People with respiratory problems can be relieved by air conditioning, but the cost of owning and operating air conditioning has been driven skyward, going beyond middle class budgets. Like Lucy and the football, they keep moving the target to justify their salaries. Demanding that air and water be made cleaner than their pre-man conditions is just plain waste. The low hanging fruit was harvested decades ago, now we play a one-up game with the energy we need to differentiate ourselves from the animals.
