Aim: We show the link between temperature, humidity and daily numbers of deaths in nearly 200 European regions, which are used to infer transient projections of mortality under state-of-the-art high-resolution climate change simulations.
Results: The rise in heat-related mortality will start to completely compensate the reduction of deaths from cold during the second half of the century. Nevertheless, projections suggest that human lifespan might indeed increase if a substantial degree of adaptation to warm temperatures takes place.
