Too hot for this world? Researchers enemy heat of life to be feared in Asia

Dark red and purple are currently on around the world in fashion – but not in the summer clothes, but on the weather maps. Almost 40 degrees in Germany, to 45 degrees, in France, in India, the 50-degree mark, fell in the hottest summer since the beginning of weather recording at times. According to official data, more than 100 people died on the subcontinent so far to the consequences of this extreme heat wave. And the people in the most populous country in the world could meet, according to a report by the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC) in the coming years is even harder. The experts at the IPCC fear that the conditions in some regions will soon be so hostile that people can’t survive down there on a permanent basis.

Meteorologists register almost 500 heat waves

Between March and July, the heat wave is breaking a rule on India. This is this much in years. But for the past ten years, you are not only intense, but also longer. Above all, they are piling up. Almost 500 heat waves, meteorologists recorded alone in the summer of 2018 in 2010, it had been in accordance with your strict criteria 21. More than 5,000 people have died in this period, the impact of extreme heat waves. In the face of more than a billion inhabitants, you might think the hardly.

Up to 45 degrees expected: for the First time a Red alert call in France

The June 2019 was the case not only in Germany, the hottest since weather forecasters and record. In Churu, a 120.000 inhabitants is a city in the North Indian province of Rajasthan, climbed the temperatures unfathomable to 50.6 degrees Celsius. In Bihar, the poorest province in the country, closed by the authorities for five days, all schools and universities. The people were encouraged to stay at home. Many millions went to work anyway, because you need the money to Survive. A quandary, from which many Indians will come in the coming decades is hard to find. Because the prospects of climate scientists are grim.

Horror scenarios for parts of India and Bagladesh

According to the IPCC presented scenarios, the average global surface temperature will rise by 2100 by up to 4.5 degrees Celsius. This is not only far above the in the Paris climate agreement adopted the goal of a global warming of less than two degrees Celsius in many Parts of South Asia, as well as some regions in the North-East of India and in Bangladesh, it would exceed, according to estimates by researchers at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (mit), the limit to the ability to Survive. In 2015, researchers in the journal “Nature Climate Change had expressed” similar concerns for some regions of the Persian Gulf.

If the air-conditioning of the body is failing

The theory of the scientists is based on the so-called “wet bulb temperature”, in which the combination of outdoor temperature and humidity analyzed and evaluated. The reason for this is For the people of heat will be life-threatening if the organism can no longer evaporate because of the normal cooling is hindered mechanism of extreme humidity. The border, with the naming of the wet-bulb temperature, which, up to that of the natural cooling effect still works. For the above-mentioned regions, this limit is at 35 degrees. This value increases, the cooling capacity is exhausted. The danger in this scenario: It is even healthy and fit people live dangerous.
