Heat Stress

The map above shows areas with 90 or more days per year above 32° C under the 1° C above the 1850-1900 average scenario, which we passed in 2017. Explore more about the changes in global temperature distribution under other scenarios presented in Probable Futures’ predictions.

Hot, humid conditions contribute to heat stress, heat-related deaths, and loss of productivity. The rapid decrease of the albedo effect associated with the Arctic will result in rising global temperatures creating a warmer and hotter climate.
