Fusion does have merits and a large fuel supply from the oceans should we ever get it sustainable, I feel we should at least keep reseaching it.

But yes, practical methods using technology we have now should get the priority, hydroelectric has quite a good yield and a good track record.

I still think windfarms are a dead end, the vastness of the farms and the resources/energy/man hours just are not repaid from what little energy they produce so far.
