[World Wide Web Reporter Zhu Pei] This year's summer is extremely hot, many places in the world have burst out due to the death of heat stroke cases. But scientists at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, say the number of deaths from tropical and subtropical heat will quadruple by 2080.

According to Russian satellite news agency, citing EurekAlert in August 1st. The web site news says scientists have set up a computer model in combination with the projected emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, the ability of people to adapt to the changing environment and the population density of different countries.

According to the most pessimistic speculation, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, Australia, will be more frequently killed by weather disasters, up 471% from 1971 to 2010. The death toll in India, Greece, Japan and Canada will increase significantly. The associated natural disasters such as fire and drought will make the situation worse.

Scientists stressed the importance of implementing the Paris climate agreement. The agreement proposes to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and achieve a green and low carbon transformation. These measures help to slow the pace of global warming and keep the global average temperature rise within 2 degrees Celsius in nearly ten years. If the average temperature goes beyond this range, the climate disaster will follow.
