Worst Case Scenario - Frostbite

Global warming could, paradoxically, lead to global freezing. Don’t panic! It’s just a theory. Though, it’s always useful to be well prepared for the worst case scenario. Below -15A° C (5A° F) blood vessels close to the skin start to narrow to help preserve the core body temperature. In extreme cold or when exposed to cold for long periods, this protective strategy can reduce blood flow in some areas of the body to dangerously low levels.
