Sorry—organic farming is actually worse for climate change

Organic farming can cut direct greenhouse-gas emissions, but it would also reduce yields. To compensate for that would require more land to produce the same amount of food. If half of that land was converted from grasslands, which store carbon in plant tissues, roots, and soil, it would boost overall greenhouse-gas emissions by 21%.

Smoke and mirrors: inside the government’s U-turn on thermal power-plant emissions

Four years after stricter norms for nitrogen-oxide emissions were notified, the government has gone back on its stand to set the limit below 300mg/Nm3 for thermal plants commissioned after 2003. It now wants the norm to be watered down to 450mg/Nm3. Till a year ago, the Central Pollution Control Board had maintained the target was achievable. Why did a bunch of ministries and government bodies agree on lowering the bar?
