An "Extreme Heat Belt" will soon emerge in the U.S.
 

 
A new study reveals the emergence of an "extreme heat belt" from Texas to Illinois, where the heat index could reach 125°F at least one day a year by 2053.

The big picture: In just 30 years, climate change will cause the Lower 48 states to be a far hotter and more precarious place to be during the summer.

-The findings come from a hyperlocal analysis of current and future extreme heat events published Monday by the nonprofit First Street Foundation.

-The new report is unique for examining current and future heat risks down to the property level across the country, and joins similar risk analyses First Street has completed for flooding and wildfires.

-As average temperatures increase due to human-driven greenhouse gas emissions, mainly from the burning of fossil fuels for energy, instances of extreme heat are forecast to escalate.

-This report makes clear where households will be vulnerable to what would now be considered almost unheard-of heat indices, which show how the air feels from the combination of air temperature and relative humidity.


Threat Level: The report, which is based on First Street's peer reviewed heat model, shows that the number of Americans currently exposed to "extreme heat," defined as having a maximum heat index of greater than 125°F, is just 8 million.

-However, due to the anticipated warming during the next three decades, that number is expected to balloon to 107 million people, an increase of 13 times over 13 years.

-The developing "Extreme Heat Belt" forms a region of vulnerability from northern Texas to Illinois, and includes the cities of St. Louis, Kansas City, Memphis, Tulsa and Chicago.

-By 2030, some coastal areas in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic may also experience days with a heat index above 125°F, the report found.


Zoom in: The report shows a country that will have to grapple with the effects of increased heat exposure nearly everywhere, though there will be distinctions based on geography.

-For example, the study finds that in 2053, the West will have the highest chance for long durations with "local hot days," which are days that exceed the temperatures typically experienced for a particular area.

-The Gulf and Southeast will see the highest chances and longest duration of exposure to what are termed "dangerous days," with a heat index greater than 100°F, the report found.

Earth travelling for millions of yrs, at 100s of thousands of miles per hrs > human caused climate change.

If you believe climate is changing is moreso from human activity on Earth rather than the rotations, heating Earth core and planet travelling at high speeds at all times (as well as different atmospheric conditions in the galaxy/universe) being the cause - then youre a fckn idiot.

Oh, and slapped.

California is for sure getting hotter in the north. And my brothers live in Texas, I heard it’s been scorching

With rising sea levels due to "climate change", why don't they just pump ocean water inland, and then filter and desalinate the ocean water. This will fix drought issues.

Just a thought bro…you ever thought that that could be backwards. Maybe the the rotation is speeding up because the planet is getting hotter? I think they both go hand in hand, just don’t know which way.

No. The Earth is travelling on its own accelerator, so its been moving since the dawn of its time.

Imagine a car engine, driving nonstop...the engine will heat up more the longer it runs for - just like the Earth core right now as we speak.

We're just Ants on the surface, trying to find food.

No. But I bet you believe humans are causing climate change, more than the actual universal climate - because humans are much more impactful than the galaxy- right?...smfh

Normally I would insult your intelligence, but today I wont.

Easily the dumbest chit ever. The climate changes naturally. Extracting and then pumping that chit into the atmosphere and water is speeding up what happens naturally. What is hard to understanding? The Earth is a living breathing organism, just like your body you pump the wrong things in your body it increases the chance for an early death.

Clearly explain how this process would make the Earth speed up? I explained my premise as to why, lets see yours.

And remember, the Earth is 70% water...

Pumping salty water from the sea and desalinating it is what they do in Saudi Arabia. It's a huge source of fresh water.

It's also expensive and inefficient and requires a lot of energy which is why it isn't done more. We may be forced to at some point though
