Air Conditioning As Lifeline

SNA (Tokyo) — Fans and air conditioning have long been seen as ways to keep cool and comfortable in the summer months. But global warming may now be changing our expectations about what air conditioning signifies. Japan is beginning to record temperatures that have simply never been known before in modern history. Heatstroke and dehydration are now taking an increasing toll in human lives, especially among the poor and the elderly. Access to proper air conditioning is becoming a lifeline in the new age of climate change.
