Poppycock. It gives no actual details of how it'd work only they believe Tesla had the idea.

there's plenty of rumours floating around of people developing clean or significantly cheaper energy than the current ones, and then the inventor suddenly stopping dev or mysteriously disappearing, it makes a hell of a lot of sense really. If someone did make a break through that meant we no longer needed oil or gas, a lot of people, whole fucking countries even, would be fucked.
This is all nonsense, you can't suppress science. Even with patents in place, there are plenty of countries where that means diddly squat e.g. China, India, Brazil, N.Korea etc.. so anyone can research this stuff and if its viable I'm sure they would be using it. Do you really think the Chinese like having to import billions of barrels of oil to keep their country going when they could equally well be fuelling themselves using hydrolysis.
As for Tesla's energy tower, again millions of physics and mathematic PhDs, Professors, educated amateurs etc.. over the last century not able to replicate his ideas? it even sounds daft
Well its not total nonsense, we could put hydrogen fuel cell cars in production today and with some infrastructure be up and running in no time.
So why aren't we?
The fact that we have electric cars that actually look decent on the roads should give you some idea of how quickly we're moving away from fossil fuels, and there is very little that Oil companies can do or say about it.
Yep, nonsense mainly! Think I can safely say Oil companies are not sitting on the answer to free energy. Not to say they don't track interesting developments and potential new sources of energy. I think the most exciting stuff with be coming out of ITER in France when they have finished building the thing, could really make some progress in the hunt for viable nuclear fusion reactors.
Still waiting for the tech that powered the car in Back to the Future 2.... from what I remember that ran off pepsi and banana skins !!!!!!
Take something as simple as a lightbulb. I've seen the footage on everlasting light bulbs, developed decades ago, so why don't we have them?
I also recall watching a guy who invented a charger that would recharge normal batteries. Where is it?
And my final coffin nail in this, is the documentary I watched on the inventor who, having been to Africa and seen children trading a day's food and water for radio batteries, set about inventing a wind up radio. He went to virtually every major manufacturer of radio's and battery companies and they all basically slammed the door in his face. He got there in the end though through humanitarian investors.
I'm sorry, but there's no-one that can convince me that technology isn't being repressed for sake of the almight buck.
They realised that if they put them to market they worked that well that they'd be out of business as they'd wipe out the market for replacements. In the end they just stuck them on their company fleet to save money there.
Saying that I think I saw Kwik Fit or Halfords offer brakes for life now - not sure if they're any good or shite though but it does make me think that while there's money to be made major advancements are going to be withheld or conveniently swept away somewhere.
It's like drugs - if they had drugs that fixed most modern illnesses completely they'd wipe out a multi billion dollar market instantly - those guys want a long prescription service to make the most money they can.
A friend who is involved with the motor industry told me a couple of years back about a type of rubber (or similar) that was invented that could be used for car tyres and they would last approximately the life of the car under normal use....
Apparently the tech/patent has been bought up by a consortium of all the major tyre manufacturers.. and it all went quiet !!!
Who Killed The Electric Car? is on YouTube and well worth a watch.
Glad to see this forum is still running (ex mod)
This is an interesting topic. Fuel prices are dropping.... wonder why. Could it be that an alternative is on the horizon and they are crapping themselves? Bring the price down and research slows into these technologies as the demand for them lessens. If petrol was cheap it wouldn't be a problem but as prices were hitting all time highs more and more people were looking to alternative sources of fuel.
