There was a guy on Shark Tank this week that wanted $2mil to build faraday generators using ocean wave action.

The level of tin foil hat-ism is high in the Free Energy Party. Everything is a conspiracy to them. Where had we heard that before?

Cold Fusion is a tech not ready for prime time...if they can demonstrate repeatably maybe they'd get more research funding.

The concept of burning vapor gasoline had been around for years. It's called Lean Burn Combustion. They only problem is when it is used it produces high levels of Nox - Smog. The EPA is not pleased with it.

As to the Karpon Pile, common sense says that with the loss of energy due to mechanical friction and electrical resistance, it should have stopped running. Some say he is harnessing Zero Point Energy. That's a thinker.

The most beautiful form of free energy I have encountered is flying a Sailplane, and even that has to be launched by something.

I think we will see a cold fusion generator before we see a Zero Point energy generator.

I always get a laugh out of the "evil gov is keeping the idea seekrit" crowd. Lets assume for a minute that the US gov is competent enough to keep a free energy machine a secret. OK. So I take my idea to Russia, China, India, anyplace but the US. Any of those countries would give their left nut to get out in front of the USA.

But it never happens. Why? Because its all BS.

It was actually pretty good, but I know what you mean. We recorded a presentation for NASA a couple of weeks ago and I still have not brought myself to watch it.

Some politician would write a book, then make a documentary about "The Unbelievable Truth", win a Nobel prize, then make billions with an energy conservation company.

Doesn't the Nobel prize come first??

The last time I remember a device that would change the world forever, it was named Segway.

How's that working out?

Next time gas gets to $4.00, look for an old device to improve your mileage by 40%.

Bovine excrement. Squared.
