Analyzing the Rising Costs of Climate Change to Human Health
This figure appears in chapter 2 of the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Year 2017 report.
This figure depicts the projected increase in deaths due to warming in the summer months (hot season, April–September), the projected decrease in deaths due to warming in the winter months (cold season, October–March), and the projected net change in deaths compared to a 1990 baseline period for 209 U.S. cities, using the GFDL–CM3 and MIROC5 climate models. Both models project a net increase in deaths. (Source: USGCRP, adapted from Schwartz et al. 2015)
