I came across a new paper trying to claim that increased temperatures caused by global warming will kill more “old people” in Beijing.
In the supplementary data they posted the graph of daily mortality.
First thing I noticed is that deaths peak in January and bottom out in the summer.
Yes there are some summertime spikes. But it appears that something like 60 more people die per day die in January than in July.
It seems to me that if winters are warmer, lives will be saved.
