India’s power grids collapsed

2 posts / 0 new

The nation of India is dealing with an energy crisis, which has led to the largest blackout in the history of the world. Half the country went dark on Tuesday, as India’s power grids collapsed – leaving 620 million people without electricity. The blackout raises questions about India’s infrastructure and its capability to sustain an emerging superpower economy. The problem was made worse by a monsoon season with unseasonably warm temperatures, suggesting that as the climate crisis picks up, developing nations could be hardest hit by freak weather.
