The Gulf Stream and the California Current might supply most of our energy requirements, especially on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts. Turbines are now being tested for this purpose and could greatly reduce our use of fossil fuels for this purpose. 

While fussing and fuming about climate change, we ignore, to a great degree, this non-polluting source of energy, which has been considered for over 40 years (It took only 66 years to go from the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk to landing on the moon.) 

There is a lot to discuss here. I suggest searching “Bureau of Ocean Energy Management,” which is mostly occupied dealing with offshore oil drilling and offshore windmills. Also Googling “ocean current turbines” as a start. This whole idea is being slow walked by our government, I believe. Why?
