Use your imagination


Last week's coastal defence article emphasised the drawback to government recognition that Canute had a point, dwelling as it did on the destructive energy of wave and tide.

Is it really beyond the imagination of engineers to devise a control of the forces behind littoral drift that captures exploitable energy and affords economic justication for coastal protection?
