Heat related deaths rising

How much has the population increased in the last two decades? I calculated 36%. That will account for most of the increase.


Has the average age of Australians increased over the last two decades? There are just too many variables to blame everything on climate change without considering everything.

If it wasn’t for AGW we would not see old people die except of old age and the diseases of old age. The tropics will be uninhabitable before all that much time has passed.

I don't believe it will be the topics that will be uninhabitable. I believe it will be the current temperate zones with ~16 hours of sunlight in the peak of summer.

Those seeking comfort in Tasmania might find summers too hot because of long summer days.

I remember days in Perth when it was ~30+ degrees at 6:30 in the morning as the day was heating after a hot night.

I worked in Canada on several occasions, and one engineer I knew who designed ventilation systems said he routinely doubled the size of the ventilation plant he designed because he had been caught out several times over the years when the plant he designed failed to cope with summer heatwaves.

Yeah, know what you said way back. Firstly, Tassie is not as far south as e.g. the Dakotas are north. Secondly—Tassie is a small island, lots of oceanic influence on the weather. Thirdly—most of Tassie is well above sea level and I am looking for some elevation. Fourthly, the tropics are much more humid than Tassie.
