In the future, people can boil alive, as "boiling frog"

People are perfectly adapted to the global warming of air in the world, and this has been proven by researchers at the University of California at Davis. They found that because of the slowness of the process of people simply do not notice major changes and get used to the ever-rising temperatures. At first glance, this may seem like a good news, but in fact it is very scary - researchers believe that at some point people may simply boil to death without seeing the formation of an extremely dangerous and hot climate.

In the XIX century was invented by scientists of the theory, called the "boiling frog". They were sure that the frog, throw in a container is gradually heated and boiling water will not notice the change in temperature and simply cooked, and did not understand what happened. Despite the fact that this theory has been disproved by modern researchers believe that in the future people can wait for the very fate of the frog of the original experiment.

From 2014 to 2016 a team of researchers led by Professor Francis Moore studied billions of messages in the Twitter service. They paid attention to the geographical location of users, responses to weather reports and up to date at that time information about its condition. To find out how people relate to the increase in temperature is now collected data were compared with the temperatures in the 1981-1990-ies. It turned out that most people respond to unusual weather conditions for the season: for example, on a warm winter and cool summer. However, this reaction is quickly forgotten, and within five years, people start to perceive warm winters and other anomalous phenomena as something normal.

It really looks like a syndrome of "boiling frog". People started to get used to the changes that they really want to prevent.

This fact is very alarmed by the researchers, but they believe that in the future, even the weather will have an effect. Most likely, people will notice changes with a sharp increase in the number of forest fires, droughts and storms. Such disasters can in the strongest possible terms to remind people about the state of the planet, and they urgently need to take something.
