Wet Bulb Temperature Soon to Become Leading Cause of Death

‘Wet bulb Temperature’ is probably a new phrase for many of you. It won’t be for much longer. We’re drifting into a superheated world where humans will die from being out of doors at the wrong time of day. And temperatures in wet bulb range are not friendly to human agriculture, either. Read and weep.

As our Abrupt Climate Change Catastrophe becomes more extreme the leading cause of death on the planet will be humans hitting their   Wet Bulb Temperature.

Robertscribbler has written about this phenomenon here:

Never-before-seen high temperatures and high humidity are resulting in thousands of heat injuries and hundreds of heat deaths across India. In some places, wet bulb readings appear to be approaching 35 C — a level of latent heat never endured by humans before fossil fuel burning forced global temperatures to rapidly warm. A reading widely-recognized as the limit of human physical endurance and one whose more frequent excession would commit the human race to enduring an increasing number of episodes of killing heat. A boundary that scientists like Dr. James Hansen warned would be exceeded if a human-forced warming of the world was not halted.’  Article continues.

  1. 35C is not very hot. Only dry place get very hot as if there is water the evaporation of it take in heat
    cooling the surroundings, they also prodce clouds blocking too much sun, producing a nice regulation temp, in deed a “wet” 35 C is the kind temp we use greenhouse to get, great for plants!!

  2. Did you read the article I linked to? The issue is high temperature plus high humidity at that temperature (for ‘Muricans, 35 C, that’s 95 F). I’ve been on military bases in Florida where the temperature has hit that level with accompanying high humidity. It’s called ‘wet bulb’, and when the temp gets that high with accompanying high humidity, training slows down a LOT. No more grass drills, no heavy lifting, no PT out in the sun. As for your plants, the consensus from my conservation biologist friends is that temperatures above 35 C start causing problems with plant photosynthesis. For every 1 C of average temperature rise, the amount of water in the atmosphere increases by some 7%. Again, my friend Kevin Hester explains the issue in some detail.
