NY Times Blames Heat And Humidity On You And Your Burger Fixation

See, before fossil fueled vehicles there was no such thing as heat and humidity at the same time. Surely, there was no issue with this during the Global Climate Optimum, the Roman Warm Period, etc, right?

Global Warming’s Deadly Combination: Heat and Humidity

Here’s one more reason the world should aim to limit warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, a goal of the international Paris Agreement: It will help keep the tropics from becoming a deadly hothouse.

A study published Monday suggests that sharply cutting emissions of greenhouse gases to stay below that limit, which is equivalent to about 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit of warming since 1900, will help the tropics avoid episodes of high heat and high humidity — known as extreme wet-bulb temperature, or TW — that go beyond the limits of human survival.

“An important problem of climate research is what a global warming target means for local extreme weather events,” said Yi Zhang, a graduate student in geosciences at Princeton University and the study’s lead author. “This work addresses such a problem for extreme TW.”

The study is in line with other recent research showing that high heat and humidity are potentially one of the deadliest consequences of global warming.

“We know that climate change is making extreme heat and humidity more common,” said Robert Kopp, a climate scientist at Rutgers University who was not involved in the study. “And both of those things reduce our ability to live in a given climate.”

I thought it was making extreme cold and snow more common? Have these people actually been to the tropics? They’re already rather hot and humid. And humanity did just fine during previous warm periods which were actually much warmer than this one, and the didn’t have the luxury of air conditioning (which the climate cult wants to do away with for Other People, or at least force Other People to keep their AC at a much warmer level), or refrigerators (which the climate cult want to make way more expensive by changing the refrigerants), nor modern housing.

Work or exercise generates heat, and the body has to dissipate it. If the air temperature is higher than body temperature, the main source of cooling is through evaporation of sweat. But if the humidity reaches a point where sweat cannot evaporate, “essentially the body will gain heat,” said Dr. Kenny, who was not involved in the new study.

That stresses the cardiovascular system. “The strain that the heart is facing becomes progressively greater, especially if there’s successive days of heat exposure,” he said.

Kinda like always. Scientific studies mostly do not “suggest”, the offer proof. But, climate studies from the cult are about prognostication. Nothing more, nothing less, all about governmental power increases.

  1. Hairy says:

    Beef consumption in the USA peaked in 1976
    It has dropped 20% since then
    Cowboys are sadz

    • Est1950 says:

      You are a pathetically racist individual Hairy. Using hate speech against cowboys.

      AGW is a terrorist organization intent on the genocide of an entire world.

    • Jl says:

      Thanks, John, but that neither proves, nor disproves, the opinion by the NYT.

  2. Professor Hale says:

    Not sure why a “scientist” needed to explain why temperatures above 100 degrees were uncomfortable for humans. I think most of us already knew that.

  3. Est1950 says:

    India has a population of over 300 million bovines as per the 2019 livestock census, including 192.49 million cattle and 109.85 million buffaloes.

    The United States is home to approximately 94.4 million cattle and calves as of 2020, a decrease from 94.8 million cattle and calves in 2019.

    An estimated 232,000,000 cows are in Brazil representing 23.19%. China (96.85m), United States (94.4m), European Union (88.44m), and Argentina (53.76m) are the other countries with large numbers of cattle.

    AND YET LETS DESTROY THE USA. AGAIN AGW is a terrorist organization intent on genocide half of the world and it is the goal of china to destroy the only superpower standing in their way of world domination.

    Good Job, Hairy, Elwood and This WikiLawyer Zachriel. Your children will be very proud of you when they have nothing to eat, living in a high rise and their every thought dictated by the CCP of CHINA.
