Experts said – this happened for the first time in 120 years

With weather conditions expected to remain unfavourable in the first five months of 2024, everyone was asking where this was headed. Climate scientists believe the temperature this summer is worrying, though not surprising. Professor Vimal Mishra, Vikram Sarabhai Chair, Department of Civil Engineering and Earth Sciences at IIT Gandhinagar, said, “This could be the most severe summer for north India in the last 120 years. In such a large area, which is also densely populated, the temperature has never been this high, over 45-47 degrees Celsius. This is a record in itself.” Raghu Murtugudde, an earth system scientist at IIT Bombay, says, “West Asia is heating up very fast as the desert absorbs heat during global warming. This also turns the winds over the Arabian Sea northwards during summer and monsoon. Concrete structures in Delhi have worsened the situation
