Close the fridge door on your way out 

Learnt on a recent tour of the Cadbury chocolate factory: chocolate melts at around 32 degrees celsius - therefore it is generally necessary to spend a lot of money refrigerating it. Not in Dunedin, nature's refrigerator. They just store it all in a big metal warehouse, with the doors open and a bit of insulation under the ceiling. Unfortunately, the residents of this town are stored in much the same way.

The World Health Organization recommends an indoor temperature of at least 18 deg C to avoid respiratory and circulatory health problems. In a 2004 study, most surveyed living rooms did not reach 18 degrees over two weeks in June and July, and more than half did not reach 12 degrees. The average living room was 3-4 degrees warmer than the outdoor temperatures (of 6-8 degrees), while bedrooms were only 2 degrees warmer.

Might as well be living in tents.
