Deaths from cold in Spain

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.


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.
