Greenhouse gases surge to new highs worldwide in 2017: US report 1.8.2018 DNA: India
Planet-warming greenhouse gases surged to new highs as abnormally hot temperatures swept the globe and ice melted at record levels in the Arctic last year due to climate change, a major US report said today. The annual State of the Climate Report, compiled by more than 450 scientists from over 60 countries, describes worsening climate conditions worldwide in 2017, the same year that US President Donald Trump pulled out of the landmark Paris climate deal. The United States is the world's second leading polluter after China, but has rolled back environmental safeguards under Trump, who has declared climate change a "Chinese hoax" and exited the Paris deal signed by more than 190 nations as a path toward curbing harmful emissions. The 300-page report issued by the American Meteorological Society and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration mentioned the word "abnormal" a dozen times, referring to storms, droughts, scorching temperatures and record low ice cover in the Arctic. Last year, the top ...

Earlier this month, a series of thunderstorms and dust storms left a lot of destruction in five north Indian states. A number of factors including unusually high temperatures in Rajasthan, western disturbances, and cyclonic circulation over Haryana, just to name a few were the main factors.
