Heavy rains and deadly flooding in south India, a region that saw a killer heat wave this summer, are weather patterns that appear to fit the scenarios of climate change in India, IMD chief Laxman Singh Rathore has said. “They (emerging weather patterns) fit the larger picture of climate change predicted by Indian scientists as well as global reports,” Rathore told HT...although “individual episodes” could not be straightaway linked to larger climate changes without the evidence. Torrential rains — the heaviest in a decade — pounded southern states Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh over the week and are continuing.
