India is well known for its diversified and magnificent landscape which includes humongous mountains, dense forests, gigantic rivers and yes how can the beautiful Thar and Kutch can be excluded. This blessing has its own pros and cons. Some parts of India such as U.P, Haryana, M.P and many other states enjoy sweet spring with beautiful rains and mildly cold breeze. Whereas some states like Rajasthan, Karnataka and many more either receive too less or too much of it.
India is an agriculture-based country which typically means most of the Indian population depends on agriculture for earning a living and surviving in this world of exclusivity.
Many other countries in the world are also agrarian but most of them has adapted new technologies for farming and are no more only dependent on rain water for harvesting. But 90% of Indian farmers are still struggling to make ends meet as they are still dependent on rainfall for harvesting.
This dependency is proving to be a huge obstacle in front of Indian farmers because rainfall patterns are changing all around the globe. The usual pattern of rainfall determined the seasonal and usual crops which would grow in a determined area. Such as North-West is well-known for its sugarcane, wheat and cucumber farming whereas South India is known for cultivating rice. But change in rainfall pattern is also affecting the cultivation of these crops. North-west India is not getting adequate amount of rainfall for harvesting all those crops whereas South India is facing the problem of excessive rainfall and at the same time increase in water level. These conditions are causing a steap increase in prices of all vegetables and fruits at the same time this economic problem can be directly connected with climate change.
This year India has suffered through horrifying climatic conditions which are caused due to extreme climate change. States like Kerela, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh is suffering through reckoning which is beyond repair due to floods. These floods costed more than just some roads being sunk under water. These floods account for lost human lives, people getting homeless, numerous animals dead, havoc being spread all around, scarcity of drinking water and much more.
According to the scientists this is only the beginning of wreckage which is about to be encountered by human race. All over the world extreme weather conditions are being reported. We already lost a huge chunk of California’s lush green forest through forest-fire, many countries are suffering through drought as even a single bottle of drinking water has become a luxury. On August 1, the Greenland Ice Sheet experienced its biggest single-day of ice loss in recorded history. About 12.5 billion tons of ice melted and poured into the Atlantic Ocean.
All these situations are being created because of global warming which is being caused by negligence of human race towards environment. Specifically, for India the results of global warming can be seen magnifying day by day. These floods have not only created a problem for people living the those areas where floods hit but for the whole world as now even Indians saw how much destruction can be caused by nature if its not taken care of.
