An additional 4,300 people could be killed each year by health problems caused by increased ground-level ozone. Yields of major U.S. crops will likely decline because of rising temperatures and increased drought and flooding. The number of days with temperatures over 100 degrees Fahrenheit could double, posing major health risks to children and the elderly.
