What do you think about conditioning the outdoor air?

    What do you think about conditioning the outdoor air? Is it impossible? Is it useless? Is there any research about it?

    Which air? You mean, like... all of it? That's a little crazy.

    Outdoor air brought into a building is, of course, conditioned....but that seems too obvious...

    Just to be clear, are you suggesting using something like an air conditioner to cool down all of the air in the atmosphere?

    If you remove the heat from the outside air, where do you expect it will go?

    Usually, with an AC or a refrigerator, you take the heat from the inside air and reject it to the outside air.
