This thesis investigates the interaction between local cooling demand and global warming and international policy strategies. The demand for local cooling, provided by refrigeration and air conditioning systems, is increasing in industrialized as well as developing countries. Because emissions of fluorinated refrigerants and emissions from the systems’ energy consumption contribute to climate change, the expected continuation of this trend gives rise to climate policy concerns. Paradoxically, global warming itself may contribute to the increasing demand for local cooling.
