The summer season is tremendously hot with unbearable heat waves with Delhi temperature nearing 45 degrees celcius and Churu in Rajasthan crossing 49 degrees celcius creating havoc to environment and human lives.
The increasing global warming due to excessive green house emissions especially in crowded cities and towns like the capital city of India Delhi where vehicles, automobiles, use of air conditioners and other electronic gadgets including multiple construction activities and depleting forest cover has further multiplied the crisis.
The loss of pre monsoon rains has also added to the woes of the countrymen with heat waves taking the human toll and making peoples’ lives hell.
The environment is full of unbeareable heat waves equalizing the furnace heat impact.
While the nation is confronted with unbeareable hot summer with not reprieve in sight, the meteorological department predicts the monsoon hitting the Kerala Coast on June 8th.
The reason of this uncontrollable hot temperature is mainly due to the tremendous shortage in the pre monsoon rainfall during the last 65 years which is a record in itself.
According to the editorial in one of the leading English daily HT, the three month pre monsoon season March April and May ended with a rainfall deficiency of 25%.
This has resulted in several parts of the country confronted with immense drought like situation while many suffering from excessive unbearable heat waves.
A robust pre monsoon could have made the summer beareable, made the reserviors full of capacity ( just 20% water was left in major reserviors of the country numbering 91 on June 2nd) replenished the soil moisture and helped the agrarian sector.
While shortage of pre monsoon rainfall has badly affected the agrarian sector of the country it has also negatively impacted the Himalayan states where forest fires have created havoc badly impacting and destroying the flora and fauna.
While in the entire country there have been major 192 incidents of forest fires resulting in deaths of animals living in jungles and to human lives as well this year, in the Himalayan state of Uttarakhand there had been hundreds of forest fire incidents leading to collosal loss of hundreds of crores of Rupees and its flora and fauna.
Just yesterday a leopard was found floating in dead condition, in one of the Garhwal rivers after having been killed in a massive forest fire. More than 20 peoole have been killed in Uttarakjand while dowsing fire in the jungles.
During summers, especially in May June the hot winds and dry leaves and pine needles become excessively prone to forest fires when temperature soar beyond limit.
Not only this but the jungle mafias, hand in glove with some corrupt forest officials deliberately create forest fires to encourage illegal sale of timber under the guise of heavy trees considered as half burnt and as waste material.
This shabby business is going on for years. In addition to this arbitrary practice various NGOs or forest department people who fudge the government money in lakhs n crores create pre strategic forest fires to falsely show their plantations as damaged due to these fires whereas in reality not a single plant or tree is planted in actuality.
Thus a massive government allocation in the name of forest tree plantation is siphoned off under the garb of forest fires in league with officials of the concerned department.
Conclusively it can be said that the excessively rising global temperature due to the green house gases’ emissions, depleting forests and global warning affecting the monsoon ultimately affects the agrarian sector, the food security, the future of children and countrymen and the progress of the nation by bringing down its GDP.
It’s therefore the collective responsibility of all global nations, its people and the governments to plant more and more trees, increase depleting forest cover, lessen green house gas emissions, save and conserve rain water, give up using vehicles cars with diesal, use solar energy than other form of fuels, lessen the use of air conditioners and use car pool system in your locality alternatively than using single cars with a single occupant.
If adhered to these principles the society can to a great extent minimise the negative impact and implications of global warming. What’s your take friends?
