A vertical oriented wind turbine must be fixed on a rotable mount. Otherwise it cannot use well the wind. And by such a mount, its blades would destroy a zip line running from its pinnacle to the ground.

Interestingly the first transmission aerial system of Eiffel Tower was similiar to the proposed zip line

even this lemon isn't as bad:

There are known knowns. These are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say, there are things that we know we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don't know we don't know. -Donald Rumsfeld
Didn't you notice on the plane when you started talking, eventually I started reading the vomit bag?

This is one of the best projects I have ever seen. This would make The Eiffel Tower even more beautiful.
