How Will it Affect Temperatures?

Climate change is going to mean longer and more intense heat waves for certain parts of the world. This will result in an increase in heat-related illness, particularly among the elderly, children, and those with chronic illness, and heat-related deaths could increase in large urban areas.

Heat is also a major contributor to air pollution and smog in major urban areas, and smog alerts are common whenever the temperature rises. This creates additional health risks from asthma and respiratory illness – and, again, it’s the elderly and children who are most vulnerable.
