Heat Waves Kill More People of Color Each Year

With summer in full effect, the Huffington Post highlights how heat-related deaths in the U.S. are expected to rise from 700 to 3,000-5,000 by the year 2050. Most important, these deaths are disproportionately higher among low-income Americans and people of color who are less likely to be able to afford air conditioning and live in areas with pools and cooling centers.
