  1. What is wrong with these people? 3 years to evaluate cooling towers? 20 years to clear the ducts?

    I could google “cooling tower” and have an answer within 10 minutes.

    I could hire some unemployed folks and machines and clear those channels in 6 months.

    Does anyone have the cojones down there to put money and effort into these problems?

    Damn.
