Unless action is taken to reduce the core body temperature of the patient to the normal 98.6 º F the current fever at a temperature of 100.1 º F (1.5 º F above) will continue to rise to where the patient reaches 104 º F (5.4 º F above normal) resulting in the condition more commonly know as sunstroke or heat stroke.
This is a medical emergency condition requiring hospitalisation and local emergency services should be notified as soon as possible. In humans, brain death begins at 106 º F (or 7.4 º F above normal) and at 113 º F (or14.4 º F above) death is nearly certain. Internal body temperatures in humans above 122 º F (or 23.4 º F above) will cause rigidity in the patients muscles and certain, immediate death.
Everywhere in the world this fever is evident with an increase in temperature of 1.5 º F above those of a healthy earth patient and in some regions (in Northern latitudes) the fever is approaching the heat stock level moving at three times the global average. An observed rise in some northern latitudes has been documented of between 3 º and 4 º above what is considered normal in the mid latitudes. These northern localities need emergency attention to return them to the safe level as they are already experiencing heat stroke symptoms. For the human species unless this action is taken without delay and temperatures are immediately reduced the symptoms of heat stroke are that they may become confused, then hostile before becoming unconscious and falling into a coma, with death almost certain to be the outcome.
This is an immediate global emergency to reduce the loss of life across the world, with all at immediate risk, this special patient's confidentially and documented records have been waived with its full consent.
Earth's recorded Medical history:
Current global considerations and discussions are that patient Earth's temperature should be restricted to go no higher than a further 3.6 º F which would take it to 4.83 º F above the normal and documented 'safe' level. This would clearly place all those in the mid latitudes currently experiencing fever conditions of 1.33 º F above the safe level of recent history into the same category of the northern latitudes, which are now approaching heat stroke levels. It is clear that this treatment regime of patient would cause its death. In so doing, patient Earth's death would inevitably lead to the extinction of the human race.
It is at this time unclear as to how patient Earth will respond to the pollution of its environment over the safe and stable level experienced when it was at 350ppm of contamination in the atmosphere and at a stable temperature for human habitation of 13.67 º F. At this time patient Earth's contamination level has reached 390ppm and a fever state of 1.33 º F in global average terms with contamination and temperatures rising daily.
Immediate treatment required:
Prudent treatment suggests that global action should be clearly focused on returning patient Earth to health and safety rather than allowing the current world fever to continue towards heat stoke and certain death.
Global citizen disclaimer:
For those in global discussions that are advocating that the patient be placed under observation and that the cause of its ill heath (greenhouse emissions) is allowed to continue upwards to 4.83 º F resulting into heat stroke leading to death, it is asserted by broad consensus that this approach is foolhardy in the extreme, with the only outcome being the patient's ultimate demise.
