Few places would be unaffected by extreme heat conditions by mid century and only a few mountainous regions would remain extreme heat refuges by the century's end. Without global action to reduce heat trapping emissions, the number of days per year when the heat index, or "feels like" temperature exceeds 100 degrees Fahrenheit would more than double from historical levels to an average of 36 across the country by mid century and increase four-fold to an average of 54 by late century. The average number of days per year nationwide with a heat index above 105 degrees Fahrenheit would more than quadruple to 24 by mid century and increase eight fold to 40 by late century. The analysis, titled "Killer Heat in the United States: Climate Choices and the Future of Dangerously Hot Days" shows a hotter future that's hard to imagine today. Nearly everywhere, people will experience more days of dangerous heat even in the next few decades.
