Less is better
Air conditioning is the cooling of indoor air for thermal comfort. In a broader sense, the term can refer to any form of cooling, heating, ventilation, or disinfection that modifies the condition of air.A strict no-air-conditioning ban was enforced for Taiwan students taking the college entrance examinations this month despite temperatures in many areas reaching 34 to 36 degrees Celsius.

Some cling to the notion that leaving their air conditioning running all day while they are at work so that they can return to cool homes actually saves on energy.Since most air conditioning units can be programmed to come on at a selected time, it is quite possible to have them cool the home 10 minutes before returning rather than running for 10 hours.

Although this long-term practice is being promoted as a pragmatic means to ensure fairness, since air conditioning is not available at all exam locations, rather than for environmental reasons, it nevertheless offers a good opportunity for the country to reconsider its addiction to air conditioning.

If students can manage without A/C in the heat of examinations, could not the rest of the population go cold turkey once in a while? If not 'Off,' then 'Down,' since air conditioners consume energy and contribute to climate change in proportion to each degree they are set below ambient temperature.

The problem with new high-tech machines is that they present a sizable contribution to man-made climate change. Cooling agents such as CFCs and their modern replacements are greenhouse gases with far more global-warming potential than carbon dioxide should they leak into the atmosphere.

This means that on hot summer days, air conditioning set to the low 20s can account for more than 50 percent of household energy consumption. This, in turn, means 50 percent of energy costs for the individuals concerned, an increased burden on the country's resources, and an increased threat to the earth's future well-being.

It is everyone's responsibility to minimize his or her own contribution to the problem.

I like Christian Louboutin,it is so cheap and practical

Yes.

I don't own an air conditioning unit, nor do most people in the UK. Guess we win.

The greatest strength is in resisting provocation.
