  • By the Middle of the 21st Century the Middle East and Africa will be too Hot for Humans

It has been estimated by climate scientists that by the middle of the 21st century the Middle East and Africa will simply be too hot for humans.

The mean temperatures will shoot up in parts of the Middle East and Africa as this century progresses. Human beings will find it hard to inhabit these regions by the middle of the 21st century.

Since over 500 million people inhabit these regions, there will be mass migrations to foreign countries. The new climate studies paint a dismal picture of the temperature scenario around these regions. In fact, the statistics are frightening to say the least. 

Even were the global temperatures to go up by a mere 2 degrees Celsius, still the summer heat in the Middle East and Africa would double leading to an inhospitable environment. No one would be able to survive such extremes of temperature.

The heat waves, drought-like conditions which would be inimical to crop health and sandstorms will ravage the regions.  The results will be obvious. Mass migrations and a virtual exodus from the areas will occur in a hurry which could prove problematic. 

By 2050 night time temperatures in the regions will reach 30 degrees Celsius, according to Gizmodo. During the daytime, they will be approximately 46 degrees Celsius. As for the end of the 21st century, it will be a very dire situation that will prevail throughout the Middle East and Africa.

The noon temperatures would be 50 degrees Celsius. As for the heat waves, they will become more and more frequent in their visitations. This will be like hell on earth.

It will first be very hot for 80 days per year. Then it will progress to 118 days of extreme heat per yearly basis. This is a disaster in the making.   

Already desert dustiness is on the rise around regions such as Saudi Arabia, Iraq and Syria. With changes in the general climate of these loci, life will be a difficult proposal.

Living conditions will become intolerable. Thus the urge to find colder regions will become paramount. A mass exodus will most likely take place. With this will arise the problems of national boundaries and the bylaws of immigration.

All in all, the mean temperature of the earth will skyrocket to 4 degrees Celsius. It is already so hot in the Middle East and Africa during the summer months. With this rise in mean temperature, there will be pandemonium and conditions of chaos in these regions.
