Verbrannte Erde [Burned Earth]

The warming of the planet is no longer an abstract phenomenon, the consequences are already noticeable: heat waves, floods, droughts. Many cities and metropolitan areas are now redirecting--just to ensure the survival of their inhabitants. This article published in Der Spiegel Magazine describes the global impacts of climate change in the Middle East, Brazil, India, and beyond. Around 200 million people live worldwide in 350 cities with temperatures of more than 35 degrees Celsius, the article notes, citing projections from the Lab's Impacts Map. In the next 30 years the number of affected cities, according to forecasts, almost triple. Der Spiegel also visualized the Lab's data.
