These (above) food-for-thought examples have younger and older relatives.     


     There are so many ways to generate cold without burdening the power grid, without expending more heat into the streets (something to be minimized and then eliminated) and without financially penalizing the billions of people living where both energy prices and temperatures are on the rise. There is knowledge to be disseminated, support to be shared and work to be done.
