Between now and 2065, climate change is projected to quadruple US outdoor workers' exposure to hazardous heat conditions, jeopardizing their health and placing up to $55.4 billion of their earnings at risk annually if no action is taken to reduce global warming emissions. Arizona currently has about 651,100 outdoor workers, who comprise approximately 22 percent of the state's total workforce. The UCS report finds that Maricopa, Pima and Pinal Counties would be hit hardest.
