Air con – What would i do without them!

wonder how can we survive here in Singapore without air con. And yes i do think we have become too reliant on air con this day. Frankly i can't even imagine working or sleeping without my air con on. 

Seems to me that a fan is useless in the fight against the heat. However, as this article points out would it be sustainable to consume that much energy. 

What if just what if one day we face a shortage of energy. I am really thankful that we are living in a time where we are blessed with technology and natural resources which have yet to completely deplete.

Singapore also needs to think about how the island- city-state consumes energy. Let us start with how much an air-conditioned nation it has become as the majority of the buildings are now cooled by air-conditioners. The proportion of Singapore households with air-conditioners has more than doubled in 20 years, from 35 per cent in 1993 to 76 per cent in 2013. Air-conditioning accounted for the highest proportion of household energy consumption at 37 per cent. To capture a sense of how cool Singapore has become, we conducted an informal temperature survey of popular publicly accessible locations, like shopping malls and the Changi Airport terminals.
