The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the importance of changing temperature variability\ud with climate change in assessments of future heat-related mortality. Previous studies have only considered\ud changes in the mean temperature. Here we present estimates of heat-related mortality resulting from climate\ud change for six cities: Boston, Budapest, Dallas, Lisbon, London and Sydney. They are based on climate\ud change scenarios for the 2080s (2070-2099) and the temperature-mortality (t-m) models constructed and\ud validated in Gosling et al. (2007). We propose a novel methodology for assessing the impacts of climate\ud change on heat-related mortality that considers both changes in the mean and variability of the temperature\ud distribution
