“Tesla was right and we are ready to prove it!” So say the two Russian physicists who have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to rebuild Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower in Fall, 2014. Tesla believed that the tower could transmit power wirelessly but this was never definitively proven in his lifetime.
If he was right, and after extensive study the team are convinced he was, the project could provide an efficient, worldwide energy transmission system that would distribute all the clean energy we can use.
Microwaves can be used to transmit power over long distances, and post-World War II research was done to examine possibilities. NASA worked in the 1970s and early 1980s to research the possibilities of using solar power satellite (SPS) systems with large solar arrays that would beam power down to the Earth's surface via microwaves.
The Shimizu Corporation wants to, essentially, build a ring of solar panels around the moon's equator and transmitted back to the Earth via microwave. And they want to get the project, dubbed LUNA RING (yes, all caps), started by 2035.

This just seems dumb on so many levels. Tesla came up with some great inventions but just like all inventors he also had lots of failures.
Lets see this working on a smaller scale before trying to do the whole world.
OK here is your proof it works on a small scale. It is called a Tesla coil, i am sure you have heard of it. It has been proven to work small scale for almost 100 years.....where you been at?
Tesla already confirmed it worked with his own experiments. He already confirmed the ionosphere and the Earth are large conductors.

free energy to power all of my self sustaining projects and transportation
Why wait for these guys to beam it to you? Get some!
Where does the power come from to create lightning ?
Tap that too. Why haven't you already?
How about the energy that spins the earth ?
How does the tower get it?
How about the northern lights .There is a electrical force in our universe and solar system .
What do you know?
How about that because as far as I know JP Morgan is not creating it .

Well for a start Tesla never said the Wardenclyffe Tower was designed to generate free energy, he said it's designed to transmit energy wirelessly, but still requires an energy source. It's supposed to be kind of like a cell tower, it sends out a powerful signal using a large antenna and everyone picks up the signal with a smaller antenna. Read Tesla's original patent for the Wardenclyffe Tower if you doubt me. The true secret of the Wardenclyffe Tower is that it can send wireless energy over any distance with very little losses.
Understanding Tesla's Inventions
Typically, systems that use electromagnetic radiation, such as radio antennas, are not suitable for the efficient transfer of energy because they scatter energy in all directions, wasting large amounts of it into free space.
To overcome this problem, the team investigated a special class of "non-radiative" objects with so-called "long-lived resonances".
When energy is applied to these objects it remains bound to them, rather than escaping to space. "Tails" of energy, which can be many metres long, flicker over the surface.
"If you bring another resonant object with the same frequency close enough to these tails then it turns out that the energy can tunnel from one object to another," said Professor Soljacic.
Hence, a simple copper antenna designed to have long-lived resonance could transfer energy to a laptop with its own antenna resonating at the same frequency. The computer would be truly wireless.
