Re: Sub-sea nukes
It seems to me that there’s more than enough renewable energy to go around, 24/7. The problem is whether or not we are
A) Clever enough to use it
B) Able to capture it without generating a lot of very harmful chemical waste in the process of building the necessary equipment.
The wind may not blow all the time, but that’s no reason not to use its power when its power is available. We can store that energy for use when the wind isn’t blowing.
The sun may not shine all the time but when the sun isn’t shining with sufficient power to run solar the earth itself is radiating energy back into space - and solar panels are now being developed which can harness this power.
Tides never stop, giving a huge potential source of power which only lets up briefly at high and low tide - but since high and low tides are at different times even in a single county (let alone around the world) this too represents a continual source of energy.
But the best source of all is not using the energy. Do you really need a seven seater SUV to carry one person around (I find for one person a bike usually works well, and for nearly everyone else a small car is ideal). Do you really need your TV, router, microwave etc to be on standby while you sleep at night? The potential savings are huge!
