It depends on where. As of 2003, more people died from cold than from heat in the Northern Hemisphere, but in the developing world, heat killed more people. Between 1999 and 2003, around 688 people in the United States died because of heat each year. Climate experts have warned that heat-related deaths will increase, and by the end of the century, the number of deaths due to heat could quadruple in London and other cities, such as Sydney, Lisbon, Budapest, Boston, and Dallas. In London, deaths due to heat are expected to fall from 60,000 to 20,000 if global warming increases the Earth’s temperature by about 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit by 2050. The number of heat-related deaths in London is expected to be around 3,000, which is still much less than deaths due to cold temperatures.
