End seasonism now!

On a sweltering Wednesday night, my T-shirt changed from light brown to dark brown while waiting for a Metro-North train. Desperate for some relief, I was angrily reminded that the platforms' weather-protected booths only generate heat in winter, not cool air in summer.

Why must the seasonists continue to discriminate? Because people in public can always put more clothes on rather than take more off, it's far more important to provide air conditioning in these mini-shelters than heat.

Train station shelter contractors need more temperature sensitivity training.
