So, a dehumidifier with a filter?Is there a more energy inefficient way to get water than this?
>>88012261just imagine how much power it draws per glass
>>88012282And the constant noise, anyone that ever ran a dehumidifier knows it sounds like a PC going full tilt all the time.
GUYS WE NEED TO STOP RIVERSRIVERS ARE DUMPING LITERALLY A MILLION METRIC TONS OF DRINKING WATER INTO THE OCEAN EVERY DAYTHIS HAS TO BE STOPPED SOMEBODY THINK OF THE AFRICAN CHILDREN
>>88012261wasnt the moral of the first four dune books "terraforming is bad, the atmosphere should stay as it is"
>>88012308you are correct
>>88012261>computerized bullshit>"like dune"no.
>>88012261>visit carmack>"hi bro nice atmo water gen">fart next to it>a completely toxic silent-but-deadly>"anyway dude later, enjoy your water made from the air"
>>88012308Which is retarded, since that implies some kind of godly intention to how "nature" is, and the people that push this rationale are ALWAYS atheists.
>>88012352It has filters that can filter sewer water to drinking water, a fart will do nothing.
>>88012368>my shit particles will be stuck in the filter that all the water runs throughgood enough for me
>>88012261>using electricity to suck water from a 45% humidity environmentOH NONO NONONO LOOK AT THIS DUDE!
>>88012355i dont think herbert was implying any sort of godly intention, it was really the opposite. if youd read even the first book youd understand the entire point of paul's and leto II's arcs were that gods only bring stagnation and therefore destruction. the real world should embrace chaos, and chaos means not managing the environment to be in some constant, never-changing state fit only for human life, because that would stagnate evolution, as shown by leto II's 4,000 year peace
>>88012402>you shouldn't disturb NATURE because its ALIVEHow can you have this train of thought and not ascribe NATURE as a super natural/godly force?
>>88012261>Is there a more energy inefficient way to get water than this?Almost all of them
>>88012400Hello overnight nosebleeds and sinus infections
>>88012447So, collecting rainwater or literally just opening the tap water is less energy efficient than running a dehumidifier+chiller+heater+filters 24/7 to get 3 gallons per day?
>>88012446because entropy is not controlled by anything, it is not godly unless you consider chaos to be a god (the path warhammer 40k took when adapting dune)read the books, i cant really do it justice since its a four book essay on why nature is not a god, and im not really smart enough to summerise it.
>>88012282Probably draws more energy then just trucking it from somewhere.It's the biggest issue with these things.Where the machine works efficiently is in places where there isn't water scarcity. Where there is water scarcity usually means low humidity and the machine strains to collect meaningful amounts.
>>88012474Why is human intervention not part of the chaos then?You LITERALLY can't have this argument if you aren't claiming that there is A PLAN for how things should go, AKA a GOD.
>>88012464A dehumidifier already does all of those anyway except filter, which I presume runs on gravity. The only stupid part is running a dehumidifier all day at 45% ambient humidity.
>>88012527You didn't answer the question.
>put a dehumidifier In a furfag convention>turn off acLiterally bottled faggotry
>>88012261>with a filterOnly if you subscribe to gold.Why would you pay big cash to drink air conditioning water? Nigger, just clean your fridge ice and drink it. Same shit.
>>88012261These things are pretty great. I have one next to my humidifier so that I don’t have to go to the sink to refill it
>>88012501the point is human intervention creates a plan, amd there should be no plan. humans controlling nature becomes a god, and there should be no god because a plan has an eventual ending, which leads to stagnation. the entire point is to avoid that. chaos has no end, a plan does.
why are they called superhero movies if the greatest superhero in the entire series dies and loses?
>>88012576Thats like, infinite water for free!
>>88012581A plan by humans are part of the natural chaos of the universe, unless, you know, the planet/universe has a god with a conflicting plan or something.
>>88012261another case of>rich person buys into obvious scam and feels proud about it because he has enough money to not care that it's a scam, and the real value he got out of this was showing off that he's so rich he willfully lets himself get scammed
>>88012261I wonder if(even if you don't take into account the energy expense) by drying up the environment and making you more thirsty, you actually end up with a net-negative on your body hydration levels.At least on a closed environment, probably making the machine suck air from outside is much more efficient in a dry environment than from inside.

>>88012462Where I live it can get down to 10 - 20%. It's not that bad if you're used to it. Feels like I'm breathing soup when I travel somewhere humid.
Its almost $3k + disposable filters btw.https://www.ebay.com/itm/353686781147?chn=psThere are fridges that cost less than this.
>>88012605you are entirely missing the point. centralised systems of control deny change and therefore inbibit chaos in favour of a managed plan. habing a united galactic empire was this managed plan, and the reason leto II held this empire for 4,000 years was to stagnate humanity to teach them that for humanity to survive it needs to do the opposite of that. to not manage its environment to suit itself, but to adapt itself to suit its environment.there is no need for a god in this idea. a god would be organising some perfect final position, and planning for an eventual move to that. in christianity that is hevan after the day of revelation, an infinity of stagnation. harbert's books were writing to be the exact counter of this, because infinite peace and tranquility leads to the death of the psyche in a species that was born out of a need to constantly adapt and change. dune was all about evolution and avoiding anything that could hinder it, weather that be a religion forcing people to stay the same, a political movement of eugenics, or terraforming to remove the need to adapt.the whole point of dune is evolve or die stagnant. there is no god in this scenario, only ever-moving chaos.read the books.
>>8801268910%? where do you live, britain?
>>88012547You have to understand what a fucking dehumidifier does before you get to ask questions.
Enjoy the legionnaires
>>88012261Well... It's either that or swamp ass. At least this means you can drink it instead of tossing it out.
>>88012261>Is there a more energy inefficient way to get water than this?not the pointin the desert you have lots of free energy (scorching sun)hook these up to solar panelsyou have guaranteed drinking water in the middle of the desert without the need for any infrastructure
>>88013045Is John Carmack on dune?
>>88012282>>88012480This. Much more efficient to desalinate and ship clean water.
>>88012368>a fart will do nothingA protein fart has the killing power of chink fentanyl.
>>88013045Except in the fucking desert there's single digit percent moisture in the air 350 days a yearIt's not the energy usage that's crippling, it's the fact that it can't pull moisture from dry air.The fucking product page says it only works optimally at 80% humidity.Fun fact: places that have high humidity a lot of the time also rain a lot of the time
Does it have cartridges to add minerals and shit back in? It's considered dangerous to drink dehumidifier water for this reason, being devoid of the healthy shit in tap/well/bottled water. I'm assuming that's what the "filters" do, if not...
>>88012261can it run doom?
>>88012261>excited about a dehumidifier Ok.>>88012282>>88012480>On average, dehumidifiers use 0.427 kWh of electricity per hour. The most common amount of electricity that dehumidifiers use per hour is 0.548 kWh. Overall, the amount of electricity that dehumidifiers use per hour ranges from 0.23 kWh to 0.983 kWh.That's under $0.14/hr on average in the US and that's after a large year over year increase.
>>88013870Go back to redit you fucking absolute mongoloid.
>>88012261>inefficientWell I did the math for a typical small/medium dehumid.~300 watts running, 24 hours is 7.2kwhWith a typical capacity of ~10l per day that comes out to about 2.5 cents per glass, at ~.17kwhit aint perfect but if your water is shut off or contaminated and you have some way to power it, all you need is a filter and everyone in the house wont die of thirst so I have no problem with it.
>>88012678thunderf00t makes good points but my god the structure of the scripts for his videos are atrocious. He will just circle back to a previous point and repeat it without changing it several times in a video. And I can't stand to listen to him on anything less than 1.5x speed.
>>88013460All dehumids are rated for 80% optimal humidity.All their specs are for this.Also in the desert it is usually 35-40% humidity for about 8-10 hours through the night.Desert life necessitates oversizing almost everything, so if I were to go Dune mode in an apocalypse I would have a unit rated for 100 pints per day, and power it on 1000 watts of solar with 5-6kwh of battery backup.It's not impossible to dehumidify 15% 110 degree air, you just need a beefy unit to collect a functional amount of water.Even at a 24 hour production of 20% the rated capacity on a 100 pint unit, that's 9.5 liters of water and nothing to scoff at. Thats enough to cook, drink and do basic spartan cleanliness for 4 people every day, in the worst of conditions.
>Is there a more energy inefficient way to get water than this?bottled water.
>>88012689What kind of soup anon?
>>88012678>>88014229he also speaks in that condescending "are you serious" tone. fucking annoying
>>88012446You're stupid as hell anon
>>88014324Is this boomer using a filter or do her eyes just look like that
>>88012703Doesn't modern refrigerators evaporate the collected moisture back into the room? They could be using that water for a built in ice maker instead. A win-win for people living in hot and humid climates.
>>88014324>warns people about what they say on social media then says on social media that she invents ways to fire people based on what they say on social media>are boomers really this retarded?
>>88012261Reminds me of all those bullshit Kickstarter campaigns advertising a "solar powered water bottle that fills itself".The result was a tiny weak dehumidifier that generated a few tablespoons per hour depending on humidity.
>>88014373Are you dumb, stupid, or dumb?
>>88012261i didnt think the wind-traps in dune were powered at all. they are described as working like the desert mouse's ear lobes, trapping moist air and letting the water naturally condense via the heat built up on the other side of the trap.yoi might be thinking of moisture harvesters from star wats, that is also what the original post is mentioning. dune is called arrakis, tatooine is from star wars.
>>88012261What's the difference between this and licking the ice that forms on the sides of my freezer?
>>88012261We would be better off having desalinators in our homes. Pipe infrastructure that sends sea water around, a desalinator in the home powered by solar (sunny desert), that you can use for house hold water.Also insentivise having green gardens with trees as that increases transpiration and humidifies the enivronment, helping reduce evaporation rates.If you do this enough it can transform environments (see israel).
>>88014555I've never seen a more retarded post in my life, sincerely hope you are trolling.
>>88014619Half trolling.I think salt water infrastructureis stupid.But desert greening to increase humidity works.
>>88012261>Obscenely rich tech nerd living in a solar powered house buys expensive toyWhat's the problem?
>>88013874Based you could run one of a solar panel. Now someone need to create the shields so we can go back to melee based warfare like in Dune.
>>88012261isn't dry air bad?
>>88012261I think you end up paying more for electricity it's a complete scam but still cool from a tech standpoint but utterly useless
>>88012261imagine how valuable this thing would be after SHTF
>>88014944Yeah, do people think that water falls from the sky? Fucking retards, these machines would be invaluable!
>>88012368idk man what if i fart really hard though
>>88012400What if he has solar
>>88012295Oddly enough, you're right. The ocean will be fine with a tiny bit less water, and the human race will love more freshwater availability.
>>88014950>what are droughts?
>>88012355>Which is retarded, since that implies some kind of godly intention to how "nature" is>Nature took several million years to find a perfect equilibrium>Just destroy it bro, leaving it as it is means you believe in God or some shitIs this the power of American brains?
I live in Florida so I can taste the humidity in the air already
>>88014950you have never been to new south wales and it shows
>>88012261I mean you could build ones that are massive and don't require energy input. Funny enough, I was looking into this today because of the condensation on my bottle. But, these condensers wouldn't really be an issue/weird if energy was like orders of magnitude cheaper, like we got fusion working or some shit.
>>88014308steamy hot soupa sauna is a good way to experience high humidity
>>88014282>the rated capacity on a 100 pint unit, that's 9.5 liters of waterWhat the fuck is with your choice of units here?

>>88012308I've only read the first one, I thought the ultimate plan was to terraform Arrakis.
>>88013874>0.427 kWh of electricity per hour:|
>>88012368>a fart will do nothing.Psychological destruction. You'd be drinking the water and thinking about the person who farted and how you're drinking his/her farts.
>>88015729yes and the entire rest of the series hinges on how much of a galactic fuckup that was>spice controls the universe>the spice must flow>hur dur lets remove the one source of spice in the galaxyspoilers for children and heretics btw
>>88013460You would be surprised. Lima for example is located on a desert (all of the peruvian coast is) yet it almost never rains there but the humidity is unbearable. This is due to a phenomenon caused by the sea air and the andes mountains.
>>88015550Its about both, mostly about philosophy of ruling and religion and their effect on course of history. Melange is parallel to oil in some sense and the fact that you will keep the whole planet as a desert just to harvest it, even though people suffer while making few ruling class people rich and no one does anything about it as they also need the spice.
>>88012295this, but unironically
Reminds me of the dude running for California gov who wanted nulear-powered desalination plants along the coast to secure drinking water. Seemed pretty awesome.

>>88012261>Is there a more energy inefficient way to get water than this?No.All water from air things are just dehumidifiers and useless.Worse, they need maintenance if you don't want to get Legionnaires disease.
>>88013874I run a dehumidifier in an 80%+ environment. 500W is about right but I get a lot less than 3 gallons so it implies Carmack's one is a lot more powerful than 500W.
>>88016559>government bureaucracy>lineages >in detailI'll have to read them both again.
Dammit, I didn't want to learn that Carmack was an idiot. Shouldn't have come to /g/, I want to go back to being ignorant.
>>88012678I can't believe I watched this fucker in my edgy atheist teen phase.
>>88012462Yes, fuck humidity.
>>88012308I haven't read/watched Dune. Does the term "terraforming" refer to making a dead planet habitable, or changing an already habitable planet to make it more suitable for humans?
>>88012261maybe he's not into physics

>>88013874>anon asks how much kwh per glass>other anon gives an average overall consumptionGod damned retards.Dehumidifiers come in various sizes, and the most common are very small dehumidifiers to stop your home from being a swamp, not cabinet sized dehumidifiers to make gallons upon gallons of drinkable water a day.I just read 830W for this model, the Nu Water 30. Carmack said 3+ gallons a day or about 12 litres.Assuming he runs it 24/7, that's 1.66 kWh per litre of water.A glass of water is a quarter of a litre.That's 415 Wh per glass of water.ABOUT HALF A KILOWATT HOUR TO DRINK ONE GLASS OF WATER.
>have tons of sweaty sex >drink the water harvested from the evaporating sweat.

>>88012308Dune in the first place was an unnatural environment because sandworms just fucking ate and shat out everything
>>88012295Yeah. It has been the water source for civilizations for 8000 years, until (((someone))) had the bright idea to dump incredibly toxic waste in it, and kill the ecosystems to farm the land filtering river water. And pump gyphosate on farms killing every living thing, including bacteria - which is not genetically modified using a proprietary process done by the same company marketing glyphosate - on the land. All rivers now are toxic and unfit for human consumption.
>>88018526But... MELANGE!Think... which real-world species is eating and shitting out everything creating an inhospitable, unnatural environment out of their paradise planet?>>88018407^this.

My body is acclimated to 70-100% humidity, whenever I travel I feel like I am in a desert. The actual desert feels like i'm in a desiccator. When it is humid and room temperature it feels nice. Humidity is only bad if its hot enough to sweat. Why would you want a dehumidifier?

>>88021040The amount of water you would generate for the power wouldn't make any sense. You could literally sell your excess power back to the grid and buy water to get orders of magnitude more water.If, for some reason, you're in the middle of nowhere with no water sources around (lol, lmao, etc), you're better off just... bringing some water with you. They make big containers with caps on them, just bring 50 liters of water and that's enough for a family of 4 for a week.
>>88021098i'm thinking more of a future where there is no more water to buy and what water remains is rationed severely. It's already happening in Mexico, and SoCal is only a stones throw away from that reality.https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2022/08/03/mexico-drought-water-shortages-theft-rationing/
Reminder based Carmack married a Ayn Rand worshipping libertarian Asian
>>88012261I already have a dehumidifier, why not add a gravity filter for free drinking water?
>>88021170I'd imagine that's exactly what it is.
>>88019775I have lived almost my entire life in summers where humidity is rarely below 70%, I recently moved about an hour further from the beach and it's amazing.My hands get cracked but it's actually tolerable to stay outside.
>>88021170>>88021186Also dehumidifiers are basically just A/C without a barrier between the hot and cold sides, so you could also collect the condensation from your A/C and filter that as well. I actually might look into it because why not. I think it'd be pretty cool to capture water from both your car and house A/C.
>>88021133Then you'll have far more problems to worry about. Good luck maintaining your giant glowing "come steal me" markers in the post apocalypse. Dehumidifiers are breeding grounds for bacteria, hot, warm, and moist, so without heavy filtration you're not getting anything drinkable out of them. And if you're somewhere humid enough to get more than a glass a day (if you're lucky) out of one of these things? You don't need one. A tarp hung between a few trees with a rock in the middle will collect more water whenever it rains.
>>88021226>Dehumidifiers are breeding grounds for bacteria, hot, warm, and moist, so without heavy filtration you're not getting anything drinkable out of them.That's actually a valid concern. It would require filtration/clean up which is another concern. I'm confident i can scale it up to pull more water than a glass worth. I have a lot of space. What I don't have is drinkable water.
>>88012261>people worship this living soijak
>>88021226>Dehumidifiers are breeding grounds for bacteria, hot, warm, and moist, so without heavy filtration you're not getting anything drinkable out of them.Oh wow if only that wasn't a problem humans solved thousands of years ago!>filtering with soil and sand (see indian wells and coyote holes)>let it set in copper or silver vessel overnight>boiling>iodine>man made filtersIt's a trivial issue really.

Stop throwing away 120 liters because you're braindead and think you need to shower every day or the bacteria will kill you somehow.
>>88021933>the bacteria will kill you somehow.the bacteria WILL kill you eventually if you don't shower. Just a week without showering already has an impact in your health. Also it attracts infections that WILL make you, between other things, dehydrated.
>>88014324shes like a weird zelda npc
>>88022006>the bacteria WILL kill you eventually if you don't shower.I haven't showered for 6 months. Before that, I hadn't showered for 6 months prior to that. I've bathed, in my adult life, less than you do in an average week.Bacteria won't do shit. You understand nothing of biology, not bathing just makes you stinky. Clean water is what's important.
>>88022006>the bacteria WILL kill you eventually if you don't showerwhere is the proofs
>>88022006>showering is the only way to clean yourselfnigga you can take a navy shower with as little as 1 liter or just wash yourself with a wet rag like someone else said. Also, for a healthy person you definitely have to go much longer than a week to have any adverse health effects.
>>88012261Not only is it inefficient, the water probably also doesn't have any minerals which is unhealthy. Apparently in Finland they had too soft water, which was causing heart attacks and other health problems, so they now artifically add minerals to the water.>>88021040>what if you live in a drought prone region of the U.S. with several hours of direct sunlight throughout the day?

>>88022781doomedreverse osmosis is an orders of magnitude more energy efficient way to get drinking water
>>88022877That's dependent on having undrinkable water though. The device in the OP is a meme. But collecting water from condensation from stuff that's going to create it anyway seems like a good idea. Refrigerators and A/C units already collect the water from condensation, but just let it evaporate back into the air. It wouldn't be hard to simply filter that water and collect it and wa-la! Dune/star wars moisture farming.
>>88023009sea water is freeit's way cheaper to pipe it if need be than fuck around with air dehumidificationit's a pointless memesimple as
>>88023009It's voila. And the laughable amounts of condensation you get from AC in climates prone to droughts is not worth the investment and operating costs (new filters, etc.)
>>88012261Why would you want to drink shitty indoor air water?
>>88023097>>88023140Besides the fact pumping isn't free, we already use tons of stuff that creates condensation and capture it. All you have to do is store it in a tank instead of a pan and either empty it out occasionally or just pump it to your hot water heater or something (it wouldn't even need to be filtered for that)It would be a drop in the bucket (pun not intended) for the individual person, but on a large scale it would save quite a bit of water. Think of places like LA and that have shitloads of people and A/C but have water issues.
>>88023205maybe it will get done for appearancesbut it's pointlesskinda like the idea of stealing electricity and 'carrying it out' in a battery that I read on 4chinstheoretically possible, but not worth the effort for the amount you'd get
>>88023205>but on a large scale it would save quite a bit of water.In a dry climate (the only place water shortages are an issue to begin with), you would manage to reclaim maybe half a cup of water per day per household. For a city block, that's the equivalent of one toilet flush.It's not even remotely worthwhile as a water saving solution. The cost of implementation would be 50,000x more than you'd ever possibly recoup.

I don't get what the fuzz is all about.If that shitbox is efficient it chills the room in summer and if he lives in Florida or some shit it would nicely get the humidity down and squeeze liters of water out of literal thin air like it's nothing.Don't tell me the thing can't chill a room as useful side product.
>>88027022Please explain how does a dehumidifier chills the room.
>>88027334>what is air conditioning
>>88027705Please explain how dehumidifier=air conditioning and how it chills a room.
>>88022740If there was something interesting it would be how they plan to decontaminte the water with minimal maintenance and keeping the whole system not a heath hazard.Condensate is fucking disgusting as you probably know.>>88027778Not that anon but in the definition of air conditioning it puts humidity control as a part of it.In practical terms if you lower the humidity it will feel cooler than it would be at higher humidity. Especially if it's low enough for sweat to evaporate, the phase change literally cools your skin.
>>88027022>If that shitbox is efficient it chills the room in summer and if he lives in Florida or some shit it would nicely get the humidity down and squeeze liters of water out of literal thin air like it's nothing.That's literally what A/C does. See how the grass is so much greener near your A/C unit? It's from the condensation from the A/C. If you captured your A/C condensation and filtered it you could do the same thing and cool the room at the same time. The difference between a dehumidifier and A/C is that a dehumidifier isn't split by a barrier so all the heat it pulls out of the room it releases back into the same room.

>>88012261What’s worse is the water collected is deionised water, it has no mineral content , you’ll slowly start suffering mineral deficiencies.
>>88012355You have no right to interfere with Nature.
>>88028847Why? Is it SACRED?
>>88028854To many, yes. It is our duty as rational actors to preserve it and minimize the damage we inflict as much as we can and if you don't agree take your bible and go live in a toxic dump. Let's see how well your god will protect you.
>>88027778you have just asked the equivilant of "how does sunshine have anything to do with hot weather"dehumidifing air requires condensing the air to reduce the water content. to condense the air you have to cool it down. this is like grade 2 science. a dehumidifies expells cool air, albiet since their primary function isnt air conditioning they only condense by a certain ammount and usually do the condensation over a longer period of time to save energy usage.an air conditioner spits out cool, dry air unless you also have a humidifer built in.a dehumdifier spits out dry, cool air unless you also have a heater built in.simply increasing the cooling capacity of a dehumidifyer would allow you to cool a room and there are many such portable cooler units that do exactly that. having ome that ALSO filters the water into drinkable water would be really fucking neato, because usually they just spit out water that you have to empty, and i think that water is considered greywater (although i dont know)
>atmospheric water generatorYou mean like... a dehumidifier? Also, enjoy generating a single glass of water for the equivalent electricity taken to run an AC for an entire day.

>>88012703I bet those filters aren't clean or healthy to use either.Then again, none of our water filters, that don't use distillation, are. Looking at you, cheap ass desal producers that use fucking membranes on a source that is essentially a sump for microscopic life on our planet. You are pants on head retarded if you think it's good enough. Btw, desal using states in the US tended to have covid problems more aggressively and I suspect it's because they drink where they shit (because that's literally how wastewater still works, despite what people actually think about their wastewater treatment today).People have no clue just how bad things really are, because they really think our wastewater treatment and drinking water treatment is adequate. All I know is that desal is extremely noticeable compared to dam supplies and even groundwater supplies.

>>88017059I think they're talking about changing the quality of the environment rather than "bringing life" to it.I would be surprised if there aren't microbes and shit on another planet in the solar system. But we, as people, obviously wouldn't call that "habitable" to our standards.

>>88029115>air humidifier actually warms up the room wow good thing i was talking about the exact fucking opposite of that
>>88030470you are either incredibly retarded, from a third world country, or boththere is an entire product categories of portable coolers that do exactly what i described. some have a large flexible pipe that sits outside your window, some literally just blow hot air out the back so you cool one room while warming anothet. sit there and argue science all you want, i literally own a white box that sits in my corner and both cools and dries the air in my room. maybe its poweted by magic, but it uses no exhaust hose nor does it spit hot air out the back. but it does have a drip tray that i habe to empty every other day.tell me how this works. go on.
>>88030815yeah yeah yeah, it was mostly to the retard with horse pic
>>88030851this throws warmed up air outside the houseair dehumidifier doesn't have that exhaust tubethough I guess you could rig it, but it's not what the original argument was aboutair dehumidifiers and OP's device both heat up the roomsimple as
>>88030856he isnt though. it would be a really good idea and perhaps incredibly profitable to have a dehumidifier that both cools and dries your air, as well as provides drinking water. its entirely possible and im certain they exist, again i already habe one that produces non-filtered water as a by product, adding a water filter would be trivial.
>>88030866>>88030851or it could also be a swamp cooler, those kinda work in very dry conditionscan't be arsed to read your retarded posts, sorry
>>88030866>this throws warmed up air outside the house no, it doesnt. it sits in the corner of my room with its back to a solid wall and no exhause pipe. and yet my room stays cool.how?

>>88030879guess physics is wrong, call Hawking
>>88030870you are talking about air conditioningdehumidifier has both evaporator and condenser inside the house and doesn't pipe any air outsidethat's how the term is used, nothing you can do about itin essence they are all the same (reverse heat engines running refrigeration cycle - or for the very weak and inefficient one using peliter effect) but used differently
>>88030889or maybe we solved the excessive heat generation problem by compressing the air to both reduce water content and cool it down without using the peltier effectjesus man go read a book
>>88030888nonothing you say will make >>88027022 be not retardedhe was talking about OP device, and that device does not chill the roomit warms it up
>>88028847I am Nature too, just as much as deers and pines and e. coli and methane.
>>88030908No, you fucking monkey. It's really simple:water (liquid) + energy (also called boiling) = water (vapor)water(vapor) - energy (also called condensing) = water (liquid)So where do you think the energy you took out of the water (vapor) goes?>jesus man go read a bookyeah, you definitely should. Just because you don't "feel" like the thing is heating your room, it's clear it does.
>>88030879if it's that exact device in pic then it's a swamp coolerit humidifies the air and thus cools it downdoesn't work in humid climatesnow it may or may not work to make you feel better, as though it makes the air colder, it also makes it more humid, thus harder to expel heat by sweat evaporatingyou would have to compare blue area https://comfort.cbe.berkeley.edu/ with isenthalpic linesbut from memory they are more steep than the outer edges of blue area, so it should in fact work (a bit, if it's really dry)but it's also the exact opposite of air dehumidifier or the device in OP, so it's completely beside the pointnot the first time I've seen retard arguing because he can't understand what people are talking about
>>88030942>boilingevaporationboiling is evaporation in the whole volume, at lower temps water evaporates only from surface and at lower rates
>>88030969>both cools and dries the air in my room>but it does have a drip tray that i habe to empty every other day.how is that a swamp cooler man, he's talking about a dehumidifier
>>88030470This could work if you could have an insulated reservoir to dump the waste heat into that could be removed and replaced. Obvious problem being that as the reservoir temperature increase the system efficiency would decrease, so you would need something very dense, with a high specific heat, and a high thermal conductivity. Water is the best material I know for all three and it's still very limited. Metallic hydrogen would work beautifully, if it existed.
>>88030992I already wrote that I'm not reading the retard's posts, I can't stomach to read them.But he used a pic of evaporative cooler.
>>88024761>I wouldn't.laughing hard at this
All the concerns in this thread seem to center around power usage.When are we going to solve the energy problem to make this a moot concern? Are we even close?
>>88031191No because retards are putting up solar panels and wind farms instead of nuclear power plants.
>>88031210So you're saying we need to attack politicians who prevent construction and funding of nuclear sites, in minecraft, and it will work itself out afterwards?
>>88031191Never. Entropy doesn't like concentrated energy. You will always need to make sacrifices to generate it.
>>88031225No, we need to shift society's view on nuclear power in general. Getting rid of politicians would just lead to them being replaced by another batch of the same brand of retards.
>>88031225Can we bury the waste in your backyard? It needs to go somewhere.
>>88031254no, what we need is a way to deal with nuclear waste. burying it forever is not a solution.and yes, I know other forms of energy have their downsides. that doesn't make burying nuclear waste OK.
>>88031267Nuclear waste can often be reused a few times and when it's buried it becomes safe after like 100 years, so eventually down the line you can start digging up old shit and making room for new waste. There's also breeder reactors which completely use up the fuel and could be used to dispose of nuclear waste, but they're not as developed because attention shifted away from them.And ultimately it's still better than burning fossil fuel, nuclear waste is completely contained, it's not farted into the atmosphere like CO2.Lastly, power generation is advancing all the time. Nuclear is the best option right now, that doesn't mean it has to be the only option for all time. If people figure out how to make fusion work without burning up more power than it generates we can switch to that in the future. And also there's thorium reactors, but like breeder reactors those are too experimental for me to say anything too definitive on.
>>88031319Breeder reactors aren't developed anymore because they are largely restricted be nuclear non-proliferation treaties since they produce fissile plutonium.I've not seen any significant development on thorium cycle reactors since the US canned their reactor in the 50's, ironically in part because it was useless in developing nuclear weapons.The biggest hangup I've seen for developing new reactors in the US is the out of control cost and delays seen in Plant Vogtle. Lawsuits and political interference probably played a part, but I doubt that it was the whole.
