Ooo, Dr. Paul's trying to creep us out! Are ya a-scared yet? You'd think a medical doctor would have a better bedside manner:

"A lot of old people in Georgia and Florida and all out throughout the southeast and the southwest are dependent on air conditioning just to live. And if their electricity bills go sky high, as the energy tax is gonna make it happen, if that ever passes there are a lot of people that can't afford to run their air conditioning any more and a lot of people are gonna have a hard time with hyperthermia is what I call it - what we call it in medicine as a medical doctor - which means that their body temperature's gonna go up, they're gonna have dehydration, and people are gonna have a lot of problems. And it's gonna have a greater impact on our health care system and people are gonna die because of that. But it's gonna kill jobs too."

Oh right, jobs too. But more importantly: constant human death.

Aren't "medical doctors" supposed to be smart enough to have made it through medical doctor school? How'd Dr. Paul ever get beyond the commissary?

    Whatever did humans do before air conditioning?
