La ola de calor deja 27 muertos en un sólo día: qué factores son clave en los días más letales

Heat waves have become increasingly common during the month of June in the past 12 years. The first of this year, with temperatures of up to 44 degrees in southern Spain, began last Friday. Very high temperatures that put the most vulnerable populations at risk. Until the beginning of the 21st century, there were more fatalities from cold than from heat. However, as of the summer of 2003, it is the heat that kills more than the cold. One more evidence of the progressive process of global warming.
