Watch: Climate change increasing wet bulb temperature harming human health

We usually consider the dry-bulb temperature to describe how hot or cold a place is. Scientists, however, have been stressing upon taking into account humidity and other factors to assess how weather conditions will affect human health and activity. Humidity is measured as wet-bulb temperature. Factoring in the humidity along with the heat, called the heat index, helps us determine what the temperature actually ‘feels like’. Currently, one phenomenon is severely testing the human tolerance of this heat-humidity balance. Climate Change!
