We're starved for clean energy when it is all around us, in the air, water and even the earth. We'd have plenty if we could figure out how to collect it. But technological development must overcome some formidable challenges, especially to mine the powerful energy in water. Water is much denser than air, so harnessing even a small amount of the tidal current flowing in and out of our region's many bays and estuaries, or the deep-ocean currents such as the Gulf Stream, can produce vast...

In the case of Ukraine and Georgia, do what you are told or big brother will sort you out. As North Sea gas runs down, we will become more and more dependent on Russian energy sources and we cannot rely on the US to look after our interests. Giving up our nuclear option would be nave, for as long as we have the threat of...
