According to hospital reports, many of the hundreds of deaths that took place in the Sahel region in April 2024 are probably related to heat. The scientists from Mali, Burkina Faso, Mozambique, the Netherlands, Sweden, the United States, and the United Kingdom revealed this during a briefing hosted by World Weather Attribution. The report’s title is “Extreme Sahel heatwave that hit highly vulnerable population at the end of Ramadan would not have occurred without climate change.” The study evaluated the extent to which the Sahel’s extreme heat was influenced by human-caused climate change, and it concluded that the Sahel’s extreme heat, which claimed many lives at the end of Ramadan, would not have occurred in the absence of ongoing fossil fuel consumption.
