Air Bubbles to Tame El Nino's Storms?
Can a few bubbles of air, released under water, save your property
from the effects of El Nino? 'Yes,' says Dr. Win Wenger, an inventor
and author who has released into free public domain two different
inventions which use air bubbles to create remarkable effects.
Win Wenger, Ph.D., has posted his Beachbuilder invention (at http://www.winwenger.com/beachbuilder.htm)
on the world wide web, in detail. Briefly: drill holes in a few
lengths of hose or pipe, suspend these underwater by buoy and anchor
just before a storm, a few yards offshore. Connect these to an air-compressor
to pump air through. The resulting curtain of air bubbles will stop
the violence of the waves, though it won't stop the high water.
Beachbuilder's curtain of bubbles will also, according to Wenger,
help deposit beach sand for many yards of fresh new beach instead
of letting the storm erode your beach away. "The bubbles," says
Wenger, "slow the water and make it drop its sediment load, much
like a snow fence slows the wind and makes it drop its load in its
lee before the snow can drift and pile over the highway."
GBD.com without it costing you a dime. Learn
stop the high water is another invention, one which dampens down
the storm itself. The Wenger Hurricane-Stopper, by releasing air
bubbles from deeper, colder layers of sea water which underlie the
warmer surface waters, makes the waters "turn over," bringing the
colder waters to the top and starving the storm of its main source
of energy and juice.
"With a true hurricane or typhoon the effect is more complete and
immediate than it will be with an El Nino storm. Hurricanes can
only feed from waters 80 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer. El Nino storms
draw their energy from a wider range of conditions." But the Wenger
Hurricane-stopper can dampen at least somewhat the violence of the
storms which otherwise would inflict, according to some, $40 to
$60 billion in damage to Southern California. Nearly all that loss,
Wenger believes, can be avoided. Even so, he says, the Hurricane-stopper
has to be used sparingly and temporarily, when and where a storm
is brewing or moving and not otherwise, because we don't know what
effects would happen from a major, prolonged interruption of the
El Nino currents.
Is There Time?
These 2 inventions
are so simple, so easy to deploy, that there is plenty of time between
now and January to have them in place, if someone starts soon.
Like Wenger's Beachbuilder, his Hurricane-stopper is also displayed
on the world-wide web, free for anyone to use. (See http://www.botree.com/articles/hurricane.htm)
Dr. Wenger is the author 45 published books including The
Einstein Factor, -- all about problem-solving techniques
and the Einsteinian mental experiment; and Beyond Teaching
And Learning: A Method for Personal Growth & Development.
--describing methods for greatly improved and accelerated learning.
Arriving any day will be his new book of techniques for invention
and scientific discovery: Discovering the Obvious.
Wenger has been teaching creativity method for 30 years and "practicing
at least a little of what we preach!"
He has accumulated so many inventions he felt he felt a need to
give these away, to help a lot of people. He is giving inventions
away to publicize what he sees are some needed reforms in the patent
system. (His proposed patent system reform is posted on the world-wide
web. See http://www.winwenger.com/patentproposal/htm. Dr.
Wenger says "These inventions are yours. You don't need to
the inventor's permission to use them, or even give him credit for
their use. I've made them freely available to help people protect
from damage and harm. You can download the details directly from
Internet. If it helps even one person even a little, I'll be a happy
man." A catalog and nearly all his books are available from Project
Renaissance, Box 332, Gaithersburg, MD 20884-0332. email@example.com
