Comments on Vortex Engine - Tame Tornadoes May Generate Power
Not only could this technique produce electricity, it could also serve as a form of planetary air conditioning to counter global warming. (Read
the complete story)
|"There may be an application already waiting. "Beyond Invention" a TV Program showcased an Australian engineer who has plans for a very large solar heat / under glass with a very very tall heat rising tower to do the same thing. This tornado technique would eliminate his tower construction problem and readily leverage the captured solar heat, not waste heat from an existing facility. He may have funding already for part of his project, this might make the whole thing he's doing "within reason" financially. - fyi"

|"another altogether different solution is to create to buildings. the 1st will be twice as hi and long as the 2nd. the 2nd is placed parallelled and touching the 1st, longitudinally. Now when a normal wind passes over the entire structure, vortexes are naturally formed. Having a free moving spiraling stair case like structure, whose steppes are really blades(wing or propellar shaped) the whole thing will spin like mad. Thus the building can act as store houses or generating plants distributing free electricity into the GRID."
