I don't have any light to shed on that particular datum. However, having been involved in a major media circus a few years ago, my experience was that approximately 50% of what appeared in print was in fact wrong. (Interestingly, The Economist, which is supposed to be one of the world's top publications, was the one that was absolutely the worst--the story would have been totally unrecognizable had it not been for the names.)

I saw a tv report yesterday on Heat Pumps for 'Saving the Planet', on a national UK TV news channel. What a hoot! The dumbed down graphic showed cold water, ( blue, of course!), entering a box. Then, says the reporter, "We add the magic of electricity!" A series of yellow 'lightning-flashes' is then shown hitting the box, and out pours "hot water for the heating circuit!" ( In red, of course! ). No compressor, no motor, no evaporator, no heat exchangers, no reservoir, no circulators, no capilliary tube, no thermostats, and,... no wiring! I hope they got a patent application in first, this could prove revolutionary!
