Nature and Context

Compared to today’s rates, researchers estimate that extreme temperatures by the end of the century will cause an additional 9,300 extreme-temperature-related deaths per year across all 49 cities under a higher emissions pathway or an additional 3,900 deaths per year with a lower emissions pathway. Older residents, young children, low-income communities, and some communities of color face greater health risks due to extreme temperatures
