    My core idea on reversing climate change is on a web page. Google 'creativebuoyancy'
    The total system, called 'Creative Buoyancy", extracts hydrogen from sea water using the natural tension between atmosphere and ocean.
    If you have time to look this over, I'd appreciate your option, favorable or otherwise.

    Please show calculations that demonstrate the system can generate sufficient energy to sustain the processes you describe at an economic level.

    As described, you plan to generate this power by having a floating (airborne?) device essentially blown by the wind, drag a submerged item through the water, its movement generating power through a turbine. And this power is sufficient to produce hydrogen by electrolysis and cryogenically liquify the hydrogen, which you then - presumably - have to tow around with you.

    I can think of at least thirty seven reasons this won't work. Your mathematical treatement could convince me I am mistaken.

    This tension arises from the transfer of momentum from wind over water to the water. By putting a fully submerged vehicle within each fluid, the natural momentum transfer is split between the two vehicles, each of which has turbines for its respective fluid. The tether between the vehicles allows both to remain steady while each fluid moves past, turning the turbines..
    Think of a kite tied to a sea anchor. The kite would pull the sea anchor slowly downwind.

    Fair enough. I'll forward it when finished. Walt

    OK, John, here's my crack at it. Your feedback, positive or otherwise, is welcome.

    Unfortunately, the Forum system won't let me upload the .docx file, saying the file is invalid. Converting it to a doc file loses the equations. Can I attach it to an email to you? Mine is wmckeown@mcn.org.
