Power from controlled Tornadoes


Louis Michaud an engineer with 24 years of experience in the energy field, wants to build a power plant the harnesses man made tornadoes to generate electricity. he has several patents on his designs and many scientists claim it is at least feasible in concept. He calls his concept an Atmospheric Vortex Engine. You can look up the Wikipedia article on it here.
Currently Michaud is trying to raise the $60 million that he estimates would be needed to build a prototype. A few small scale prototypes have already been built and tested. Michaud envisions a vortex that climbs 20 twenty kilometers into the atmosphere for the finalized plant. If it works, his "power plants" would be visible to anyone in the vicinity of the plant. And they certainly would look incredible.

    If it's working it could become a real mass product.
