Global warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation. This traps heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. Interestingly, no study has so far supported the theory that global warming was causing natural calamities in the Himalayan region.

Environment, Forests and Climate Change Minister Prakash Javadekar told the Rajya Sabha in a written reply that there is no study reported so far, which supports the fact that many type of instances similar to natural calamities are occurring in the Himalayan region due to global warming.

Javadekar further added, "However, for monitoring and prediction of extreme weather events over the Himalayan region, India Meteorological Department has established state meteorological centers at Srinagar, Shimla, Dehradun, Gangtok, Guwahati and Agartala for forecast of natural calamities like very heavy rainfall, snowfall, thunderstorm, etc."
