Coastal roads, shelters, warning, response… We’re at a stage where we can save most lives: IMD Director General K J Ramesh

Sat, 04 May 2019 22:52:00 +0200expressindia (en)

We have two principal cyclone seasons in India — in April-May over the Bay of Bengal, and October-November and partly December.

The study compared real-world data with climate models, which predicted that human influences could be seen early in the 1900s and would increase. Clear evidence of a human “fingerprint” — a global pattern of regional drying and wetting characteristics of the climate response to greenhouse gases — emerged within the first half of the last century.

Study: Humans can be blamed for droughts, and they’re about to get worse
