Extreme global temperatures are pushing the human body “close to thermal limits”

How extreme heat affects your body


Independent 27th July 2019 Extreme global temperatures are pushing the human body “close to thermal
limits”, according to a climate scientist. Record-breaking heat has swept
through Europe this week with temperatures topping 40C in a number of
countries.

However, in places such as South Asia and the Persian Gulf,
people are already enduring temperatures reaching up to 54C. Despite all
the body’s thermal efficiencies, these areas could soon be uninhabitable,
according to Loughborough University climate scientist Dr Tom Matthews in
The Conversation.
