SELECTED IDEAS OF BUCKMINSTER FULLER
CONCLUSION: ENERGY
FREE AIR CONDITIONING

In 1940 R Buckminster Fuller discovered a way to cool buildings using only the natural thermodynamic laws of nature.
The warm air thermal rising above a dome would pull warm air out from large openings around the bottom of a dome,

 thereby pulling Bernoulli-effect cooled air in through a relatively small opening at the top of the dome.
