India, along with Pakistan and Bangladesh, could face unsurvivable temperatures and deadly heatwaves within the next eight decades, warns a study by the researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The areas likely to be hardest hit by the year 2100 are north India, Bangladesh and southern Pakistan, home to nearly 1.5 billion people. In the last four years, over 4,246 people in India have died due to severe weather conditions. To deal with the rising temperatures, the Indian government is trying to expand access to electric power, in part to cope with rising heat, and aims to connect all homes by 2019.
