If it takes so much energy to keep systems cool, why not build data farms in Alaska and just pipe in the cold outside air?


that is absolutely not a stupid idea.

The only thing is you have to concider whther the transportation costs to build data farms and such in alaska would be more expensive than just building in built coolers. Also--all the managers and fixers of hardware would also have to be stationed there to service the data farms---which would be more expensive because then you would need localized highly trained personnell--this may be more expensive than just having small in built coolers--

but it is definitely a good idea--It would save a lot of energy.
