Item 1 is true.
However, the overriding issues are that (a) humanity may not be able to adapt to rapid changes which are attributable to (b) human
production of carbon emissions, particularly from the burning of fossil fuels but not limited to just that activity.
provided you with corroboration the scientific community (i.e. NAS and NASA) regards warming climate as a significant threat. Check
with the AAAS or the U.K.'s RAS for additional information, if you like.
Item 2 ignores the impact of extreme weather which comes in tow with quickly changing climate. (i.e. the heat and drought that
destroys crops along with destructive flooding, hail, migration Northward of pests in tandem with Northward trending extneded growing > seasons, catastrophic wind events and so on)
As for item 3: these links provide more accurate information and relevant projections
Bottom line: Whether it is true or not that more people die from extreme cold or heat,
