Global Warming has been a serious matter of concern for the whole world in the last few decades but the actions over it are quite negligible. As per the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has warned the earth about the faster occurrence of Global Warming than anticipated. As well as, it can cause a devastating effect over the earth if steps are not taken to cut down the emission. In addition to that, the panel also mentioned that India with South-Asian Countries will be the worst-hit countries.
Especially India, China, and Pakistan are the countries which have to face the wrath of calamities like, floods, heatwaves, and reduced GDP. As we all know human activity is the sole reason for the increase in the level of Global Warming, which already affected the temperature of the earth. The temperature of the earth has been increased by 1 degree C and is expected to reach 1.5 degrees C between 2030 and 2052 if the activities continue.
Being a developing country, India always used to excuse itself that they can’t reduce the number of Industries as it will alter the growth of the country. But it is only we and the whole country, which is responsible for these disturbances in the environment and weather. So, unanimously we all need to work over it and give a new life to earth.
Due to Global Warming, India already has been through various natural calamities due to environmental disturbances in the last 5-10 years. Therefore, it is high time to realize the importance of human life and other living beings as well. The disastrous effect India witnessed due to environmental imbalances are Cyclones, Tsunami, and Floods in Southern part of India, Kedarnath Flood tragedy, and many more. During the Kedarnath flood, many people and the experienced people understood that it is the effect of Global Warming.
The change in weather causes drought and intensified heat waves mostly in Northern regions of India. These changes have affected the agriculture sector of the country and cause monetary loss to thousands of farmers as well as many lost their lives due to debt.
As Agriculture is the backbone of Indian Economy and maximally it depends on the monsoon season. The rising temperature of the earth is not only causing climate changes but also supporting the irregular rainfall patterns. As well as, it also affects the fertility of the soil and nutritional balance of the soil during the crop season.
India is shifting its focus towards renewable source of energy instead of following the traditional method i.e. Coal, to generate the electricity for domestic use. But, the step of opting Solar Energy is not enough to fight against Global Warming. It is very evident that still there is a huge percentage of the Indian population deprived of electricity. So, reaching electricity to the maximum in the form of solar or traditional means doesn’t help India to contribute to the activity of lowering the Global Warming level.
If the rate of Global Warming continues then the sea level will increase as the frozen glacier will melt with rapid speed. It causes loss of freshwater and increases in the level of river which causes a flood in various states of India, and ultimately it led to increase in the water level of the sea, which causes the flood in states which are having seashore. The increase in temperature of water causes loss of aquatic life, planktons, and other living beings.
So, it is high time to realize the importance of weather and its drastic consequences. The whole world needs to work unanimously to minimize the effects of Global Warming and make the lives on earth worth living.
