Will Our Air Conditioners Kill Us?

Will Our Air Conditioners Kill Us? The hotter the earth gets, the more societies depend upon air conditioning. But AC dependance means more dependence on fossil fuels. Vast scientific consensus warns that fossil fuel dependence is harmful to an environment conducive to human life. A new study estimates that by 2050, increased AC usage will cause approximately 1,000 additional deaths. Per the study, this could amount to a $9 billion annual drain on the economy. The estimate is based on models that contain a great deal of uncertainty. But it's a cautionary exploration of the danger of increased fossil fuel usage. Jonathan Patz, study co-author
