I am not sure they will make it work. It is quite complex.
There is an amazing energy to harvest from jet streams. We do have the technology: Cables that can stand wind and their own weight, long enough, many kilometers to reach the jets.
For the time being, Ampyx Power in the Hague is aiming for heights of on average 450 metres. Maybe jet streams will be the next step.

Since there are a few people following this thread who are knowledgeable about power generation, can I ask if everyone in the world died tomorrow, would the national grid ( and the internet ) still work without any human input? Presumably hydro and possibly wind could.
The truth has a quiet voice, and I feel alone in having the ears to listen.

Wouldnt it be nice if all human beings would have a kind of device integrated that would keep track of the negative effects of that person upon the environment. So by the time you are getting older you can adjust your life style to have some extra years on this planet.
If people would have been " designed " to get as old as they get now they surely would have get a set of new teeth at the age of 50.
An institution like marriage dates from the time that one of the pair would pass away before boredom sets in.
Greetings, Eduard
