A geosynchronous orbital tether could be sent up to an orbit corresponding to a ground point underneath the anamoly. Of course the concept is
theoretical and would require a massive engineering effort, but at the end of the day it sounds like it would result in something akin to a lightning
rod with a constant, massive charge coming down the line.
Problem is, how do you distribute that kind of energy effectively? I am not sure any of the "space powers" have anything to gain from giving Brazil
EDIT: Reviewing this post made me wonder; is this energy available at all levels of the Van Allen belts, or just at the anamoly? What is the relation
between the altitude of geosynchronous orbit and the Van Allen belt?
