What? That is totally wrong? What are you saying? That inneficiency evolved? Well it didn't! Protists, inferior animals, insects, all have the same 40% efficiency and they take heat from the environment. This low efficiency is the best evolution could come up with. If the efficiency was 90% instead of 40% IT WOULD BE MUCH BETTER!!!
