Cold Weather Kills WAY MORE People Than Hot Weather, Major Science Study Finds

It’s sad to think that anyone dies from the weather, but it happens a lot more than you think it.

And right now, it sure feels like left-wing politicians and their media stooges are using “summer” to push fear and make a case for their goofy climate cult.

Everywhere you look now, summer is being re-branded as some “killer force” that’s slaughtering everyone in its path.

Look how our weather maps have changed:

And the media and politicians like Joe Biden are acting as if “heat waves” are new, and are some deadly result of “climate change.”

Throughout my whole life, there have been “hot” and “mild” summers. It’s never the same. Some summers are just more miserable, the same way some winters are harsher.

This is a normal part of life, but once again, it’s feeling as if we’re getting the “COVID fear treatment” again… taking something relatively mild, and turning it into a “deadly plague.”

But Science Daily sets the record straight.

After conducting a lengthy and detailed study back in 2015, they found that cold weather kills 20 times as many people as hot weather, according to an international study analyzing over 74 million deaths in 384 locations across 13 countries.

But the real kicker is they found that deaths due to moderately hot or cold weather substantially exceed those resulting from extreme heat waves or cold spells.

So, that means “extreme weather,” hot or cold, is not killing nearly as many people as just “moderate” weather is.

This flies in the face of the “fear-mongering” that Dems and the media are pushing.

Here’s more of what the study said:

Cold weather kills 20 times as many people as hot weather, according to an international study analyzing over 74 million deaths in 384 locations across 13 countries. The findings, published in The Lancet, also reveal that deaths due to moderately hot or cold weather substantially exceed those resulting from extreme heat waves or cold spells.

“It’s often assumed that extreme weather causes the majority of deaths, with most previous research focusing on the effects of extreme heat waves,” says lead author Dr Antonio Gasparrini from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in the UK. “Our findings, from an analysis of the largest dataset of temperature-related deaths ever collected, show that the majority of these deaths actually happen on moderately hot and cold days, with most deaths caused by moderately cold temperatures.”

The study analysed over 74 million (74,225,200) deaths between 1985 and 2012 in 13 countries with a wide range of climates, from cold to subtropical. Data on daily average temperature, death rates, and confounding variables (eg, humidity and air pollution) were used to calculate the temperature of minimum mortality (the optimal temperature), and to quantify total deaths due to non-optimal ambient temperature in each location. The researchers then estimated the relative contributions of heat and cold, from moderate to extreme temperatures.

Around 7.71% of all deaths were caused by non-optimal temperatures, with substantial differences between countries, ranging from around 3% in Thailand, Brazil, and Sweden to about 11% in China, Italy, and Japan. Cold was responsible for the majority of these deaths (7.29% of all deaths), while just 0.42% of all deaths were attributable to heat.

The study also found that extreme temperatures were responsible for less than 1% of all deaths, while mildly sub-optimal temperatures accounted for around 7% of all deaths — with most (6.66% of all deaths) related to moderate cold.

According to Dr Gasparrini, “Current public-health policies focus almost exclusively on minimizing the health consequences of heat waves. Our findings suggest that these measures need to be refocused and extended to take account of a whole range of effects associated with temperature.”

Well, this is good to know, right?

Can everyone settle down now?

After all, this is a very scientific study, and the left wants us to “trust the science” and stuff…
