Back, or Forward to the Energy Future?

Actually we COULD go 'Back to the Future' if we would take Nicola Tesla seriously. A few inventors have figured out how to tap the 'zero point' in a manner very similar to his Magnifying Transmitter. If we would open our minds, we wouldn't even need hydroelectric or wind power, let alone nuclear and petroleum. To learn more, Search 'Tesla Aether' .

Gentle Readers,

Dear hooten,

Won't work.

Nikola Tesla was a genius who invented the system of alternating electrical current we still use
today.

However, he rejected the THEORY OF RELATIVITY, and until he died in the 1940s, insisted
that it would be possible to tap into the ' latent energy ' of the ' ether field '.

In the 19th century, it was believed that Space was filled with a fluid referred to as ' ether '.
As it was understood that light was a wave-form, it was believed that a fluid was required
for the light waves to propogate through space.

However, by the end of the 19th century it was well understood that light could propogate
through a vacuum.

There is no ether. Space is a vacuum. The TELSA Magnifying Transmitter zero-point

( continued ) was designed to tap into an energy field, ether, that simply doesn't exist.

Einstein was correct in postulating that light is a particle, referred to as photons, which
demonstrates wave form.

Kindest Regards,

There may be no aether, and light surely does propagate as a wave through vacuum (as alternating electric and magnetic fields).
However, the Higgs Field (from which the Higgs Boson comes) does a fair impression of being the old aether that the 19th Century told of.
Of course, there's still no such thing as a free lunch; and perpetual motion machines are still impossible even if Tesla says so.

Greens today are all about going back. Back to a world with fewer, cars fewer power
