How much heat can a human endure ?

Just mentioned this slightly related observation to a friend over lunch the other day...

 

I put a rack of ribs in the slow cooker @ 220 degrees for six hours and the meat slides off the bone.

Meanwhile, the ribs in my body, have spent 50-ish years @ 99 degrees and... no slidey.

My air conditioner is out. I’m getting close.

With heatwaves seeing temperature records being broken on a regular basis, just how hot is too hot ?

When the wet bulb temperature reaches 95F, the human body can no longer cool itself.  At that point, heat stroke and death is inevitable unless the person can be cooled down immediately.

Wet bulb temperature can be determined by wrapping a piece of cloth around a thermometer, dipping it in water and swinging it through the air until the temperature stabilizes.

By the time this condition exists, environmental damage will already have made survival dubious.

Not as much as sleeping with Emilia Clarke or Rihanna with touching prohibited.
