"Scotland needs both wave and tidal stream technologies to help decarbonise our electricity system, increase energy security and reduce dependence on imported fossil fuels."

Lang Banks, director of environmental charity WWF Scotland, hailed the move as a "very welcome and timely boost for the wave power industry in Scotland".

Way to go, Scotland!

As these large, so-called "green energy" projects expand everywhere, people need to do some investigation and thinking about the environmental consequences of such projects. But, this takes some critical thought, which is lacking in our society. Every project like this, has negative affects on ocean life, just as the mega wind generators & solar projects affect wild animals, birds. It isn't all just about us humans, so we can continue our present consumption. We are not the only species on this planet.
