How to use temperate in a sentence?

    Cities that are used to more temperate climates, like London, are finding it very difficult to cope, places which experience cold winters tend to worry more about insulation... but of course some of the measures you design to keep heat in during the winter can prevent heat escaping in the summer, making it even more of a problem.

  4. Thomas Paine:
