Birds ‘fall from the sky’ as India’s blistering heatwaves
Schools are also told to suspend uniforms, adjust classroom
hours and ensure teachers can administer first aid for pupils
Animal rescuers in Gujarat, the home state of India’s premier,
Narendra Modi, say thousands of birds have fallen from the sky
during a succession of blistering heatwaves, as Indian schools
begin classes earlier to avoid peak mid-day temperatures.
Doctors in an animal hospital in the city of Ahmedabad managed
by an NGO, Jivdaya Charitable Trust, were seen feeding dozens
of birds with multi-vitamin tablets and injecting water into
their mouths on Wednesday as temperatures in Gujarat exceeded 46C.

And it's only mid-May.
OK ... this seems to be a trend. Whether it's "global" warming or
just a regional shift in weather patterns, it is becoming obvious
that the time could soon come when most of India is uninhabitable
by humans, and a lot of the wildlife too.
So THEN what ? Where will they all go ? We're talking maybe a
BILLION people on the move - makes the Ukraine exodus a drop
in the proverbial bucket.
Tibet ? China owns that and China and India don't get along
very well. Might not be able to grow much FOOD there either.
Maybe Australia ,,,
