I know most of the Heat Waves and triple digit temperatures are starting to subside, I was interested in ways to combat temperatures that go extreme. Looking down the pipe as we are getting record temperatures that are getting higher each year all over the world (no global warming topics) I was wondering was around combating the oven style heat environments with temperatures at night time of 98 degrees and triple digits in the day. I know the use of light, loose cloths (like they use in the desert is a start and water laced headbands, or wet rice in bandannas) So the question arises, What are some ways of combating a heat environment with no AC available and limited water sources (no mist fans). Remember you will need sleep at night (like being in a oven)so light cloths won't affect you at night compared to the days when the sun is out.
