I'm screwed. I set the air to 70 degrees, ceiling fan on high speed and I'm sandwiched between two Ooler cooling pads. And I still barely sleep because I get hot at night.

People in hotter regions of the world seem not to have turned into zombies due to sleep deprivation.  If this is an anticipated effect of climate change, I think I'll ignore it in favor of paying attention to things like "regions becoming uninhabitable by humans", "seasonal storms become much more frequent and destructive with more heat energy available to power them", and "rising seas will cause massive amounts of damage and ongoing issues with ports and the cities adjacent to them".

Rating AGW issues on a scale of 1-10, this has to be a 0.5 at best.

Have you thought about losing weight?

I tried, but your mother keeps coming back.

People in hotter regions will be dead because their bodies will no longer be able to transfer heat to their surroundings.

This is the real replacement plan of One Percenter Whites.

I am Tom Joad's Complete Lack of Surprise: People in hotter regions will be dead because their bodies will no longer be able to transfer heat to their surroundings.


Northern India recently brushed with reaching 50C.  Delhi already has over 60 dangerously hot days per year - where sweating isn't enough to keep a resting human cool enough to survive long term - and is supposed to more than double that in the next 80 years.

I expect this will be one of our many climate predictions that turns out to be overly optimistic.

Those people aren't going to lay down and die (well... sadly, a lot will), they're going to migrate.  And they won't be welcomed wherever they go because there will be too many to absorb.  And then there will be massacres or war.

If you accept that climate change is real, and evolution is real, then you must accept that the human population will adapt to climate change without any government intervention or tinkering.

I don't believe you're real.

I FEEL like you're saying India has long been uninhabitable and humans simply insist, probably contributing to the problem.

They don't work all day.  They take the middle of the day off.  Start really early, work into the evening.  They also don't punch a time clock, and have set hours of work.   Try doing road construction like that.  Or any of your high-powered, corporate jobs.

Let them die.  let it all die.  We made a big mistake.
