The temperature in the city is rising and the matter is of grave concern. If not attended to now, it will lead to some irreversible damage and leave us with no natural resources for the next generation.

According to a study by the Faculty of Natural Sciences, Jamia Millia Islamia, the temperature in Delhi has risen by an average of 1-1.5 degree Celsius from the year 2001 to 2009. The rise is even more in the high-density areas like Chandni Chowk, Laxmi Nagar, Dhaula Kuan and Mayur Vihar Phase 1, where a rise of 2-2.5° Celsius has been recorded on the heat map developed by the faculty.
