Australia's third-largest capital will be a & # 39; difficult place to live & # 39; due to extreme heat, according to an alarming report.
Dr. Sarah Chapman & # 39; s four-year study on the climate in Brisbane, published in the International Journal of Climatology, said more people are at risk of disease and death and that & # 39; this is not the path we want are & # 39 ;.
& # 39; What we find unusual in the current time will become normal in the future & # 39 ;, she said ABC.

Dr. Chapman said that more people are at risk of disease and death and that & # 39; this is not the path we want to be on & # 39; (stock)
& # 39; This means that outdoor work and sports must be limited, even in shady conditions, otherwise there is a high risk of disease. & # 39;
The study investigated how temperature rises would affect people's ability to work and play outside.
Dr. Chapman said that it would not only be the young and the elderly who would be affected, but also healthy adults.
Climate change is considered the biggest factor, with Dr. Chapman saying that there is still time to address these issues as long as we move & # 39; very fast & # 39; and be serious about it.
& # 39; The way Brisbane is developing in the future can also alleviate or even exacerbate some of the impact & # 39 ;, she told the publication.
She advised to stop getting rid of green spaces in the city and the surrounding areas, because this causes temperature increases (stock)
She advised not to lose any greenery in the city and the surrounding areas.
Her research into another study showed that, regardless of any action on climate change, temperatures will continue to rise.
She called on politicians to do more, especially since Australia last year recorded the most popular record year summer.
