For nearly two decades, rising sea levels, killer hurricanes, and scorching temperatures have been the scary images of choice for those convinced of catastrophic global warming. But now, we can add kidney stones to that list after some researchers concluded sharp cramping pains in your lower abdomen may be the next global warming apocalypse. According to the Houston Chronicle, these scientists say that as the planet warms, people will sweat more, not drink enough to compensate, and thus develop more kidney stones. But of course, since temperatures have not risen at all in recent years and growing numbers of scientists question the whole climate change issue, this may be just another pain in the belly from global warming alarmism.
