India’s Director of the Institute of Tropical Meteorology, B. N. Goswami, stated that global warming-induced melting of Greenland and Arctic ice could affect harvests in India. The director explained that the melting weakens the ‘thermohaline’ (heat) circulation of the Atlantic Ocean, reducing atmospheric temperatures and resulting in weakened monsoons. Mr. Goswami urged Indian lawmakers to support global initiatives for reducing carbon and methane emissions to halt global warming.
Our gratitude, Director Goswami, for your voice of clarity and concern. May we all take heed and act now to stabilize conditions to restore bountiful harvests for all.
