Is climate change causing the rise in freakish weather conditions? | Mail Online
Scientists are not linking the bitter cold being experienced this year to climate change, but they say Delhi has been experiencing colder days during winter since 1997 due to continuous fog for several days and icy winds from Himalayas.
According to a paper published in the Journal of Indian Geophysical Union, during 1968-77 there were eight cold wave events over Bihar, while during 1978-99, there were 67 events of cold wave over the state.

Similarly, over UP, there were eight cold spells during 1968-77, and 47 during 1978-99.
