What air filtering technique(AFT) would you suggest? Do the AFT and the blimp require maintenance? If yes, how often? And how would you facilitate it? Does it require a centralised network for navigation? (otherwise it might soon wander into the ocean/rural area) Can it withstand harsh weather? Lightning strike? Assuming you are using solar panel, can it sustain the overall operation of the blimp?(floating, navigating, air filtering, wifi, etc.) Assuming worst case scenario, it fails and falls right off the sky, what could be the consequences and how would you tackle it? This idea is quite cool. I think some kind of "docking station" would be needed especially during night time and harsh weather. Besides, in my humble opinion I think integrating all these (air-filtering + wifi + advertisement) is quite nice but the maintenance would be too high. The overall energy efficiency would be higher too if they(air-filtering + wifi + advertisement) are done separately in their own platforms.

Which companies do you want to give the mentioned tax credits to? The incentive for firms might solely be to get a better and greener image using the blimp, sothat tax credits might not be necessary. Did you think of that? Besides the government and firms, how can citizens take action? Why is it important that the blimp provides wifi? Does it help to clean the air? Which firms would you like to show their adverts? Only green firms or any firm?

... and lastly, how does your solution help to reduce CO2 emissions, energy demand or oil use? Your idea might not need additional fuel or create additional CO2 but it doesn't help to reduce the current levels either.
