There is a reason why this is actually the most ignored physics law (it looks like some OA ship pics also ignored it as well). Even special relativity's more loved.

Maybe they really can just direct all or most heat out in one direction. Metamaterials? Could this excuse explanation be made plausible in-universe? 

Don't know why I'm working this idea so hard. It's not like I have a dog in this fight, I just enjoy "killing the wizard".
