Experts say that by 2050, India’s ‘Taj Mahal’, the eighth wonder of the world, may disappear into the Yamuna. The researchers indicated this from the COP-27 climate conference held in Egypt last year. Last week (Monday night), Yamuna water entered the Taj Mahal premises in Agra due to continuous rains. About 45 years ago, such an incident happened in the Taj Mahal. Climatologists believe that this historic scene is a reflection of the forecast of the COP-27 conference. It is said that the building may be lost in the water of Yamuna anytime in the next decade. After the Yamuna water entered the Taj Mahal, a report by the Delhi-based exceptional news portal The New India highlighted the future of this model of conjugal love of the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan.
The report also said that the Taj Mahal is at great risk due to climate change. The monument is in dire straits of air pollution. Day by day the color of the wall is getting pale. The polluted water of Yamuna has been mixed with it again. All in all, the building has lost its color. In this way, the famous tourist center is currently half-submerged due to various problems. However, the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) has completely ruled out the possibility of being damaged by flood waters. He said, “The monument is not under threat even if the surrounding water is swollen.” Because, the water has not yet entered the basement. This season’s record rainfall has brought severe floods across large areas of North India. The water of the Yamuna river has swelled in water. The water has reached the borders of the Taj Mahal. The water is tumbling against the walls of the white monument. The garden behind the building was also flooded.
Taj Mahal is already under threat in the country which is on the top list of air pollution. Excess carbon emissions in the air are pushing towards disaster. The country’s toxic air has turned the Taj Mahal’s white marble brown and green. Toxic air is now associated with terrible floods. UK-based company Uswitch conducted a study using artificial intelligence on how the climate will affect the world’s top tourist destinations in the coming years. Destinations include Agra, Auckland, Barcelona, Beijing, Berlin, Dubai, Edinburgh, Giza, South Africa, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Moscow, New York, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, Tokyo and Toronto. It predicts the risk of flooding in major places around the world, including Agra, Amsterdam and Rio de Janeiro.
The study paints a grim picture of what could happen in the future if the world does not tackle climate change. Every country in the year 2100 is expected to be greatly affected by climate change.
