Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow :
Of course, human activity is chiefly responsible for the increasing problem of global warming. In the last century, the rapid increase in the consumption of hydrocarbon as well as the vigorous expansion of the industries and domestic markets for halocarbons have drastically altered the atmospheric concentration of numerous gases. This has altered nature’s auto – balancing mechanism.

As a result, the world is now struck with several environmental problems; including the problems of acid rain, melting of glacial ice, large scale evaporation of water in tropics, increase in cloudiness in higher latitudes and so on. The implications of these changes on human life are likely to be enormous and may cause a series of adverse effects.
One of the direct effects of global warming is the altering of the heat budget and its regional variations in the atmosphere, the primary driver of weather systems around the world. The potential impact of warming on the monsoon in India is of serious concern. The warming, though widespread across the country, is more pronounced over northern India. 

An important effect of global warming on meteorological conditions is an increase in sea surface temperature in the oceans around the subcontinent Food production and food security, fresh water supply, forest biodiversity, coastal settlements, fishing and more will be adversely affected. India, like most developing countries, is committed to the principle of common responsibffirv in addressing climate change. India needs to chart multiple strategies to cope with the impending threats of climate change which are additional to the existing environmental stresses. Pursuing a sustainable development model is critical to addressing climate change in India and elsewhere. India should adopt strategies for sustainable development irrespective of the climate change debate. It involves economic growth, social equity and environmental sustainabilty.
