Big Govt 'Energy Nanny State' Tells Americans: Set Thermostat To 82 Degrees When Sleeping

• https://www.zerohedge.com, Tyler Durden

Now we get this:

[…] Energy Star, the federal program from the DOE and the Environmental Protection Agency, said the coolest you should keep your home is 78 degrees when you're home.

When you're at work or away, the program recommends setting it at 85 degrees. When you're sleeping, Energy Star said to set the thermostat at 82 degrees. (link)

Setting the thermostat at 82° at night is well recognized grounds for divorce. I swear these administrative state progressives are going to have us force-fed sustainable algae cakes if this keeps up.

Some journalist-type person published these new cooling standards on twitter, and the responses are quite funny.

"I see we've decided to give up on sleeping. Or going home for that matter. Or having pets that aren't native to the rain forest." (link)

"I've already embraced a dying Earth, so I keep my central air between 67-72 at all times." (link)

"I'd be laying there making a giant sweat angel in my bed" (link)

"New report shows these as the recommended temps for smelling like an onion." (link)

"I have no idea how my ancestors survived deserts. If the thermostat in my house showed a number that started with an 8 I would call the police" (link)
