Energy – limits to tidal projects

Here is another examples of how ‘alternative’ is not necessarily the same as ‘appropriate’.:

It may be a good idea but that can only be decided when all the wider impacts of such tidal eenegy developments have been fully explored. The above article completely fails to acknowledge even the existence of such issues (cf: http://uk.whales.org/…/wdc-marine-renewable-energy-report.p…).

Perhaps we ought to hold the applause a little longer until such things are clear. Generally, it illustrates how ‘sustainable development’ and ‘renewable energy’ can be but the same old exploitation and ruination albeit in a new guise.
