Persistent high temperatures in combination with high relative humidity can be fatal to both human beings and animals. The temperature of this planet will continue to rise unless we do something about reducing the emission of greenhouse gases. Of late, the number of deaths due to heat strokes are on the rise. Also, the sudden rise in global temperatures has led to an increase in the population of insects and other pests. Many insects act as vectors for many pathogenic organisms. As a result, there has been a drastic rise in many infections like malaria, etc.
