroying the Ozone layer. Thinner Ozone layer causes more UV rays to reach in Earth's surface from Sun. CFCs are commonly used as refrigerants, solvents, and foam blowing agents.

What is Greenhouse Gas?

Greenhouse gasses are the gas in Earth's atmosphere which absorbs and emits thermal infrared radiation. These Greenhouse gasses (GHG) are the main cause of of Greenhouse effect in Earth's surface.

The main Greenhouse gasses are Water Vapour, Carbon Dioxide, Methane, Nitrous oxide and Ozone.

What is Greenhouse effect?

Greenhouse gasses absorb thermal radiation from Earth atmosphere and re-radiate them in every possible directions. These thermal radiation comes back to Earth surface and there by increases the average atmospheric temperature of Earth surface. In simple word we can think Greenhouse gasses act as a cover on top of Earth atmosphere, allows heat to comes down to Earth surface and block the heat going back to outside of Earth's atmosphere and therefore increases the atmospheric temperature of Earth surface. This whole process is known as Greenhouse effect.

What is effect of thinner Ozone layer?

Atmospheric Ozone layer filters out many bad radiation (mainly UV (Ultra-Violet) rays) from Sun. Thinner Ozone layer causes UV rays to reach on Earth's surface very easily. This may cause Skin cancer, reduction in the production of crops and the destruction of phytoplankton.

Is Global Warming caused by human activities?

Obviously Yes! The increase of level of Carbon dioxide, which is one of the main Greenhouse gasses, is nothing but due to unplanned burning of fossil fuel due to industrialization and modern society. Reduction of forest lands to suffice the need of increased population is another cause of increase of Carbon dioxide.

Again, first 6 miles of Earth's atmosphere is very crucial of Earth's climate and we are heavily responsible to disturb the balance of this crucial part of atmosphere.

Is Sunderban also affected by Global Warming?

World's largest mangrove forest is badly affected by Global Warming and Climate Change. Study revels that 28 cm in crease of sea level due to increase of temperature of Earth surface will be enough to submerge this World's Heritage site. More surprisingly we may see few islands of Sunderban are wiped out within next 100 years. So we have to act very fast to save this forest from the effect of Global Warming and Climate Change.

What MUKTI is doing to preserve Sunderban from the effect of Global Warming?

Since its inception MUKTI is working actively to minimize the effect of Global Warming on Sunderban. MUKTI has initiated various projects in this area for this cause. In past few years we have executed extensive plantation projects in this area. We have chosen such type plantations which can also help in economic growth of the area as well. One of such project is NaRKEL (Natural Revolution with K(C)oconut for Ecology and Livelihood) where thousands of Coconut trees were planted. Coconut trees are selected due to its ability to prevent soil erosion, availability of extensive by-products, low maintenance cost.

?MUKTI also has many projects on renewable energy. Solar lamp project is one of such where solar lamp are supplied among the villagers where electricity is not a choice. Villagers are also being trained to troubleshoot the lamps and associated accessories and there by enhancing local job opportunity.

There can be different type of plants such as Coconut trees, different wood trees, fruit trees. We try to plant those type of trees which are having longer life cycle and having economical benefit as well. Economical benefit part of any tree goes back society either directly through villagers or through us. MUKTI has a standard rate card for each type of plant. These rate includes but not limited to cost of sapling, transportation charge if any, labor charge, maintenance charge (till the sapling gets to a position where no more maintenance required). 

Now based on this rate card and your contribution MUKTI will arrange appropriate plantation and you will be notified with the action taken.
