I've been considering a shell script to check the environmental monitor in the room and shutdown as needed. Least critical first of course..

Some servers let you set a "shutdown temp" in the firmware. Set a written
policy that says the servers will be set to shutdown at 90 Degrees F. and/or
set it yourself in the firmware.
Once they have machines shutting down they will need to get the AC going.
