It is critical in the sense that these banks convened a meeting in London to discuss the impact their activities on project finance were having on environmental and social related issues. There was a growing concern that the project finance industry was not appropriately involved in making the world a better place to live. This claim, which came from civil groups, tarnished the reputation of the Equator banks, who now responded by convening a resolution meeting to the pressure. The pressure was intensified by the launch of Collevecchio Declaration on Financial Institutions and Sustainability in 2003.…

    and Polar Cell. Between these three cells is a dynamic area called the Intertropical Convergence Zone. Persson (2006) tells us that the Hadley Cell is caused by solar energy heating the equator, this causes warm moist air to rise towards the Tropopause dumping rain in terrestrial biomes such as the Tropical Rainforest. After the air has risen and lost most of its moisture it travels along the troposphere whilst being…

    The wind carries heat from the Equator to the Poles, and from day to the night side and this is where the rotation comes in to help it along. When the atmosphere is thick then the winds are efficient in circulation. This is not the case when it comes to the moon because there is no air and there can 't be any effect on it either. The temperatures on them moon range from very low on the night side and very high on the day side, so there is no moderate level. Greenhouse gases also hold the heat of…

    earth has substance (however insignificant in relation to the heavens), therefore earth cannot be a point in the geometric sense. 4. Ecliptic The ecliptic is the path the sun appears to take through the heavens as a result of earth’s orbit. As we spin on our path around the sun, the position the sun occupies against the backdrop of the celestial sphere rotates. In addition to the ecliptic’s celestial implications, as earth’s tilt shifts from summer to winter, the plane of the…

    Ozone is produced by the breaking apart of an oxygen molecule by solar UV radiation, a photochemical reaction, to form two oxygen atoms. Three of these oxygen atoms then combine to form ozone, O3. As this reaction is reliant on solar UV radiation, it is greatest in areas with larger amounts of radiation, the tropics. However, the ozone layers are found to be thicker at higher latitudes rather than at the tropics. Meridional and downward transport of ozone molecules in the stratosphere carries…

    These winds converge within the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) near the equator at the doldrums (The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica, 2012) or as described by William Ferrel (1890) “a belt of calms extending around the globe, where not interfered with by abnormal disturbances or forces”. Whereby, warm air rises, a low pressure system forms, clouds and heavy rain are frequent, and wind is often mild (Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, 2013). The air becomes cooler as…
