Short Notes on the Effect of Global Warming in India
Just a few latitudes down the map of India, states like Orissa get hit by heat waves the likes of which have never been heard of before. The summers of 1998 and 1999 were specially scorching as mercury soared above 50°C.
The impact was tremendous; people just disappeared from the streets and government offices, were closed in the afternoons. The heat wave claimed many lives. Then came the super cyclone in 1999. Expect more of such stormy weather in future, warn global-warming Cassandras.
