Climate conditions in much of the Persion Gulf/Arabian Peninsula area will often push past the limits of human adaptability by the end of this century under current greenhouse gas pollution trends, according to a new report in Nature Climate Change. These maps from the report chart temperature (T) and temperature plus humidity (TW) currently (HIST), under a future scenario of some controls on greenhouse gas emissions (RCP4.5), and under the "business as usual" scenario of no change from current emissions trends (RCP8.5).
