Emissions Of SO2, NOx, & CO2 Increase Considerably With Each Degree (Celsius) Of Temperature Rise During Summer, Thanks To Air Conditioner Use

Owing to the widespread use of air conditioners, emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), and carbon dioxide (CO2) increase substantially during the summer in the US (and surely elsewhere) — air conditioners use a lot of electricity. As global temperatures increase, that means many more people are turning on (and buying) air conditioners, which then increases the electricity production that is a leading cause of global warming.
