Antarctica: a southern hemisphere wind power station?
The International Polar Year commences in 2007. We offer a macro-project plan to generate a large amount of electricity on the continent of Antarctica by using sail-like wind dams incorporating air turbines. Electricity can be used to make exploration and exploitation efforts easier on Antarctica. We offer the technical specifications for the Fabric Aerial Dam and indicate some of the geographical facts underpinning our macro-engineering proposal.
