In response to the DOE, the waves alongside the US coast might cowl 64% of our nation’s vitality wants. So why haven’t we harnessed them? Nicely, it is annoyingly sophisticated; however this renewable know-how is about to make waves within the new inexperienced economic system.

So he's hoping for small scale application in 20 years?
Alright, forget about wave energy.
Before that ever sees large scale application so it actually has an impact on the whole issue, we'll probably have fusion going.
Is there a design already that is like a metal fence, like a web🕸️ that the water would hit and flow thru? I would think it'd have to be something like that for it to flow both ways and still have a structure with something in it to catch the force/movement of the current. Sea web.
Aren't they doing this off the coast of Scotland? August 2021
I’ve never felt so optimistic than I do now. The Green Energy Boom is in full force with Wind and solar along with the new breakthroughs like these. We will absolutely eliminate our carbon emissions by 2050 if not sooner.
Never heard dat before. Nor seen one before. Oh, wait… I wrote about it and the untapped potential ocean and river waves energy have.
Never heard about that in the context of using the Thames barrier to power the Beckton, London water desalination plant that generated freshwater for a million people in London and is completely powered with renewable energies. https://www.london.gov.uk/questions/2009/1811
Good luck and with a little magic dust it will .

Now this is an idea I can get behind
Wtf, never even thought about this. And I live right next to the Pacific.
I wanna invest in waves. 🌊 🥳
Lol. Slash. You needed to SLASH like 30 years ago. Bit late.
2 little 2 late
It's about time you guys did a video about Wave Power. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
I don’t understand why we aren’t trying to figure out how to harness the power of cars driving down the road. A LOT of moving cars but we aren’t collecting anything from it. 🤷♂️
Never. Wear. Those. Pants. Again.
We need some big engineering contests to find some new solutions here. So much untapped potential.
1:47 – Listen carefully to this. "If we could harness ALL of the energy along the US coastline, we could meet 64% of the nation's energy needs each year."
So, basically, if you were to able to fully extract ALL the energy from ALL the waves around the US (an impossible goal which, even if achieved, would lead to the collapse of the entire coastal ecosystem into a stagnant rotting mess), it would cover less than two-thirds of the energy needs the US has NOW.
Greenies are barking up the wrong tree here.
But how will wave energy deliver goods across the seas and highways? Banning combustion engines is not the solution…
i ship it 😉
too little, too late
When will you do a video about drilling to the center of the earth? There is a private funded company drilling to the earth right now. The last time it was attempted was called (Kola Superdeep Bore Hole) location: Murmansk Oblast Russia 1970-1992 7.619 Miles 40,230ft deep.
But as of 2008 a oil company called Al Shaheen Oil drilled 7.636 Miles 40,318ft for a oil pocket.
1987-1995 Germany tried drilling but only got to 5.655 Miles 29,859ft (Continental Deep Drilling Program)
2002-2005 China project (Chikyu) got to 7.5 Miles and tried to beat Kola Superdeep Bore Hole by drilling out in the deep sea, with a Deep sea drilling vessel.
