It’s the same story every year and things seem to be just getting worse as the years pass by. Flooding in India, Nepal and Bangladesh have killed more than a 1000 people already in 2017. With rainfall of 300mm on 29th August 2017, Mumbai, India’s financial capital had its wettest August day in 2 decades. With a recovery cost of more than $ 180bn, Hurricane Harvey is expected to surpass Hurricane Katrina as the worst storm on record in United States.
The carbon dioxide levels are at an all time high. The global sea temperatures are breaking records like never before thus creating even stronger storm events. The extent of ice in Antartica is lower than it has ever been. There have been record heatwaves across Europe and US leading to multiple wildfires.
