Unholy Hell, I'm a believer NOW! OMG! OMG! The Consensus is Clear and the Science is Settled! Climate Change is gonna mess up our sex lives! Outta bed you Deniers! Your good times are over!!

Heh, yeah, as if I have a sex-life to worry about.

Well, although often amusing, the endless proclamations of "CLIMATE CHANGE CAUSES THIS, THAT, AND EVERYTHING!" really don't help sell the concept; they are mind numbing.  The Climate Change cause, as noble as it is or isn't,  has become a joke. Advocates really need to rethink the packaging of their message.  Anyhoo, everything above and below my text was copied (Fair Use) from THIS ARTICLE.

Sex and climate change
Temperature impacts the sexual patterns of human beings for two reasons, according to Professor Barreca.
One reason he gave was that human beings did not want to exert themselves physically in hot weather, due to possible discomfort.
The second reason was more scientific.
"The effect of temperature on the production of sperm — that's been shown to be pretty strong in animals," Professor Barreca said.
"When you expose a bull to high temperatures, sperm motility and sperm count fall right off."
He said with the onset of climate change and global warming, the implications could grow.
"According to a state of the art global circulation model, there is going to be about 90 hot days per year by the end of the 21st century — that's about 60 more days than we currently experience," he said. 
"Using our estimates, we project that the number of births will fall by about 107,000 per year in the United States by the end of the 21st century."
He said this implied climate could have an impact on the seasonal variation of births, and ultimately change when we have to attend the most birthday parties.

I thought the hot weather was the reason Southern Europeans, Mexicans, Indians, Africans and East Asians were so fecund!
Being a professor means never at a loss for an opinion, and this one didn't let not knowing anything get in the way of expressing one.
