How Is This Possible in This Day and Age?

How is it possible for anywhere between 5,000 and 14,000 people to have died from the heat wave in France? Don't they have air conditioning?

I offer condolences to the families and prayers for the deceased — and my hope that the French will find whatever it is that is allowing so many to die from the weather and fix it.
