Humidity and Climate change

May 29, 2019

In an effort to provide more climate-related information, data, and tools, we created the Humidity Group. It provides access to comprehensive global, regional, and country data related to climate change and development.  Humidity, or the amount of moisture in the air, can make the temperature feel warmer, as our sweat is slower to evaporate. Not only is the muggy air uncomfortable, but it can cause our bodies to overheat, exhaust easily, and poses a potential danger to our health. High humidity can have an adverse effect on the human body. Because the air feels warmer than the official, recorded temperature, it can contribute to feelings of low energy and lethargy. The effects might have a serious impact on the population with a severe health condition.
The successful integration of scientific information in decision making often depends on the use of flexible frameworks, data, and tools that can provide relevant data to a wide range of users. This data allows the users to evaluate how to apply the information in designing a new solution, project, or policy.
