THEME: “Air conditioning: Who does it help and who does it hurt?”
Air-conditioning homes, schools, and businesses in America consumes more electricity than all 60 nations of the African continent consume for all purposes.
Air-conditioning saves lives during heat waves; nevertheless, death rates from heat have been six times as high for black as for white populations in several Northern US cities. The huge energy demands for more routine, lavish cooling are helping to ensure that heat waves of the future will be more frequent and intense.
Most people agree on a universal right to adequate food, water, health, and shelter. But as the planet warms, how do we decide who has the right to maintain not just health and life, but simple comfort as well, using technologies that will only worsen the problem they are designed to address?
