During the Chicago heat wave of 1995, the mercury spiked above 41°C and about 600 people died. In a few decades, people will look back at those heat waves “and we will laugh”, said Andreas Sterl, author of a new study. “We will find (those temperatures) lovely and cool.” Sterl’s computer model shows by the end of the century, high temperatures for once-in-a-generation heat waves will rise twice as fast as everyday average temperatures. Chicago, for example, would reach 46°C in such an event by 2100. Paris could near 42.7°C with Lyon coming closer to 45.5°C . Sterl is with the Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute, projects temperatures for heat waves around the world. His numbers are blistering because of the drying-out effect...(More)
