No, it's because of things like this:

PNC: South leads nation in economic growth - Atlanta Business Chronicle

Quote:
he South is leading the nation in terms of economic growth, which bodes well for the area's transportation and logistics industries. The dramatic plunge in gasoline prices since mid-2014 is a boon for the region, as Georgians spend a greater than average share of their income on gasoline. The region's transportation and logistics firms will also benefit from reduced input costs.
When was the last time, the Midwest was a leader in economic growth? Have there been any signals that lead us to believe it will be a leader in the near future?

Truth is, the South, West, and a few isolated areas of the Northeast/Mid Atlantic(NYC, Boston, D.C.) are still doing far better than the remaining NE and Midwest. Latest job growth numbers agree with this. Even Chicago, the Midwest's crown, is struggling in job growth. Atlanta recently has gotten a few large companies to move their HQ from the Northeast and Midwest(Mercedes comes to mind).

They will live in places where they can beg for jobs in a world where very little work remains to be done by human beings. Maybe on the periphery of gated cities where there is a chance they will be briefly admitted to work for the privileged caste inside.

America 2065

The population will still be increasing but it will be a much smaller increase than the present day, the population will start to stabilize like in has in Germany and Japan

some states will however loose population
i think this will be

West Virginia
Maine
Vermont
Rhode Island
Michigan

and probably some more

Utah is going to have the largest population growth, their population is going to explode by 2065

"Too hot" could be a reference to global warming.

But that said, Atlanta isn't much hotter in the summer than Philadelphia.
