I Solved the Energy Crisis.
Artesian Wells. Keith told me about them, I looked it up and I begged the question. If I sunk a hose to the bottom of deepest sea would water erupt out of the other end? And if it did, we used a turbine to produce electricity, would we have power forever? It's like a power dam without the need for a river.
however, putting a turbine on the other side of some sort of retaining wall which holds back the ocean or other water, so that the turbine is below the normal level of that water and recieves controlled flowage through the wall is quite common. this operates under the same concept as artesian wells really. the output of water is below the surface level of that body of water, and is therefore pressurized.
in conclusion, your great idea for energy creation is already how ALL of our hydroelectric power is harvested. in a sense
Especially if it's a bendy straw.
