Bob, you recently gave the advice:
"If the forecast calls for a scorcher, don’t wait until the indoor heat is unbearable to switch on the AC. Instead, program it ahead of time, or switch it on manually before temperatures get too high. Doing this will save on utility costs and reduce the unit’s workload."

This is incorrect and I can prove it as a Physicist, using Thermodynamics. The argument is basically that you pay for when your air conditioner actually runs, and turning it on beforehand will not reduce the total time in which it needs to run. So please make a retraction, lest we take unnecessary Carbon Footprints into the future.
