Pakistan-India will be destroyed by deadly heatwaves in decades to come: MIT Research
MASSACHUSETTS: The growing climate change will largely affect South Asia particularly India, Pakistan and India as according to scientists these countries will be destroyed by deadly heatwaves in decades to come.
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) predict that the whole of South Asia including the northern part of India would be inhabitable.
The scientists have warned that in next few decades, key agricultural areas in the Indus and Ganges river basins will be affected, which will result in reduced crop yields and famine.
“Climate change is not an abstract concept, it is impacting huge numbers of vulnerable people,” MIT professor Elfatih Eltahir told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
