Every day the world becomes aware of technologies that have the potential to halt the unnecessary damage we continue to inflict on the world through our use of fossil fuels, and water powered technology seems to be one of them. Below are three examples of technologies which show that we have the potential to really do things differently here on the planet. It’s time to live in a way that resonates with the collective rather than continually using outdated methods to drive our machinery.
Stanley Meyer’s Water Fuel Cell
Some time ago, Stanely Allen Meyer supposedly invented a water powered car, and it received very little attention at the time. Today, it’s a fairly well known story, as many people have worked to spread awareness about it. The story of his invention was picked up very briefly by a local news station in Ohio. You can view his patent HERE; it also describes the whole process. You can view the entire collective of his documents here
It was even covered by mainstream media back in the day:
“I don’t care if you use rainwater, well water, city water, ocean water. If you don’t have any fresh water then go ahead and use snow, if you don’t have any snow available to you then use salt-water because there is no adverse effect to the fuel cell.”
A Brazilian Man Shows Us Why We Don’t Need Gas Stations
A motorcycle able to travel up to 500 kilometres (310 miles) on a litre of water was announced by creator Ricardo Azevedo in Sao Paulo last month. It’s called the “T Power H20,” and the design uses a combination of water and a single, external car battery to produce electricity and spark the process that separates the hydrogen from the water molecule. As a result, the necessary energy to power the bike is created.
There is still plenty of skepticism about water-powered machinery, and critics will often cite various reasons for why it’s not possible, including the law of thermodynamics, while others simply dismiss it outright for no reason at all. This has many people confused — why would Ruptly TV, a parent company of RT news, along with The Daily Mail and websites like the Motorbike Times, then choose to publish this story?
Sea Water Converted Into Jet Fuel
Scientists at the U.S Naval Research Laboratory have developed a technology to recover carbon dioxide and hydrogen from seawater and convert it into a liquid hydrocarbon fuel. This could be a tremendous breakthrough and eliminate the need for old ways of generating fuel.
It’s just another example of the many options for generating energy that are now available to us and which could end our dependence on fossil fuels. These new, clean, and green ways of generating energy have been around for decades, so why are we only talking about them instead of implementing them?
“Refueling U.S. Navy Vessels, at sea, is a costly endeavor in terms of logistics, time, fiscal constraints and threats to national security sailors at sea. In Fiscal year 2011, the U.S. Navy Military Sea Lift Command, the primary supplier of fuel and oil to the U.S. Navy fleet, delivered nearly 600 million gallons of fuel to Navy vessels underway, operating 15 fleet replenishment oilers around the globe.” (source)
The Navy successfully used the new fuel from seawater process to power a radio-controlled scale-model replica of a World War II aircraft with an internal combustion engine. Below is the footage from the test flight.
“In close collaboration with the Office of Naval Research P38 Naval Reserve program, NRL has developed a game changing technology for extracting, simultaneously, CO2 and H2 from seawater. This is the first time technology of this nature has been demonstrated with the potential for transition, from the laboratory, to full-scale commercial implementation.” – Dr. Heather Willauer (source)
Researchers say that this approach could be commercially viable within the next seven to ten years. They state interest in pursuing land-based options that could provide a solution to our current problems.
Having trouble losing excess weight? This could be one of the biggest reasons why.
We know so much about food now yet much of the population is overweight and unhealthy because of the quality of our food and our perception about food.
