Description


A new study projects heat-related deaths will rise in Manhattan. Researchers say deaths linked to warming climate may rise 20 percent by the 2020′s and 90 percent or more by the 2080′s. The study was done by a team at Columbia University’s Earth Institute. One of the authors of this study, Dr. Radley Horton, a climate scientist at Columbia, says people need look no further for the potential dangers than the record 2010 heat wave that hit Russia, killing some 55,000 people.
