Global Warming – New Study Calls for Decisive Action
Swiss TPH The largest global study to date on the effects of climate change on temperature-related mortality shows that more deaths due to hot weather may not be balanced by fewer deaths in colder world regions should global temperatures continue to rise. Swiss TPH, working for improved health of the people around the globe, prepared the data set for Switzerland.
The paper entitled “Projections of temperature-related excess mortality under climate change scenarios”, published in The Lancet Planetary Health by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), compared heat- and cold-related mortality across 451 locations in nine regions and 23 countries, Switzerland being one of them.
