Climate Change Daily Vid August 7, 2017: Europe's heat wave and climate change: A sign of things to come?


Europe's death toll from extreme weather could rise to more than 150,000 people a year by 2100 if nothing is done to curb the effects of climate change, study says

"Unless global warming is curbed as a matter of urgency and appropriate measures are taken, about 350 million Europeans could be exposed to harmful climate extremes on an annual basis by the end of the century."
