Another Scott Larsen video, with minor revisions to his thermal model.

Surprise, it's a $200 commercial dehumidifier in a fancy case for 10 times the cost.

I guess Snake Oil salesmen have been around for ever, the difference nowadays is that you can create a slick website that looks the same as any corporate website, and there are willing enablers like Indiegogo and Kickstarter to collect the money for you.

While the internet should in theory allow for scientific knowledge to be spread more widely, in practice it is the scammers with a financial motive that use it more effectively.

Water seers for when scammers set their sights water and something like this happens.

I am looking forward for when it goes bust and a video is done on it.

Kind of along the lines of this thread, here is a recent news article from CNN about a man who wants to bring his home-made dehumidifier to the Bahamas to help the hurricane Dorian victims, if he can raise enough money:

https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/16/us/water-rescue-foundation-bahamas-trnd/

It seems to be a valiant effort and I commend him for doing something to help. However, I kind of feel that it is highly inefficient way to do the job. Having a generator running, the energy required to produce the water, etc... in a place surrounded by water and with constant rains and tons of biomass around. Certainly a few air-drops of water should be more than efficient to help the islanders for a fraction of the cost needed to operate such a machine. I can see a biomass-burning unit having utility (generate electricity while at the same time condensing water vapour out of the exhaust). I don't know what type of machine he is bringing, but if it requires a gasoline-powered generator to run 24-7 I'm not sure it is the best way to go about it.

Why dont he buy a few big containers of water and ship them to the disaster area using the raised money, instead of wasting dollars on the  traveling for himself and his dinky machine. Much more effective help.

Just looking at some of their photos.

Don't see the shadows near the Waterseers on first picture of the homepage and with a simple image lookup they take the pictures from other places as usual, put their rubbish on it and sometimes crop and reduce the quality.
