How Are Vegetation and Temperature Correlated

Warming of the earth's atmosphere has been a topic of debate for a long time. Is it natural or anthropogenic? Scientists think that there may be a correlation between vegetation and earth’s temperature.

Rising Wet-Bulb Temperature: The Metric For An Overheated Planet and Its Fatal Effects On Humans

Wet bulb temperature is simply the lowest temperature that the human body can cool down to after evaporating all the moisture that its surroundings allow it to. The lower it is, the more easily the human body can cool itself down through perspiration; when high it can lead to various issues including death in extreme cases.

Climate change has begun to suffocate the world’s fisheries

The ocean water holds oxygen which is vital for marine life. Due to rise in the temperature of water, it is becoming deoxygenated, which means its ability to hold oxygen has decreased. which could potentially result in ocean water becoming less habitable for marine life. The depths of 200mts to 1000mts called mesopelagic zone will be the most affected part as per a report.
