Heat-related deaths in Manhattan projected to rise

Researchers say deaths in Manhattan linked to warming climate may rise some 20 percent by the 2020s, and, in some worst-case scenarios, 90 percent or more by the 2080s. Higher winter temperatures may partially offset heat-related deaths by cutting cold-related mortality — but even so, annual net temperature-related deaths might go up a third.
