Climate change worries India

NEW DELHI, India (Reuters) — India’s high vulnerability and exposure to climate change will slow its economic growth, affect health and development, make poverty reduction more difficult and erode food security, says a new report.


The latest report from the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stresses the risks of global warming urges governments to adopt policies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


The report predicts a rise in global temperatures of .3 to 4.8 C and a rise of up to 82 centimetres in sea levels by the late 21st century because of melting ice and expansion of water as it warms, which will threaten coastal cities from Shanghai to San Francisco.


Experts say India is likely to be hit hard by global warming and many of its 1.2 billion people live in areas vulnerable to hazards such as floods, cyclones and droughts.

    The only issue to debate why science never agrees they are 100% certain instead of them saying they are 95% certain, and for 32 years. Why would they do that?
