This is an almighty sink generator !


I would guess that the top filter will be filled with birds in no time .
A ring of thermals might be created making a soarable dohnut?

Once the humidity rises above 90% it will be useless.

Hmmm. Pump the water up a tall tower, then let it fall towards earth again, carrying a quantity of air with it.... Hmmm. Combined with hydraulic pump inefficiencies, both pumping the water and powering the generators, I can't see much overall useful output. Then you also have the thermal-killer aspect. Double un-good.


Now take a look at this tower....

Oh yeah, baby.... A thermal and electricity generation tower.... imagine the possibilities!
