#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. People sleep an average of 44 hours less per year due to global temperatures’ changes. This is reported by the New Atlas publication with reference to the largest foreign scientists’ research.
Scientists researched seven million sleep records from special bracelets of 47,000 adults from 68 countries. Researchers have found that global nighttime temperatures are rising faster than daytime temperatures and people around the world cannot adapt to this quickly so they begin to sleep less.
The research says that higher air temperatures disrupted sleep leading to the people’s sleep deprivation’s increase.
The scientists came to the conclusion that by the end of the century people can lose up to 58 sleep hours per year. Some populations will suffer most:
First of all people aged 65 will suffer from sleep deprivation (twice), residents of developing countries (three times). Women’s sleep time will be reduced more than men’s.
Earlier, we told that Average air temperature in Arctic rises.
