Nice, Nick.

I thought that Michael O'Brien's summary of the issue was pretty succinct.
I didn't mean to imply that there was *nothing *to Legionnaire's disease,
just that an unqualified across-the-board 60C requirement for water heater
set points or 100C for washing white clothes is ill-considered, wasteful,
ideological.

It isn't as if climate change wasn't also expected to expand the range of
well known diseases. Overheating our DHW is not an innocent requirement in
the larger scheme of things.
