. Study blames climate change for 37% of the world’s heat deaths: “It is something we directly cause” « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CBS – 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 patterns amplified by climate change, such as storms and drought.

“People continue to ask for proof that climate change is already affecting our health. This attribution study directly answers that question using state-of-the-science epidemiological methods,” said Dr. Jonathan Patz, director of the Global Health Institute at the University of Wisconsin.
