Climate Change Kills the Mood: Economists Warn of Less Sex on a Warmer Planet

Climate change has been blamed for many things over the years. Never, until now, has anyone thought it was possible to see it as a kind of contraceptive.

Hot weather leads to diminished “coital frequency,” according to a new working paper put out by the National Bureau of Economic Research. Three economists studied 80 years of U.S. fertility and temperature data and found that when it’s hotter than 80 degrees F, a large decline in births follows within 10 months. Would-be parents tend not to make up for lost time in subsequent, cooler months.

    yup young people were not buying global warming so now the best way to get buy in is to tell them if they don’t support it they will get less sex.

    yeah that explains the huge families in smoking hot muslim sandbox countries. no wonder they call it the dismal science …what a bunch of twats.

  • simus1

    These idiots have to be the last people on earth anyone should pay any attention to.

  • Alain

    The truth is just the opposite. Warm climates tend to increase the sex drive, so this is just more propaganda.

    • Exile1981

      Well cold weather increase the time people spend in doors which increases the quantity of sex between couples.

    • Clausewitz

      Just looking back to the 70’s, sauna’s were a great place to engage in the horizontal Mambo. But I guess I’m just an old denier.

  • Those pathetic charlatans are getting desperate. I don’t see any shortage of sex activities during spring break trips to Mexico or among the native tribes in equatorial Africa.

  • 2maxpower

    that is probably why the populations are so small in the regions of the equator. will the leftists/socialists/communists even try to be a little less retarded.

  • Ron MacDonald

    What a bunch of crap, I’ve never had a problem with my sex drive when sailing the Caribbean and the South Pacific.

  • Xavier

    Horse. Shit. Nothing stops teh sex.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Wet sweaty sex is the best sex.

    Aha! So that’s why the babes keep saying “no” to me: Climate Change!

  • Xavier

    “National Bureau of Economic Research”. Who do they work for?
    Smells like propaganda for the upcoming Paris climate talks.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    They must have been watching “Kiss Me, Kate.” (The studio that produced this censored the Broadway lyrics.)

    • Clausewitz

      First time I saw this at about the age of nine, my collar was steamy hot, and I think I started puberty.

  • Mal

    Never mind hot weather, I have a suspicion, amounting to a conviction, that it’s actually “progressivism” that leads to diminished coital frequency.
    Fingers crossed, anyway.

    … correlation is not causation, rinse, repeat, correlation is not causation …

  • Bataviawillem

    You would not say so, if one looks at the birthrate in the hottest parts of africa.
