Atlanta

weather:

approximately 63F deep soil temperature ( versus 53F for where i am in NJ )

so about 10 degree gain for geothermal heating.

Atlanta vs NYC

winter temps also about 10 degrees lower in NY than Atlanta

hitting about 65F indoor temp in winter using geothermal heat pumps in Atlanta should be relatively easy … about 50% harder to do the same in NY / NJ

this is my wild ass guess, not based on any formula, i have to research that still …

but basically in winter:

in NY __ you have to go from 30F outdoor / 53F deep soil to 65F indoor
in Atlanta you have to go from 40F outdoor / 63F deep soil to 65F indoor

it’s a much longer reach in NY …

once you hit 65F or so indoor you can make yourself comfortable using portable heater next to you, heated bed and so on …

we are going to have to give up on the idea of heating the whole house to 75F - that simply isn’t realistic in the Biden area of pipeline sabotage …

we will have to come up with creative solutions for local / directed heating such as for example having some heater in the shower that you use only while showering and so on …

ultimately these problems are solvable - you just have to keep the house warm enough to keep the water pipes from freezing and bursting … something much easier done in Atlanta than NY / NJ …

Tree Fest !

this is important …

trees provide shade and grass moderates heat …

this makes it possible to survive in the south …

you want to be in the south to have access to solar power and to not have winters so cold that when they turn off the gas you freeze to death …

so just plant more trees you say ?

it’s not that simple.

you need the right soil, precipitation, zoning etc …

so far Atlanta has:

  • One of fastest growing Cities, States and Regions
  • World’s Busiest Airport ( 80% of US population lives within 2 hour flight from it )
  • World’s Largest Aquarium ( gives black people the illusion they are able to swim )
  • Most Tree Cover

Piedmont Atlantic Megaregion:

ok this is remarkable

  • every mayor of Atlanta since 1879 has been a Democrat

  • in 1970 Atlanta gets their first Jewish mayor

  • the next mayor in 1974 is the first Black mayor

  • every Mayor since has been black … including two black women

WHITES AND REPUBLICANS NEED NOT APPLY LOL

but you know what’s also remarkable ?

despite 150 years of democrat mayors and 50 years of Black mayors as well as Majority black population in Atlanta when we hear of crime it’s usually NYC or Chicago not Atlanta - why ?

low density …

Yes crime is caused by blacks but also by packing people like sardines …

the crime in NYC is mainly due to extreme density that completely replaced cars with mass transit …

in Chicago the crime is due to combination of 30% black population and relatively high density …

Atlanta is 50% black … but density is low …
