I rode in the Texas heat, with a full face helmet all summer. I did get a new Scorpion Exo helmet and surprisingly, it wasn't that hot. I'd stop at a light and you could see the sweat form on my arms, but my head stayed cool. I rode with the visor up, and that helped a bit. But to get home after riding in the 110º heat and still have a dry helmet was pretty amazing to me.
I work smack dab in the middle of downtown Dallas, so I can tell you a little about traffic. A few places I've learned there are more problems than others, and made adjustments for them. The biggest problem I have is with the city buses. Apparently, red lights, right of way and lane changes are something they've been told to ignore.
Global warming? So what if my kids never see a polar bear. I never saw a dinosaur and I'm ok.
