In China emissions related to space cooling demand in buildings emitted around quarter of billion tones of CO2 in 2017, This corresponds to roughly one-fourth of global #CO2​ emissions from space cooling. In the case of India in the next 3 decades, the trends would be steeper or even exponential Because per capita income goes up. Air conditioners become affordable . also #GlobalWarming​ would continue due to inaction of humanity to mitigate climate change It is cold-trap that heats up. We need #climate​ action.
