ABSTRACT
This article presents information on several energy resources. It is costly, needs tight security and is difficult to dispose of in the long-term. But sadly ignorance appears to be widespread; one development engineer in the oil industry even confused tidal energy with river flows and grossly expensive river dams. Patents exist that would enables the people to provide for our future needs without danger to anyone or anything much cheaper than any nuclear plant. Furthermore, such installations would enable the production of compressed hydrogen to service the engines needed for all transport.
