Using the air conditioner all the time will make you less toleret to the heat, making it seem all the more hotter when you eventually have to venture outside. I have noticed this especially with people who grew up with air conditioning. And when every man and his dog runs an air conditioner in the confines of Tokyo's high-density neighbourhoods, it just makes the surrounding air even hotter, especially on still nights. And what, with a hundred million people all running a now "essential" air conditioner to keep themselves cool from the added heat from everyone else running an air conditioner hey, we need a few dozen nuclear power plants just to keep them all going. And we all know what a fine mess that led to.
