People kid themselves. Dress accordingly and you get into very little difficulty ever in a winter climate. But be trapped somewhere in the heat and hot sun for even a little period of time and you're done for.

Heat is lethal and quick. I would say more deadly. Certainly in the world many more people die from heatwaves than they do from cold exposure.
And how many people live in very cold climates vs. hot climates? The numbers are probably about equal right?

Just pickin' on ya.
