Is there no escape from this scorching heat this year?The reports on the ground, predicting less than normal monsoon in most parts of India, is bad news. It is almost end July 2018, and we hear news of heat wave in so many parts of India. Why is this summer so hot? Is it only because of declining tree cover, or are there more reasons for this?
Will increased tree cover lead to good rainfall? The scientific reports in this connection, are totally divided on this subject.
What is the situation in other places, particularly New Delhi and Mumbai? Will the July rains offer us some respite this year?
