Not that they did last year before this carbon (dioxide!) tax madness really gained some traction.
Anyway, no aircon… unless it’s over 28C. But that’s 28C outside, and they never account for the oven effect in the classrooms. In a building designed 90 years ago (yes, it survived the Korean War), eco-solutions towards breeze and the like weren’t exactly as well thought out as they are these days.
No aircon. It’s all because of, you know, save the planet, global warming blah blah blah. No worries they paid thousands of dollars for the aircon units they barely use, it’s government policy. No worries about all the cheap energy they have in Korea, soon to be made more expensive by an insane Gillard government… even before there was an energy crisis.
I can’t even blame the school I work at. It’s out of their control (*groan*).
Yes, it’s likely a case of ideologues in offices, far removed from the trenched, dictating the “war”.
They only basic* improvements I can see on the following is chunks of dry ice added (shh, don’t tell anyone what it is) and copper coils on the back, too.***
You fuckers who think you’re saving the planet are being played by the man.
*Naturally, real improvements have been made. They’re called airconditioners… which we have…which we don’t use… etc. etc.
**The “Only 2% of Korea’s Electricity Comes From Oil!” link from the link has been moved here.
*** Two reels off copper 1/4″ tubing would require 4 vinyl 4″ tubes, which would require 2 fishtank water pumps, which would require 2 power outlets. No doubt this will end up highly more inefficient than the damn aircons they have but don’t use, yet I’ll probably be praised for saving the planet.
If I could fit a regular wood trolley with those rubber pram wheels, and add handles… it’s gotta make a flight of stairs… then it should be able to cover most terrain. The coolant would have to be carried in a separate bag. Geez, some Mars Land Rover wheels would be handy. And a motor.
This needs to be as portable as possible.
Will car coolant fuck a fishtank pump?
