Topic: Oceans of energy


More than half of the planet earth is made up of water bodies. These include oceans, seas, rivers and other forms. Besides being a natural habitat of scores of living organisms, Oceans and seas also hold massive amounts of energy within them. The ocean energy is so huge that the amount of ocean energy currently in use by the world is only 0.2%. But as newer technologies come up; this percentage is all set to move higher.

Ocean energy is predictable, reliable as well as abundant. Ocean energy is present in the tides and waves present in the ocean. The tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon on the earth. Tides may seem pretty languid things but carry immense potential inside them. One can imagine the kind of effort and energy that is required to lift the water. As the tides flow, it turns the turbine fans and generates electricity.

Waves of the ocean possess a great deal of energy. Waves occur on a regular cycle and bring bursts of energy. Ocean wave energy is captured directly from surface waves or from pressure fluctuations below the surface using point absorbers. Owing to its great advantages and bright prospects removed seem a wise thing.

If what you advocate were as good as you would have people believe, you wouldn't have to spam sites like this to get attention.

Sorry,.... FAIL!!!
