A recent study conducted by the University of Bristol has identified regions across the world that are at high risk of severe heatwaves and their devastating effects. The research, published in Nature Communications, highlights that regions such as Afghanistan, Papua New Guinea, Central America, Beijing, and Central Europe are particularly vulnerable due to a combination of unprecedented heat extremes and socioeconomic factors. The study emphasizes that countries that have not yet experienced intense heatwaves are especially susceptible as they often lack adequate adaptation measures. The researchers call on policymakers in these hotspots to implement action plans to reduce the risks and protect lives from climate extremes.

Microplastics are small particles that are < 5mm (0.2 inches) in diameter. They are of 2 types: primary and secondary. Primary microplastics are used in cosmetics, cleansers, etc. Secondary microplastics are obtained vy breaking down larger plastic items, such as water bottles. Microplastic contamination and its danger to ecosystems and human health have become a […]
