Global Warming and Heat Waves - National Wildlife Federation
- "Global warming is bringing more frequent and severe heat waves, and the result will be serious for vulnerable populations," said Dr. Amanda Staudt, National Wildlife Federation climate scientist. "That means air pollution in urban areas could get worse, bringing increased risk of heart attacks, strokes and asthma attacks. Children, the elderly, poor, and people of color are especially vulnerable to these effects."More extremely hot summer days are projected for every part of the country, and 30 large cities are especially vulnerable.
