We need to keep in mind that I did this 40 years ago. In the remake, I ran a vertical down tube directly into 10 feet of earth. Half way down, I ran the horizontal tube uphill and yes it can be quite breezy. I’ve often wondered if one could harness this breeze. I could see a series of smaller tubes running up the hill, and then necked down at the outlet to turn fan driven alternators. To get the breeze you only need cool air at the bottom & warm air at the top. The great thing about playing with ideas is that I am not an engineer – So I don’t know it won’t work :-)
