I'm skeptical but as long as it's private money and not my taxes paying for it I think it's a pretty cool idea.

“Atmospheric Vortex Engine to create tornadoes about 40 meters high that can produce energy from waste heat”

What could possibly go wrong?

PT Barnum was right, there’s a sucker born every minute.

Besides, this would thing would make more money at Six Flags versus a magical energy machine.

So, basically they think the vortex will just be a more efficient heat engine? Otherwise, what exactly is generating more energy from the waste heat than a regular heat engine?

The only way I see this generating power is if the waste heat simply provides the catalyst to create a vortex that could be sustained by drawing further energy from the atmosphere’s normal temperature differentials.
