Everyone is in danger from heat at 54C. Please try it so that I will be spared your unceasing whining. You don't have much time left and you don't care to do anything productive with it so why not?

I agree, 54ºC is too hot for comfort, but what made you mention that figure particularly?

Now you're being silly, again.
Take a look at this page, here's a snippet:
Mohenjo-daro, a ruined city in what is now Pakistan that contains the last traces of a 4,000-year-old civilisation that flourished on the banks of the river Indus, today entered the modern history books after government meteorologists recorded a temperature of 53.7C (129F). Only Al ‘Aziziyah, in Libya (57.8C in 1922), Death valley in California (56.7 in 1913) and Tirat Zvi in Israel (53.9 in 1942) are thought to have been hotter.

Global Warming is a process to be embraced... there is little to fear from Global Warming.

My posts are on the general sense of the science which is warming of impending risks we cannot predict.
"...impending risks we cannot predict"
Here is a site that collects the numerous predictions of impending risks that scientists predict.

It is the accepted figure for maximum human temperature tolerance. Above 54C humidex, you are headed for heat stroke.

And this is totally irrelevant. The point is that a much hotter world in general is going to exceed human tolerance much more often and be much more dependent on artificial cooling to survive. And that is an EXPENSIVE proposition.

"Better known for building igloos during hunts on the polar ice, Inuit in the village of Kuujjuaq in Quebec, Canada, are installing 10 air conditioners for about 25 office workers."

"Billion-dollar shifts in lifestyles in rich nations are likely as people adapt to what most scientists say is a warming stoked by use of fossil fuels -- affecting demand for everything from soft drinks or foods to architecture and tourism."

Call me back if Toronto temperature ever gets to 54ºC, naturally or with added humidex.

Any luck finding that dictionary with the 'fourty' spelling?

You first.. And I am more likely to be affected by 'climate refugees' before I am affected by >54C temperature in Canada.

Your 'cute diversion' fails. This isn't about me any more than it is about you. It is about the human race, or at least the INTELLIGENT portion of it.
