A little blurb I posted yesterday on an oily site. It was appropriate to a theoretical discussion of temperature and humidity. Generally I tend to be both agnostic and generally uninterested in global whatever. I do have memories of working and living at that non air-conditioned 1954 building which was justifiably imploded a few years back.

"Decades ago I wrote a required term paper for Pediatrics on insensible water loss from lung and skin and the likelihood of rapid death from vomiting or especially diarrhea in the very young with diseases like cholera. One conclusion (this was 1954) was that the diarrhea ward at Houston’s Jefferson Davis Charity Hospital should have air-conditioning. Water (sweat) will not evaporate when the humidity is near 100% and the body must dissipate heat to maintain temperature at or near 98.6 F."
