    Like from the New York Times, or the Wallstreet Journal?

    Sorry, but both of those "paper" newspapers have printed false or "made up" stories.

    If this is true, and that is a big IF, then the laws of physics may have to be reconsidered. This could have MAJOR impact, but knowing OPEC, it will probably be stopped, stolen, or bought out.

    News media is no longer a reliable source of information. The internet has NEVER been one. We're back to believing what we see for ourselves, and that's easily questioned too.

    There is no such thing as free energy. It's coming from somewhere. Just because nobody's figured out what the source is doesn't mean there isn't one. There's a 'perpetual motion machine' in Toronto that's been spinning for over a century. It's powered by ferrous magnets. Eventually their power will fade and the machine will stop. And eventually whatever is powering this new technology will also run out.

    Of course, if that happens to be the earth's magnetic field, it might hold out for a few million years, but it's NOT free energy.

    Well if it's true, then great, but i highly doubt anything will come of it. The oil and gas companies will just use some of it's billions to buy it and destroy it.

    I wouldn't exactly call the Mythbusters super scientists or anything. They CAN be wrong.

    That said, I'll believe this when I'm holding an example. Too many crackpot stories flying around about "free energy" machines these days to have not seen one yet, but I won't count it out.

    I have no idea how this could possibly even work. So I shall build another of my DIY EM's to test this.

    I was going to invent an infinite bullshit machine, but then I realized that it wouldent make any money because everybody already has one underneath thier nose.

    I was thinking, maybe they were saying "free" compared to petrochemicals? I hope. Because if they're saying it's free because it's coming from magnetism...well, they just dissed almost every physicist ever.
