In France, 14,802 people died during a 2003 heat wave.
In France, the vast majority of the people who died in that HEAT WAVE were the elderly. Without readily available air-conditioning, their cardiac and pulmonary systems could not cope with the stifling heat. Thousands were found dead ALONE in their apartments.
If you think the EPA would feel bad about that event, think again. A great way to reduce Medicare rolls. I’m not kidding.
