Scientists are predicting that by 2100, parts of South and Southeast Asia will be too hot for humans to survive in. A deadly heat wave in India in 2015 killed 3 500 people, and if climate change continues, it will only get worse. In a recent interview on CBC’s The National, 2012 scholar Steven Hoffman described the potential impact. He remarks that there are 40 million people, more than the total population of Canada, who live in parts of India that will become uninhabitable and noted that, “it would be the Canadian equivalent of Canada freezing over, and no one being able to live there.”
