Study blames climate change for 37% of global heat deaths

by Seth Borenstein/AP News

More than one-third of the world’s heat deaths each year are due directly to global warming, according to the latest study to calculate the human cost of climate change.

But scientists say that’s only a sliver of climate’s overall toll — even more people die from other extreme weather amplified by global warming such as storms, flooding and drought — and the heat death numbers will grow exponentially with rising temperatures.



Dozens of researchers who looked at heat deaths in 732 cities around the globe from 1991 to 2018 calculated that 37% were caused by higher temperatures from human-caused warming, according to a study Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change.

That amounts to about 9,700 people a year from just those cities, but it is much more worldwide, the study’s lead author said.

“These are deaths related to heat that actually can be prevented. It is something we directly cause,” said Ana Vicedo-Cabrera, an epidemiologist at the Institute of Social and Preventative Medicine at the University of Bern in Switzerland.

  1. If you live in an area subject to floods and droughts, you have a soil fertility problem. It makes more sense, however, to treat the symptoms and make the money.

  2. In light of Jeff Smiths admonition of hurricanes brought to NY City to remove 911 residual radiation; we have more evidence that folks believe global warming is man made.

  3. Give Corbyn’s research a little time. At Weatheractiondotcom

    He uses data from the IPCC sources in his analyses.

    My thoughts are we need to get free of the fear “public relations” aimed at our children.
