The Climate Action Foundation has already said that part of the US territory will be affected by temperatures above the “extreme risk” threshold this year. According to the National Weather Service (NWS), such a situation occurs when the perceived temperature exceeds 52 degrees Celsius. About 8 million Americans are at risk.
Citing research from the foundation, CNN warned Tuesday that both the intensity and number of the hottest days of the year will increase over the next 30 years. According to these calculations, by 2053, 107 million people in the United States will experience extreme weather conditions.
FSF research indicates that abnormal heat does not affect all areas to the same extent. The so-called community is a belt of extreme heat stretching from Texas to the Great Lakes on the border between the United States and Canada.
Experts determined that Florida’s Miami-Dade County would see the largest change in extreme temperatures. The seven warmest days (with a temperature of 39.4°C) predicted for 2023 will increase to 34 days in 2053. However, as the FSF points out, almost the entire country is at increased risk of heatstroke.
