Tidal Power is Revolutionary. 

Tidal Power Is Forever. 

Let's put it to work. 

Shoreline Earth will take you through the Evolution of the Solution to The Tidal Power Revolution.


I stand in awe of Earth's Ocean.

Feel it!

Feel the energy of The Tide, the most powerful engine on Earth.

Nothing is consumed, no toxic pollutants are released into the atmosphere, and it never stops.

The Ocean is an infinite source of perpetual clean energy.

If anything ever happens to stop The Tide, we'll never know, making it Perpetual Motion in my book.

The Ocean's energy will never be depleted.

In fact, with the advent of Sea Level Rise, it's getting stronger.

A perpetual engine, with unfathomable energy, is right before our eyes, waiting to go to work forever, for FREE!

How awesome is that?

C'mon, Folks, we can do this.

Here's how to get things started in the right direction.

Global Change Positives...

I’ve managed to come up with some positive aspects of change, amidst all the negative nonsense being peddled by every form of media.

Try this ‘For A Change’.

For starters, disaster is not tomorrow, or even next week.

We have advance knowledge.

That’s a Positive.

It is, however, reasonable for us to believe that change, caused by planetary warming, looms ahead for better or worse.

Is it our fault?

Of course it is.

We have fouled our own nest.

Dumb us! ( wrist slapping sound )

That said, we still have to move forward, it’s what we do.

The overall thrust of Humanity is still all about procreation and proliferation.

We’re good at it.

Since we started altering our environment with waste products from the fuel that keeps civilization humming, a period of time becoming known as The Anthropocene, our population has doubled.

That’s a roaring success.

Not a lot of forethought went into it.

Here we are.

If you can overlook your own situation, and see things this way, from the big picture viewpoint, we are friggin’ awesome at what we do.

We’re as good at being us as LeBron is at hoops, naturals, with extensive training and desire.

Our self-anointed ‘Superior Intellect’ gets us in a lot of trouble when applied without consideration for consequences, but we always get out of the trouble and turn whatever caused it into a positive.

Dealing with catastrophes and crises makes it better for the next generation.

Someone always sees a way to handle it, survive, and use what’s been learned to improve the future.

Another Positive, we are amazing, some of us always get through!

Sure there are casualties along the way, we're part of the Natural Course Of Events, players in The Carbon Cycle.

Survival in this game is blind luck.

Again, overlooking the effect on your own existence and experiencing what’s all around as happening to all of us, the future looks different, not so much impending doom, brighter in fact.

Get outside yourself
Add something Positive

Powered By The Moon...

Humans have always loved both the Moon and the Ocean.

With the advent of Tidal Power, we're gonna love 'em even more.

FREE, Lunar driven, perpetual energy covers most of this Planet, constantly lapping at the shoreline, waiting for us to figger out how to use it, before it inundates us and our way of life.

Sea Level Rise is The Ocean forcing us to pay attention to our coastal endeavors, and dropping a hint, saying, "Your over utilized natural resources are dwindling, while I get stronger by the day. Heads up, Folks!"

I love Earth’s Shoreline.

From the pristine majesty of Big Sur, to an oil soaked backwater, filled with rotting pilings and greasy derelicts, all the way down to the edges of a puddle, fascinating things are always happening wherever water meets land.

Among the most fascinating things happening at the shoreline is us.

Don’tcha think?

Let's start along The Waterfront in Lynn Mass USA, my hometown on The Ocean.

Welcome to Lynn Harbor, stay tuned, this is where the action starts.

Sea Level Rise...The Real Skinny...

Let's take a deeper look at Sea Level Rise.

There must be at least 10,000 people making a living by discussing and writing about Climate Change and Sea Level Rise.

9,900 of them never thought about either topic until a few years ago.

Reporting on The Climate Industry has only existed since the late part of 2007.

This is a brand new realm, but it's catching on, and developing at blinding speed.

Neither the situation nor the job of disseminating the relevant information has any precedent.

We have never been here before.

With all the aforementioned info already out there, why should you care what I have to say?

Here's one good reason.

The link below takes you to a Washington Post article, dated February 1, 2016, referencing the results of a just published scientific study showing the threat posed to US East Coast from Sea Level Rise.

Below is how I presented that info in August, 2014.

Excerpt text link for the entire piece...

"Here's one thing you can bet on.

The US East Coast is one of the areas where Ocean warming leads inevitably to Sea Level Rise.

Look at this map of Atlantic Ocean currents.

You'll see that The Gulf Stream consists of warm water traveling North.

As The Ocean warms and expands, more warm water at the surface will travel North with The Gulf Stream."

Below is a link to another piece I wrote in November of 2014.

I was able to present this news well in advance of the Washington Post piece because I have been on this case for a long time, I came into it with a lifetime of relevant knowledge, and the internet has provided me access to the top people in the field when I have a question.

Shoreline Earth is my turf.

The effects of Sea Level Rise matter greatly to me.

I do not want The Ocean and its Shoreline to become our enemy.

My interest is to figure out what is really happening, what it means to us, and what we can do to prepare.

There is no stopping an expanding Ocean.

Preparation for the most likely scenario is our best bet.

What is that most likely scenario?

Forget six feet of water in Manhattan.

Nobody on Earth will live to see that.

However, we may well see two feet of The Atlantic Ocean covering low lying portions of NYC during extreme coastal events on a regular basis.

In other words, events like Hurricane Sandy become commonplace.

Early Insight ...

That's what I offer.

Make of it what you will!

Shoreline Earth is not reporting the news.

Shoreline Earth is the news.

For the latest below...links will return you here...


The Infinitely Sustainable Lynn Electric Ferry…

Tidal energy surrounds us.

Earth’s Ocean is the most powerful force on The Planet.

Yet, even in the face of steadily dwindling resources, we have not developed an economically feasible way to use this awesome natural power.

There are Tidal Generators installed around the world.

They work.

But, these pioneering projects have not shown enough promise to stimulate a Global effort.

The numbers do not crunch.

The cost of designing, installing, and operating Tidal Generators remains extremely high because each situation requires a specific plan.

There are no plug and play Tidal Generators on the market.


contact RE Tidal Generator


TISLEF will open doors and stimulate innovation in Tidal Energy while revolutionizing passenger ferry service everywhere on Earth.

Here’s how.

The City of Lynn Massachusetts USA has begun an experimental commuter ferry service to Boston as part of a crucial Waterfront Development project.

This two year test, funded by the State of Massachusetts in hope of boosting the local economy, will determine the success or failure of numerous other local projects.

The ferry is a key to the entire plan.

Ridership has been encouraging, but not enough to operate without continuing subsidies.

Unless there is  a sudden spike in public interest, the State funding will expire.

Lynn has a lot of eggs in this one basket.

The ferry is a large part of the overall Waterfront Development plan.

The ferry’s subsidized two year test run will end this fall.

Lynn will be left with a nice new ferry terminal but no ferry. of this date...June 6 2016...the ferry is in limbo...June 7...declared dead by Gov. Baker...

Unless we come up with a solution.

TISLEF is that solution.

Let’s go back to the Tidal Energy idea.

Here’s my suggestion…

I mentioned earlier that we need a plug and play generator to get Tidal Generation rolling.

Siemens ( the energy company ) has recently developed a battery powered electric car ferry in Sweden.

They have shown that it can be done.

But, the recharging system is an enormous drain on the region’s electrical grid.

Tidal Power is the solution.

The Siemens ferry, Norled Ampere, is a large vessel, requiring batteries with hundreds of kWh to operate and recharge.

That brings the specialized installation factor into play.

Setting up a Tidal Generator capable of charging these batteries makes it cost prohibitive.

TISLEF is much smaller, designed as a 150 passenger ferry.

The 5 Mw Shoreline Earth Tidal Unit will can provide the necessary KWh to recharge a vessel of this size for short commuter runs, with plenty of power to spare.

The excess juice can be sold to National Grid for even bigger savings.

Lynn could lead the world in developing this concept.

The ferry can be refitted, electrically powered, recharged via Tidal Power, and in operation within a year or two.

This will make TISLEF economically practical, and open the way for an entire new industry based right here in Lynn.

There are dozens of local ferries that can be adapted, and there are thousands more around the Globe.

All would be more efficient, environmentally friendly, and profits would increase across the board.

Sounds like a dream scenario waiting to happen, don’tcha think…?

All that’s needed is local support to get this rolling.

The idea is so beneficial to so many that a simple statement saying Lynn is working to make this happen will result in a torrent of Global interest.

That’s what we need the most.

Positive press.

The world will come to us.

Announce it and they will come!

Perpetual Green Energy...A Dream Come True...

The Lynn Maritime Future Center
LMFC presents…
Sea Level Rise is a gift from Nature.
It’s going to solve our energy problems just in the nick of time.
We can’t relax, but we get one deep breath before forging ahead.
Ok, here we go!
This is about the future of Tidal Power.
Why Tidal?
It uses zero fuel.
There is no stink or noise.
Nobody has to look at it or listen to it.
And, at a time when all natural resources are dwindling at alarming rates, Tidal Power is getting stronger every day.
Sea Level Rise is guaranteeing that for us.
Tidal Power is not going to run out.
The real question is, “Why not Tidal?”
Because it doesn’t produce…yet.
That is because nobody has looked at capturing Tidal Power the right way…yet.
The Lynn Maritime Future Center presents a new approach.
LMFC offers a device which borrows the entire “Motion of The Ocean” as tides change.
This is readily doable.
That’s right.
Think about it.
Zero fuel consumption…ever!
I’ve designed the basics of a “Plug and Play” underwater Tidal Powered Electric Generator capable of consistently producing 5 Mw.
“Plug and Play” meaning it is a stand alone unit, delivered to your location and set up to generate.
These units can operate alone for specific use or they can be clustered in an array along the bottom to power your homes and offices.
This is possible because the LMFC generator attempts to capture, absorb, and transfer the entire sway of The Ocean.
Obviously nothing can truly capture the Ocean, but the relentless, unstoppable force is always there.
All we need to do is borrow a small amount of that energy for one small moment, all the time, over and over again, forever.
And still, nothing is consumed!
Humans can once again begin to flourish on Planet Earth because of this Natural Gift of infinitely sustainable Tidal Power.
Our expansive spirit can be unleashed from this recent deluge of, ‘all the good stuff is gone, woe is us, the sky is falling’, nonsense.
That negative sensation we all feel stems from our dwindling sources of power.
The Human spirit is being drained right along with the over consumed natural resources we lament so greatly.
We can all feel our energy trickling away.
We need to recover our sense of expansiveness.
It’s what got us this far.
LMFC Tidal Power is the solution to this recovery.
Stay tuned.
Ready whenever anyone else is!
Forward looking investors/partners sought.
