Study Hints Scorcher Summer in 2100
At the end of this century, summers in the U.S. cities are expected to be 7-10° F warmer on an average between June-August, according to a new analysis conducted by Climate Central, a research and journalism organization.
According to the analysis, if existing trends in gas emissions persist, the projected temperatures are likely to be seen in 1,001 cities in the U.S.
"Summer temperatures in most American cities are going to feel like summers now in Texas and Florida - very, very hot," lead researcher Alyson Kenward said in a statement.
The research also underscored that Boston is going to be as sweltering as it is in today in North Miami Beach, pointing that the average temperature for summer most likely will be over 10°F hotter than it is now.
"Summers across the country are going to get considerably hotter, particularly if our greenhouse gas emissions continue to grow at the rate they are," said Bernadette Woods Placky, who is a meteorologist and program director of Climate Matters project by Climate Central, in a statement.
