There is no such thing as free energy. The source may be free but the cost of materials, equipment, manpower, and networks is certainly not. You need
production plants and transmission lines. You need workers and support industries. These all cost money.
This pipe dream of free energy is exactly that, a pipe dream. The money to pay for it has to come from somewhere.
Please use common sense in future posts.
Uhm...i don't know how else to say it, but this is nonsense to argue that energy is "not free" because of material costs or transport costs. It has
nothing to do with it, RATHER with law of physics.
If we assume there WAS "free" energy...there would be a point where the gain and output of the energy would simply outweigh the costs of
production/transport - regardless of the initial costs. It would be only a matter of time til the gains would outweigh the cost.
Also..think about *what exactly* makes the cost of energy *today* - let's just take nuclear energy as an example. One problem here is the inability to
actually get rid of radioactive waste....those cost alone.
Or the cost of digging/drilling for oil....let alone the fact that those resources are limited. It would not even be a remote comparison if we HAD a
source of energy which can create energy...from, say, 100g nickel powder AS CLAIMED.
From that point of view saying "free energy" would be legit (although not physically correct)...but it would be ok..heck give me 100g nickel powder
and i power my home for 6 months..how more "free" can it get?
