I think an over-looked application is actually refrigeration, preservation of food, and energy storage. Air conditioning is a good secondary use after first being used for refrigeration. Also air conditioning (cooling) can be done with cooling tubes buried underground in conjunction with solar towers, but it's hard to find an alternative for active refrigeration (freezing) to preserve food year-round. Root cellars work, but not in Louisiana where I am. Bill Mollison said in the video that a property of compressed air as an energy storage medium is that the energy doesn't degrade over time and can be distributed without losing power unlike electricity. I can imagine large banks of low-pressure air tanks for storage and networks of piping throughout a community for distribution.

Once I force myself to take a dozen wobbly, fearful baby steps on some project, I can then begin to stride out fairly well. It's not that I'd label myself a failed dreamer or a non-self starter type. It's just that I'm hesitant in the beginning. But ya know, here I am 15 years later with a 20 acre homestead farm. That's cool! And guess what!......I'm no longer afraid of failure, of being wrong, or of looking the fool. Working on my dream has been good. Not without bumps, but good none the less.
