It’s around 1.40 on a bright sunny day in July. The campus of Panjab University (PU), Chandigarh, is abuzz with ongoing admissions. The Student Centre is packed. Laughter, cheers, and chattering permeate the air.

The study in the journal Science found that 82 percent of key ecological processes — including genetic diversity and migration patterns — are being altered by global warming. These effects extend to land, oceans and freshwater environments, even though temperatures have risen just about 1.87 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius) over pre-industrial times due to fossil fuel burning. “We now…
