Will Our Rich People Be Baked To Death In Their Fancy Glass Apartments?

"The skyline of New York is dotted with new glass condominium towers featuring some of the most expensive and sought-after apartments in the city. But a new study is warning that there could be a price to pay for the grand views: Some high-rise apartments could become as overheated as a hot yoga studio in a prolonged summertime blackout, similar in duration to the one that followed superstorm Sandy."

i think you've pasted the wrong link. the right link is the article in the wsj titled "study: glass condos could pose health threat through overheating". unless there's a deeper connection between the war on the 1% and glass condos that i'm missing.

@trawler Grrr. Allegedly I have been doing this for over a decade, but you wouldn't know by my performance on any given morning. Fixed, thanks

Not to mention the amount of energy it takes to cool them down on a normal, non-blackout summer afternoon. Not efficient!
