Phoenix Will Be Almost Unlivable by 2050 Thanks to Climate Change – VICE

Sorry to put such a fine point on this, but even without climate change, Phoenix, Arizona, is already pretty uninhabitable. Don’t get me wrong, I spend a fair amount of time there, and I love it—particularly in the fall and winter—but without air-conditioning and refrigeration, it would be unlivable as is. Even with those modern conveniences, the hottest months take their toll on my feeble Southern Californian body and brain. The historical average number of days per year in Phoenix that hit 100 degrees is a mind-bending 92. But that number is rapidly rising as climate change bears down on America’s fifth-largest city.

Phoenix isn’t the only unlivable place. So is Las Vegas. So is Houston. And on and on and on – imagine living south of Kentucky without air conditioning and refrigeration. Hell, we can’t live in New York with refrigeration.

Thanks!
