  1. It was interesting to learn that Ben Franklin was kind of the founder of discovering evaporated cooling. From what I understand he took pieces of cloth of various colors, cut them to the same size, and laid the squares of fabric onto a layer of snow and waited to see them shrink as the snow melted. I more interested to know how we can use this to improve energy efficient cost with heating and cooling. evaporative cooling
