I'd say around 40-45%.  It had to have been higher in the past couple of decades as China and India have really made a dent in the last 20 years.

I like my air conditioning.

Would not need so much air conditioning but global warming is jacking up the heat.

So I need to turn down the temperature to live here in Florida. Some say when the 'big one' comes, much of the need for conditioned air in coastal Florida may be eliminated.

I'm guessing somewhere between 15 and 20%.  I would think more densly populated countries use more, but that each Amercian uses between 3 to 4 times more per person than other countries.  TVs in kids rooms, everyone charing a cell phone, lights left on in rooms we're not in.  We (Americans) waste a lot.
