The article focuses on the domestic textiles industry which is traumatized by the threat of global warming and the toll it could ultimately take on business. If global warming is on its way, its consequences for this business could be significant. Among the casualties could be an already depressed blanket business, the comforter business, and the hugely popular bed-in-a-bag business, not to mention snug-sacks, body wraps and throws. But the impact could be even more widespread, and cut across all product categories.
