(ORDO NEWS) — Scientists have said that the human body may not be able to cope with such high temperatures and humidity, which may soon be established on the planet.
A new study among young people has shown that when humidity reaches its absolute maximum, the upper limit of human adaptation is only 31°C.
This is four degrees less than theoretical estimates, and for older people the threshold is probably even lower.
Yes, a dry and hot climate is much easier for a person to tolerate. In a completely dry environment, the human survival threshold is probably around 50 °C.
The bad news is that climate change is causing excessive global warming and water evaporation, meaning the world is getting warmer and wetter.
The threat of exceeding temperature thresholds is becoming more and more likely. Especially in the tropics.
