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

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?
