Climate model projects 7.4 Million lives could be saved by 2100 — ‘if the US acts now on climate’
Via UK Guardian: Researchers have now calculated how many people could be saved from heat-related death if the US takes meaningful action: For the first time, researchers have calculated exactly how many people the US could save by acting on the climate crisis. A total of 7.4 million lives around the world will be saved over this century if the US manages to cut its emissions to net zero by 2050, according to the analysis.
The lab’s new “lives saved calculator” uses a model of historical death records and localized temperature projections to come up with an estimate for the number of lives saved if emissions are eliminated. The analysis just looks at lives at risk from extreme heat, meaning the true climate toll would be higher due to other growing threats such as flooding and strong storms.
Climate models project “Left unchecked, by the end of the century, climate change-driven heatwaves could become a leading cause of death.”

After 100 years of climate change, ‘climate-related deaths’ approach zero – Dropped by over 99% since 1920
Meteorologist Anthony Watts: “New data shows the global climate-related death risk has dropped by over 99% since 1920. Despite the near constant caterwauling from climate alarmists that we are in a “climate emergency”, real-world data, release at the end of 2020 shows that climate related deaths are now approaching zero. The data spans 100 years of “global warming” back to 1920 and shows “climate related” deaths now approaching zero.
