OPB Radio’s series The Switch has explored everything from wind to geothermal power. Next we go to the sea. Many experts believe that waves and tides and ocean currents  may be the next best thing in our sustainable future. Can the sea power us? What role does wave power have in the future economy and environment of the coast?

These are questions we’ll explore in a special broadcast of Think Out Loud. If you live near the Central Coast, please join us on Tuesday June 16th at the Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport for a discussion about wave energy. The event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6 pm and the show begins at 7 pm sharp. This one hour program will air the next day on Think Out Loud at 9 am.

What do you think of wave energy? Could it be our energy source of the future?
