I've wondered lately what amount of energy could be produced if the resources expended in the three Gorges Dam could have been used to construct a waterfall the coast of China, or any nation? How much energy would be developed? It may exceed the total amount of energy expected from Three Gorges, and most dams on waterways now constructed in China. What a wonderful way to eliminate the horrors now visiting China as a result of the damming of the Yangtze River. Carbon emissions would be reduced significantly, fossil fuels would also be eliminated in large part, and millions of acres of arable land could be saved along with ancient river cultures.
Has anyone even broached such a project before? I've read available info on Wave Dragon, and other small scale efforts. It would be helpful to know if such an effort (Ocean Waterfall) is physically feasible.Log in to post comments
