Salt water fuel!
 


Has anybody seen this? This is just amazing. http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...arch&plindex=0

Maybe there is a solution to the gas prices and pollution at the same time. Don't you wish you came up with this yourself?

Yeah, but then we'll use up all the salt water and the oceans will go dry and the fishies will all dry up and the seals will starve and then the polar bears will attack people for food and then the people will riot and the weather will go all wonky and the forests will shrivel and everything will die and then they'll be nobody left to need fuel. It was a neat idea though.

Not necessarilly. If the earth can recycle it's water, so can we. We already do to an extent, so why not team up with sewage treatment plants to clean waste and return it to water before adding salt? That way, maybe the ocean would be only a last resource for fuel.

Only time will tell. We're going to have to replace oil allright. But i wish we could find something that wasn't so finite a resource as salt and water are to do it with. However, i do wish them luck, all the luck in the world.

I read this article about a year ago. its really really cool. I'm glad you posted it here. There is plenty of salt water... the oceans are getting saltier and saltier because of all the minerals sliding in from the rivers. I remember people telling me that the salt levels in our body was the salt level of the ocean when animals began crawling onto land. Sodium is so abundant... we just have to wait for them to figure out how to fit a device that does it into cars in great numbers.

Berengarius7 ... if you watch the video it says the byproduct... is H and O.... it extracts the water from the salt. People in snowy places spread salt to dissolve the ice and snow which is a problem.... too much salt seeping into the ground, on roads, over bridges... corroding metals. Excess salt kills freshwater creatures and ruins the soil for plant growth. Wouldn't it be nice to reverse it a little? The only thing to think about is the radio frequency generator. What powers that?

They could create something that feeds off of itself... only need electricity to spark a reaction.
The reaction to generate the radio waves... creates a second reaction for the salt water burn.
