Wave of the future
As far as the debate on our future energy needs is concerned, I believe we should go all out to invest much more in wave power.
The wind doesn’t always blow but the waves are always there; to generate power from the sea makes a great deal of sense.
The generators are under the sea and out of sight, so do not interfere with the environment.
We are an island surrounded by the sea, so we should exploit this resource much more.
I believe as far as nuclear is concerned we will be going down the wrong road.

We should learn lessons from Chernobyl and Japan of the dangers and expense and the problems of waste disposal.
Wave power fully exploited would reduce the need for turbines, which most people believe are a blot on the landscape.
