Wet Bulb
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2906879/

If warmings of 10 C were really to occur in next three centuries, the area of land likely rendered uninhabitable by heat stress would dwarf that affected by rising sea level. Heat stress thus deserves more attention as a climate-change impact. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ygSKOQCxVC0&sns=tw

Wet Bulb - Upper Limit of Human Adaptability
Heat stress imposes a robust upper limit to such adaptation. Peak heat stress, quantified by the wet-bulb temperature TW, is surprisingly similar across diverse climates today.

Stephen Schneider: Is the Science "Settled"?
Informative breakdown of how difficult climate science is to understand and predict.(February 4, 2010) Stephen Schneider, (RIP) professor of biology at Stanford and senior fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment, unpacks the political and scientific debates surrounding climate change.
Some topics covered.
1.) The process of how data is compiled and published. (peer review process)
2.) How data is misunderstood and misrepresented by deniers by selective inattention to inconvenient components of a data set.
3.) Principles of decision analysis to elements of understanding how a system works before you have all the data.
4.) Unpredictable tipping points.

Jeremy Jackson: Ocean Apocalypse
Jeremy Jackson is Senior Scientist Emeritus at the Smithsonian Institution and Professor of Oceanography Emeritus at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He studies human impacts on the oceans and the ecology and paleoecology of tropical and subtropical marine ecosystems. Jackson is author of more than 150 scientific publications and eight books. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and American Association for the Advancement of Science. Jackson has received numerous prizes and awards including most recently the Peterson Medal from Harvard University, the Paleontological Medal, the BBVA International Prize in Ecology and Conservation, and the Society for Conservation Biology LaRoe Award for Outstanding Contributions to Conservation Biology. Jackson's work on historical overfishing and the collapse of coastal ecosystems was chosen by Discover magazine as the outstanding scientific achievement of 2001. Island Press just published his latest book, Shifting Baselines: The Past and Future of Ocean Fisheries, in August 2011.
