Temperature rises, men ... die more than women?

Hotter temperatures make men swim, drive and drink more alcohol, leading to a higher risk of death from drowning and traffic accidents, according to new research.

The research was conducted by British and American scientists and just published on 13 January.

By 2 degrees Celsius, more than 2,000 Americans die every year

Death from injury is defined as a car accident, a fall, a drowning, or a deliberate fight or suicide.

In a study published in Nature Medicine , the authors reported that they found a clear link between the risk of death from injury and the increase in temperature due to climate change.

Accordingly, when studying the number of accidental deaths in each state in the US each year from 1980-2017, they found that injury-related deaths tend to increase during warmer months, especially in populous southern states like California, Texas and Florida.

According to AFP research summary, the majority of deaths occur in men aged 15-34, who die from drowning, road traffic accidents.

Majid Ezzati, a professor at Imperial College London and co-author of the paper, said: "This result shows that climate change has a big impact on young people. We need to respond to threats. This, better prepare emergency services, social support and health warnings. "

An analysis of the group's National Center for Health Statistics found that from 1980 to 2017, 4.1 million boys and men died from injuries compared to 1.8 million girls and women.

Hotter temperatures increase the risk of death from drowning and traffic accidents due to people swimming, driving and drinking alcohol more.

The authors used a statistical model to predict the increase in deaths of any given year on the basis of an increase in the Earth's temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius or 2 degrees Celsius - the milestones that countries agreed on. will be geared towards the Paris Agreement 2015.

Accordingly, the increase of 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels will increase 1,600 deaths each year, and an increase of 2 degrees Celsius will increase about 2,100 deaths or more each year.

What happens when the Earth gets an extra 1.5 - 2 degrees Celsius?

With an increase of 1 degree C from pre-industrial times to date, the earth has experienced a series of climate disasters, thousands of deaths and millions of people must migrate every year.

The difference between 1.5 degrees Celsius and 2 degrees Celsius can have devastating consequences for the earth. A new study in the journal Earth System Dynamics compares the difference between the two numbers, the difference of 0.5 degrees Celsius is huge.

In specific places, a 2 degree C increase is much worse than a 1.5 degree increase. In the Mediterranean region, the amount of available fresh water will drop sharply by 17% as global temperatures rise. add 2 degrees C. With an increase of 1.5 degrees C, the amount of fresh water will only decrease by 9%.

With West Africa, Southeast Asia, Central and South America, when the temperature increases by 2 degrees Celsius, the production of rice and corn will decrease significantly.

At a 2 degree C increase, the sea level will rise 2 cm higher than the increase of 1.5 degrees C.

If global temperatures rise by 1.5 degrees Celsius, by 2050, 90 percent of current coral reefs will fall to 70 percent by 2100. If global temperatures rise by 2 degrees Celsius, nearly the entire reef The present will be at risk of being wiped out.

  • The danger is when the temperature rises
  • What will mankind be when the earth's temperature rises by 4 degrees Celsius?
