    With the possible return of intensive use of coal due to the energy crisis in Europe, the use of ecologically correct refrigerants in air conditioners seems to have become a minor problem Will we will see the return of smog clouds: A mix of soot and CO2, sulfur oxide, nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds. In the face of coal, even oil looks clean….

    Let me tell you, with the temperatures and the humidity this summer, they'd have had to pry the control out of my cold, dead hands.

    I did, today, turn it off and opened all the windows. Thank-God for the coming of autumn!
    This picture taken from my house. This is the Northern Puget Sound looking strait at the Cascade Mountains. The sea is so close to the Cascade Mountain ranges that the two tend to keep Western Washington cool in the summer and the Mountains block out almost all of the snowstorms in the winter.
    We have an air conditioner but the sea breeze tends yo work better; as long as there is a bug net in the windows. :)
    But I suppose with West Virginia, youd need other methods to cool off.

    Live on Long Island; we got socked with a really, really hot summer. I love the sun, but I can't take the temperatures in the upper 80s and 90s with high humidity.

    I swear it's genetics. I'm my father's daughter where this is concerned. I get fried by the sun no matter how much sun screen I wear, and I'm really prone to heat stroke. I don't think I perspire enough. Even in the shade I can't take the heat no matter how much I drink. I have to go sit in the air conditioning.

    My mother was the opposite. She would bask in the sun for hours like a lizard. She loved it. My husband and both my children are the same. I'm the one always complaining and running indoors. :)

    There is a bunch of nuclear, solar and wind in Europe. You can see a live map. Poland is mostly coal.

    The US President Trump warned Germany in 2018 that their reliance on Russian gas from Gazprom would make them dependent on Russia and they laughed at him at the time. Now Germans are stocking up on firewood.
