How will climate change replicate on economies?

The researchers who have compiled this study are of the opinion that the deviation from historic norms caused by climate change is what will eventually impact the economies.

While the absolute temperature recorded in a country will no have much to do with measures of the economy , the digression from traditional norms will define the downfall in the economic growth of countries. These deviations from historic norms include cold snaps, heat waves, droughts, floods and all other natural disasters triggered by climate change.

Why is the Paris Agreement so vital?

The Paris Agreement is a multilateral agreement in response to climate change signed in 2016. The long term aim of the Paris Agreement is to keep the rise in global average temperature well below 2-degree degrees for this century and to limit the increase to 1.5 degree Celsius. It has 195 signatories to it and 186 parties including India.
