Wednesday and Thursday highs are 91, a bit above normal but hardly rare for mid-June in Virginia. Friday is hot - 96 degree, but it's back to the 80's by Saturday.

[quote] How Extreme Heat Kills, Sickens, Strains and Ages Us

When W. Larry Kenney, a professor of physiology at Pennsylvania State University, began studying how extreme heat harms humans, his research focused on workers inside the disaster-stricken Three Mile Island nuclear plant, where temperatures were as high as 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

In the decades that followed, Kenney has looked at how heat stress affects a range of people in intense environments: football players, soldiers in protective suits, distance runners in the Sahara.

Of late, however, his research has focused on a more mundane subject: ordinary people. Doing everyday things. As climate change broils the planet.

Heat advisories and excessive heat warnings were in effect on Monday across much of the eastern interior of the United States, following a weekend of record-smashing heat in the country’s Southwest. The heat will move farther Northeast in the next few days, according to the National Weather Service, into the upper Mississippi Valley, western Great Lakes and Ohio Valley.

With severe heat waves now affecting swaths of the globe with frightening regularity, scientists are drilling down into the ways life in a hotter world will sicken and kill us. The aim is to get a better grip on how many more people will be afflicted by heat-related ailments, and how frequent and severe their suffering will be. And to understand how to better protect the most vulnerable.

One thing is for sure, scientists say: The heat waves of the past two decades are not good predictors of the risks that will confront us in the decades to come. Already, the link between greenhouse-gas emissions and sweltering temperatures is so clear that some researchers say there may soon no longer be any point trying to determine whether today’s most extreme heat waves could have happened two centuries ago, before humans started warming the planet. None of them could have.

And if global warming is not slowed, the hottest heat wave many people have ever experienced will simply be their new summertime norm, said Matthew Huber, a climate scientist at Purdue University. “It’s not going to be something you can escape.”

What is tougher for scientists to pin down, Huber said, is how these climatic shifts will affect human health and well-being on a large scale, particularly in the developing world, where huge numbers of people are already suffering but good data is scarce. Heat stress is the product of so many factors — humidity, sun, wind, hydration, clothing, physical fitness — and causes such a range of harms that projecting future effects with any precision is tricky.

There also have not been enough studies, Huber said, on living full time in a warmer world, instead of just experiencing the occasional roasting summer. “We don’t know what the long-term consequences of getting up every day, working for three hours in nearly deadly heat, sweating like crazy and then going back home are,” he said.

The growing urgency of these issues is drawing in researchers, like Kenney, who didn’t always think of themselves as climate scientists. For a recent study, he and his colleagues placed young, healthy men and women in specially designed chambers, where they pedaled an exercise bike at low intensity. Then the researchers dialed up the heat and humidity.

They found that their subjects started overheating dangerously at much lower “wet-bulb” temperatures — a measure that accounts for both heat and mugginess — than what they had expected based on previous theoretical estimates by climate scientists.

Effectively, under steam-bath conditions, our bodies absorb heat from the environment faster than we can sweat to cool ourselves down. And “unfortunately for humans, we don’t pump out a lot more sweat to keep up,” Kenney said.

Heat is climate change at its most devastatingly intimate, ravaging not just landscapes and ecosystems and infrastructure, but the depths of individual human bodies.

Heat’s victims often die alone, in their own homes. Apart from heatstroke, it can cause cardiovascular collapse and kidney failure. It damages our organs and cells, even our DNA. Its harms are multiplied in the very old and very young, and in people with high blood pressure, asthma, multiple sclerosis and other conditions.

When the mercury is high, we are not as effective at work. Our thinking and motor functions are impaired. Excessive heat is also associated with greater crime, anxiety, depression and suicide.

The toll on the body can be strikingly personal. George Havenith, director of the Environmental Ergonomics Research Center at Loughborough University in England, recalled an experiment years ago with a large group of subjects. They wore the same clothes and performed the same work for an hour, in 95 degree heat and 80% humidity. But by the end, their body temperatures ranged from 100 degrees to 102.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

“A lot of the work we’re doing is trying to understand why one person ends up on one side of the spectrum and the other one on the other,” he said.

For years, Vidhya Venugopal, a professor of environmental health at Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai, India, has been studying what heat does to workers in India’s steel plants, car factories and brick kilns. Many of them suffer from kidney stones caused by severe dehydration.

One encounter a decade ago has stayed with her. She met a steelworker who had been working 8- to 12-hour days near a furnace for 20 years. When she asked him how old he was, he said 38 to 40.

She was sure she had misunderstood. His hair was half white. His face was shrunken. He didn’t look younger than 55.

So she asked how old his child was and how old he was when he got married. The math checked out.

“For us, it was a turning point,” Venugopal said. “That’s when we started thinking, heat ages people.”

Adelaide M. Lusambili, a researcher at the Aga Khan University in Kenya, is investigating heat’s effects on pregnant women and newborns in Kilifi County, on Kenya’s coast. In communities there, women fetch water for their families, which can mean walking long hours in the sun, even while pregnant. Studies have linked heat exposure to preterm births and underweight babies.

The most heartbreaking stories, Lusambili said, are of women who suffered after giving birth. Some walked great distances with their 1-day-olds on their backs, causing the babies to develop blisters on their bodies and mouths, and making breastfeeding difficult.

It has all been enough, she said, to make her wonder whether climate change is reversing the progress Africa has made on reducing newborn and childhood mortality.

Given how many people have no access to air conditioners, which are themselves making the planet hotter by consuming huge amounts of electricity, societies need to find more sustainable defenses, said Ollie Jay, a professor of heat and health at the University of Sydney.

Jay has studied the body’s responses to sitting near an electric fan, wearing wetted clothing and sponging down with water. For one project, he recreated a Bangladeshi garment factory in his lab to test low-cost ways of keeping workers safe, including green roofs, electric fans and scheduled water breaks.

Humans have some ability to acclimatize to hot environments. Our heart rate goes down; more blood is pumped with each stroke. More sweat glands are activated. But scientists primarily understand how our bodies adapt to heat in controlled laboratory settings, not in the real world, where many people can duck in and out of air-conditioned homes and cars, Jay said.

And even in the lab, inducing such changes requires exposing people to uncomfortable strain for hours a day over weeks, said Jay, who has done exactly that to his subjects.

“It’s not particularly pleasant,” he said. Hardly a practical solution for life in a stifling future — or, for people in some places, an increasingly oppressive present. More profound changes in the body’s adaptability will only occur on the time scale of human evolution.

R22 Asheville is nice, the mountains full of beautiful hardwood forests...but property crime is sky high, and the warm weather brings legions of "travelers" - young male grifters who try to destroy the parks and downtown area with their camp gear, drug use, violence and trash. Yesterday I saw some men break into the backyard of a vacant house across the street from me and set up a campsite. They were going through all the items stored in the back patio, and selecting things they want to use/sell. Cars get broken into everywhere as well.

A friend of mine was playing an open mic downtown, left around 11 PM and got his head bashed in and his Martin guitar stolen. It just sucks here with the drug-driven violence. 40 % of the police quit in the past year, so you never see any police on foot downtown and rarely see cop cars around.

I always hated the summer months, cannot wait until autumn. Years ago I vacationed in Australia, where it is the reverse of our seasons, really enjoyed the months, seeing guys in those footy shorts, expecting "something" to fall out of the leg opening. I rented a short term "flat" and then, too soon, returned to Manhattan where it was autumn.

I agree with the posters upthread - Brits it gets hot in London and it's time to start putting AC in the new construction. Enough with the excuses - it's hot there every summer.

Also, SF needs to start putting AC in their new construction. There are not many places in the US where you don't need AC at least 4-6 weeks out of the year. I want my bedroom at 68, which is optimal sleep temp.

The flooding in Australia sucks, but I hope their reservoirs and forests had time to soak up some of that water. 3 years ago the whole country was on fire and thousands of Koalas died. I guess we all have to prepare for extreme weather. People in a community in southern France are no longer allowed to use tap water and only get 2 bottles of drinking water per day. Heat warnings and droughts currently all over Europe. Even northern European countries get excessive heat and droughts now.

R324 The fjords in eastern Norway are not like what you picture from western Norway. We don't have those tall mountains, so we don't swim in ice water from melted snow. You can't swim in the fjords in western Norway, it's way too cold. Also, the fjord around Oslo is further south, which helps the temperature. The Oslo fjord is actually swimable, unlike those in western Norway.

It's been very comfortable in NYC all of May and June - maybe only 1-2 very hot days, and low humidity, which makes all the difference. I still have my windows closed for the winter - it hasn't been hot enough to open them wide yet. My apartment is still cool in the daytime and I still sleep under a blanket at night.

by Anonymousreply 331June 24, 2022 3:31 PM

While keeping the windows closed (with no AC?) like R331 is a little extreme, it has been very nice in the DC-NY corridor this month. One or two very hot days, but they are more than balance by the many days of temps in the 70s (below normal for June in Philly and DC) and nights cool enough to need a sweater.

While we have warm, humid summers most years and occasional heatwaves with temps over 95, by and large this part of the country has a very pleasant climate in my opinion. Winters cold enough so you know it's winter, with some snow every year, warm summers, and gorgeous springs and falls.

by Anonymousreply 332June 25, 2022 12:16 AM

R331 and R332 Sounds like Norway. You basically have our weather. So far nights have been cold. Most of June has been cold, days no warmer than18-20 degrees. We had a few warm days in the beginning of the month and this week has been nice, I slept with the window open last night, for the first time this summer. The good news is that the temps have stabilized on like 22°C, this is normal for Norway (not great but not terrible). Much better than the 18°C every day earlier this month.
