Catch the Wave

from Wildlife Promise

2 6/14/2007 // By Larry Schweiger

Last week when I was in Boulder, Colorado, I met Representative Cynthia Thielen from Hawaii. We had a fascinating discussion on the possibility of wave power. She sent over some links on technology that is being installed worldwide.

Isn’t it great that companies of all sorts are gaining competitive advantage from the new energy economy? America stands to create thousands of jobs and have a bright energy future if we take advantage of these opportunities to invest in clean new sources of power.

Check out these links to see examples of what can be done. Aloha.
