A new research headed by Zhiyong Wang from the Carnegie Institution for Science, a private nonprofit organization dedicated to ground-breaking scientific research, has discovered the specific system plants use to regulate their various response to heat between daytime and nighttime.
Thousands of people around the world will die of heat stroke, coastal flooding, diarrhoel disease, malaria and dengue and undernutrition.
A new study predicts that the number of "hot days" in New York City will triple, causing thousands of heat-related deaths annually by the year 2080.
Climate change is a global issue that is urgently needed to be addressed carefully and with haste due to its major impact on the environment and our health.
With climate change most associated with warming temperatures, scientists and the public alike tend to focus on the dangers of extreme weather such as heat waves, which is increasingly becoming the new norm. However, new research reveals that simple cold weather is more deadly than extremely hot days.
Exposure to extreme heat could increase four- to six-fold by 2050, due to both a warming climate and a population that's growing especially fast in the hottest regions of the country, according to new research.
It seems that extreme weather including torrential rains and blazing heat is becoming the new norm, and now new research indicates that more than half of hot extremes are caused by climate change.
