Which are the pro’s and con’s of passive cooling against mechanical air conditioning?

Mechanical ventilation and air conditioning control the indoor conditions with a specific high consistency range that is independent of external conditions, whereas passive systems cannot be regulated that precisely and quickly. However, passive cooling makes proper use of the existing natural possibilities and principles, uncharged by side effects, thus simulating better the natural conditions, providing a feeling of comfort and using less to no energy.
