Let's evaluate opinions.Your claim, John, that you have thought through all the implications of your system on the wind- current- climate- and the entire ecosystem of the whole Atlantic ocean clearly indicates that you have not even started thinking about them, much less understanding them. Had you even started thinking, you would have arrived at Socrates' insight: " I know that I know nothing"
Second you forget engineering rule #1: it works, when it works. I've made quite a few things work during my career and your idea will fall by the wayside just as all other grandiose schemes that forgot about the first law of engineering: Any invention is 2% inspiration and 98% transpiration.
I've been researching it for over 20 years and have the answers and solutions.
You have done no research and condemn it as impossible or some kind of ecosystem nightmare, solely on the basis you're an engineer with no research.
It's only like having winter ocean surface temperatures but in the summertime too.
My fish population research proved that these are mostly large desert-like ocean areas where they are few fish because there is little plantation for baitfish.
My first realization was besides creating young fish habitats if we extend the pumps to the bottom of the sea that it would bring plantation up to feed plantation eaters which attract fish there for the 1st time in eons and it would increase the fish population of the world at the same time.
However, since then I researched studies of the bottom of those areas and there are little nutrients there. In some areas, it will be a benefit but not as much as I expected 20 years ago.
I've researched it you have not and still you have a non-researched authoritative-sounding opinion. How is that logical?
