For discussion and the complete study, please see Global, regional, and national burden of mortality associated with non-optimal ambient temperatures from 2000 to 2019: a three-stage modelling study.
The study is not as cynical as the charts and Tweets make it seem. It concludes:
A substantial burden of mortality is attributable to non-optimal temperatures, which exhibits complex geographical and temporal patterns worldwide. Our findings call for decisive and coordinated action to raise public awareness of temperature as a health risk. The variation in regional and local mortality burden associated with non-optimal temperature warrants in-depth exploration to design adaptive strategies against both excess heat and cold that protect health.
