CWTower / Tame Storms Warming Fix Tower


The reason causes the hurricane is the increasing sea temperature, because the hurricane will get the energy from the hot and wet air over the sea surface. My proposal is a unidirectional pipe in the ocean (shown in manuscript). By the vertical drift of the maglev cylinder inside the pipe, the nutrients and cold water in the deep sea can be transported to the shallow sea to stimulate the photosynthesis of the marine plants such as alga so that more greenhouse gases can be absorbed and the carbon-absorbing ability of the ocean is enhanced. Meanwhile the outlet water can accelerate the heat exchanging to reduce the atmosphere temperature.
