Act Now Or It Is Too Late: IPCC Synthesis Report Gives Final warning on Climate Crisis
The report said exceeding 1.5°C warming limit would lead to irreversible impacts for glaciers, extreme heat stress in tropics, which will impact those who have been least responsible for global warming.
The impact of changing patterns of Western Disturbances and La Niña on warmer winters
According to meteorologists, the anomaly in the temperatures and rainfall is the result of alterations in the weather patterns. The intensity as well as frequency of Western Disturbances have been on the lower side this winter season.

How Climate Change exacerbates rural India's debt burden
Ongoing shifts in rainfall and temperature under climate change are likely to increase the debt burden on rural households, particularly those in dry areas and belonging to marginalised groups, finds the study
Climate Adaptation: We need novel solutions to protect our safety net for the future

South Asian Experts Raise Pitch For Loss and Damage to be Part of COP27 Agenda
Extreme weather events across the globe reflect an urgent need to include loss and damage in the upcoming COP27 agenda, the absence of which will render the conference futile, say experts
India’s solar, wind energy production to dip due to climate change: Study
In the solar potential regional analysis, future projections predict a shift in the frequency of solar radiation in the negative direction, implying that solar energy production will decrease in the immediate future.
What Bengaluru floods 2022 taught us about increasing threat of urban flooding in India
Bengaluru rains were a result of change in Monsoon trends that have of late become unpredictable and complex. However, meteorologists claim that extremely heavy rainfall cannot be blamed alone and that it was the city's bad urban planning that led to such a grave situation.
