Merge[edit]

This should really be merged with Climate of India or Effects of global warming. It doesn't merit its own article. ~ UBeR 05:27, 9 May 2007 (UTC)

I disagree. Like the effects of global warming on Australia, this subject is known to impact the lives of millions of Indians per the latest IPCC impact report. Surely such a thing deserves its own article. Thanks. Saravask 00:47, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
I didn't really see much details on the effects on India in the last IPCC report. ~ UBeR 01:56, 14 May 2007 (UTC)
You've got to be joking—how do you explain this? And that in addition to Effects_of_global_warming_on_India#Citations all the refs listed in this article. South Asia (which India composes the vast majority of) is also mentioned multiple times in the official summary. At any rate, what matters is the impact, both on India and in the India-specific research and media coverage of global warming's effects. There are literally thousands of other articles (see lists of articles and news items). Saravask 02:28, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Merge or not, this article is going to take a lot of work if it's going to survive on its own. It's extremely disjointed, a crazy patchwork of bits and pieces taken from other articles and thrown together without even the semblance of organization or connectivity. While the subject matter is certainly of import, and I applaud everyone's efforts to create this article, y'all are going to have to do some actual writing if you want this thing to work. Cutting and pasting stuff together at random just doesn't make the grade.--CurtisSwain (talk) 07:38, 22 September 2009 (UTC)

Melting glaciers causing dry rivers?[edit]

Temperature rises on the Tibetan Plateau, which are causing Himalayan glaciers to retreat, may reduce the flow rate of the Ganges, Brahmaputra, Yamuna, and other major rivers; hundreds of thousands of farmers depend on these rivers. According to a 2007 World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) report, the Indus River may run dry for the same reason.

This is devoid of logic. A melting glacier leads to increased (not decreased) amounts of water in those rivers fed by the particular glacier. And that is exactly what happened in Northern India over the past century, see Rühland et al. (2006). On the other hand, growing glaciers decrease the summer runoff in rivers, as happend in the Upper Indus Basin 1961–2000, see Fowler & Archer (2006). Isn't it kinda strange that Wikipedia doesn't even cite scientific articles for the above-mentioned claims, but newspaper commentaries and interviews? ––bender235 (talk) 13:09, 13 February 2009 (UTC)
