Extreme Heat Waves Will Change How We Live. We’re Not Ready

I am not even sure what to say about the "were not ready" author of this article other than to say "suck it up, buttercup" people have been doing just fine in Las Vegas, Phoenix and other hot climates Hell, we moved from Alaska to Vegas and we aren't crying about the heat. Sheesh.

Still, humans continue to relocate to warm places like the Southwest, drawn by the temperate climate. In the coming decades, many climate researchers expect that pattern to reverse, as those once-desirable locations become too hot, flooded or otherwise uninhabitable. In some locations, particularly in the West, people will soon need to decide whether to rebuild for the new reality — or relocate elsewhere.
