Why cant we use fridges to cool the planet?

We’re constantly told that the planet is getting hotter and that this is a bad thing. Why then is it not possible to collectively leave our fridge and freezers doors open to cool the planet? One fridge/freezer will make no difference but if it was done globally, would this not reduce the temperature?

        Yes they do, retard. All electrical devices generate heat, it's simply a matter of how much. Heat pumps are EXTREMELY efficient but they cannot just magic away heat from the fucking material realm. Only move it out of the enclosed area.

          >You could fill your house with refrigeretors for heating. They would be less efficient than centralized heating however.
          If you put the cold side of the fridge system outside they become more efficient than resistive electrical heating or directly burning gas for heat.

          You can expect about a 3:1 heat transfer over electrical costs until it gets extremely cold. (like below -30C)

          Less efficient? Take the fridge pill. You have to have pipes to send the hot air into space in the summer and pipes to send the cold air into the atmosphere during the winter. I thought this was obvious.

    A fridge just moves the heat from inside of it to the outside. This causes the inside of it to be cold, and it will slightly heat up the room its in. Thats why you dont leave the door open because then it has to run more to remove that heat.

        It wouldn't do anything. The air that comes in is warm, so it tries to cool it, but it just moves that heat out side. So it would just end up moving heat in a circle. Refrigerators work because the areas inside the fridge is small compared to outside and its insulated so there is little heat transfer.

          Could we build a giant space-wind elevator tube? Allowing warm air to be funneled into an enclosed space in outer space, to cool down, before descending and cooling the rest of the atmosphere (having lost energy to the void)? I mean, it's retarded as a solution, prohibitively expensive, and a standard space elevator would be far more useful to humanity... but would it theoretically work?

            Theoretically sure, but the problem is there is so much area on earth, it would only cool a small surrounding area.
            Theres actually new technology that you can buy to heat/cool you home by moving the heat into the ground with a heat pump.
            Over all the problem is that the energy needed to cool a given area is exponential as the area increased.
            If you really wanted to cool the earth, you would have to block out the sun, either with air borne particles or a giant space umbrella.
