- Nov 7, 200315,000 Parishaners died in August from the record setting heat-wave
that reportedly took the lives of over 35,000 Europeans last summer.
Unless Paris invests heavily in air conditioning (and supplying the
electricity for it), I wouldn't advise anyone over 60 moving there
any time soon. Thanks to the U.S. and other heavy fossil fuel
burning countries of the world, the possibility of more of these
tragedies happening in the world will grow with each passing year,
especially in cities vulnerable to "heat island" effects.
