I thought you enjoyed extreme climates Dublin is almost constantly cool, never ever hot, and, I guess, sees very little snow every year. Why would you chose it ?

My image of Dublin may be dated. I'm sure parts of it are very nice.

Boston is a beautiful city, but I'm not sure which one I would prefer living in until I visted Dublin. Boston has a horrific road system though.

I couldn't hack living in the searing heat of Arizona. Fair play to those who can though, but I'd probably be a hermit.

Dublin hands down.

Extremely hot or cold climates aren't really my cup of tea. I like continental climates, that get both a proper summer and a proper winter, but nothing out of this world as mean monthly temps.
I must admit that Dublin is dreadfully boring but as I like lush landscapes I had to give it the edge over Yuma. In top of that, Yuma's summer temps seem rather nasty. Sure, a few 40°C+ highs would keep things interesting but 3 months of that, no thanks!

Yuma by a mile... despite summers being over the top even for me... the winters look half decent

Here we go again. I only write with objectivity, not subjectivity like you alleged. I'm not going to infer or comment on your intelligence but for myself, as an intelligent, educated person, I can easily understand the tangible connection between hot weather and the (low) quality of life.

This is a lose/lose scenario. Both terrible climates.

I would choose Yuma, even though I think Dublin would be more comfortable. Dublin just doesn't really have much to look forward to. So many wet days, low sunshine, and 6 months of what I would consider winter max temps, and not enough of a summer to make up for it.

Yuma only has 4 months of truly awful weather, The rest of the year would be acceptable. The dry is a big issue, but I enjoy growing cacti and succulents anyway.

Yuma. Five months of discomfort is better than eleven.

Dublin all the way. Yuma's climate is just purely horrendous.

I pick Dublin for its higher rainfall, Yuma's 94% possible sunshine is way too much and I'd rather put up with Dublin's monotonous temperatures than Yuma's constant sunshine and aridity.
