Limitations to thermoregulation and acclimatisation challenges human adaptation to global warming

Hanna, Elizabeth; Tait, Peter

Description

Human thermoregulation and acclimatization are core components of the human coping mechanism for withstanding variations in environmental heat exposure. Amidst growing recognition that curtailing global warming to less than two degrees is becoming increasing improbable, human survival will require increasing reliance on these mechanisms. The projected several fold increase in extreme heat events suggests we need to recalibrate health protection policies and ratchet up adaptation efforts....[Show more]
