A three page article discussing an effort to derive electricity from the close approximation of Salt Water and Fresh Water in the estuaries of large rivers, like the Mississippi.

 That's a pretty interesting read. Thanks for the link.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

Wow, I've never heard of that... very interesting. I bet they could add one of those units to the lowest dam on the Columbia, too...

Happiness... is a sharp saw.
