Enviroheads Cast Doubt on Tidal Turbines

New, 2 comments

Brace for more to come, as environmentalists buck against the city's plan to harness tidal energy by submerging turbines beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, a plan that sounds cool, but would produce power costing 7 to 10 times more than PG&E's output. Expressing its skepticism on the subject, Treehugger says: "But if he doesn't have good reasons and wants to keep pushing just because it's a cool project, we ask him to reconsider... Come on, Mr. Newsom, that's taxpayer money we're talking about" ... "Wasting money on a white elephant would only give arguments to the anti-greens." Ouch.
