Dutch authorities have decided to lower the temperature in all public sector buildings by 2 degrees to make the country less dependent on Russian gas.

“Our energy bills are increasing, we must become less dependent on Russian gas, and we want to fight climate change,” an announcement from the government, mentioned by the news agency ANP on Saturday, noted.

The authorities have launched an advertising campaign in which residents are encouraged to lower the temperature at home to a maximum of 19 degrees.

“Wear a warm jacket or sweater, socks, and slippers,” the message reads.

    Gone are the days of sitting around in your swimwear and surrounded by tropical plants. People are healthier in a cold environment than in a hot environment, and you will acclimate.
