Ah, so the only proof that we have achieved an energy free source, which noone would have to pay a cent to use, and it can be used to power the world,
and we also have Star Trek technology, etc, all of this is hidden from everyone even though noone has been able to see it or prove it?....
Let's say we can actually gather energy from the Earth, since the Earth is a giant capacitor and it acquires energy from the Solar System, and the
Solar winds as Earth moves around the Sun.
Do you think you can freely and without any money acquire this energy?
First of all, you would find that such energy fluctuates in frequency throughout the day, and it is not constant, sometimes that energy is stronger
than at other times, so you would have to recalibrate your equipment constantly to use this energy, just like Tesla did.
Since i mentioned Tesla, how is it that this man died poor when he supposedly could acquire "free energy"?
Maybe it has somethig to do with the fact that he needed equipment which cost a fortune to acquire, and store that energy?...
There is no such thing as "free energy", there will never be because in order to extract, store and in most cases in order to distribute such energy
you need money.
You think people would want to work for free?... How can people buy things which cost money to build without money?
Anyways, if we ever find ways to circumvent the problems of getting energy from the atmosphere, like Tesla had problems and everything wasn't peachy
all the time, then we will have to still pay for that energy, since in order to extract energy you need equipment, you need people who know what they
are doing, you need equipment to store that energy, and you need equipment to transport and or recieve that energy.
Hence the whole concept of "free energy" is, and will most certainly always be bogus.
Anyways, as to the claim that Nuclear energy is the cause of Global Warming...the Earth has been warming for over 300 years before the west started to
use nuclear power.
