Dear readers,

Climate change is severely impacting food prices and intensifying wildfires.

It may also affect the carbon absorbing capacity of forests, and is endangering animal life.

A new study finds that the Kaziranga National Park is a net carbon emitter and climate change may make it worse.

The United Nations climate science body, the IPCC, will publish a report on climate change adaptation this month.

This week we also learn about an Antarctic iceberg that released 158 billion tonnes of water into ocean.

To make sense of these and other climate trends, purchase the State of India's Environment 2022 here.
