The natural protection to the security of this country will be greatly effected.The several rivers which take birth in Himalayas which are perennial source of water will be get effected.India may have to spend more and more for strengthening the military power,in case if required to combat.There will be encroachments from the China that would become a great threat to the sovereignity of the country.Pakistan too may take undue advantage.

A rise of a couple meters would flood the streets of many coastal cities, necessitating their evacuation. Low-lying countries such as many in Indonesia could be almost entirely submerged.
What will then happen to us ?
v Mumbais Nariman Point will be submerged.

v 40% of Himalayan glaciers would vanish.

v Ganga delta will turn infertile.

v 25% wild life will perish.
