Global warming boosts deadly humidity levels 14.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Millions of people living in South Asia face a deadly threat from heat and humidity driven by global warming according to a new study published in the journal Science Advances. Most of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh will experience temperatures close to the limits of survivability by 2100, without emissions reductions. The research says the fraction of the population exposed to dangerous, humid heat waves may reach 30%. South Asia is home to one-fifth of the world's inhabitants. Wet bulb threat Most official weather stations around the world measure temperature with two thermometers. The first, or 'dry bulb' instrument, records the temperature of the air. The other, or 'wet bulb' thermometer, measures relative humidity in the air and the results are normally lower than just the pure air temperature. For humans, this wet bulb reading is critically important. While the normal temperature inside our bodies is 37°C, our skin is usually at 35°C. This temperature difference allows us to dissipate our ...

US scientists contradict Trump's climate claims 9.8.2017 deccanherald.com
As President Donald Trump touts new oil pipelines and pledges to revive the nations struggling coal mines, federal scientists are warning that burning fossil fuels is already driving a steep increase in the United States of heat waves, droughts and floods. It is the latest example of collisions between Trumps environmental policies and the facts presented by his governments experts. Contradicting Trumps claims that climate change is a "hoax," the draft report representing the consensus of 13 federal agencies concludes that the evidence global warming is being driven by human activities is "unambiguous." That directly undercuts statements by Trump and his Cabinet casting doubt on whether the warming observed around the globe is being primarily driven by man-made carbon pollution. "There are no alternative explanations, and no natural cycles are found in the observational record that can explain the observed changes in climate," says the report, citing thousands of peer-reviewed studies. "Evidence for a ...
