Work rates suffer on hot days

The Western Mail reports that productivity falls sharply during hot weather. They have failed to mention that the Pope is a catholic or that bears like woods.

In reality this is a puff piece for environmentally-unfriendly air conditioning. This did not stop the Assembly installing it a few years ago to aid the comfort of their own staff. Now all employers are being urged to follow suit despite the fact that there is no evidence to support the assertion that it will reduce absence rates.

Wayne Elliott of the Exeter-based Met Office, brings some commonsense to the discussion: "We have air conditioning here, although just seeing the sun can make you want to be outside."
