Los Angeles County will experience triple the number of hot days per year by 2053, according to a new study.
The county, where a typical hot day is just under 94 degrees, gets about seven days that exceed that per year, according to the report released this week by the First Street Foundation, a nonprofit, climate-focused research organization based in New York. By 2053, that number will jump to 21, the study found.
Los Angeles County is up there with Del Norte and Orange counties as the areas in California that will see the most severe jump in hot days. The increase will result in freak infrastructure accidents and cost the state more than half a billion dollars in air conditioning consumption.
“The results will be dire,” First Street Chief Executive Matthew Eby said about the rise in severely hot days across the country.
