Not only is the fear of Global Warming scientifically unsound, it is also logically unsound.
Many more deaths are associated with cold weather than hot weather:
Weather blamed in Orion Township crash that killed 3 teens

Orion Township -- When three teen girls were riding home last week, they were as jubilant as usual.
Ashley Felder and twins Sy'mone Analyse Nicole Johnson and Brianna Marie Latreese Johnson, all 14, were returning from Oxford High School, where two of the girls were on a cheerleading squad.
In the car, "they were laughing and joking, having fun," said Robert Elam, the boyfriend of the twins' mother, who drove them home. "They were outgoing girls ... liked to have a good time."
That would change days later.
All three girls died early Monday after piling into a 2005 Toyota for a ride to a school in blowing snow.
As Felder's mother, Barbara, 39, headed north on Joslyn near Lake Sixteen about 7 a.m., she apparently lost control of the vehicle and slid into the southbound lanes and into the path of a 2002 GMC Sierra pickup. The crash killed all three girls. "The snow was blowing almost to a whiteout for a period this morning," said Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe, who was in the area around the time of the crash.
"There's no question this was weather-related."
You seldom, if ever, read about traffic accidents caused by extreme heat conditions. Cars may overheat, but there will not be pileups of dozens of vehicles sliding around as they do on icy roads or crashes as happens in whiteout conditions.
We should welcome a warmer climate... even if that might mean a gradual erosion of some shoreline property. Unfortunately, we could be in for a colder climate.
