NEW DELHI : Global warming-induced climate change has started taking its toll on animals, plants and even humans. Until 2019, around 14,000-25,000 pairs of breeding emperor penguins would gather every year at Halley Bay colony in Antarctica, making it the second-largest penguin colony in the world after Coulman Island, also in Antarctica. Today, the colony at Halley Bay has almost disappeared, as per a 2019 study by the British Antarctic Survey. The deteriorating air quality in large cities like Delhi, particularly during winter, has serious health implications. To be sure, as per the Centre for Science and Environment, 30% of premature deaths in India are caused by air pollution. The recent bushfire in Australia killed an estimated one billion animals and has endangered more than 100 different species.
