Eco-friendly humidity reduction?

Anyone know a way to reduce humidity in a house besides using the A/C? It’s only about 73 in the house these days but it’s so humid you can hardly breathe.  It’s worse outside, and hotter, to boot.  Anyone have any brilliant ideas?

    I can’t think of anything off the top of my head, but I did find some wikipedia articles that may be useful:

    The basic idea: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atmospheric_water_generator

    Perhaps you can somehow integrate this into your house: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_well_(condenser)

    This looks promising: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_chimney
    If you could cool your house with a solar chimney, the cooling air should cause the moisture to condense, leaving you with dry, cool air coming in.
