Many think that elite athletes like me are taken care of. But that is not true, only a few like Sindhu are looked after well.
In fact, I am a bit apprehensive about biopics on sporting personalities in our country after seeing a few films. But my biopic is not going to be the same; it's completely different.
If I lose a match, I don't get sad or feel down. But if I lose a close match, I surely have sleepless nights.
I stopped playing mixed doubles and there is no result in mixed doubles. I was world number six. People who are talking about me and my performance and questioning my career and my achievements, where is the next mixed doubles pair, please show it to me. I would like to know.
Being a player, I am supposed to train and practice and only think about my game, what I have to develop and what weaknesses I have to take care of.
I don't expect people to understand, but as players who love the sport and have constantly been thrown a rock at by our association and now the Govt, there is only so much one can take.
Consistency is most important in international level and once you have it, you become a different player.
Unlike badminton playing major nations of the world, we never had a specialist doubles coach and so the discipline remained neglected.
I don't court controversies, but when I state facts, which are hard to digest for male-dominated authorities, they call them squabble.
I have fought back. From not being allowed to play, I have now qualified for Olympics in two events, it is satisfying. I feel proud.

Knowing how much carbon dioxide the ocean is storing is crucial to modeling future climate changes, and given the prevalence of these creatures around the world and how much water they can filter, it is likely a significant amount.

When you buy carbon offsets, you pay to take planet-warming carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere in exchange for the greenhouse gases you put in. For example, you can put money toward replanting trees, which absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

When whales die, their bodies sink to the bottom of the ocean and over time become part of the marine sediment layer, where they can sequester the carbon dioxide they have accumulated during their life span, an average of 33 tons for a great whale species, keeping it out of the atmosphere for hundreds or thousands of years.

Natural gas emits only half the carbon dioxide of coal when burned, but if methane leaks when oil companies extract it from the ground in a sloppy manner – methane is far more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide – it can wipe out all the advantages of natural gas over coal.

Centuries-old habitats such as coral gardens are destroyed in an instant by bottom trawls, pulverized by weighted nets into barren plains. And global carbon dioxide emissions from human activity affect the ocean, changing the pH balance of the waters in a phenomenon known as ocean acidification.

Sylvia Earle

The Arctic is a place that historically, during all preceding human history, has largely been an icy realm with an impact on ocean currents. That, in turn, influences the temperature of the planet. The Arctic is now vulnerable because of the excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, with a rate of melting that is stunning.

Sylvia Earle

Sylvia Earle

Ocean acidification – the excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere that is turning the oceans increasingly acid – is a slow but accelerating impact with consequences that will greatly overshadow all the oil spills put together. The warming trend that is CO2-related will overshadow all the oil spills that have ever occurred put together.

Sylvia Earle

Photosynthetic organisms in the sea yield most of the oxygen in the atmosphere, take up and store vast amounts of carbon dioxide, shape planetary chemistry, and hold the planet steady.

Seth Shostak

Plate tectonics is not all havoc and destruction. The slow movement of continents and ocean floors recycles carbon dioxide dissolved in the oceans back into the atmosphere. Without this slow speed carbon cycle, Earth’s temperatures would cool dozens of degrees below your comfort zone.

Sam Brownback

I support strongly the expansion of nuclear power because that is one of the key ways of getting electricity generated and reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

Sam Kean

Despite what you might guess, when monitoring your breathing, your body doesn’t care whether you’re inhaling enough oxygen. It cares only whether you’re expelling enough carbon dioxide – that’s the gas that sets off the panic button when you’re suffocating.

Robert Winston

Carbon dioxide is unusual because it doesn’t go through the usual three phases of matter, from solid to liquid to gas, but it goes straight from solid to gas. The volume of the gas is much greater than the volume of the solid. When a solid turns into a gas, we say it sublimes. The process is sublimation.

We have to slow down the emissions of carbon dioxide and methane from coal burning, oil and eventually natural gas… And the best ways to do that are energy efficiency and a switch to renewables.

Prince Charles

Prince Charles

We need to be realistic. There is very little we can do now to stop the ice from disappearing from the North Pole in the summer. And we probably cannot prevent the melting of the permafrost and the resulting release of methane. In addition, I fear that we may be too late to help the oceans maintain their ability to absorb carbon dioxide.

If India moves towards 100 percent LED lighting, we will reduce almost 79 million tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. This will also reduce the electricity bills of people.

Piers Corbyn

Piers Corbyn

The general trend in the last 4,000 years is that carbon dioxide and temperature have been moving against each other.

Piers Corbyn

Piers Corbyn

It’s not the case that carbon dioxide drives temperatures. When you leave Ice Ages, it’s the other way around: The temperatures go up first, and then carbon dioxide levels go up.

Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

Philippe Cousteau, Jr.

Ocean acidification is caused by the ocean absorbing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, the same carbon dioxide that is the primary cause of global warming, hence the nickname ‘the other carbon problem.’ As they do so, the oceans become more acidic with terrible consequences.

Percy Julian

Percy Julian

I remember, as a boy of 17 years of age, this was a fascinating thing for me: how we human beings breathe out carbon dioxide into the air, the leaves of plants pick this carbon dioxide up, and the plant gives off oxygen, which we can breathe in and keep our life going.

Nicholas Stern

Nicholas Stern

We can look back through ice-core data and see over 800,000 years, relationships between carbon dioxide and the temperature of the world. So those people who deny the importance of climate change are just wasting their time. They’re also being diversionary because if we don’t act the risks are enormous.

Mike Quigley

Mike Quigley

Climate change is not just about carbon dioxide levels and melting polar ice caps. It is about our public health and protecting our Earth for future generations.
