"A new study published in the British medical journal, The Lancet,
concludes we’re 20 more times likely to die from cold than heat.
It says this has “important implications ... for predictions of future effect in climate-change scenarios.”
The researchers, including Canadian scientists, compiled data on more
than 74 million deaths in 384 locations across 13 countries from 1985
to 2012, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Italy, Japan, South
Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, the U.K. and the U.S.
They found 7.71% of all deaths were due to “sub-optimal” hot and cold
temperatures, but with cold responsible for the vast majority — 7.29%
compared to 0.42% for heat.
The study also found most deaths don’t occur during extreme
temperatures, but when they are slightly above or below normal, although
again, 6.66% of all deaths were related to moderate cold compared to
less than 1% for moderate heat."[--]" a warming world could mean fewer temperature-related deaths, not more.
All of this runs contrary to the constant barrage of hysterical propaganda from climate warm mongers.
That would include Al Gore, whose Academy Award-winning documentary
An Inconvenient Truth incorrectly depicted global warming (aka climate
change) as a never ending, planet-wide, relentless assault of rapidly
rising temperatures, stronger hurricanes, deadly heat waves and
unrelenting droughts happening everywhere at once.
