Can't go outside on your lunch hour and walk or do something outside before or after work during the long summer days?

Sure, but people do that regardless of climate. Even in winter. Just with extra layers of clothing.

Sure, but not 99% of the day, which equals a grand total of less than 15 minutes outside every day.

I do "recreational outdoors" every weekend it's nice enough to do so, and during the week after work when there's enough daylight. Last Saturday, it was upper 30s and we went hiking for about 5 hours through prairies and forests about a half hour west of town (Lapham Peak). The lots were packed to overfill, and there were tons of people on skis (though there's barely any snow this winter), bikes, and foot. Saw birds, deer and squirrels, in addition to humans.

If it were 100 degrees or 0 degrees, I wouldn't have taken that walk. Weather does in fact matter, and I'm not sure why anyone would even try to argue against that position. The crux is what kind of weather you yourself enjoy.
