I have some older videos we made in the late 80's.  I have just posted the one in question toy Youtube,  20 copies were originally made from the VHS movie.  We thought all had been lost until someone found 2 copird in their storage lockers recently.  One had deteriorated to where it was unreadable.  The other was saved but the quality is not excellent.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGaKytKT8XQ

From everything you say it sounds like people have hard time to believe your numbers and you feel compelled to prove them. To me, however it's strange, that not every roof in the country is reflective. Once one learns a little about solar collectors, solar gain and how much energy the Sun produces it becomes quite obvious that measures like the ones you implement are very effective.

The temperature readings indicated reductions from 36 to 53 Degrees.  The refrigeration engineer calculated that with only a 30 degree drop, that would result in a 50% reduction in BTU requirements, from 3.6 down to 1.8 BTUs per sq ft.  I have the companies statement, the engineer's statement and his enrgy calcs.  I will be happy to forward them on request.
