One third of the world’s population will die of heat by 2100
With an average increase of 36 degrees fahrenheit by the end of the century, nearly 30% of the world’s population could be mortally affected by heat waves, according to a study in Nature Climate Change.
Eighteen scientists have analyzed mortality around the world in relation to the different heat waves and concluded that if nothing is done to effectively fight against global warming, three-quarters of mankind will face deadly heat waves.
The most dangerous places will be the tropical areas which will present heat and humidity.
