Feds Suggest Keeping Your Thermostat at 78 During the Day, 82 at Night & Everyone's Laughing
Are you in the know about the lizard people? Did you laugh when a “conspirator” suggested to you that Reptilian humanoids are walking this Earth, gaining political power, and manipulating the human species right under our scaleless noses? Well, to all who deny the fact that cold-blooded creatures are controlling our society, you’re in for a shock when you hear this: Energy Star, a government-run program that promotes energy efficiency, recently recommended the coolest temperature we should set on our thermostat is 78 degrees Fahrenheit.
Alrighty, I don’t actually believe in the lizard people thing, and I'm sorry if this is a bit on the nose for the times we're living in, but… 78 DEGREES?!! Are American citizens not civilized, temperature regulating humanoids? And that’s arguably not the craziest recommendation from the organization. Here’s the full thing, per the official Energy Star site:
• 78° F when you’re home
• 85° F when you’re at work or away
• 82° F when you’re sleeping
As you can imagine, Twitter has some issues with this:
There's a new report out from Energy Star, which is the EPA program that promotes energy efficiency. It has new "recommendations" for where you should be setting your thermostat:— 92.9 Peak FM (@peakfm929) August 20, 2019
1. 78 degrees when you're home.
2. 85 when you're not home.
3. 82 at night.#WhatTheHELLLiterally pic.twitter.com/PRDQkPgInq
"78 degrees is the perfect balance between comfort and savings" is a little like saying "The 1986 Dodge Omni is the perfect balance between price and luxury." No, it's not.— Dan Szymborski (@DSzymborski) August 21, 2019
78 degrees? What is this, prison? 68. Summer and winter in my house.— kerry dougherty (@kerrydougherty) August 19, 2019
I turned my thermostat down to 57 just to protest this nonsense....— CarolinaConservative (@1776CC) August 19, 2019
And what do the lizard people have to say, you ask?
