    It’s going to do a lot of good for coastal defences in places where the coast is being washed away.

    of course its …
    of course its justified, they may not make nearly as much power as nuclear or coal but those technologies have been around for many many years, you just cant compare them, if we give this technology the same amount of time to grow im sure it will prove much more powerful in the future

    That’s not going to have any effects on anything….

    The moving water …
    The moving water wouldn’t be able to reach the blades of the turbine, so it would just be a piece of metal with a cage around it.

    A cage with miniscule holes would be more effective.

    and probably loose a great deal of seapower :)

    Scary I think. So …
    Scary I think. So we all know about connection of energy. So turbines are stealing the kinetic energy of the ocean currents to produce electrical energy. Same things with wind turbines. Consider why turbines are never placed directly behind another, it because the kinetic energy of the wind or water is much less after it goes through a turbine. So if you cover the ocean with these, you will STOP THE OCEAN CURRENTS. When will people realize nothing is free, coal, gas, hydro, nuclear, ALL C

    Hmm true but certain materials could allow the water to “glide” over them without changing the pressure. But that would likely cost tons…

    why think about the …
    why think about the cost of it now?! when the bigger picture of ending the use of coal power plants should be a larger concern so as to diminish the effects green house gases are having on our PLANET!

    If its too open, this fish will still get through. If its too closed, the water pressure will drop immensely.
