The Middle East is heating up at twice the global average, and Kuwait now regularly sees temperatures above 50C. Kuwait’s economy is dominated by fossil fuel exports but as the temperature rises more and more of Kuwait is becoming desert and it becomes harder to live with the extreme heat. With the mercury topping 53C, three Kuwaiti citizens – an influencer, a weather forecaster and a retired civil servant – raise the alarm with concerns about “how much longer we can consider Kuwait habitable”  They urge that Kuwait must not be allowed to get any hotter – and one of them has a solution to offer.

    Soon we will lose an entire city to heat stress and there will be an epiphany across the planet of people realizing this will soon be the fate of us all.
    Electrical grids weren’t designed to function at these extremes.
