The climate changes and so the risk of injury, illness, and death from the heat waves, wildfires, storms and floods rises.
If high temperatures, combined with high humidity, persist for several and nighttime temperatures do not drop, extreme heat can kill. .
Expected changes in temperature and precipitation are likely to lead to other effects for human health and safety,e.g. drought, which can be the reason for forest fires. On the other hand, a warming atmosphere holds more moisture, so the chance of extreme rainfall and floods continues to rise in some regions. Sea-level rise is more likely to expose people to storm surges; coastal floods and freak waves.
Three key factors —sunlight, warm air and pollution from power plants and cars – produce ground-level ozone or the so called smog, which means poor air quality. Higher air temperatures increase smog and this is the re
