I love the people that think that's once the world's oil runs out we are screwed. The sheep keep getting brainwashed by people like T Boone Pickens, and think that the only choice to get cheap and available energy is by off shore drilling. Well there is plenty of alternative energy sources, some patents are owned by oil companies, but others like the Keppe Motor aren't. (yet)
Zpenergy--Brazilian scientists have announced the development of a breakthrough new motor that they hope will soon power everything from cars to industrial equipment. Just like solar panels capture energy from the sun, the Keppe Motor captures energy from the so called "vacuum" of space -- which it turns out is no vacuum at all. The motor is named for Brazilian scientist Dr. Norberto Keppe, whose book The New Physics proposes an ambitious new direction in our planet's technological philosophy.
The Keppe Motor is the first tangible invention arising from the ideas outlined in this book. Keppe worked with scientists Cesar Soos and Roberto Frascari of the STOP the Destruction of the World Association, an international group working for the preservation of life and nature. They were able to create an electric motor following Keppe's principles that requires significantly less electricity to generate power than a normal motor -- more than 75% less electricity to be precise. "People tend to believe that electricity comes from batteries, electrical outlets, etc.," Soos says. "What we are showing is that the traditional process of electricity actually signifies a loss of energy. That's why electric cars are so difficult to develop. Our process works with what we could call a non-entropic energy. So it's much more efficient."
As I have mentioned before I struggle with physics. I really can't comprehend the logistics of if this should work or not. I guess judging by the second law of thermodynamics it could work. But I can't say for certain.
