Tidal power attempts to make use of the natural energy potential of tidal activity in the oceans and seas. In simple terms, the high tide is captured and fed through a turbine to generate electricity. Tidal power is a reliable and predictable source of energy. Tides occur periodically and regularly, which can be deduced many years in advance.
There are two ways of creating tidal power: tidal dams and ocean currents. Dams are based on using a barrage at a bay or estuary with a large tidal range. Power is generated primarily at ebb tides as the barrage creates a significant head of water. Waves caused by wind blowing over the surface of the ocean also carry tremendous energy. The total power of waves breaking around the world's coastlines is estimated at 2-3 million megawatts. Ocean wave energy is captured directly from surface waves or from pressure fluctuations below the surface using point absorbers.
Many scientists and engineers across the world are learning to harness the indefinite power of the ocean waves, and to convert it into electricity with minimal environmental effects. The energy from ocean is environment friendly nature and does not lead to the green house effect. The tidal wave energy
is pollution-free and helps in conserving the earth.
Should we talk about tidal energy? Sounds good, but where's the money in it? No one will get behind it if they can't make money off of it. Sounds like it would create energy for quite cheaply, and it's not like the moon or the water would be making money off of it...
Honestly now that I think about it, wouldn't this be bad for the USA? I mean, the issue is that there aren't enough jobs to go around, this would be eliminating tons of jobs.
uhm... you DO realize this is a language forum, right? What's the purpose of this post exactly?
Maybe we should all just try and translate it to a conlang or something
But isn't this the general forum, with discussion that's not
