Hot, dry katabatic winds, like the south foehn in Europe, the sharav in the Middle East, and the Santa Ana of Southern California, are all believed to have a decided effect on human behavior and are associated with such health problems as migraines, depression, lethargy, and moodiness.

Kenneth L. Pike
A lot of jobs today are being automated; what happens when you extend that concept to very important areas of society like law enforcement?
