It has been three decades since scientists discovered just how much punishment the Earth’s atmosphere had taken. We had previously been oblivious to the fragility of the ozone layer, until a hole the size of the continental United States was identified above Antarctica in 1985. Our innovation of incredible technologies to enhance our lives has come at a price. Progression at the planet’s expense. Identification of the problem was one thing; implementing change has been harder to execute. You see, when billions of people become reliant on a certain way of life, reversing unhealthy habits – in a planetary sense – becomes a colossal endeavour. But for all the naysayers of... Read More

It’s high time for innovation. Innovation to prevent the end of our planet as we know it. Our thirst for fossil fuels is becoming difficult for the Earth to sustain, so we need to become greener in our energy consumption. Jaga-CO2-Temperatures Where there is scope for change, it has to happen. Inefficient design and heating of our buildings is contributing significantly to the CO2; emissions that result in global warming. Global warming, as a term, has been used so heavily without significant action that its resonance has dwindled. We need to reinforce its significance in a sector that has the potential to make a difference. A warmer world might seem like... Read More
The discovery of fire is one of the defining moments in the history of mankind. A catalyst that sparked thousands of years of evolution. Everything the human race has achieved thus far stems back to that moment. And yet, for all the good, it has become a more destructive force than the early Homo erectus could ever have imagined. In the past few centuries, it has been used as a tool for burning the planet’s natural resources to fuel our development at a relentless rate. It’s a mark of our ambition and the success we can achieve as a species, but the planet is a privilege that we have... Read More
