  • If the planet warms by 3 degrees Celsius (5.4 Fahrenheit), extreme heat and humidity will affect 1.2 billion people by 2100, according to new study.
  • High heat and humidity stop our bodies from cooling down, causing heat stress—the body temperature rises, and risk of organ damage increases.
  • Heat stress can lead to heat stroke, which can kill or cause disability.
  • The study is based on 40 climate simulations, and analyzing various environmental factors beyond just heat, like humidity, wind speed, sun angle and solar radiation.
