I have not posted for a bit and just saw this and thought that the members of ATS would help flesh it out.
I have been thinking about how humans create electricity. I am concerned that humans seem to create the majority of the power through burning things
(Please excuse my scientific terminology, I am no scientist.). This has led me to think of the energies that about on earth which are 'free'. Such
things as wind, sea, solar and gravity.
I have just seen a program that mentioned the
The Emperor Fountain
This is a gravity powered fountain which can shoot water 90 metres in the air. The power of the fountain is generated by "water dropping 122 metres,
through a 40 centimetre iron pipe from a man-made lake".

So this appears to be gravity being used to generate energy. If fitted with a turbine, would the fountain provide power? I would say so.
If this idea was developed, would this provide clean, free energy?
Any comments would be welcomed.
