India is also being affected by the serious threat of global warming. The country’s major coastal cities, including Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, are at risk of being submerged amid warnings that the average temperature will rise to 1.5 °C (2.7 Fahrenheit) in the coming few years. Such a thing has come to the fore in a United Nations report.
The temperature of the earth is increasing from year to year. India is also being affected by the serious threat of global warming. The country’s major coastal cities, including Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, are at risk of being submerged amid warnings that the average temperature will rise to 1.5 °C (2.7 Fahrenheit) in the coming few years. Such a thing has come to the fore in a United Nations report.
According to this IUN study, a week before the United Nations Climate Conference to be held in Glasgow, 25 states and union territories of India are among the flood and drought affected areas due to climate change. These mainly include Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Assam. According to rain and drought statistics, 80 percent of Indians live in disaster prone districts.
Recently a few months ago the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report warned of global warming. According to a report by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), the temperature of the Ganges water is rising. The CPCB’s Biological Health of River Ganga report mentions an increase in the average temperature by about 1 degree in the rate of melting of glaciers.
Color changing snow, fast melting glacier, alarm bells!
According to a report, about 150 million people are living in coastal cities of the world, whose homes will be washed away due to high tide. India is also not untouched by all these incidents. In India alone, 35 million people are in danger. Mumbai, the financial capital of India, may be more or less wiped out. Most parts of the city will be flooded year after year and parts of the region are at risk of being flooded by 2100.
On the basis of the IPCC report, now the US Space Agency (NASA) has expressed the danger of drowning 12 coastal cities of India by the end of the century. According to NASA, by the end of this century, these cities can be filled with up to 3 feet of sea water. This situation will be created due to the melting of glaciers due to the increasing heat. These include cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Kochi, Paradip, Bhavnagar, Mangaluru, Visakhapatnam.
Climate change due to global warming and due to this glacier melting, as well as the phenomenon of sea level rise is coming to the fore. According to a study, rising sea levels are three times more dangerous than we think. By 2050, 300 million people around the world will be living in places that will be submerged by annual floods.
