We’re in serious trouble’: Why a hotter world will be bad for our health When the temperature hit 40C in Britain last summer, the empty streets appeared “dystopian” to Dr Laurence Wainwright, a sustainability and psychiatry academic at Oxford University. Yet what he had assumed would serve as “a real wake-up call” on the world’s increasingly dangerous temperatures – which resulted in a European heatwave that killed more than 60,000 people last year – failed to prompt action. During the past month or so – as wildfires have torched more than 500 sq km of Greece, Arizona notched up a record-breaking 31 consecutive days at 43C or more and July became the hottest month ever recorded in the modern era – the extreme heat crisis has only appeared to grow. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2023/aug/11/were-in-serious-trouble-why-a-hotter-world-will-be-bad-for-our-health
