Dr. Jeremy S. Pal (of Loyola Marymount University) has written an article for “Nature Climate Change”, titled, “Future temperature in southwest Asia projected to exceed a threshold for human adaptability.”

In it, Mr.Pal said that the major Arabian cities such as Dhahran, Doha, Abu Dhabi, Bandar Abbas have the potential to surpass the livable threshold temperature by 2071.

Mr. Pal said: “These extreme temperatures are likely to become a normal summertime heatwave event by the end of the century if no progress on climate change is made.”

Norvergence also noted the details given by Zeke Hausfather (who is a climate data scientist) i.e. Day-by-Day, Qatar is becoming warmer because of greenhouse gas emissions. We have to do something, otherwise, heatwaves could get worst and living in Qatar could become almost impossible.
