let's cut out the bullshit. try some basic equations and numbers, fred.
>the swamp cooler idea is ok...
you are a nitwit. for the third time, i didn't describe a swamp cooler.
swamp coolers work all day, and move warm outdoor air into a house. i
described an indirect system with storage that only cools at night.

which stirling engines? if nobody makes these mystical gadgets, how would
you make them in your garage with standard materials, with no little boxes
that say "a miracle happens here"? and what would their efficiency be?
if you have no idea about that, you are uselessly or harmfully blowing
smoke. your comments introduce distraction, delay and confusion here...
please go away, and don't come back until you have more practical ideas.
