A recent study led by researchers from the EARLY-ADAPT group and INSERM indicates in what Spanish provinces the cold poses the greatest risk to health.
Air Conditioning Has Reduced Mortality Due to High Temperatures in Spain by One Third. Similarly, heating has reduced by up to half the deaths related to extreme cold, although this effect may be attenuated by an ageing population, according to a study spanning four decades and 48 provinces in Spain
New study by EARLY-ADAPT researchers develops theoretical framework to re-evaluate initial estimates of mortality attributable to record summer temperatures in 2022.
A study developed by EARLY-ADAPT researchers analyses the association between ambient temperature and hospital mortality from respiratory diseases in the provinces of Madrid and Barcelona.
An epidemiological analysis by EARLY-ADAPT researchers published in Nature Medicine estimates that 63% more women than men died due to heat, with the highest incidence in the Mediterranean region.
A new study co-authored by a researcher from the EARLY-ADAPT group estimates that one third of deaths attributable to heat islands could be avoided if trees covered 30% of urban space.
The first Lancet Countdown in Europe report shows how climate change impacts public health in European countries
Four scientists from the EARLY-ADAPT group are among the 44 leading researchers that make up the Lancet Countdown in Europe initiative.
A study of the correlation between temperature and mortality in the Indian city of Pune has found that cold, rather than heat, is by far the bigger killer.
Urgent need for policies addressing rising temperatures to mitigate the temperature-attributable mortality related to climate change
In this study we have studied the effects of rising temperatures on mortality in Europe according to three climate change scenarios. Depending on the scenario, total attributable mortality will increase notably due to the great increase of heat attributable mortality that will outweigh the reduction in cold attributable mortality. This increase in mortality attributable to temperatures will be more notorious in regions more exposed and vulnerable to heat.
Without Strong Mitigation Measures, Climate Change Will Increase Temperature-Attributable Mortality in Europe
If global warming is not curbed, the increase in heat-related deaths will outstrip the decline in cold-related mortality, especially in the Mediterranean Basin.
