Re: "Sweltering future in forecast for South" (TNT, 5-26).
We now have a new climate development called “person days” that enables us to further define the coming ravages of global warming. The climate cartel now multiplies the days in 2040 and beyond that exceed 95 degrees by the population of the affected areas (including projected demographic change) to arrive at the number of “person days” subjected to these scorching temperatures.
According to the authors of this important scientific study, if you wish to avoid this climatic death sentence, it would be wise to avoid relocation to Texas, Oklahoma or Louisiana.
Why haven’t we thought of this type of measurement accuracy before? Think of the number of “person days” accumulated by children sitting in front of the TV and snacking rather than playing outside. Childhood obesity would be virtually stamped out by now had such a valuable social tool been available to us.
Of course, to be scientifically accurate, our “person days” calculation must have at least included the number of TVs sold since 1945, the number of cartoon shows available for viewing and the abundance of treats consumed.
If the climate crowd can come up with a more ridiculous assessment of the effects of manmade climate change, I have no idea what it will be. Until then, though, I intend to keep the TV unplugged and the Twinkies and Oreos under lock and key whenever my grandchildren visit.
