If you find that constantly changing your home thermostat in search of the perfect temperature, you can save time simply by moving to East Africa. This may sound drastic, but a new study reveals that you will probably be much more comfortable than now. The study, published in the Royal Society Open Science reveals that Temperatures that Americans usually aspire to when regulating their thermostats meet conditions in Kenya and other regions of East Africa. This is probably not just a coincidence.
The study, conducted by researchers from the State University of North Carolina, initially sought to learn more about the different organisms living in human dwellings with us, including pests such as insects and rodents.
However, in the process of observing dozens of homes in the United States, researchers began comparing average temperatures and temperature changes within the environment in other parts of the world. They found that conditions that people (in America, anyway) usually define by themselves and day and night are very much in line with the outside temperatures of Kenya and other places in the same region.
Temperatures range between the top 40 degrees Fahrenheit (usually at night) and reach the mid-1
This is precisely why this seems to be something that can be discussed, but the current archaeological evidence suggests that Africa is the place where the human race originates. Remnants of human ancestors are found throughout the eastern half of Africa, so it would not be difficult to imagine that our species have evolved to fit the climate of this area.
People eventually branched into new areas using primitive technology – raw clothes, fireworks, and so on. – and today we have wonderful things like air conditioners and ovens that keep us as close as possible to our preferred temperatures.
