Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) predicts an increase in severe storms and prolonged Scorching heatwaves in near future.
According to Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), the northern hemisphere will face a very hot summer, in addition to thunderstorms and drought.
“Hurricanes in temperate regions are helping to get air pollution, destructive storms and Unbearable heatwaves are expected to increase,” said scientist Charles G Gertler.
The study noted that this change can be described as extreme weather phenomenon, which means the spells of winter and summer could be more severe than usual, such as heavy rain or severe heat that scope the drought and the continuation of weather for extended time period.
These weather upsets are expected to be replicated in the future due to global climate change, which in turn will lead to disasters, as high temperatures could cause 5% increase in life losses.
