Description of Pictures: The Global Cooling Prize
A global competition to develop breakthrough residential cooling technology
The CSIS Energy & National Security Program, Rocky Mountain Institute, Conservation X Labs, and the Institute for Governance & Sustainable Development are pleased to invite you to the U.S. launch of the Global Cooling Prize. Announced in November 2018, the Prize is a global competition to develop breakthrough residential cooling technology.
As global temperatures rise in the coming decades, billions of people will be exposed to extreme heat conditions and will require greater access to cooling.
Drastic transformation of residential cooling technology through innovation is thus required to protect people’s health, productivity, and well-being, all while avoiding runaway climate change. The Global Cooling Prize seeks to create a global cooling revolution by spurring the development of a radically more energy-efficient cooling technology.
This event will feature discussions of this important global challenge and emerging opportunities to find scalable solutions.
This event is made possible by general funding to CSIS and the CSIS Energy & National Security Program.

Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
Connection Not Secure messages? Those warnings you get from your browser about this site not having secure connections worry some people. This means this site does not have SSL installed (the link is http:, not https:). That's bad if you're entering credit card numbers, passwords, or other personal information. But this site doesn't collect any personal information so SSL is not necessary. Life's good!
