Global warming and health hazards to Indian farmers
Keywords:Depression, pollution induced asthma, Heat wave, Heat stroke, Sun stroke
Under severe global warming scenario, people, especially farmers would face chronic climate torments like, sun stroke, depression, pollution induced asthma, infertility, skin disorders, chronic kidney disease etc., since their main activity comes under open field conditions. If the climate stress continues beyond threshold level, it may lead to social disturbance, mental disorders, suicides etc. Psychological treatment combined with pharmaceutical treatment would serve better to release stress from climate related disorders. Limited management solutions have been suggested against sun stroke, depression, pollution induced asthma, infertility, skin disorders, chronic kidney disease. Still, many viable solutions are available across literature and also found presently at ground level practice. This area needs further intensive team research among medical, meteorological, and social scientists. Both Central and State Governments must enact strong policy on this line, if not done earlier. In addition, action must be taken by all the global countries to reduce greenhouse gas emission as per the Paris CoP agreement,2015.
