Letter To Editor | The Heat Wave in Kashmir

SINCE years now, we have been joking and cursing summers in Kashmir. Every year is the same tale of rising temperatures. This year too, Kashmir is witnessing high temperatures and alien heat. However, what needs to be done is to identify the cause of this rise.

We can’t overlook the elephant in the room. Climate change is a reality and has been showing its presence through erratic weather patterns, unusual precipitation trends, melting glaciers and rising temperatures.

Ours is an abundant ecosystem which needs to be nurtured. We must make proactive sustainable and environmental friendly choices. We cannot go on abusing the environment and expecting it to nurture us in return. How we treat the environment is how the environment will treat us. An onslaught on the health and life of the environment is also an onslaught on our health and life.
