In my last post [livejournal.com profile] symbioid posted a link to a NY Times article on the increasing temperatures in the US.

The map for 2100 shows most of the US will have 5+ days of 100+ degree temps, whereas right now most of the US barely reaches 100+ ever.

This looks bad, but it looks even worse when you lay this data onto my "Ownable Land" map. This is because a lot of those areas that will stay cool in the US in the coming 80 years are not ownable, and thus not livable (much of them are mountains).

I've made a new map here to show this. The blue areas are the ownable land in 2100 that will have <5 days per year with 100+ degree temps. Looks like property in Door County would be a good investment long term.
