Statement:

The Air conditioner is a machine that process to remove heat and moisture from the interior of an occupied space to improve the quality of the air. It is widely use in an occupied space such as buildings, cars, office, works and many more. The air conditioners are widely used around the world for better and comfortable sleep, reduce the possibility of asthma attacks, improves work performance, less insects and parasites and prevent electronics from heating. Although, air conditioners have many benefits for humans and some other animals it has also a disadvantage for humans, animals and especially for the environment. For humans air conditioner is a very necessary thing to have but humans don't really care about the risk factors of having an air conditioner. Air conditioner affects the human body by; the sudden changes in temperature and humidity, it has a drying effect on skin and mucous membranes, it contributes noise pollution, it transmit infections, respiratory diseases, dust and fungi can cause allergic reactions, it is associated with chronic rhinitis and pharyngitis, throat irritation and hoarseness and can exacerbate eye conditions such as conjunctivitis and blepharitis, as well as causing problems for contact lens wearers. This are some examples of a disadvantages of air conditioner for humans. For animals and environment the air conditioner releases a gas called hydro-chlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) which is a compound that is very close to chlorofluorocarbons but it includes one or more hydrogen atoms and it is also a poisonous gas that harms the human body and the environment. In other places the use of air conditioner 24 hours a day, for seven weeks and over 87% of the US household are equipped with air conditioner. The use of air conditioner is has an issue of too much consuming of electricity and strain on electricity generation industry.

Philosophical view:

Climate ethics

-This petition focuses on the climate, temperature etc. of the earth. This petition will improve the temperature of the earth and it will drop the level of pollution around the world. This is one of the choices for solving the most challenging issue in the world the climate change.

Merits:

  • The risk of having allergies and asthma will decrease.
  • There will be a low risk of respiratory disease because (HCFCs) will be limited in a certain place.
  • You will pay less on your electric bills.
  • It will decrease the pollution around the world.
  • Decrease the symptoms of dehydration, conjuctivitis, blephartis, throat irritaion, eye dryness, etc.

Solution:

Instead of using air conditioner use a electrical appliance that does not harm the environment and can keep you cool like ceiling fans, pedestal fans,wall fans, exhaust fans, reversible motor fans, polypropylene fans, electric fans and table fans. By using this kind of appliance we will have a better and healthy environment. The pollution of the earth will decrease, the temperature will drop because of the low rate of hydro-chlorofluorocarbons and the risk of respirator will decreases will also drop. 

Closing:

This petition will lead us to a better world where there is no pollution, no increase of temperature on the earth, diseases and allergies will decrease because of a healthy environment and the energy will be conserve. We people knows that air conditioner is part of our lives to have a comfortable and enjoyable place. We all care for our own health,our love ones, our lives but not on the world that we live in. The world is a big place that is full of wonderful places, wonderful views, and it is also full of pollution, full of trash. This world is our life not the lives that we have today. We all know that comfortable lives makes a person happy but comfortable world makes all the living creatures on earth happy. So, I encourage you to change the world make this world a lifelong place for many animals and other creatures of the earth. The earth is the only place where we live. It is not our responsibility to take care of the earth it is our responsibility to nurture it with our hearts and soul to make it a better place for all us not for us.
