Question I am trying to answer:
In the popular film The Matrix, heat given off by humans is harvested as an energy source. I wondered, if this were possible, would humans be a good organism to choose? Would any other organism be better?
Question I want to ask:
Many warm-blooded organisms produce heat by metabolism. Do different organisms produce different levels of heat for the same mass of input (food)? Is there any organism that directs energy flux into heat production more than any other organism?
