THEME: “Air conditioning: Who does it help and who does it hurt?”

A smorgasbord of gourmet pesto, including vegan!

Tomato sauce will about for non-pesto-eaters.

The 19th Annual Great Green Pesto Feast is one of the best vegetarian 
dinners in St. Louis. Stan Cox, senior scientists at the Land Institute 
in Salina, Kansas, will speak on the promises and perils of air 
conditioning.

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?
