Life as a construction worker is tough enough, but 29-year-old Yogendra Tundre and his wife, Lata, now have to deal with an unprecedented heatwave and record high temperatures. Temperatures in New Delhi have touched 45 degrees Celsius (113 Fahrenheit) this year, often causing Yogendra and Lata, who work at the same construction site, to fall ill. “Because of the heat, sometimes I don’t go to work. I take days off,” Lata said. Scientists have linked the early onset of intense summer temperatures to climate change.
