Losing Our Cool: Uncomfortable Truths About Our Air-Conditioned World
Host Kathleen Stephenson speaks with Stan Cox, Losing Our Cool: Uncomfortable Truths About Our Air-Conditioned World (and Finding New Ways to Get Through the Summer)
Stan Cox looks at the consequences on our environment and on our health of air-conditioning in this enlightening study. He documents how greenhouse emissions increased and ozone depletion skyrocketed once air conditioners became prevalent.
He explores air conditioning as a potential spreader of contagions—of asthma and allergies and possibly even sexual dysfunctions.
