I continue to update our position paper on the environment. Yesterday I was writing about “water power.” At a stop in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, during Campaign 2004, we learned there is a project underway there to harness wave action from the Atlantic Ocean. A big, pencil-shaped buoy is being placed off shore. It has the capability of capturing energy from the continual motion of the waves, then transfering it into electricity. In it’s pilot phase, the project will generate electricity for: 500 homes. Wave action is endless and an excellent source of clean, renewable energy… NASA is spending billions of dollars trying to get to Mars to see if there was ever any water there. Meanwhile, there’s water on this planet that can generate all kinds of clean power, as opposed to global warming gases that are now imminently threatening the earth. Question: Wouldn’t it be just plain ole’ common sense that all these billions of NASA dollars be better spent on technology around these big pencil-like things?
