Hotcold Take: 3 Billion Will Live In Sahara Desert Like Heat By 2070

A third of the world could live in places as hot as the Sahara desert by 2070, WEF warns

Three billion people could live in places as hot as the Sahara desert within 50 years, the World Economic Forum (WEF) said on Wednesday.

The warning came after scientists found that a third of the world’s population could be forced to endure “unliveable” circumstances by 2070 if decisive action was not taken to halt climate change.

A research team made up of experts from the U.S., China and Europe analyzed rising global temperatures, comparing them to average climatic conditions over the last 6,000 years. Their findings were published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences last week.

Unless moves were made to reverse the damage wreaked on the environment by greenhouse gases, one in three people could live in areas where temperatures matched the hottest parts of the Sahara today, according to the scientific study. This could become a reality within decades, the researchers found, with average temperatures for that percentage of the population projected to be above 29 degrees Celsius (84 degrees Fahrenheit).

I mentioned this “study” previously, but, you know the Cult of Climastrology: they’re going to ramp everything up to 11.

The researchers took population growth projections into account in the study. Today, less than 1% of the earth’s land surface currently experiences this climate, scientists said — but by 2070, almost 20% of the planet’s land area would reach those temperatures.

What’s the penalty for making prognostications of doom that never materialize?

“The crops, livestock and irrigation that are the bedrock of the planet’s food production system were developed, discovered and designed within those constraints,” the WEF’s Sean Fleming said in a blog post. “These, and other critical systems, cannot be expected to function normally outside the environmental niche they grew up in.”

What this CNBC article is considering is the utter worst case scenario of the study, which is the normal for the “unbiased” media.

According to the scientific study, by 2070 the average person will be living in temperatures 7.5 degrees Celsius hotter than pre-industrial times if climate change goes unchecked, with Africa, South America and Australasia particularly at risk. Extreme weather events could mean droughts, floods, famine and disease became the norm, the researchers warned.

We’ve only seen an increase of .8 to .9 Celsius since 1850, and they say over 6C in 50 years? Lunatics.

    • Fake News = The False Prophet

      These Climate Change people need to face criminal charges and they well may, and in the not too distant future.
      It’s not just symbolism that gives them away, it’s their lies which are becoming increasingly easy to see through.
      One big club, and luckily we ain’t in it.
