The Power of a Hot Body

I've had this New York Times article by Diane Ackerman sitting around for a few weeks; it's on the subject of capturing body heat, as the French have done with the Paris Metro:

"…Savvy architects from Paris Habitat decided to borrow the surplus energy from so many human bodies and use it to supply radiant under-floor heating for 17 apartments in a nearby public housing project, which happens to share an unused stairwell with the metro station. Otherwise the free heat would be lost by the end of the morning’s rush hour.…"

Fabulous article, Lloyd, especially as Paris is not alone in this.
Won't happen in Canada unless we get a prime minister who isn't having a love affair with the oil industry, however. We live in the sunniest part of Canada, but solar heating isn't encouraged because of the preponderance of oil-patch workers living in the area.
