The threat of thousands of deaths: The inhabitants of the Earth were warned about the approach of an unbearable heat wave

Scientists have warned that global warming will soon make living conditions on Earth unbearable.
According to experts, from Death Valley in the United States to the Middle East and from India to the Sahara, people are already experiencing extremely uncomfortable temperatures due to climate change, and if no action is taken, the situation will worsen in other parts of the planet and unbearable heat will set in.

According to climate expert Zeke Hausfather, warming will cause extreme events to occur much more frequently. For example, the temperature in Death Valley in California reached 54.4 degrees Celsius in the summer of 2021. This is the highest on Earth ever recorded by modern instruments. And the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported that July this year was the hottest on record.

Scientists believe that rising temperatures will lead to intense droughts, wildfires, storms and floods. Rising heat waves have a devastating effect on agriculture and pose deadly dangers to people.

"Flooding results in a few casualties, maybe a few dozen. We are talking about thousands of deaths every time a heat wave hits the Earth. Such cataclysms are multiplying," said Robert Votar, director of the Pierre-Simon Laplace Institute.

Experts added that due to the temperature increase by two degrees, half of the population of our planet will suffer from such phenomena every five years.
