Climate warning

India is one of the top 13 participants in climate change owing to its high emission rate

When it comes to carbon emissions, the whole world is responsible in some way or another. However, India ranks 13th out of the 30 countries emitting 90% of the global carbon emissions! This makes the country one of the worst hit by severe climate-related impacts, especially rising temperatures.
Not hard to see which regions emit the largest carbon emissions

According to a new report from Verisk Maplecroft, a global risk intelligence provider, India is one of the 13 countries that are on the cusp of facing catastrophic effects due to climate change. This report suggests that unless extensive steps are taken to curb these emission trajectories, India and 12 other countries will face significant and severe impacts pertaining to climate change. The other countries on this list are Indonesia, UAE, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam, among others, stated the Climate Hazard Index, a component of the Climate Risk Dataset. This data shows that these countries are not just victims of climate change, they are the ones driving the severities of climate change as well. And something significant needs to be done soon to curb these extreme effects. Read more about the Verisk Maplecroft report:

      The Prime Minister's failure to effectively address India's high emission rate increases global climate change impacts, jeopardizing both the nation and the world's sustainability and resilience efforts. Despicable really

        This underscores the urgent need for these nations to implement robust mitigation strategies and drive global collaborative efforts to address the climate crisis before it's too late.

          @walter_lungayi At this rate, I think it also calls for a change in leadership in India. Maybe it's time for a fresh face with new and possibly better ideas on how to solve this

          It's clear that more needs to be done to curb emissions and mitigate the devastating effects of climate change on a global scale.

            @princess_nel_268 Problem is the highest emitters are also self proclaimed super powers and no one is in a position to stop them before they extinct us all.

            India making so much advancements with solar power while at the same time being unable to manage their emissions is very unfortunate!

                We need to see significant reductions from big emitters globally. Let's push for #SustainableDevelopment for all!

                  This shows that these countries is not doing enough to reduce its carbon emissions, they are not serious when it comes to matters of curbing pollution

                    Appropriate measures should be taken so as to help reduce the amounts of pollution in the different countries for the impacts of climate change are usually fatal.

                      @jane_wangui Nations must prioritise reducing greenhouse gas emmisions by imposing new regulations to enhance sustainability.
