Changing Climate of India
India has a long history it's way more longer than any other civilizations, Back in time we were more blessed with natural resources, never mentioned any water or food crisis, but now the time has changed.
Climate change is a global issue which is not only alarming for India but for the entire world. But we are having the most air polluted cities and most populated country. This should not be ignored. Otherwise consequences will be terrifying.
Causes of Climate Change
Bad Forest Policies
Indian Government is implementing new forest policies that are focused and more tilted towards privatization and industrialization, it's true that we need growth, but it doesn't mean we want the growth at the cost of our health.
Exploitation of forests
India has no more breathing air
India is one of those countries who have worst air quality, coronavirus has given some relief to the environment, but this is temporary and after some time we will be back on the same track.
India has the top most polluted cities in the world
There are many diseases caused by air pollution like lung cancer, cardiovascular problems and it affects pregnant women and newborns,shortened life span and many other diseases.We have to stop it otherwise our future will be bleak.
Climate Change in Himalayas
The great Himalayas always been a protector for India, not just being a protector from our Enemies but India is very much dependent on the Himalayas. Maybe you would think that it's too far from us, but you must think of it, the food comes to our table is also dependent on Himalayas in a direct or indirect way.
Why should we bother about climate change in Himalayas
We should bother about it because more than 3 billion people mostly from HKH countries like India, China, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Myanmar and Afghanistan these Hindu Kush Himalaya countries are dependent on Himalayas for their food and water.
Himalayas are also called third pole on the earth because after North and South Pole the amount of ice in Himalayas is so vast and its melting and it's clearly visible, nowadays flooding is so much increasing in India so we have to do Something.
Issues of Climate Change
and the list goes on and on
IPCC stands for intergovernmental panel on Climate Change, it's a body under the auspices of United Nations.In 2018 they had published a report on on limiting Global temperature.
This report says if the average Global temperature rises 1.5 degree Celsius to 2 degree Celsius the island countries will be submerged underwater and countries like India those who have a long coastline will lose a huge area of its coastals.
So much area of the Sundarbans Delta has been submerged under water. This is not an event that we are not able to see this is happening in front of our Eyes
How far can we go taking our selfishness, It's time to fulfill our responsibilities at our personal and social level
