MUMBAI: The state cabinet was on Wednesday presented with the global warming report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, with an overall focus on Maharashtra and an emphasis on its coastal belt, particularly Mumbai.


Calling for mitigating measures, the environment department, while making the presentation, reiterated that if temperatures rise by 2-2.5 degrees Celsius on account of climate change, the city and the state will be among the world’s worst-affected spots.
