Editor's note: This post is part of a series. We'll be releasing one of Andy Lubershane's original comics each week until the end of the year. While many of the issues covered in the comics have been discussed on Worldchanging in the past, we hope that you'll be able to use this new medium in a different way … whether it's in your classroom, on your office wall, or to help explain ideas to friends and family.
This week's cartoon describes wave power. For more in-depth info, check out Jamais Cascio's post on ocean power from 2005. To look further into the future, read Jeremy Faludi's post on the BioWAVE and BioSTREAM.
Andy Lubershane researches, writes and cartoons about sustainability from his home in Boston. He can be reached at alubershane[at]gmail[dot]com.
Another great one! You know, I had never actually bothered to look into how wave power works, but here it is explained in a matter of seconds. Ideas like this make me realize that there's an overabundance of clean untapped energy out there, and all it takes is ingenuity to harness it.
