Are you for or against air conditioning?

It's hot. All across the country. Probably will be this weekend too.

Earlier this week we talked with Daniel Engber, a writer for Slate, who defended the use of air conditioning. The vast majority of Americans have air conditioning. And a lot of you kind of love it, as you posted on our Facebook page. But there are some A/C haters too. Take a listen.

Tell us what you think on Facebook or Twitter.
