Private U.K. group tries to relaunch mammoth tidal power project

LONDON -- A plan declared dead nearly three years ago to build a damlike hydroelectric structure across one of the United Kingdom's biggest river estuaries to generate billions of watts of clean electricity has been resurrected to the excitement of some and the horror of others. The proposal, definitively rejected by the current government in 2010 on the basis of projected environmental damage and the cost to build an 11-mile concrete structure across the mouth of the River Severn between south Wales and southwest England, has been revived by what was until six months ago almost a private club of players.
