The impact of environmental issues on human health, infrastructure, and the economy is becoming increasingly evident as global temperatures continue to rise due to climate change. While there are many sources of environmental issues, heat is one that can have significant and immediate impacts on human health and wellbeing. Heatwaves can lead to heat exhaustion, heatstroke, and dehydration, particularly affecting vulnerable populations such as the elderly, children, and those with pre-existing medical conditions. Moreover, heatwaves can also affect infrastructure and the economy, leading to power grid overloads, blackouts, and disruptions in agricultural productivity. To mitigate the impacts of heatwaves and address the underlying causes of climate change, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, reducing pollution, preserving natural resources, adapting to climate change, and promoting education and awareness are all essential solutions that require collective efforts.
