Not really. Being free of poverty and having modern energy sources and technology, the populations would just use air conditioning to survive the occasional heatwaves.
How many cattle, sheep, and chickens will get this blessed ac? If humans die at this temperature, many animals will too.

Parts of Australia, which is coming out of Winter have already hit a record 90 F. In places this is 10 degrees F higher than average Spring for them.

Each person in any well managed world is an asset, not a liability. If a culture is structured to make humans a liability, the culture must evolve or it will become extinct. There isn't a limit on how many humans can be on earth.

There are ways to cool barns and animals as well.

Not only from the "Dead Zones;" most humans live along the oceanfronts. Sea levels at the shore have been rising (despite what some believe) and after most oceanfront cities are destroyed or heavily damaged hundreds of millions will have to move inland. In Florida alone, 20 million will be looking for new digs.

Less ice= more dark areas on the surface to warm up by the sun, this in turn warms us up faster and faster. Just a normal change over millions of years.
Normally a change over millions of years, but this warming is happening over less than 200 years.

Continental ice sheets have come and gone several times in just the past 500,000 years.
