The balancing act: From claptrap to the preposterous

By From page A4 | October 30, 2013

If the IPCC didn’t scare you, then the latest claptrap from a biological geographer named Camilo Mora who claims to be associated with the University of Hawaii should. It says that by 2047, the whole world will be engulfed in off-the-chart heat. His study says the intense heat will start in Kingston, Jamaica, in just 10 years. Other cities will follow: Singapore in 2028, Mexico in 2031, Cairo in 2036 and Phoenix and Honolulu by 2043. He says the last city to take on a new super warm climate will be Anchorage in 2071. That means in about 20 to 30 years Anchorage may be the new real estate hot spot (no pun intended).
