A proposed $50 billion grid of underseas cables connecting renewable energy sources in nine European countries may become a reality – and offer a reliable, weather-proof supply of clean energy from sun, wind, and wave.

The US should do something like this too. We have the technology. All that’s needed is the will. Europe wants to create its own power from clean sources, We can and must do the same too.
