Climate Change May Render One of the World’s Largest Oil Producers Too Hot to Live in

Climate Change May Render One of the World’s Largest Oil Producers Too Hot to Live in

The Index Today

One of the world’s most affluent oil producers can potentially become uninhabitable spurred on by climate change.

According to the Environment Public Authority, Kuwait can possibly become too hot to live in with temperatures expected to rise by 4.5 degrees from 2071 to 2100. In 2016, Kuwait recorded a temperature of 54 degrees which is reportedly the highest the world has ever seen for the past 76 years.

The spike in temperature is also adversely impacting the flora and fauna in the country with dead birds become a common sight during the summer months. Tamara Qabazard, a Kuwait-based zoo and wildlife veterinary specialist, says, “This is why we are seeing less and less wildlife in Kuwait, it's because most of them aren't making it through the seasons.”

Experts have blamed political torpor in the country even as other OPEC+ nations are scrambling to combat the rising concern of climate change. Still, some notable younger Kuwaitis are taking the lead in urging their fellow citizens to do their part in reducing carbon footprint by adopting a more eco-friendly lifestyle that, for example, involves eschewing cars for public transport which is a marked shift from the country’s status quo.
