Road Signs

The ongoing road construction activities along Outering Road has started to attract people especially regular users of the road both motorists and pedestrians alike.
On different occasion I have witnessed passengers in public vehicle taking a few snap shots with their mobile phones.
  Mega structures are coming up which has attracted attention of road users. Pedestrians and curios residents are seen on site enjoying to see how construction is taking place oblivious of the dangers they are exposed to. On the other hand there are no road signs to warn the curious onlookers and sign available are not visible as a warning signs.

Recently the United States and China agreed to a carbon emissions reduction deal to combat global warming. Under the terms of the deal, the US agrees to reduce emissions by 26% to 28% from 2005 levels by 2025, while China agrees to reach peak emissions by 2030, and to generate 20% of its energy with zero-emissions technology by that year. Diplomacy is notoriously difficult, and consequently any deal on climate change heartens those who watch international politics. But are these emissions reductions sufficient to avert the worst of what global warming potentially has to offer? I’m not seeing much coverage of the deal from a climate science perspective, so I decided to look into it.
