A Barely Noticeable Increase In Temps Will Force Workers To Get Up Earlier Or Something

Can you really notice the difference between 67 and 68.5 degrees Fahrenheit? Perhaps inside you might have an inkling in a controlled environment, but, now try it outside. No? Of course, most of these nutters pushing this garbage have no idea what getting up and doing a hard day’s work actually is. Hence why they always plan their protests for 10am or later

Study: Climate change could force outdoor workers to wake up far earlier

A new study published in Earth’s Future, a journal of the American Geophysical Union, indicates that if society tries to avoid the economic impacts of climate change on outdoor labor by shifting working hours, outdoor workers in many regions will need to start working well before dawn at the end of this century to avoid the effect of excessive heat stress.

Outdoor workers are exposed to excessive heat stress, particularly in hot seasons, a trend that is expected to increase as a result of climate change. This will reduce the capability of physical labor and eventually cause economic loss.

Shifting working time earlier in the morning, when it is cooler than during midday, can be an effective way to reduce the effect of heat stress. However, the plausibility and efficacy of such an intervention has not been quantitatively assessed on a global scale.

A research team led by Jun’ya Takakura, a researcher at the National Institute for Environmental Studies in Japan, investigated whether shifting work times can offset the economic impacts of labor capacity reduction due to climate change. The researchers used a new method to estimate the heat exposure index, and calculated the required amount of time shift necessary to keep the current level of labor capacity in the future.

The results showed that although a time shift was effective to reduce the effect of heat stress, the required amount of change in working times was not realistic. The expected start time for outdoor workers would be well before dawn unless stringent climate-change mitigation was achieved.

They’re actually propositioning that workers would need start hours and hours before dawn to avoid the dangerous average rise from 58.3 to 59.8, if we consider that the average earth temp will go up another 1.5F by 2100. Doom, baby, doom!

    Unlikely, but that’s not relevant is it? Anyway, you know better than to type that. What IS relevant is the resulting effects of the increase of 1.5F in average surface temperature. Heat waves, droughts, floods, sea level rise, changes in growing seasons, changes in pest distributions, etc.

    Then Porter takes a cheap shot at those who do work he can’t begin to understand:

    Sad.
