Why Air Conditioning Is a Life-Saver — and a Danger
Extreme heat recently melted roads in the U.K.; hit a record-shattering 120°F in Chino, Calif.; and led to more than 70 deaths in Quebec. These cases illustrate a vexing paradox for scientists and policymakers: air conditioning keeps people cool and saves lives but is also one of the biggest contributors to global warming. Two new reports underscore the scale of the challenge. On July 16, Sustainable Energy for All, an NGO that is dedicated to clean energy and is affiliated with the U.N. and World Bank, said that 1.1 billion people across the globe lack access to adequate cooling. And a May analysis from the Internatio...

This Is How Long It Takes a Hot Car to Reach Dangerous Temperatures
In the last decade, nearly 750 children have died after being left in a hot car, and a new study highlights just how quickly that can happen. On a hot day, a car parked in direct sunlight may reach temperatures that are dangerous to a child in approximately one hour, according to a paper published in the journal Temperature. Even a vehicle in a shady area could warm up to risky levels after around two hours, the study says. Children are particularly susceptible to heatstroke. Their core temperatures rise more quickly than those of adults, and their bodies are less adept at cooling. Kids may also be unable to control or lea...
