The Feds have given an Orange County entrepreneur the go-ahead for a three year study on the feasibility of putting a wave farm a mile off the coast of San Onofre State Beach. All kinds of people are already het up about the idea, reports the LA Times: "Environmental groups...said putting the devices in the waters of San Onofre could harm marine life and potentially mar the view from the coastline. Surfers are worried it would dampen waves and alter seafloor terrain along a stretch of coast famed for its surf breaks. Sport-fishing groups said a wave farm could block off favored waters for sand bass, bonito and barracuda fishing." [LAT]
