aircon 1

Sunday, walking to a friend's place in Gloucester Road, I spied this totally outrageous thing, which is about six aircon units hanging out of a block of flats (this image is just the second half ,they didn't all fit in one photo). The heat coming off them, even on a hottish day, was quite something.

Frankly, I think there should be a fine for this sort of behaviour. Or enforced common sense - I just read that in New York, where the heat is getting silly, the mayor has decreed how much electricity and for how long one should keep one's aircon on for. All sounds eminently sensible to me. When it's gone, it's gone.
