    'Intolerable' heat waves forecast for Persian Gulf

    "Extreme heat that might occur 1 out of 20 days now will be the normal summer day of 2070 and beyond"


    http://www.usatoday.com/story/weather/2015/10/26/heat-waves-persian-gulf-climate-change-global-warming/74625754/


    Billions of dollars spent building all of those buildings the last couple of decades in a place that will be intolerable to humans. What a waste of money and resources. I wonder if 100 years from now if these areas will be totally deserted waste lands. An ultimate symbol of the gross amount of waste of our time.

    B-b-b but, it was all done in Allah's name!
    I always thought of those places like I do of Vegas: mindless, sinful hell-holes that offer nothing of improvement to mankind.

    Perhaps the areas will be totally deserted, but where will the people go? The problem of climate refugees may exceed what we are seeing now and it is quite apparent that the world's political systems are unable to deal with large numbers of refugees.

    By then life expectancy may be 130 and you will get to see it.

    I heard that, just speculation, but I don't doubt anything considering the amount of climate change in places all over the world... especially those coastal places that are seeing a great deal of "water rise" due to melting.

    You don't suppose someone is trying to fry 'em out of there, do you?

    However quaint it may seem on your side of The Pond, it still includes transgressions like hatred, bigotry, murder; you know, all the "real" crimes committed todat. (But see, the X Commandments, generally.) And yes, some of us actually believe not only in the concept of sin, but in its consequences.

    The consequences often follow naturally. For example, if one continually bears false witness or covets, then people will not trust him. If someone commits murder, then the law will see to it that there will be consequences. People may be able to get away with such behavior for a while, but eventually there will be consequences. The last six of the 10 commandments were obviously designed to improve the quality of life for the community (broadly defined) and enhance social justice.
