Via electrolysis, free vast amounts of hydrogen into the upper atmosphere (presumably the stratosphere) and lower the sea levels, countering any dangers from the melting ice caps in the north and south, from the rising sea levels, which, until this invention were threatening to cover up whole neighborhoods, cities and Holland.

Also, now there is no need to worry about the depleted levels of oxygen due to the death of trees. Let the forests dry out, and the polar bears die out. Who cares, we now live in a potentially explosive environment, but its sustained artificially, and since it will be government controlled, all is safe.

       Much of the hydrogen will probably permanently escape to outer space. It will probably also totally destroy the ozone layer (hydrogen and ozone are "hypergolic", reacting on contact).

       Burn the hydrogen to generate power for the electrolysis then.

       But who will think of the manatees?

       This idea is made worthwhile by Max's abysmal pun. I read it about 5 minutes ago but have only now recovered from going blind.
