Neat-o Energy Solution

Well I’ll be darned if that’s not the neatest energy idea I’VE ever heard of. Instead of harnessing wave-power of the oceans, harness solar power with turbines powered by the heat difference in deep water vs. surface water.  Neat! Make the oceans one giant solar power collector.

I wonder if they’ve done the math to see how much energy we can rob from the oceans without shooting ourselves in the foot, though.

I also wonder how much energy a hurricane could generate for us, if we had some sort of mobile windmill island chain.  Or if we just bought Cuba and used them.
