If 25% of a commodity is removed, will the consumers' cost go up?

I agree to disagree. Public policies could change that and energy technologies are improving all the time.
The technology has moved slowly but dependably despite hundreds of billions of expenditures on it. You want people to suffer for your dream agendas. It will be done. But not in a decade like you make suckers of us all with. A few decades or more will be much more achievable at a growing percentage. You are going to kill billions of people with your insanity.

A "Manhattan Project" could accomplish it in a few years.

But NOT one comment about the damages incurred by interference with the tides.
Or damages to the wildlife that depend on tides for food, etc.
Where are those assessments?

5 Complications for Tidal and Wave Energy Devices​

Environmental disruption​

3. Any large mechanical device placed into an active ocean ecosystem is going to be problematic. Spinning blades may injure or kill aquatic species. A coastal barrage for tidal energy might upset an entire estuarial ecosystem.
Mechanical devices also can leak lubricants and emit noises that make trouble for fish and aquatic mammals. Engineers can tweak their designs in an attempt to minimize environmental damage, but they really can’t be sure what will happen until they get their prototypes in the water, so it’s difficult to solve these problems on the drawing board before they become much more expensive.

Better design could incorporate the device into seawalls to also help out with global sea rising and more ecologically friendly.
