Box of Clean Cheap Energy Blooms in Calif. - CBS Evening News - CBS News


CBS documentary was interesting. Box of Clean Cheap Energy makes use of sand, air and natural gas.

Seems interesting to me and from what little I know about it, I'd love to see this move into more research and production and testing.

Uh.... this has been out for a LONG time... I think the technology has even been "here" longer when the guy was working for NASA... however, I feel like its a big PONZI scam... why? Companies have pumped in billions and not one... NOT ONE prototype which is weird because these things are powering some of the companies like Ebay (supposedly)... the guy says the technology is not there yet but they have had decades to do it and they haven't even ONE prototype... I think some of the big companies are too proud to admit that they have been scammed... Supposedly its already quite cheap to fabricate but why is there still a big ZERO in activity (setting up production plants, etc) and the guy "claims" it will take another decade to roll out for the public (what for? What's cheaper than dirt?).... by that time, nobody will remember this and the guy will have enjoyed quite a lifestyle and be quite old and ready for his punishment for the con game... sort of like Madoff....

Seems there are at least two prototypes working at two other companies and made by two different manufactures.

One working system at Ebayís office complex and another working at Cabelas at this time seems like enough to test and work out the bugs making improvements along the way. The Wright brothers didnít make that first flight happen in one or two days, and I think Alexander Bell didnít get the first phone working on day one. This is the time to tweak the machine and make it better. It looks promising to me, and with two different companies working on their systems it should come around sooner then not. We simply canít continue using non renewable energy.
