Golly, yet another "it's a revolution!" claim for an ancient idea. Tidal energy captured and used to convert abundant elements into fuel. =YAWN!= The USA Navy has been doing this for decades even though it is extremely energy inefficient. The idea is asinine because it is grossly wasteful of energy. It is far, far more efficient to use the energy extracted from ocean waves (chiefly tidal and wind energy) to power a system (a turbine for example), than to add the needless extra step of storing that energy chemically in a fuel: that is exactly why it isn't being done and has not been done by the private enterprise sector--- it's a bad idea because economically it is much more logical to use wind, solar, and hydrological transports for energy. Converting energy into a fuel makes no sense, when electric motors can be made to be better 5than 90% energy efficient. Sheeeish.
