US President Donald Trump blamed India and China for his decision to quit the Paris Climate Accord. Mr Trump’s outbursts over this issue are unfortunate.
Some time ago, a large number of whales were stranded and died on the Tiruchendur beach in Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu, India.
This incident has demonstrated how important marine life is. The various reasons like the climate change have been quoted for this unfortunate incident. So it is important to find out the actual reason behind the event.
For sure, the fact that the natural habitation and environment must be protected at all costs has been proved through this incident. Also, the vagaries of the monsoon are not only a cause for concern, but also a chance to think over some strategies. Natural phenomena like El Nino and La Nina are nothing but the results of the global warming.
The present global economic slowdown, coupled with the climate change, is a big threat to the interests of all nations. The world should come forward to resolve the issue of gas emission that is playing havoc with the aspects of monsoon.
