So, Twitchy brought this to my attention. 

‘Air temperature is patriarchal microaggression’: NYT writer assigns blame for chilly work conditions

It’s referencing an article from the NY Times, which supposedly explains why women are cold in office buildings.  It turns out the buildings were designed from an old formula  ….

which considers factors like air temperature, air speed, vapor pressure and clothing insulation, using a version of Fanger’s thermal comfort equation.

PMV = [0.303e-0.036M + 0.028]{(M W) – 3.96E-8ƒcl[(tcl + 273)4 – (tr + 273)4] – ƒclhc(tcl – ta) – 3.05[5.73 – 0.007(M – W) – pa] – 0.42[(M – W) – 58.15] – 0.0173M(5.87 – pa) – 0.0014M(34 – ta)}

It is converted to a seven-point scale and compared against the Predicted Percentage Dissatisfied, a gauge of how many people are likely to feel uncomfortably cool or warm. …. … one variable in the formula, resting metabolic rate (how fast we generate heat), is based on a 40-year-old man weighing about 154 pounds.

Maybe that man once represented most people in offices. But women now constitute half of the work force and usually have slower metabolic rates than men …..

Of course, this is how the building is designed.  It says nothing towards the actual setting of the thermostat.  I promise you, no building manager, no office manager, no one adjusting the thermostat is running that formula before setting the thermostat. 

But, I digress.  These weren’t the things in the article which popped out at me.  These were ……..

Finally, scientists (two men, for the record) are urging an end to the Great Arctic Office Conspiracy. Their study, published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change, says that most office buildings set temperatures based on a decades-old formula that uses the metabolic rates of men.  The study concludes that buildings should “reduce gender-discriminating bias in thermal comfort” because setting temperatures at slightly warmer levels can help combat global warming.

That’s nice!  The jounal Nature Climate Change has taken up the evil patriarchal office conspiracy!  Because  …. Climate!!!!  Or something.  This is one of the rags the lunatics often quote when they’re pretending to understand actual science.  ……. Oh, did I say “science”?  Well, yes, I did!  Also from the article …….

But his study offers another solution: Change the formula.

The researchers tested 16 women, students in their 20s, doing seated work wearing light clothes in rooms called respiration chambers, which track oxygen inhaled and carbon dioxide exhaled. Skin temperature was measured on hands, the abdomen and elsewhere. A thermometer pill the women swallowed reported internal body temperature.

Oh, well, that seals it then!!!!  They did test 16 women in their 20s!!!!!  Measuring the temps of these young nubile college girls women on hands, the abdomen and elsewhere. 

This is what passes for climate science, today. 

Sometimes, I think if it weren’t for my morals, quest for truth, and possessive wife with a mean streak, I could be feeling up 16 young nubile women, getting paid for it, and then getting published.  But, we’re all better for this.  We all now know just a little bit more about climate “science”.

    This is total BS!!!…
    I used to work in an office that was me…and all women….
    I had to keep a parka at work….because at least one of them, on any given day…was having hot flashes!
    The would freeze my happy white ass right out of there!

    “Nature Climate Change”
    You gotta measure the woman for 30 years. Otherwise it’s weather, not climate. So, it’s published in the wrong journal.

    Also, attack the microagressions first before we get to the one-homicide-sized agression, and let’s solve that before we get to the US-sponsored-war in Syria and Donbass sized aggression. Because that way we can hone our aggression-addressing skills first with harmless stuff before we get to the serious ones.

    World war on mysogynist patriarchs setting the A/C continues in UK with the “woman” who single-handedly destroy the Telegraph, turning it into a gender activist rag.
