Comfort practicalities

It’s the month of May and while the northern hemisphere is scorching in summer to some degree, Singapore is experiencing very hot weather. Maybe life’s luxuriance has gotten me slightly soft, so i have been misbehaving, using the air conditioning more often the fan. I thought of why I am not wanting to die for the cause of slowing down global warming, and the reason is because I am still a huge advocate of comfort. I remember how it felt in one of the colonial houses I have dined in the hall of. There was no air conditioning, only ceiling fans and very high ceilings. It was very pleasant, and it is as cool as it is at home now with the air conditioning turned on at 27 degree Celsius. It must be 31 degrees outside. Wonder what the engineers are doing about the heat that gets trapped in small spaces. Are they used for energy?
