That's a fine piece of cartographic manipulation there PT...

I have two plans for cheap, clean energy... install tubines in Parliament (or Congress if applicable) and harness the continuous stream of hot air to generate power, or my new favorite...

Treadmills for all the punk-ass gang banger, drug dealers to run on eight hours a day in prison! Hell, we're paying to feed them... Might as well get something in return!

The only green energy scheme worth it's salt is tidal power. There has been talk for years about a Severn barrage - they should have built one when they built the 2nd Severn crossing. There is now a possibility that a tidal barrage will be built across from Cardiff.

The tidal flow of the Severn is absolutely massive - over 45'. Apparently a Severn barrage could provide almost 10% of the UK's energy needs - and it's far more reliable than wind!!! Also they can build a road across the top of it.

I really like Stoo's idea of the treadmill. I will pass it on to Sheriff Joe. He likes that sort of thing. Just passed a 20 women chain gang from Maricopa jail ( tent city) cleaning the streets. And yes, they are chained until they start work and from then on there are two guards with shotguns. We LOVE Sherif Joe!!!.

...Assuming you have a tide! Our coasts have 'em of course, but that's about 2500 km in either direction from me!

I'm surprised by how little tidal range we have here. I mean in Canadian geographic terms we are not that far from the bay of fundy where they get serious tidal flow/range but here the tidal range is a metre or so.

Hey Cod, looks like prairie tuber has more shoreline in just ONE of his bays....
It's called Hudson...

And as our friend Cod would likely say.... CLASSIC!!

I better shut up now, you could probably squeeze Ohio in there as well....

Stoo, outstanding ideas all! The Congress one is especially suitable, after all, them being role models for all the punk ass gang banger wannabes who need a career...
