The effects of climate change may extend further than melting glaciers and rising sea levels, according to a new study which says that hot temperatures may cause up to 30 percent of airplanes to be grounded in coming decades.

The study, published in the journal Climatic Change, says that 10 to 30 percent of fully loaded airplanes may at some point be forced to adapt during the hottest part of the day.

Those adaptations include removing fuel, cargo, or passengers, or waiting for cooler hours to fly.
