Coal India Ranks 3rd in Global CO2 Emissions

Coal India, one of the world's largest coal producers, has secured the third position in the list of top global emitters of carbon dioxide (CO2). This ranking underscores the significant contribution of coal combustion to global greenhouse gas emissions and highlights the urgent need for transition to cleaner energy sources.

The report revealing Coal India's position in global CO2 emissions emphasises the environmental impact associated with coal-based energy generation. While coal has been a dominant source of energy for decades, its combustion releases substantial amounts of CO2, contributing to climate change and environmental degradation.

As the third-largest emitter of CO2 globally, Coal India faces increasing pressure to mitigate its carbon footprint and embrace cleaner energy alternatives. Transitioning towards renewable energy sources and implementing carbon capture and storage technologies are crucial steps in reducing emissions from coal-based activities.

The revelation about Coal India's ranking in CO2 emissions serves as a wake-up call for the coal industry and policymakers worldwide. It underscores the imperative for accelerating efforts to decarbonize the energy sector and transition towards sustainable and low-carbon energy solutions.

India, being one of the largest consumers of coal, faces significant challenges in balancing its energy needs with environmental sustainability. Addressing the environmental impact of coal-based energy generation requires coordinated action from governments, industries, and civil society to drive the transition towards cleaner and more sustainable energy pathways.

Overall, Coal India's position as the third-largest global CO2 emitter highlights the urgency of transitioning away from fossil fuels and towards cleaner and more sustainable energy sources to mitigate climate change and protect the planet's future.

The Delhi-Dehradun Motorway will reduce commute time by half

The Delhi-Dehradun expressway's fourth segment, which would improve connectivity, is expected to open by May 2025. Saharanpur will be used in this project to connect two roads. Instead of five hours, a two-hour journey time is what is expected. This motorway will save fuel, lessen traffic, enhance connectivity between the two cities, and save time. It is projected that the project will cost Rs. 130 billion. On the motorway, light cars are permitted to go up to 100 kmph. After NH44, the longest highway spanning from north to south, this will be the second motorway, including a wildlife protec..
