Traditional airconditioners are the nr.1 contributors to climate change
“The great irony of global warming is that the way we cool actually accelerates warming” (Drawdown: Refrigerant Management and Alternative Refrigerants ).
Air conditioning is the largest contributor to climate change worldwide. This is due to the massive energy consumption and the use of super greenhouse gases. And the problem is getting worse as more and more air conditioners are used. The International Energy Agency states that there are already 1.6 billion air conditioners on this planet. And this will grow to 5.6 billion over the next 30 years (IEA). That is why we consider it our task and responsibility to prevent climate change from running further out of control due to air conditioning.
