Summary


One of the most dangerous projected effects of global warming is sea level rise. It is believed unmitigated global warming will cause sea levels to rise over at least the coming century. Increasing temperatures result in sea level rise by the thermal expansion of water and through the addition of water to the oceans from the melting of continental ice sheets.

Few countries, aside from The Netherlands, have the physical capacity to protect against long-term sea level rise and since greater than 75 percent of the human population lives within 60 km of a coast, it is important therefore that sea level rise be limited to the greatest extent possible to minimize loss of life, and economic and ecological impacts.

The foundation of the GWMM is a geo-engineering technique that would use renewable energy sources to desalinize ocean water to irrigate the major hot deserts of the world.

The present invention is concerned with sequestering CO2 and water, and, more specifically, to a method of sequestering CO2 and water in a desert environment. Another concern is the maintenance of sea levels near current levels to prevent inundation of inhabited coastal areas, more specifically, to a method to convert the heat causing thermal expansion of the oceans to a more productive form of energy.

An objective of the present invention is to provide a viable, economic and commercial means of stabilizing the level of the world’s oceans to prevent inundation of many of the world’s populated coastal cities.

Another objective of the present invention is to provide a viable, economic and commercial means of curbing the CO2 build up in the atmosphere, which is believed to be contributing to global climate change.

In some embodiments of this invention energy, in the form of heat, is removed from the ocean to reduce thermal expansion of the oceans.

In some embodiments of this invention solar energy is harnessed.

In some embodiments of this invention wind energy is harnessed.

Another object of this invention is to use carbon free, renewable energy sources to desalinate ocean water.

Another object of this invention is to use carbon free, renewable energy sources to pump water into a desert

Another objective of this invention is to grow commercial products in the Earth’s hot deserts.

Another objective of this invention is to convert the hot deserts to economically viable carbon sinks.

Another objective of this invention is to enrich hot desert soil by composting none commercial vegetable matter.

Another objective of this invention is to provide a sustainable environment for some of the world’s poorest populated areas.

Another object of this invention is to moderate the temperature fluctuations in the desert that sustain its desiccation.

The novel features which are considered characteristic for the invention are set forth in the appended claims. The invention itself, however, both as to its construction and as to its method of operation, together with additional objects and advantages thereof, will be best understood from the following description of the specific embodiments when read and understood in connection with the accompanying drawings. Attention is called to the fact, however, that the drawings are illustrative only, and that changes may be made in the specific construction illustrated and described within the scope of the appended claims.
