In a major cause of concern for the people of Delhi, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has sounded an alarm as the national capital recorded the season’s hottest day on Tuesday. The temperature in Delhi soared to 40.1 degrees Celsius, which is five degrees above the normal average temperature for this time of the year.

The IMD has also predicted that the heatwave is likely to continue in the coming days and the temperature could rise further. The department issued a warning to the people of Northwest India, stating that they should take necessary precautions to avoid any heat-related illnesses.

The scorching heat is not just limited to Delhi, but other parts of the country are also experiencing high temperatures. Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh have been witnessing temperatures above 45 degrees Celsius for the past few days. In fact, Churu in Rajasthan recorded a temperature of 47.5 degrees Celsius on Monday, making it the hottest place in the country.

The rising temperature is a cause of concern for the people as it may lead to various health issues such as heat exhaustion, dehydration, heat cramps, heatstroke, and more. It is important to take necessary precautions to avoid any such illnesses.

History has shown us that extreme weather conditions have always been a part of our planet’s natural cycle. However, with the increasing levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, the frequency and intensity of such events have increased.

The burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and industrial activities are some of the major contributors to greenhouse gas emissions. These activities have led to an increase in the Earth’s temperature, which has resulted in climate change.

Climate change has already started to show its effects with rising sea levels, melting glaciers, and extreme weather events such as heatwaves, hurricanes, floods, and droughts. The need for immediate action to mitigate the impact of climate change is more critical than ever.

In conclusion, the rising temperature and the heatwave in Northwest India is a cause of concern. It is important to take necessary precautions to avoid any heat-related illnesses. The need for action to mitigate climate change is critical to prevent such extreme weather events from becoming more frequent and intense.
