Could River Currents Power The Planet?

According to this article in the UK Telegraph they can. A new system can be installed in water moving as slowly as 1 mile an hour. This makes the ability to generate power off of waves/currents much more viable. Here's a link to some more info on the subject as well.

If this works like they say, it could be a pretty impressive breakthrough. There's energy everywhere, we just need to learn how to harnas it.

That is awesome. I hope I am alive for the day when all of our energy comes from water, solar, and wind power.
