    Yeah, like I'm going to click on the read more button, LOL.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    Just more click-bait sensationalized "reporting" by Fox. It's pretty clear they didn't even read the study. If you actually read it, the author of the study even acknowledges that air conditioning is important sand saves countless lives. But Fox being who they are, wanted the study to sound as ridiculous and absurd as possible. What the study said is far more nuanced than just "air conditioning will kill people."
    The study forecasts an additional 13,000 human deaths annually caused by higher summer levels of fine particulate matter and 3,000 caused by ozone in the Eastern U.S. by mid-century. Most of those deaths will be attributable to natural processes like atmospheric chemistry and natural emissions, which are affected by rising temperatures. However, about 1,000 of those deaths each year would occur because of increased air conditioning powered by fossil fuel.
    "The pollution caused by air conditioning may cause up to 1,000 deaths/year in the future" is certainly a lot less provocative than Fox's headline of "Can air conditioning kill you?"

    Or the headline:

    "Air conditioning saves thousands of lives during recent extreme heat wave"

    Fox was reporting on the story, they didn’t do the story, and don’t forget it was Obama that said a/c was America’s number one enemy.

    What do you mean they didn't "do the story?". They wrote that news story! They directly linked to a summary of the study. Fox misinterpreted what the study said, and then came up with their own inflammatory headline and inane article that implies something the study never actually said.
