The catch is that traditional cooling technology is inherently unsustainable. HFC’s are the chemicals most commonly used in modern cooling appliances. Although they do not destroy the ozone layer, like the chemicals used before them, they are catastrophic for the climate as they can be up to 9000 times more potent than CO2.
Ironically, the more we cool, the more we contribute to global warming, and the hotter it gets, the more cooling we will need
This kind of vicious cycle is something our ailing climate can scarcely afford.
Action now, to install a sustainable cold chain before the traditional cold chain with its disastrous emissions can be layed out, can have immense impact.
