Temperatures in U.S. Cities to Break Heat Index by 2050, Study Warns

8

As the globe warms in the years ahead, days with extreme heat are forecast to skyrocket across hundreds of U.S. cities, a new study suggests, perhaps even breaking the “heat index.”

“Our analysis shows a hotter future that’s hard to imagine today,” study co-author Kristina Dahl, a climate scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists, said in a statement. “Nearly everywhere, people will experience more days of dangerous heat in the next few decades.”

By 2050, hundreds of U.S. cities could see an entire month each year with heat index temperatures above 100 degrees if nothing is done to rein in global warming.

The heat index, also known as the apparent temperature, is what the temperature feels like to the human body when relative humidity is combined with the air temperature. This is the first study to take the heat index – instead of just temperature – into account when determining the impacts of global warming, Dahl said.

  1. The globe warms = Fake News! This week it was snowing in Spain!!!

    Now that President Trump stopped the Deep State / Cabal’s weather manipulation and chemtrails, “climate change” will go back to its natural course. Many countries are seeing blue skies again.

    • They didn’t expect America to ever have a non-criminal President who’ll stop their climate change hoax by destroying their climate and earth intervention.
