Environment Unlimited | Energy | Engineers race to steal nature’s secrets

A very positive piece about where our energy is going to come from. Or rather, where it will come from in the UK. BC has lots of coal, and a “Liberal” government, is is far behind the rest of the 1st world in developing wind, tidal and wave power. As for saving fresh water and energy by desalination – not even on the radar. Just take a drive around Delta on any hot day to see the agricultural industry using irrigation methods that seemed designed to waste as much as possible. You are not allowed to sprinkle the lawn during the heat of the day, as the water simply evaporates. So why is it a good idea on corn fields?
