A newly published scientific paper indicates that occupational safety and daily day performance in 7 out of 10 workers, from several European industries, is negatively affected by a combination of heat stress and failure to maintain water balance. The study combines field observations and motor-cognitive testing in the lab, and was conducted by the Pan-European […]Continue Reading ...
After this summer’s recording-breaking heat-;118°F in Riverside, 109°F in Long Beach, 114°F in Burbank-; and massive wildfires, California residents are definitely ready for the cooler temperatures of autumn. But more than just keeping us comfortable, cool temperatures are critical to our health, says Lara Cushing, Ph.D., assistant professor of environmental epidemiology in the department of […]Continue Reading ...
WEDNESDAY, Aug. 15, 2018 — This year’s record-breaking worldwide heat wave is likely a preview of coming attractions, scientists say. Using a new method for predicting global temperatures, researchers concluded that 2018-2022 may be even hotter than expected. While global warming appeared to have eased early in the 21st century, the new forecasting method points […]Continue Reading ...
