Radio frequencies help burn salt water



ERIE, Pa. - An Erie cancer researcher has found a way to burn salt water, a novel invention that is being touted by one chemist as the “most remarkable” water science discovery in a century.



John Kanzius happened upon the discovery accidentally when he tried to desalinate seawater with a radio-frequency generator he developed to treat cancer. He discovered that as long as the salt water was exposed to the radio frequencies, it would burn.



The discovery has scientists excited by the prospect of using salt water, the most abundant resource on earth, as a fuel.



Rustum Roy, a Penn State University chemist, has held demonstrations at his State College lab to confirm his own observations.



The radio frequencies act to weaken the bonds between the elements that make up salt water, releasing the hydrogen, Roy said. Once ignited, the hydrogen will burn as long as it is exposed to the frequencies, he said.



The discovery is “the most remarkable in water science in 100 years,” Roy said.



“This is the most abundant element in the world. It is everywhere,” Roy said. “Seeing it burn gives me the chills.”



Roy will meet this week with officials from the Department of Energy and the Department of Defense to try to obtain research funding.



The scientists want to find out whether the energy output from the burning hydrogen ? which reached a heat of more than 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit ? would be enough to power a car or other heavy machinery.



“We will get our ideas together and check this out and see where it leads,” Roy said. “The potential is huge.”

Demonstrating it in a lab and having other scientists repeat it independently are completely different. If it can’t be repeated by other scientists independently then it’s junk science. Remember Cold Fusion???

I recently read of this discovery. Yes, it has caught us all by surprise. It is likely to open the doors to all sorts of new theories in chemistry and physics, chiefly involving chemical bonding and bond energies.

But as a fuel? Are you kidding me? You have to zap your salt water with tremendous amounts of RF energy. Based on thermodynamic principles you should recover far less output energy than you send in.

Once again, TANSTAAFL. (There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.)

It is worthless.  It will take as much energy to separate the O from the H as it will give back so there is not gain.  In reality there is a loose since no process is 100% efficient.   BTW you can do the same thing with very high heat or electricity with out the radio frequency stuff.  

Now ask yourself this. Why would a cancer researcher be doing this? If he was any good he would be finding a way to stop cancer before it gets me like it got both my parents.

Read it critically and you will at best see it as foolish or the work of a troll.
