    Scotland is probably fortunate in so much as it has a lot of islands on the west coast and most of these have fast tidal movements around them, it is windy most of the year, it is well suited to hydro power. We already produce more power than we can use and export to England. We certainly don’t need to think of nuclear though the London government seems intent on going nuclear and some of their nuclear power stations will be placed in Scotland unless we can stop them.

    The U.S. also has excellent tidal potential, with the largest tides in the world occuring in Bay of Fundy, ME.
