New Study Finds That Climate Change is Making Heat Waves More Deadly

A new study published in the journal Nature Climate Change has found that climate change is making heat waves more deadly. The study found that heat waves are now killing more people than ever before, and that this trend is likely to continue in the future.


The study looked at data on heat waves and deaths from around the world over the past 40 years. The researchers found that the number of heat wave-related deaths has increased significantly in recent years. They also found that this increase is correlated with rising global temperatures.


The researchers estimate that climate change is responsible for an additional 100,000 heat wave-related deaths each year. This number is expected to increase to 250,000 by the end of the century.


The study's findings are a stark reminder of the dangers of climate change. Heat waves are already a major public health threat, and climate change is making them even more deadly.
