Norvergence – Impact of Climate Change and Environmental Risk Factors on Brain Health

The team Norvergence is currently working on a climate change issue that emphasizes the impact that climate change has shown on the human brain. Recently, the XXIV World Congress of Neurology was held in Dubai and more than 4000 neurologists and specialists from 126 countries attended it. The experts brought into notice their research and theories about the impact that can be seen on the human brain as a result of climate change and the other environmental risks.

The reports show that air pollution is associated with the reported higher incidence of stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological disorders. The expanded research talks about climate change and mental health that includes increasing evidence as to the extreme weather events those are more frequent, intense, and complex as per the changing environment that can trigger the following health issues:

  • Post-Traumatic stress disorder(PTSD)
  • Major depressive disorder (MDD)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Complicated Grief
  • Vicarious Trauma
  • Recovery Fatigue
  • Substance abuse
  • Suicidal Ideation

Small particles from air pollution and occupational exposure can lead to:

  • Inflammation
  • Oxidative stress cellular damage

The condition of oxidative stress cellular damage is a consequence of high levels of oxidant molecules and the degeneration of nerve cells. The experts also pointed towards the brain health of children which is being affected by the toxic pollutants in the air which might result in delayed cognitive development or can show links to autism.

The neurologists say that they need to get a more comprehensive understanding of the role the environment plays on the nervous system and diseases related to the brain. The efforts are in the right direction and the focus is to identify the extreme effects that climate change can have on the human brain. The scientists across the world and the researchers have also taken this point related to brain health into consideration and have started working on gaining a clear insight into this raised issue.

The researchers at Norvergence are coordinating with some neurologists to gain more information about the effects on the human brain and what is the main reason behind it. Reasons like industrial pollutants and car emissions are said to be the leading cause of increasing brain health issues, especially among children. Efforts should be made by each one of us to reduce air pollution and demand strict action from the government whenever required.

 

Norvergence – What is Climate Change for You?

The team Norvergence is an NGO that is continuously putting in efforts towards environment protection and reducing the effects of climate change. The main focus of this NGO is to spread awareness about climate change and global warming. The members of the NGO believe that they need to come up with more sustainable ideas that can be shared with the world so that each one of you can contribute towards protecting the environment.

The other best method which team norvergence follows is interaction with people of all age groups and to know what climate change means to them and what they think can be done to reduce it. In this way, the team collects information related to the level of awareness among the society and sometimes these interactions become the medium to reach out to the areas affected by climate change or climatic issues that are still unknown.

Recently, the Norvergence team conducted interviews with tourists at different places around the world emphasizing on two major questions:

The volunteers were assigned a task to interview different people, especially tourists and record their views about climate change in their own country v/s the country they are currently in. Other questions like what do you do to contribute towards the sustainable word and what steps are taken by the government of your country were considered important information to be gathered.

The reason behind the interview session was to get new ideas about sustainable practices and share a few with the interviewee. The team was glad to know that each person interviewed was aware of climate change issues and were contributing their bit to make the world a sustainable one.

Activities like carrying a bag while traveling to dump the waste, carrying a shopping bag for shopping to avoid the plastic carry bags provided by the shopkeepers, promoting environmentally friendly agriculture methods, water harvesting, and preferring digital receipts from shopkeepers are some baby steps which were shared by the interviewees with the team.

Whereas the norvergence team shared their experience with the interviewees and also shared with them their reasons to join the NGO and why did they plan this interview activity to spread awareness.

The researchers at norvergence have brought in a new topic of interest for the team to feel motivated. After going through all the interviews recorded the researchers were proud to conclude that awareness activities were the most productive activity performed by the team.

Greta Thunberg, the environmental activist was another name that motivated the youth to plan better tomorrow by contributing today in creating a sustainable world.

Overall the interviews resulted in good quality of information and the team gather relevant data to work on the next project related to climate change. The norvergence team across different corners of the world listed down the climatic issues that they believe are important to be considered after the interview session. Some team members came up with ideas that can be implemented in day to day life of an individual so that we all can contribute towards sustainability.

 

Norvergence – The Relation between Saudi Arabia Oil Attacks and Greenhouse Gases

Norvergence believes that it’s important to reveal the relation between greenhouse gases and Saudi Aramco. September 14, 2019, the date has been already written in the dark history of Saudi Arabia. The country that was considered one of the safest in the Middle East has been attacked by a drone resulting in a series of explosions.

The responsibility for the attack was claimed by the Yemeni Houthi Movement whereas the other researchers of Norvergence have conducted research and found that a Qatar-linked website “Middle East Eye” claimed that the attack was carried out by Iraqi Hashd al-Shaabi.

Norvergence

The attacked oil field, Saudi Aramco is the world’s largest corporate emitter of greenhouse gasses and it has already released more than 40 billion metric tons of greenhouse gases.

The article named “Saudi Aramco is the World’s Largest Emitter of Greenhouse Gases” talks more about the issues of greenhouse gases and why Saudi Aramco considered the largest emitter of greenhouse gases.

Norvergence – Countries that Promote Eco-Friendly Activities

Global warming and climatic change have created a need to protect the environment and its resources from depleting. Each country across the world is doing its bit to protect nature and natural resources.

Team Norvergence believes that it’s not just the government and the environmental activists who are responsible for the protection of the depleting mother earth. Each one of us is responsible and has the potential as an individual and as a country to come up with little efforts and ideas to protect the environment.

The Norvergence team is also working on the same environmental issues and has presented a report listing down the 5 eco-friendly countries that spread the message of sustainability.

Norvergence: Top 5 Environmental NGOs

Norvergence: Climate change fueled Syria’s civil war

“Until now the main cause of civil war is a wealth of the nation in few men hands but Syria showed us another reason; Climate Change”

With this blog post, environmentalists at Norvergence have taken their research and study to a whole new level. The purpose of this content is to make people aware of how a climate change-driven drought can exacerbate conflict in a country.

Check the supporting video:

No one knew that drought in Syria could be one of the devastating factors that trigger the 2nd deadliest war of the 21st century. Experts believe that the Syrian civil war is the result of many interrelated factors such as sociopolitical tensions, religious tensions, bad condition of the economy, and other political changes that swept across the Middle-East.

The environmentalist at Norvergence has conducted research related to climate change issues in Syria and the impact on Syria. The team connected the dots as the research showed the impact of climatic change on the Syria war too. The article “Climate Change Fueled Syria’s Civil War” talks more about the connection between the two i.e. the war and climate change.
