The anti-air-conditioning movement kicked into full swing in July, when we learned from far-left socialist outlet Jacobin that air conditioning is “class war” and that “millions of you are suffering in overly air-conditioned workplaces right now” because the owners control the temperature.
We also learned last year that air conditioning is “notoriously sexist” when former gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon asked that the debate hall be kept at 76°, while her opponent Andrew Cuomo wanted it “arctic.” And then are always plenty of opinion pieces arguing that we don’t need air conditioning at all and should just give it up.
Jennifer Titus, an investigative reporter at Tampa’s WTSP, has shared a new report that gives recommended settings for your thermostat, although they don’t seem to be personalized by gender or class status.
How cool do you keep your house?
New report our shows these as the recommended temps for energy efficiency:
• 78° F when you’re home
• 85° F when you’re at work or away
• 82° F when you’re sleeping pic.twitter.com/iNOSaqX35c

We don’t know about you, but if it’s 82°F, we’re not sleeping.
Yeah no https://t.co/aIu8Zyyo6Z

I want to live in an air conditioned space. Not a sauna.

They can have my 68 degrees when they pry it from my adequately cooled, dead hands

I recommend they keep their recommendations to theirselves.

She's anti science. Science teaches us the best sleeping temperature is 68⁰

I’m thinking a woman wrote that report. No way a man can function in that temp regularly.

It always starts off as a harmless “recommendation.”

Thermostat Police, A new government agency?
— Wayne Lemon (@WayneLemon7) August 19, 2019
Wont be long until the government will be taking control of the thermostat when they believe we are not using it efficiently.

I monitor my energy as much as the next responsible person and this is far too extreme.

I only leave my AC at those levels in my home while I’m traveling in my private jet to climate change summits.
