That’s very true. I keep my house at about 80-85F in the summer time. I have a hard time when I go into a refrigerated building. Your body really does adapt.
Rather than working to outlaw airconditioning, we could do as Japan did. That is: set minimum temperatures for public buildings. I think Japan set their minimum at 80F. They said that it took them awhile to get used to it but they learned to wear appropriate clothing for the heat and that spawned developments in the clothing industry to meet these new demands. Ultimately, everyone adapted and gets along fine with it. Anyone crying about the heat is just being a baby. Now Japan saves a lot of money since they aren’t using as much energy to unnecessarily refrigerate their public buildings.
However, yesterday the cooling system in our public health dept broke down and the building got up to 90F. Someone did faint. So they sent us all home and closed the building till they could get it fixed. There’s more I could say on this but I need to go for now. Read up on Japan’s experience.
