Archimedes Screw, Ocean Waves and Fieldstone Energy
For instance why pollute the atmosphere? Whether you join in the Global Warming sound and fury or not, everyone has to breath the air. Now then it makes sense to consider alternative energies to reduce the amount of CO2 and atmospheric pollution. Well it just so happens that there are folks out their designing new systems to solve the problems of mankind and one of those companies is Fieldstone Energy.
Their unique plan is to collect the energy from ocean waves and use it to power up nations. Well we all know that ocean waves pack a wallop if they knock you over at the beach. So, why not capture that raw power? Historically we have had hydroelectric generators on rivers and even Leonardo da Vinci did some drawings in his day of ways to harvest energy and deliver water up hill.
Fieldstone Energy wishes to take this one step further in fact and create super efficient power generator stations on the shoreline and just off shore, around the World. Now that I have got your attention, let us discuss the reality of this concept. Is it doable?
Well, from a pure physics standpoint, it is more than doable and the amount of energy that can be generated is intensive indeed. http://www.fieldstoneenergy.com/pdfs/WaveEnergy-Bigpower%20matrix.pdf . The future of nearly unlimited renewable energy is close at hand and I hope this article will help propel thought in 2007.
