We Have Got Our Chunk Of Climate Change, Have You?

So it's not just the talk, after all. After all these days of fancying the dreadful climate change, we have, or atleast I have, realised that climate and weather have certainly changed, thanks to our computers, those intoxicating fumes emanating from those industries hoping to make it big, and our attitudes, of course. Let me tell you about Mumbai. The temperature during Christmas was around 28-32C. The normal temperature? 23-26 degrees. The temperature in January was below 15 degrees! And for a coastal place like Mumbai, which has high humidity, this is the most unusual. The lowest temperature recorded was 10.2 degrees! Even now, as I'm writing this post, I feeling chills down my spine.

So that was about Mumbai. It's hard to imagine what north India might be undergoing, with the temperature in the capital, New Delhi, falling to 0 degrees. I doubt whether the temperature may rise further in the coming weeks. Although most of northern India is near the Tropic of Cancer, the temperatures haven't yet soared. Hundreds of people have died owing to severe cold and even snow. Mostly, this time around(February), spring sets in. But I can still feel the cold biting into my body. The only good thing winter has brought in is, lots of alphonso mangoes. It seems the number of mangoes grown has increased considerably owing to this cold climate.

The climate change has brought about mixed feelings. Yet, there is no such commotion over the same. Actually, I had expected some uproar from the political opposition parties as well as the media. Although, no one has realised the volatilty of this issue, maybe it's time we buckle up and change our lifestyle to keep the nature calm.......

Did you experience any such weather change? Please share your thoughts......

So did you like this article? Then why don't you show it some love?

hullo, I reside in Delhi,the temperatures here too have come down a great deal, but when I read about Mumbai,I felt somewhat uncomfortable because the temperatures in such a humid,coastal place can never go below 20 C!

Fortunately, the temperature has gone up considerably. Although weather officials blame this on cold winds sweeping the north, I believe these conditions are just a trailor of what may happen next......

I live in Virginia (USA) and for the past three years, we haven't had hardly any snow at all and extremely hot summers as well. Makes me wonder what's going on.

Well unfortunately they are well aware and are too greedy to care. It takes 440 gallons of water to produce a pound of beef. Not to mention all of the animal waste that goes directly to our waters. It has been proven that we can thrive off of just fruits and vegetables and nuts and beans etc. It has also been proven that animal based proteins cause cancer. ( Read the China study)
