Global Warming as Birth Control

So much for hot sex. A recent study purports there are fewer births nine months after a heat wave. It found that an increase of about 21.600 Fahrenheit in summer temperatures reduces births the following spring by up to 6 percent. Researchers at the Kinsey Institute for Sex Research concluded that high temperatures could reduce people’s sense of well-being, which could result in a reduction in sexual interest. Another study found lower sperm counts and higher rates of miscarriage during hot weather.

My mother always told me there's a reason why we see lots of folks born in September or around then. Just count back nine months.

See? My mother said it was all about newlyweds not necessarily having a lot of money but needing to keep warm. Haha
