    Temperature level in Kerala on the increase

    Kerala is now in the hot mood, not because of General election but because of real hot temperature. The month March is coming to an end and now the mercury is raising high. In Palakkad it is reported that the day temperature has reached 41 degree Celsius. For the three or four days the reading is around this figure. In Kochi it is less comparatively with 37 degree.
    In Pathanamthitta district, Punalur also has high rates. as per schedule of our weather here the interim rain can be expected in April, by the middle (locally Vishu is a time for rain). Monsoon can be expected in June only.

    It is true that the temperature in Kerala has now reached its peak level and is much greater than usual. We ourselves are the only reason for this climatic changes. Comparing the temperature range of Kerala from few years back, a great changeover has happened and people find it very difficult to travel during summer. Now people cannot even survive without fans, air conditioners, etc.

    The main reasons for this climatic changes is that people cuts off big trees for timber in large scale and fails to re-plant it leading to the imbalance of ecosystem. Likewise many other human activities leads to climatic changes. So as an active citizen we should do our best to improve this situation.

    Correct. The reason for temperature hike is not only because of Cutting of trees but also the concrete buildings. People make very big buildings and will not plant a tree. Everybody should think of this and plant trees, then only our coming generation can survive on earth.

    Climate change may bring a better harvest in Kerala.
    Climate change may prove beneficial to Kerala in select sectors notwithstanding its negative impacts, including sea-level rise.
    The silver lining in the cloud is that it will increase the production of cocoa, coconut, and arecanut and positively influence the recruitment and catches of oil sardine during the post-south-west monsoon, says the second national communication to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The communication was prepared by the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests.
    A prediction on coconut farming made using a "validated coconut simulation model" stated that the yields were likely to be "positively influenced" by an increase in carbon dioxide (CO) and temperature of up to three degree Celsius. Researchers used the simulation model where the impact of elevated temperature and CO on coconut yields was simulated for different agro-climatic zones, it said.
    In the plantation crop sector, cocoa will also be "influenced indirectly by the increase in atmospheric temperature. Analysis indicated that a rise in temperature by 1 degree Celsius should be beneficial for crop productivity." The improvement in production, according to the report, was projected to be about 100 kg of dry beans per hectare.
