A study shows that 3 people in a conference room can result in a CO2 levels that can impair cognitive functioning in just 2 hours.

Any decisions made at the end of the meeting are made in a mentally deficient state.

@yogthos the same applies to every university lecture I've been to. and AC is either broken or completely absent, too

@yogthos we were testing out CO2 sensors at work and logged readings at 5 minute intervals over a couple of days from one hooked up in a colleagues office (fairly large office but shared by 2 people and no windows).

The level varied by well over 100% as it cycled over the day. By 4pm it could peak in the vicinity of 2000ppm.

No wonder people are about ready to fall asleep in afternoon meetings.

@yogthos
I've seen that conclusion and a nice plot elsewhere, but I don't find any reference to it in the linked paper. Do you know if the same project has additional conclusions and materials somewhere, where that result can be found?

@bmreiniger there's some more discussion in this Twitter thread about it that has some additional references mobile.twitter.com/netmanchris

@yogthos *goes to be a forest-dwelling math-hippie and have peak cognitive performance* 8>

XD :D
