why is everyone freaking out about the oil spill in the gulf of mexico when we can just get energy FROM the gulf of mexico?
there is already hydro and wave energy we could use in the gulf to power our homes much more easily, and ik we cant use it for our cars but it could help charge the batteries for hybrids.... im basically saying maybe its a sign that we really need to change.
and here are some pictures
Attenuators are long multisegment floating structures oriented parallel to the direction of the waves. The differing heights of waves along the length of the device causes flexing where the segments connect, and this flexing is connected to hydraulic pumps or other converters.
