Cooling an Aquarium and Global Warming

Really?  Using a chiller contributes to global warming?  Do you mean in the 
same way that using elecricity produced from fossil fuel does, or are you 
talking about heat transfer to the atmosphere?  If the latter, I don't think 
we have to worry about it a lot, even if everybody did it. 

BTW, I spent part of the weekend a few hundred miles north of here, in an 
area that was covered with a mile of ice a mere 12,000 years ago.  It has 
been getting warmer there ever since, but it still has a long way to go, 
especially in the winter.  <g>

Good luck.
