It would seem that the tubing would not absorb enough if any real heat to the least bit effective

No, that would be a waste of time heh. I'd be surprised if you got any reduction in temps. My guess is that it'd raise temps, serving as an obstruction.

A different idea though, hehe, I like it. Maybe they're make some sort of water chilled Big Typhoon someday. It'd probably work out quite nice.
I agree-- a total waste. even if you used copper tubing it would be inefficient.
