  • Unleashing the Energy in the Ocean

    The oceans contain more "pollution free" energy potential than any other source.  Yet today, very little of that energy has been captured. This is about to change.

  • Your speech and presentation at the Future of Florida Forum was outstanding. As a homeschooler with 8 children, I particularly enjoyed that one comment, although I suspect I was in a deep minority in doing so.
