A study by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers reveals that many countries will likely be inhabitable due to global warming in a few years.
Temperatures will continue to rise in the summer of 2022. But when you look at the climate forecasts, the temperature rise is by no means a reason to rejoice. According to a report by researchers at the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands, published in the journal PNAS, in 50 years, about 3.5 billion people are expected to suffer from extreme heat. That’s almost half the world’s population.
Which countries are concerned?
Therefore, all these people would live in areas with an average temperature above 29°C. This means global warming could make some parts of the world uninhabitable by 2070.
According to the study, one of the biggest losers of the climate crisis would be the north of China. About 400 million people live in the region around Beijing alone. Temperatures in this area could rise sharply, making northern China the hottest part of the world by 2070.
The study says:
Because of deadly heat waves caused by climate change, this region will become the hottest part of the world.
In addition to China, Bangladesh is also seriously threatened. The ever-increasing population will have to struggle with the consequences. In addition to heavy heat, flooding should also be on the agenda.
As a result, the threat of climate change could reach proportions that endanger human life:
The rise in temperatures and humidity in summer could reach a level at which the human organism can no longer survive without protection.
Dhaka, Bangladesh’s capital with over 11 million inhabitants, could have been entirely swallowed by 2070.
