Arrakis. Desert planet.

Many countries in that area of the world have all the resources they need. They have the technology and they have the capital. They should start working at making sustainable cities, probably underground, and start shifting away from fossil fuels. They can have cool environments, water, food growing areas, etc.

They just have to stay off of the surface for about 12 hours each day.

In an odd way, they might have the least trouble making the transition. There is no pretense about trying to save the environment in those countries, so you might as well cover them with panels and turbines. The temperatures will be so high that there will be no point in trying to fight them. Going underground will be the obvious solution. They will be humans' first Moon and Mars colony prototypes.

Not that any of them actually do the work themselves: that's what the slave labour is for,

According to doctors, when the "wet bulb" temperature reaches around 35C, the body can no longer cool itself by perspiration and you die of heat stroke.  Going outside in heat like that will literally kill you.  It's apparently already hitting that lethal zone in parts of the Persian Gulf from time to time.

It hit that 4 times last week here in the Niagara region of Canada. Nice and humid too, between Lake Erie and Lake Ontario. It's hotter and more humid here than in Jamaica and Mexico. The farm workers are downright heroic for keeping our hemipshere's food supply running.
