Yeah, but in Summer you want it spinning counter clockwise for cooling.

In winter, have it go clockwise at a slow speed to draw air up and out to walls.

I thinking somewhere out west
We've a train yard bigger than that just north of the LA harbor area. They stage all their trains there ahead of shipping it further afield. I know we ship a lot of coal to Japan, so maybe it is our yard.

<edit> Nah, that doesn't look like either of the two at the Los Angeles & Long Beach Harbor areas.

a picture like that, you'd think Obama was losin' the war on coal

Here's a good series: http://www.marketplace.org/topics/susta ... after-coal

one of my favorite sentences' " Coal companies also blame stricter EPA water quality standards, which they argue has effectively halted permits for Appalachian strip mining."
'cause, of course, coal is more precious than water. Or air, for that matter.

Hey man, AD Group Policy can be pretty damn restrictive, and sometimes you just need some data off the computer.

Blame the IT department.

I recently taught my students all about fossil fuels and the like for a lab. I repeatedly hammered home the point that coal is the most environmentally damaging fossil fuel.

Today they had a quiz and one of the questions was asking them what fuel they'd use for a new fossil fuel power plant. I was looking for natural gas.

One of them answered coal, their reasoning being "It is cheaper, therefore you'll have a better profit margin"

I love teaching engineers.

I loved wrecking the curve in the engineering classes. There was a certain lack of lateral thinking and imagination among the students.

Its amazing how so many of them still struggle to recognize when a problem can be simply solved with a mass / force balance.
