(ANSA) – NEW DELHI, MAY 14 – The extreme heat that has been affecting northern India and the capital Delhi for weeks has not subsided. After a few days of relative respite, yesterday the thermometer reached 46 degrees again in various areas, with the lows never below 28, while the Meteorological Department expects a further rise over the weekend, up to 48 degrees.
According to a shocking report from Greenpeace, the average maximum temperature will rise by five degrees by the end of the century, and 48 degrees in Delhi will become the summer norm. The study points to the risks for the poorest sections of the population, who will suffer most from these extreme climatic conditions. (HANDLE).
