One observation I have made regarding the impact of higher temperatures in our daily lives. People are becoming less active, that is, staying indoors more as the heat and humidity drains their energy. This will affect their health and stamina. Recently I have noticed this happens more so to people growing older (at least they are commenting on this more). People with discretionary income (money left over after paying all the necessary bills, like food, rent, health care, etc.) are able to continue their physical activity in air conditioned homes/health clubs, etc. It will be interesting to notice how people adapt to the discomfort of higher temperatures (and probably colder temperatures in winter). More hibernation (staying at home); more isolation/separation from others? Have you noticed this yet? Any creative responses?
