Climate Change Repercussions: What! These 12 Indian cities likely to be underwater in less than 9 years!

By: Kritika Bobal

It’s 2021 and it’s high time you roll up your sleeves and take care of the climate. Climate change is real and if you still don’t take it seriously, the don’t know what will happen. Temperatures are increasing, glaciers are melting, and many cities may soon be underwater. From cyclones to wildfires to floods, India has witnessed the worst consequences of climate change this year as compared to the previous two years.

Even in the most likely cause, in which global greenhouse gas emissions begin to decrease immediately and are reduced to net-zero by 2050, the global temperature would still peek over the 1.5-degree threshold before decreasing. Cycles of floods triggered by high bursts of rainfall and an increase in droughts driven by rising evaporation are likely what India’s climate future may look like as the world approaches the 1.5 degree Celsius limit for global warming by 2040, according to a UN report.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued a warning for 12 Indian coastal cities that are expected to be three feet underwater by the turn of the era.

According to a recent study by Climate Central, a non-profit research organization, around 50 major coastal cities would need to immediately begin “extreme” adaptation steps to avoid being engulfed by rising waters. Even the closest portrayal of 2030 offers a worrisome scenario for several Indian towns, particularly in the states of Maharashtra, Gujarat, Kerala, and West Bengal, on its new Coastal Risk Screening Tool, where forecasts reveal which cities are at risk of being below sea levels up to 2150,

Which 12 Indian coastal cities are at risk?

The list includes major cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi, and Visakhapatnam, among others.

Check out the complete list:

  1. Kandla, Gujarat — 1.87 feet
  2. Paradip, Odisha — 1.93 feet
  3. Bhavnagar, Gujarat — 2.70 feet
  4. Mumbai, Maharashtra — 1.90 feet
  5. Okha, Gujarat — 1.96 feet
  6. Mormugao, Goa — 2.06 feet
  7. Cochin, Kerala — 2.32 feet
  8. Andhra Pradesh — 1.77 feet Tuticorin
  9. Khidirpur, West Bengal — 0.49 feet
  10. Mangalore, Karnataka — 1.87 feet
  11. Chennai, Tamil Nadu — 1.87 feet
  12. Tuticorin, Tamil Nadu — 1.9 feet

Over a hundred years from now, the situation seems much worse for the year 2120, with practically every coastal city in India highlighted in red and set to be below the tide level.

According to the UN report, sea level rise would threaten over 40 million people in India by 2050. According to the report, sea levels in Asia are increasing at a faster rate than the worldwide average. To prevent this global calamity, the IPCC has proposed a considerable reduction in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions.
