Heat Strikes Back

This last summer was one of the hottest summers in recorded history.

According to a post from the New York Times, heat deaths in Arizona have tripled since 2014 and heat deaths in nevada have increased over fivefold.

What does this mean for the future? Due to global warming temperatures have continued to steadily rise, causing major heat waves to sweep across the world. Researchers told reporters that if the temperature continues to rise around the world by 2030 some parts of the world will be uninhabitable.

Dr. Bandala, professor of environmental science at the Desert Research Institute in Las Vegas, has said that a majority of the deaths that have occurred due to heat were people above the age of 50.

Dr. Bandala does not have all of the answers, but he told the New York Times in an interview, “our strategies are insufficient for the current climate, let alone what is coming.”
