The glacial burst in Uttarakhand puts focus back on climate change

The morning of February 7 was like any other for residents of Joshimath and nearby areas, till the hills began to shake. The Nanda Devi glacier broke, flooding the areas along the Alaknanda and Dhauliganga rivers in Uttarakhand. A day after the tragedy, rescue efforts are still on and climate experts have attributed the unfortunate incident to rising temperatures that have caused ice to melt.
