Well, that explains a lot.
Recent studies have shown that people who work office jobs are beginning to feel the climate change burn as well. In fact, it's causing an actual poison to build up inside of workplaces: carbon dioxide. A recent Harvard study shows that heightened levels of CO2 (the byproduct of industrialization and bitching hairstyles) can have an adverse effect on productivity. Breathing in CO2 levels above 1,000 parts per million (ppm) in the atmosphere can bring about a sense of fatigue and even corrode our decision-making processes. In other words, too much CO2 makes our brain sacks not idea so great. That's bad news for offices, which can house up to 1,200 ppm. However, this is even worse in schools, where carbon pollution can reach up to 2,000 ppm, and airplanes, which go up to 4,000 ppm when grounded. However your political party dictates you feel about scientific fact, we can probably all agree that children and pilots are two demographics we definitely don't want to be slowly poisoning.
"Alright folks, if you don't mind, I'm gonna try and get a little shut-eye as we drift into Dulles."
But what causes this massive buildup of CO2 in large buildings? Ironically, the answers lie in how they tried to counter the effects of climate change to begin with. Buildings have become more and more isolated in an attempt to cut the costs of heating and air conditioning. However, isolation goes both ways, trapping plenty of bad chemicals inside of the building -- which is sometimes referred to as "sick building syndrome." If we want to find where this influx of CO2 is coming from, we needn't look any further than our own disgusting bodies breathing out a bunch of carbon dioxide in a borderline airtight structure. Just having a large concentration of people breathing on one another can cause CO2 levels in office buildings to double, causing everyone inside to become a bit dumber. It seems a bit redundant to say in 2017, but mouthbreathers are going to be the death of us all.
