From construction workers in Dubai to farmers in India, workers around the world are suffering from excessive heat fueled by climate change. The heat is leading to huge productivity losses and mounting economic strain for many countries, according to research published this week ahead of a United Nations forum.

The study builds on research detailing how extreme heat in some places prevents employees from working during the hottest hours of the day.

That lost work time translates into significant hits on the gross domestic product in nations across the globe, and it is a problem that could deepen as the Earth continues to warm.
