So death rate in the US is highest in January at 9.7 per 1000 and lowest in July at 8.0 per 1000, netting out 46,000 more deaths in Jan. 2015 than July 2015. The death rate goes up as the seasons get colder and down as the seasons get warmer. That might lead some people to think that global warming is going to lead to net less deaths as most of the warming is supposed to occur in the winter and not in the summer?

Now Down-under in good old Aus deaths are highest in August and lowest in February, what could explain that?

Probably not temperature related
It doesnt get that cold and most people have air con

Heart disease is the main killer and that isnt weather related

Even before Wetbulb T Death, haven't you guys noticed how miserable it feels with high humidity? You feel when it's too cold and when it's too hot and, sometimes, you can feel too cold and too sweaty at the same time (the time I was in Tokyo)! Oh, I forgot, many Americans live with Air Conditioning most of the time under these conditions. I guess that's when the Seneca Cliff makes this important for first world countries. I like being outdoors, so I have a problem with this.

P, that link is very old now. We have had near 35 C wbt's already. We will certainly start seeing isolated places exceeding that deadly boundary within the next very few years, at least for short spans of time. We won't have to wait for 7 C above preindustrial global temps to start seeing wbt deaths.

And of course many, many elderly and those forced to work in near 35wbt conditions will be/have been dying before any actual 35Cwbt conditions are officially recorded.

Thousands of deaths are not even rounding errors in human population.

Sent from my summer retreat where the current 5:00pm temp is about 65°F. ;)

I just came from the beach. I have never seen the dune ecology so lush. Beautiful. Thank Gaia the California Death Drought is over :)

OMG we almost died, except that we didn't. Oh yeah, it's been 65 and sunny all day

7°C above average for many days if not weeks in Paris :
31°C to 32°C, with pollution, not very healthy. During day, unpleasant to stay outside. Hopefully, temperature go down to mid 20's°C at night, perfect time for my fan to inject at full power fresh air in house. Otherwise, temperature stay at 30 and more under the roof all night long(where's my bedroom).

Yeah, but especially LA right now.

Southern California; Los Angeles.

“For those that aren’t familiar, while most of us have our hottest average temperatures in July, SoCal usually has theirs in early September (I’m sure there’s a @Climatologist49 map for this). This sort of heat in July there is incredible. Natl wx this week has been something else”
