Seasonal cycles enhance disparities between low- and high-income countries in exposure to monthly temperature emergence with future warming

A common proxy for the adaptive capacity of a community to the impacts of future climate change is the range of climate variability which they have experienced in the recent past. This study presents an interpretation of such a framework for monthly temperatures. Our results demonstrate that emergence into genuinely 'unfamiliar' climates will occur across nearly all months of the year for low-income nations by the second half of the 21st Century under an RCP8.5 warming scenario.
