People living near the Persian Gulf are used to sweltering temperatures, but the thermometer could swing from uncomfortable to dangerous relatively soon.
A new study from the journal Nature Climate Change predicts rising temperatures could make some parts of the region unlivable by the year 2100.
The study warns the heat index, a combination of heat and humidity, could shoot up to nearly 170 degrees Fahrenheit in some parts, which is about as much heat as the human body can take.
