no,.....

those areas of the ocean which consistently produce that ΔT require pumping cold water up from depths between 2500 to 3000 feet deep,...

you already know the rest of the story;

   We have blenderized birds with wind-farms and cooked them with death rays on solar-farms what's a little algal bloom or extinction of yet to be discovered species.

  It's a long article but some of that is addressed, the environmental impact may not be any worse than existing "green" energies.

oh yeah I forgot, thanks for the reedumication,...

if it's green and kills birds that's okay,...

if it's black and kills birds that's bad,...

and yet the birds wonder,.....

or do they ?!?!?!?!?

   There are two ideas in the article that are at least interesting. There is one being built to tow out to a oil drilling rig that is happening. The other is using it on a ship to harvest hydrogen from the ocean moving to conducive areas of delta-T. It seems like it is usable now for shoreline production but only in the tropics that could shift energy demand on the global market but that is not projected for a decade or two.
