Interesting...

Several years ago I saw on the Discovery Channel where there was some research done on a different way to use the sea to generate power. It involved using thin & flat flotation devices linked together so that they would "bend" in synch with natural wave-action...With small hydraulic pumps that would be oscillated with each wave-motion...The hydraulics themselves would be transferring the power to an on-shore generator.

They only showed a model-scale mockup of that setup...Your link reminded me of that & has me beginning to wonder what happened to that idea and/or why nothing else has come of it.

well, the question of 'why' is largely grounded in politics. take a look at G Wanker B's energy policy for the good ol' U.S. of oil-guzzling A. it stinks.

I didn't understand the politics of it that long ago...But I do *now*...

...Perhaps it's true when they say, "Ignorance is bliss"...

...Sigh!...

or when they say "sniper's bullet right between GWB's eyeballs would be bliss" ... no wait, that's just me.
