    What's going on here? It doesn't seem like it would work well at all. I remember popular science said something about how little power it produced. Reminds me of a Carnot engine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnot_cycle

    Is this a good idea, or should I stick with nuclear fusion reactors?

    Nuclear fusion, pfff, that'll never produce the power that calm ocean waves can produce!

    But seriously, im highly skepitical... the website left much to the imagination.
