Record-Breaking Heat Grips India Amid Rash of Farmer Suicides

  • By MICHAEL EDISON HAYDEN May 20, 2016, 10:59 PM ET

Temperatures in India reached a record-breaking 123.8 degrees Fahrenheit today, according to the Associated Press, suffocating parts of the country, and drawing further attention to a tragic rash of suicide deaths among the nation's impoverished farmers, who are battling drought and other environmental conditions that stifle agricultural production.
May tends to be an extraordinarily hot month for India, but the recent heat has rendered wells, rivers, and reservoirs completely dry, punishing crop production for the estimated 95.8 million to 263 million who rely on farming to live, according to census data.
Last year, a heat wave in India claimed 2,330 lives. Refrigeration and air-conditioning are a luxury there, and many rural residents do not have adequate access to electricity.
Farmer suicides are caused by a number of financial factors beyond environmental conditions, and the country has undergone a dramatic shift in wealth from rural parts of the country to urban centers in recent decades.
One agricultural region, Marathwada, located in the Indian state of Maharashtra, saw some 400 suicides through mid-May this year, according to a report published on Tuesday in The Indian Express newspaper. Over the past 16 months, 1,548 distressed farmers have been reported dead from suicide in the region, the paper said.  ABC News has not be able to verify the suicide figures.
Rajasthan, Gujarat, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh are included among the states that have been most badly afflicted by the mass suicides, but the problem is considered to be a pervasive throughout the country.
Some officials have attributed the farmers suicides in part to climate change in the past.
"This is the first effect of climate change, I must say. Because of it, there is no water, there is no agricultural development, and that is why farmers commit suicide," Maharashtra's Rural Development and Water Conservation minister, Pankaja Munde told an Indian cable news network in December 2015.
India was in the spotlight at the 2015 United Nations climate change conference in Paris, where Prime Minister Narendra Modi argued a case for India to strengthen development, while simultaneously acknowledging that climate change is causing danger to the densely populated county.
"The heat wave in India is another example that our climate is changing," said Ben Horton, a scientist at the University of Rutgers who focuses on climate change. "We are now experiencing climate extremes that include droughts, wildfires, flood, storms, and tropical cyclones as well."

Yes, it's 'NORMALLY' hot in India ...they have seasonal periods of rain/cooler temperatures that allow them years of farming records for growing grains and other crops that feed their livestock and supply food for their families --- this has been a major heat-wave disaster for several years.  Now the seasonal cooler cycle has disappeared as well as the rains and ground water supplies - the entire farming region is disappearing within 5 years! 

That's how rapidly Global Warming is impacting parts of this world. Evil or Very Mad

"...Air conditioning use in India is growing at a whopping 20 percent per year...


All these systems generate heat...

Yes, indeed ...and as you often are quite able to state the obvious and just leave it laying around like a pile of warm turds in the middle of a road; what pray tell does that have to do with the farming/farmers crisis in India? Rolling Eyes

Didn't you say that heat was the problem...?

Heat generated by cars and air conditioners isn't the problem, it's the emissions that raise temperatures.

Adding more heat raises temperatures...

From what I've been hearing via my India computer network friends; that with the technology/call centers opening up in India the young people are leaving the rural regions {as most do looking for wages} and that is leaving the parents with little to no labor help out in the fields.  Toss into that problem the record breaking 5 year drought and painful heat indices and they are suffering horribly. 

While India sits on her hands and ponders how to obtain more donated food for their starving the area's that need attention for cultivation - new farming techniques and ideas are just left to languish in back water methods and old world ways - with an aging farm work force that has no one to left to teach those farming skills too! No

Not appreciably. The actual heat given off by combustion, electricity, etc. doesn't alter the global climate.

Do you mean the extra emissions from all the extra vehicle exhausts, and from all the extra power stations that are needed to provide all the extra electricity that is needed to run the extra air conditioning systems and all the other extra heat generating modern technology over there...!?



If you were locked in a sauna with someone, and you were already suffering from the heat being too much...

Would it be even hotter for you if the other person was;

a) breathing (adding more CO2 to the local atmosphere)?

b) farting (adding more methane to the local atmosphere)?

c) breathing and farting?

d) switching on an electric fan heater and blowing the extra hot air at you?

What is wrong with you people!?


You try to tell us that gas emissions are causing temp rises by acting as an insulating layer high in atmosphere and trapping heat... right!?

Trapping the heat from the SUN, Tommy. Human activity isn't generating enough actual heat energy to warm the planet. But adding CO2 and other greenhouse gases to the atmosphere makes it release less of the heat from solar energy.

CO2 levels are of miniscule levels in the air/atmosphere around us... and have not changed beyond the margin of error of any 'scientific analysis' for thousands of years.


However... the increase in additional heat from sources here on earth from engines and electrical devices is undeniable!!!


You are quick to tell us about the farts of a cow and how when you add all the farts up from every cow collectively... that this is a huge level of gas and cause etc..

But when I point out direct impact of heat sources... you are quick to dismiss all as individual isolated events and with no collective size or impact etc...!!!



But then if your claim of more gasses being greater level of insulation is true... then it is also true that any addition of heat from human activity sources will have a greater impact on higher Temps throughout too!!!


As the extra heat doesn't just vanish does it!?


It is also extra heat and extra heat being trapped!!!

THERE'S NOTHING WRONG with people not completing high school, or having a broken or interrupted education,   if they are flexible in their thinking, willing to learn, motivated to find out how things work, observant and maintaining a clear and rational perspective --  and intelligent enough as to be able to collect, analyse and understand/utilise that newfound information...

(AFTER ALL some of the nicest, fairest and best people one may meet never completed school..
AND some of the wealthiest self-made people don't have university educations..
AND it's long been obvious, that the 'best schools' don't turn out the best people..).

HOWEVER,  it's a completely different matter again, when you encounter a plain stupid and proudly ignorant dolt the likes of Tommy Monk, who obviously not only left school with less-than-zero understanding of scientific principles,  but is so narrowly focused, close minded, deliberately blind to what is happening around them, and whose stubborn refusal to learn anything new is powered along by moronically dogmatic agendas..
