Siestas To Return?

From the voluminous "You're stewing in your own wastes, you fucking cretins" files:
A more extreme scenario of future global warming, which estimated a temperature rise of 10.8 degrees F, would make it difficult to work in the hottest months in many parts of the world, Dunne said at a telephone briefing.

Labor capacity would be all but eliminated in the lower Mississippi Valley and most of the United States east of the Rocky Mountains would be exposed to heat stress "beyond anything experienced in the world today," he said.
Hah! Turns out those of you who haven't drowned will not be safe even when you're sleeping.
Under this scenario, heat stress in New York City would exceed that of present-day Bahrain, while in Bahrain, the heat and humidity could cause hyperthermia - potentially dangerous overheating - even in sleeping people who were not working at all.
Drowning in your own sweat while you sleep. Warms our evil heart & soul just to imagine it.

"Little Siestas of the Poor"

I had a disagreement with one of the other mentors in the FIRST lab. He is a software engineer and a religious sort. And thus, he feels that AGW is a farce and something that needs no action...

I said that I had seen that the globe had warmed 1 degree over the last decade, and he scoffed. Since I was busy doing somthing else, I was not able to document my statement till later. I found I was wrong.

Turns out it has changed .72 degrees over the last 12 years.

Software engineers and dentists tell us that is something we shouldn't have to worry about.
