Hotter than Dubai: US cities in risk of Temperature of the Middle East by 2100 | climate crisis

The climate crisis risks pushing many Americans completely new climate realities, with a new analysis showed that 16 US cities are on risk of with summer temperature on denomination with locations in Middle East towards the end of in century.

Heatwaves stirred up huge streaks of USA this summer, finishing almost third of in population under some kind of of heat recommended temperature and driving temperature up to 115F (46C) in parts of Great Plains. hundreds of heat records dropped, from Boston, Massachusetts which the hit 100F (37C)in Portland, Oregon, which reached 102F (38.9C). on Tuesday.

But global heating can sink in many places in USA of its kind of heat extremes previously thought unthinkable, changing the climate for years to come.term in the conditions now common in places far south or even far overseas.

Analysis of temperature trends from Climate Central found that summer temperatures in 2100 for many cities will more like conditions south, 437 miles south on average, with Washington DC in summer more like Austin, Texas’; Boston becomes more like Philadelphia; and Billings, Montana, reminiscent of El Paso, Texas.

Some US cities can be sorted out of the climate that cities are currently facing in Other countries such as Los Angeles is becoming more like Tuspan in Mexico. The chosen ones may go on en epic climate journey to an end of in century, with Summer in Austin is getting like modern Dubai, Phoenix resembling Saudi Arabia, and Las Vegas resembling Kuwait.

” real risks will in heat waves, which are now random extreme events that will start last longer,” said Peter Girard, spokesman for Climate Central, and research organization made up of climate scientists and science communicators. “Of such kind of heatwaves will become the norm and dangers will be far away more gift. There will be people who never needed air conditioning who will face this is. It can quickly turn from uncomfortable to dangerous.”

The researchers collected temperature data from 1990 to 2020 to establish today’s “normal” temperatures and looked at 20 different predictions. of temperature is century under various climate change scenarios. They decided to compare the status quo to a scenario in which emissions that cause planetary heating are not drastically reduced. reduced and global the average temperature rises by about 3.6°C towards the end of in century.

world It has already heated up by about 1.2C compared to pre-industrial times, a situation that already helped spur the race of ferocious heatwaves and forest fires recently experienced in USA and Europe. “Extreme heat is a silent killer, but affects more Americans than any other weather emergency, especially in the most vulnerable part of our country,” said Gina McCarthy, White House spokeswoman. national climate advisor.

Many analysts expect temperatures rise will be limited below 3.6C, due to rising use of renewable energy sources, but Girard said that even lower levels of warming will cause shifts in climatic norms of US cities.

“Regardless of the scenario, it will be almost a term challenge almost everywhere,” he said. “Reducing emissions will slow down the rise in temperature rise as well as give governments and cities more time to take steps keep people Safely.”
