Study reveals global heat-related deaths are set to quadruple

# A recent study by The Lancet Countdown warns that global heat-related deaths are projected to surge by 370-percent if global warming is not adequately controlled. The study specifically highlights the risks associated with rising temperatures and extreme weather events, which contribute to health threats and food insecurity. The research indicates that nearly 525-million people globally could face food insecurity due to the impacts of global warming and that nearly half of American deaths from air pollution are due to the burning of fossil fuels.
