Nitrogen pollution restricts the safe margin for other environmental issues

Nitrogen pollution restricts the safe margin for other environmental issues

Humanity's failure to prevent nitrogen contamination could restrict the secure operating margin for a number of different problems facing our world earth, state scientists. This latest finding was reported by Professor Johan Rockstrom, former manager of the Stockholm resilience center in the Stockholm University, Sweden. "Human actions have pushed climate change, biodiversity loss, changes in nutrient cycles (phosphorus and nitrogen ) and land usage beyond the tolerance limits of earth earth. The problem is that they also restrict the secure margin available for additional ecological problems facing the ground, such as new water usage, ocean acidification, property usage and stratospheric ozone depletion", '' he explained.


He was delivering a keynote speech at the 8th triennial Convention of the International Nitrogen Initiative (INI) attended by 950 registered participants from all continents.  "INI conventions consistently brought together the most recent science to predict for governmental actions and evidence-based policies. After the UN resolution on Sustainable Nitrogen Management, our job is to scientifically support its mitigation efforts", stated Nandula Raghuram, Chair of the INI. As a Professor of biotechnology from Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, New Delhi, his keynote lecture dealt with progress of crop nitrogen utilization efficiency for a solution.  "Fertilizers are a predominant source of nitrous acid and ammonia contamination. We narrowed down the minimal number of physical traits and chemical targets for nitrogen use efficiency in rice for the very first time", he explained.


Speaking on nitrogen at Europe in the inaugural session, EU Commissioner for the Environment, Ocean and Fisheries, Virginijus Sinkevičius stated that the European Commission includes a policy framework in place that occupies limitations to nitrogen contamination of water and air. The German environment minister Svenja Schulze emphasized the nation's nitrogen pollution reduction goals and enabling policies, aside from the ministry's marketing of vegetarianism. "Germany is the only nation with this kind of federal objectives; its own coverages are well worth emulating", stated David Kanter, Vice-Chair of INI and Assistant Professor of surroundings at New York University. Speaking on behalf of the UN Environment Programme, Laeticia Cavalho stated"India championed the UN nitrogen resolution as well as Sri Lanka championed the Columbo announcement, which called for a worldwide vision to halve the nitrogen waste. These are improvements of enormous value in fulfilling the nitrogen barrier".


Representing the opinion of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation, Maria Helena Semedo said "Reactive nitrogen inputs are vitally vital for crop production and global food safety, however there are enormous imbalances in their use and access. The 41st session of FAO endorsed a code of conduct for sustainable utilization of fertilizers".  Ana Engleryd symbolizing the lengthy range trans border air pollution under the UN Economic Commission for Europe stated "Great science is crucial for good policy making and INI's nitrogen tests happen to be enjoying that very significant role". Emphasizing the use of policy and scientific innovations for transformative approaches to satisfy with the nitrogen challenge, '' she explained "stone age didn't end because we lacked stones".
