Air conditioning is not cool

Air conditioning technology was considered revolutionary in the 20th century, but over the years, it’s proven to be devastating for the environment. Today, Recode’s Adam Clark Estes is joined by Eric Dean Wilson (@ericdeanwilson), the author behind After Cooling: On Freon, Global Warming, and the Terrible Cost of Comfort, to discuss how to rethink cooling in America.
