You need to dig a little (read) to find this nugget in this article:
Deaths from heatwaves were projected to increase by 5,400 percent, coastal foods by 3,780 percent, wildfires by 138 percent, river floods by 54 percent and windstorms by 20 percent. European heatwave deaths could skyrocket: climate study
Heatwaves are expected to do the worst damage, jumping from 11 people per million currently to about 700 per million.
I suspect they’ve seriously underestimated most of the figures (again) because they’re simply not projecting the real temperature rise (they’ve assumed a 3°C rise, which is still too low). Nothing was mentioned about wet-bulb temperature deaths / crop losses / famine either, which even at their lower estimates, would still occur in large parts of the world. They did mention rising carbon dioxide levels will dramatically cut the amount of protein in stable crops like rice and wheat in the decades to come. Ahem… it’s a bigger problem then just protein.
In any case, this is pretty bad. Using their lower estimates, there will still be 351 million people exposed per year, up from 25 million. That’s a big jump.
Oddly, they only mention human adaption through better insulation of homes – no consideration seems to be included for what happens to farmland, crops, livestock and other food produced. Or how such temperatures would accelerate biosphere death (plants, marine life) through warming oceans, plankton die-off, anoxic events and so forth. And, as usual, there is the ridiculous Paris Agreement comments, which are pretty much boilerplate “snooze” these daze for climate reporting.
I have to say it – it’s as if climate science is (still) running around with blinders on and disbelieving their own results (and unaware of everybody else’s too). They’re STILL playing catch-up to reality.
