Earlier it was reported that the number of deaths from heat will increase almost five times. This is the conclusion reached by scientists Monash University in Melbourne (Australia).
According to them, the reason will be anthropogenic climate change, which will lead to more frequent extreme weather events by 2080.
The study took into account the volume of emitted greenhouse gases by burning fossil fuels, the population density in the regions as well as different strategies to mitigate heat.
