India’s temperature will rise by two degrees by the end of this century. Dr. Madhavan Nair Rajeevan, Secretary, Earth Sciences, has made this claim based on a model based on mathematical calculations. Dr. Rajeevan was addressing the Summer Research Training Program of CSIR.
Speaking on science and climate change, Dr. Rajeevan said, India is ready to overcome these challenges. Our meaning is drawn up with systems modeling and climate change. According to our calculations, constant climate change will increase the air temperature and humidity levels on the surface and increase the duration of the summer season.
As a result, excessive rains, strong winds, intense tropical cyclones will be seen to increase convection. Not only this, there will also be a change in the monsoon. This can increase sea level and coastal erosion along with more floods and drought.
According to Dr. Rajeevan, climate change is also affecting India’s rain pattern. The whole world is grappling with the problem of the warming climate. Temperature in the Arctic region is increasing due to the continuous carbon emissions. The Arctic sea is constantly melting. It has seen a significant boom since the 90s.
