RE: Busting hurricanes with ocean cooling pumps
I had the same thought as WSHBaker. Yes, all that warm watr piling up in the ring will push downward, but the cold water displaced at the bottom of the skirt has no reason to rise. And you are dealing with an isolated system, if "the system" is the several cubic niles of water surrounding the array of rings. So I see no heat gain or loss in that system, other than the constant insolation.
