What did 2022 tell us about climate change? Are our responses good enough? What does the future hold? D. Raghunandan of the Delhi Science Forum addresses some of these questions
A convergence of factors such as extreme heat waves, melting glaciers, and heavy monsoon rainfall explains the scale of floods in the country. All these factors are connected to climate change
Dangerous heat waves are likely to hit much of the world more frequently – three times more often than today in some regions. Tropical regions, including India, may face extreme heat conditions almost daily by the end of this century.

In this episode, we bring you stories of the plight of jailed activist Mutulu Shakur, protests over reproductive rights in the Dominican Republic, the climate crisis in Europe and the political situation in Libya
The study predicts that the chances of extreme heat waves would increase to every 1.15 years towards the end of this century
