Cooling Down A City

The Economist's Technology Quarterly (June 7, 2007) is worth a close read.
I particularly like the story about how Canada's largest city, Toronto, cools itself-- a cool concept, indeed --bringing together design, art, architecture, city planning, civil and thermo-fluid systems engineering in a most modern way.
Hundreds, if not thousands of years ago, the wind towers of Yazd accomplished much the same purpose using even less energy.
