Climate change is projected to significantly impact the number of extreme heat days per month. As global temperatures continue to rise, the frequency and intensity of heat waves will likely increase, leading to more extreme heat days throughout the year. Extreme heat days, generally with temperatures significantly above average, can cause severe implications for human health and the environment. These days can lead to heat-related illnesses and cause strain on energy resources and natural habitats. With climate change, the number of extreme heat days per month is projected to rise, posing a greater risk of heat-related illnesses and likely overwhelming healthcare systems. In urban areas, the heat island effect can exacerbate the impact of extreme heat days, causing cities to be hotter than surrounding rural areas. This can lead to increased energy usage for cooling and higher levels of air pollution. In summary, as climate change worsens, it is crucial to prepare for the increasing number of extreme heat days per month and take action to mitigate impacts on human health and the environment.
