New Delhi/Bangkok: Thailand, which attracts tourists from all over the world, may have to change its capital to Bangkok. In fact, the risk of drowning in the sea has increased due to climate change in the current capital of Thailand, Bangkok. According to Thailand's Climate Change Office, Thailand may have to consider moving its capital to Bangkok due to rising sea levels. Many previous estimates have said that Bangkok's coastal areas are at risk of submerging into the sea by the end of this century. Anyway, during the rainy season this dazzling city has to face heavy floods. According to an official of the Climate Change Office, the temperature of our earth is already above 1.5 degrees Celsius. In such a situation, we will have to reduce it soon.

In view of the possibility of Bangkok sinking, there is talk of building a new capital in Thailand.

Big cities will face the sea by 2050

In the report of a project named Climate Central, it was said that due to climate change, these cities of the world may drown by 2050. These are America's Savannah and New Orleans, Guinea's capital Georgetown, Thailand's capital Bangkok, India's Kolkata and Mumbai, Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh city, Italy's Venice city, Iraq's Basra, Netherlands' Amsterdam.

Coastal cities like Mumbai are also becoming victims of global warming.

Why is the climate changing?

According to Sana Rehman, a large amount of carbon is present in different forms inside the ground. This carbon has been present in the Earth for millions of years. Due to this carbon being present for so many years, the Earth took it to its heart and became attached to it. This carbon was present in the form of petroleum, gas or coal.

Water level rises due to carbon being extracted from within the earth

Due to modernization and industrialization of cities, we started extracting carbon from the earth. We converted that carbon into gas for use. The nature of gas is that it absorbs heat in the form of carbon dioxide. When we extract carbon from the earth, it also takes heat with it in the form of gas. As soon as it came out of the earth, heat started spreading in the atmosphere. Due to this, the glaciers or ice of the poles started melting.

Water is the earth's defense mechanism

As long as there was carbon in the Earth, glaciers and the poles remained cold. He remained frozen. But when carbon came out it increased the heat. Glaciers and polar ice started melting. The Earth started increasing water for its own protection so that the temperature could be controlled. Due to this rising water, the risk of coastal cities drowning increased. India's Majuli island also sank due to the same reason.

The amount of carbon on Earth has increased today

According to Sana Rehman, the Earth had never seen so much carbon in its atmosphere before. Today there is 430 ppm (parts per million) carbon present on Earth. Whereas the level of carbon dioxide should have been 0.03. Never in the Earth's 4.5 billion year history has there been so much carbon as we have produced. Due to this the risk of flood is increasing.

Natural disasters due to global warming

Due to global warming, severe floods, droughts, cyclones, extreme heat or earthquakes may occur more frequently. Global warming is happening due to the play of temperature and pressure. We converted the carbon present in liquid form inside the earth into gas, due to which the glaciers are melting. If cities sink, there will be massive migration and their challenges will also come to the fore.

Food crisis due to low or high temperature

Dr. Sana says that our crop cycle and food security are also in danger due to low temperatures. For example, in recent times there has been an increase in the attack on crops by locusts, which eat the entire crop. In fact, due to the delay in the arrival of summer and winter, the breeding season of locusts has started coinciding with the harvest time of crops. In such a situation, their attack starts at the time of ready harvest.

Mumbai is sinking into the sea at the rate of 2 mm

In the city of Venice, Italy, if the water level increases by even 2 mm every year, it can drown quickly. America's coastal cities like Miami and New York are also facing the same danger. Researchers at IIT Mumbai had published a report last year. According to this, the country's economic capital Mumbai is sinking into the sea at the rate of every two millimeters, the main reason for which is climate change.

40 percent of Jakarta drowned in the sea

In this list, the name of Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia and the largest city of the country, is at number one. The condition of Jakarta is such that it is sinking into the sea by 30.5 centimeters every year. Many reports say that up to 40 percent of the city has been submerged in the sea. It is being told that this city may be submerged in water by 2050.


Eclipse of global warming on beautiful Maldives too!

Maldives is a group of about 1200 islands. People live on only 200 of these islands. There is a danger of them drowning if the sea level rises even a little. According to World Bank estimates, sea level may rise by 10 to 100 centimeters by the end of the 21st century. Because of this Maldives will completely drown.
