    As many must know by now, Prince is big advocate of nuclear power and possibility of extracting fuel for same from sea. What other mineral resources could feasibly be recovered from this vast area and what practical challenges must be overcome in process?

    Minerals on the Ocean floor could provide resources for over 60 centuries

    as far as i am concern, electricity generation by wave in ocean is a promising technology. I think that will be a future solution of energy crisis. I plan to investigate this.

    Very well, dotcomrade: how will you protect your energy harvesting devices from Tsunami or rogue waves?

    Do tell. Energy storage seems to be a problem with most "green" energy fantasies, does it not?
