Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion

I have been trying to draw some diagrams to explain what I think we should be doing. I will scan these and post them here in the next day or so.
Meanwhile, here is a link to similar minded thinking displayed on Wikipedia.
Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion

  • A thing to remember is that none of this is rocket science!
    This is all doable with technology already available and very well understood.   
  • As the Wikipedia article shows, this is a 'base load' technology; it will just hum along in the background for ever and a day. This power source will keep insulated ice in a frozen, solid, less-dense-than-seawater, state for hundreds if not thousands of years. 
Notice that the authors of the article are pointing to all the things I have mentioned in the description in the side panel at the right hand side of this blog page
