Roundtables are where we get to hear from multiple experts on either a subject matter or a recently published book. These collections of essays allow for detailed debates and discussions from a variety of viewpoints so that we can deeply explore a given topic or book. In this roundtable, our contributors examine the rising tensions between Pakistan and India and look at what the future might hold for the region. The truth is that the jungle is neutral. It provides any amount of fresh water, and unlimited cover for friend as well as foe—an armed neutrality, if you like, but neutrality nevertheless.
It is the attitude of mind that determines whether you go under or survive. Image courtesy of the authors.

The combination of humidity and extreme heat creates a "wet bulb temperature" effect which, above a certain level, can cause fatal overheating. He specialises in health, a subject on which he writes for the British Medical Journal and others. This ominous scenario, posited in one of 6, papers referenced in the latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, warrants only a single line and is easily missed.
The IPCC report highlights a series of climate-change consequences that could be avoided if global warming were limited to 1.
One of the key messages is that the world is already seeing the results of 1 degree of global warming, in more extreme weather, rising sea levels and diminishing Arctic sea ice. While limiting warming to 1.
Goans away from Goa. Migration to the Middle East
The bad news for the Middle East and North Africa is that, even if it proves possible to limit warming to 1. The Middle East is already more vulnerable to climate change than most regions because of limited water supplies and long summers that are already very hot. Rising temperatures will only reduce the availability of water, stoking tensions already straining relations between neighbouring states.

The Tigris and Euphrates rivers, which once watered the flowering of civilisation in ancient Mesopotamia, rise in the Armenian Highlands. Facing the rising threat of desertification, Turkey is increasingly diverting water from these rivers for its own agricultural needs and depriving its southern neighbour, Iraq, of supplies. Downstream in the southern Iraqi city of Basra, lack of fresh water has already led to a public health crisis and violent protests this year, raising the spectre of a future blighted by water wars.
But social upheaval on the grandest of scales could also be on the cards, according to the paper cited by the IPCC report and published in the journal Nature Climate Change in The body adapts to increases in environmental temperature through perspiration and subsequent evaporative cooling. As anyone who has waited in vain for a taxi in Abu Dhabi knows, extreme heat plus the proximity of a large body of water — such as the Gulf — equals high humidity, which prevents the body from regulating its internal temperature through evaporation.
