Very good Trim - this just proves an earlier statement - different strokes for different folks - I choose hot and cold on my terms not something I just have to deal with!! But that's just me!

that is funny, so good thing we have heaters and AC aye?
besides I doubt that South Florida (Miami) used to be extremely popular even before AC was ever invented...

Environment can affect development, but it's not "Heat and humidity" or tropical weather that is the cause. The development and agricultural patterns of old effect the location of the "great" cities of today.

However, the great pre-Columbian Aztecs, Maya, etc., all existed in hot and humid areas, and were very advanced. Iraq is a hot hellish hole for half the year, with temperatures approaching 120F in the summer, has much more severe and erratic weather than Miami, and was the cradle of civilization.


Let us all look forward to SoFla becoming more and more like a Bagdad then..Iraq may be the cradle of civilization in your eyes. Best of luck with that.

In my eyes? No, try a history book. Spend some of your "trapped inside during the summer escaping the sun that will melt your face and destroy your life" at a nice air conditioned library.


South Florida the next cradle of Civilization? Of course not, but neither is the Rust Belt. Miami IS one of THE iconic American cities that foreigners think of when they think of American cities. It's problems have very little to do with "climate" and more to do with "inhabitants."

I like the heat, not the cold. I go to work tonight, and it's going to be cold! I'll be all bundled up in sweater, coat, hat, long sleeve shirt, etc.
