Saltwater As Fuel - A US inventor may have discovered the answer to global energy wars

Inventor John Kanzius was looking for a cure for cancer and accidentally found a way to produce energy by burning saltwater.  He uses a radio frequency generator to release the hydrogen and oxygen in the saltwater to produce an intense flame.  Watch the video below.

The implications of this discovery are earth shattering - - or should I say earth saving.

Imagine a time in the near future when we fill up our cars with saltwater instead of gasoline.  Imagine all of the ecological disasters that could be avoided (no more super tankers filled with oil). 

How would the policies of the US change in the middle east?  How many wars would be avoided if gasoline was replaced by saltwater?

This invention by Kanzius reminds me of economist, entrepreneur and professor Paul Zane Pilzer wrote a book entitled "Unlimited Wealth - The Theory And Practice Of Economic Alchemy".  Pilzer suggests that because of technology, we have an unlimited number of resources. From the book:

For the past four hundred years, virtually all practitioners of the dismal science we call economics have agreed on one basic premise: namely that a society's wealth is determined by its supply of physical resources--its land, labor, minerals, water, and so on.  And underlying this premise has been another, even more profound, assumption--one supposedly so obvious that it is rarely mentioned: namely, that the entire world contains a limited amount of these physical resources.

This means, from an economic point of view, that life is what the mathematicians call a zero-sum game.  After all, if there are only limited resources, one person's gain must be another person's loss; the richer one person is, the poorer his neighbors must be.

Over the centuries, this view of the world has been responsible for innumerable wars, revolutions, political movements, government policies, business strategies, and possibly a religion or two.

Once upon a time, it may even have been true.  But not anymore.

Wow! How far away from being able to utilize this fuel are we?

Why is no one asking the basic question about the amount of energy used to produce the Radio waves? Where is this energy going to come from in a vehicle? Let's keep the laws of physics in mind here.

Tom Heck

Carl asks an important questioin: Where is the energy coming from to produce the radio waves? The news clips (video) neglect to report on the fact that Kanzius (the inventor) says the process consumes more energy than it produces. Kanzius is applying for a patent on the process so it's hard to know how close he is to developing a process that produces more energy than it uses. Carl also asks where the energy will come from in a vehicle - - And I say: Once a vehicle is moving it will be able to generate an electric charge much like existing gas propelled vehicles. The car battery uses up it's charge when the car starts but after that the car produces electricity which then charges the battery. My point in sharing this news item is to help bring about a shift in consciousness. PERHAPS we (USA) don't need to travel all over the world to find and fight over oil to satisfy our energy needs. For 99% of the population the consciousness is "We need oil or we won't be able to drive our cars." I'm reminded of the existing paradigm of powered flight prior to the Wright brothers. After the Wright brothers shattered the existing powered flight paradigm we saw huge jumps in technology and beliefs around powered flight. Maybe the Kanzius invention will never work AND I say it is a step in the right direction.

Think about what it takes to emit a (specific) resonating FREQUENCY sufficient to "excite" the salt water. Thinking about the same type of equipment Kanzius is USING instead of what it is DOING doesn't lend it self to finding an elegant solution that could be efficient if not being overunnity.
