Some like it cold. Some might not live long enough, to get good and old.
Potentially Fatal Combinations of Humidity and Heat Are Emerging Across the Globe
I can remember way back when I was a younger lad, Me and my pet dinosaur had a great time! 😉
Actually I was a deckhand for a time, working towboats for a couple of years, and while it was always hot out on the tow, with the sun beating down on all of that solid steel, it was often like walking through an oven, the heat at times was stifling. We went through New Orleans, on our way darn near to the gulf one time, and while I was there the heat was incredible. I mean stepping foot out on the deck from an air conditioned boat, you immediately felt the sweat pores open up and the water started flowing. A miserable, beat you down to the ground sort of heat. But we persevered. It’s what tougher than sensible, types do.
Then in my shell digging days, I’d come up from a dive on a day with 110 heat index, and all the water wetting the floor of the boat would be dry in like 10 minutes, the sweat pouring off my nose as I graded shell, the only thing that made it tolerable was knowing I’d be jumping back in the water soon. We persevere.
This was way before the global warming thing was a thing. I have to wonder now, with all of the threats facing humanity, what with Covid 19, and global warming with its intensifying weather extremes, hurricanes, tornados and such, and with those in charge looking the other way, greed and profit being the main motivators, just how much time does humanity actually have left?
There is only so much that we can persevere, after that we are just dead. And we will be taking an entire planet of life forms with us.
Hug the wife and kids, or significant other, every day. Enjoy what we have for what time we have left to enjoy it. Maybe we can turn this thing around, but it isn’t looking too good.
Y’all stay safe. Stay healthy.
