Death Valleys

Without successful climate change interventions, a new analysis shows that some regions of South Asia will experience extreme heat events fatal to humans by the late 21st  century.
 
As detailed in a new study published in Science Advances, the Indus and Ganges River Valleys face the most acute risk of fatally extreme heat. The regions’ vulnerabilities result from a unique combination of factors: A projected increase in heat and humidity combined with exposure of the regions’ dense, low-income and largely agricultural population to the elements.
