Heat-related deaths likely to increase significantly as global temperatures rise, warn researchers: Models show that the implementation of the Paris Agreement is critical to avoid a large increase in
Led by researchers at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), this is the first study that evaluates global temperature-related health impacts under scenarios consistent with the Agreement. These projections took into account how an increase in heat-related deaths might be offset against a decrease in deaths due to cold, as global temperatures rise. The team at LSHTM first analyzed historical data on temperature-related deaths from 451 locations in 23 countries with different socio-economic and climatic conditions.
