5223[CF] Re: Air Conditioning, Cars, and livable places
- Jun 4, 2002Perhaps "Their share" was a poor choice of words. My comments were
directed at the original poster's implication that the people of the
south waste energy through the use of air conditioning, without
his considering equivalent energy use for heating. In my view, both
uses are equally defensible (or indefensible) uses of energy. Just
because the technology for heating has been around longer doesn't
give it any particular priority.
