Just, Nichols, and Dunn evaluated indoor climates across the United States. They studied “indoor climate data from homes . . . across the USA. We then compared these data to recent global terrestrial climate data (0.5° grid cells, n = 67 420) using a climate dissimilarity index. . . . On average, our study homes were most similar in climate to the outdoor conditions of west central Kenya. . . .
