HEAT STROKE - John Wawrzonek

HOW HOT CAN IT GET?


IT CAN KILL PEOPLE AND STOP FOOD FROM GROWING
A NEW STUDY HAS FOUND that 30 percent of the world’s population is currently exposed to potentially deadly heat for 20 days per year or more—and like a growing forest fire, climate change is spreading this extreme heat.

WITHOUT MAJOR REDUCTIONS in emissions of greenhouse gases such as CO2, up to three in four people will face the threat of dying from heat by 2100. However, even with reductions, one in two people at the end of the century will likely face at least 20 days when extreme heat can kill, according to the analysis, published in Nature Climate.
