Cargo ship snapped in half by angry seas

Cargo ship snapped in half by angry seas

(3:01) Drifting after the engine failed, the Spanish cargo ship Luno broke in half after it crashed into the breakwater at Anglet, France. All 12 crew were winched to safety by helicopter.

I'm amazed at how helicopters can fly in such adverse weather conditions.

There's so much energy in those waves. Surely we should spend more effort in converting it to electricity.

The problem with wave-energy is that it is usually trying to smash the device that attempts to harvest it. The peak storms are really powerful, while the average waves are less so - and the whole thing has to be located offshore, with cabling. It's really quite hard to do well.

Such things have been proposed for decades. But there's always some individual or organization who believe that humanity belongs in the stone age that will put effort into stopping it.

We would use the inventions of Stanley Meyer LINK , Edwin Gray LINK , John Kanzius LINK and countless others but unfortunately, present energy monopolies will not allow any of these to reach the market place, so we continue poluting ourselves to death.

If brains were dynamite, you wouldn't have enough to blow your nose.

A more appropriate name would be, Satan's a hole.

According to the currently accepted laws of physics, there is no way to extract chemical energy from water alone. Water itself is highly stable—it was one of the classical elements and contains very strong chemical bonds. Its enthalpy of formation is negative (-68.3 kcal/mol or -285.8 kJ/mol), meaning that energy is required to break those stable bonds, to separate water into its elements, and there are no other compounds of hydrogen and oxygen with more negative enthalpies of formation, meaning that no energy can be released in this manner either.

Most proposed water-fuelled cars rely on some form of electrolysis to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen and then recombine them to release energy; however, because the energy required to separate the elements will always be at least as great as the useful energy released, this cannot be used to produce net energy.

I wouldn't expect anything else from Wikipedia and misinformation is all you will find on this subject.

Stanley meyer studied and experimented for 13 years before discovering the right frequency and voltage to efficiently split the water molecule. He was offered 250 million for the rights to his technology. He would not sell and then he was poisoned and died at 57.

Here's a water powered car LINK

Cold Fusion is not a myth either. Andrea Rossi's E-Cat LINK (scientific review) works but has also been buried.

I guess it's easy to turn these inventions into "myths".

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."

Just ask yourself, who benefits ? Energy is far and away the biggest business on the planet.

I aked the following: Link us to the published article from the respectable science magazine that confirms his findings.

you provided a youtube link in the description of which it's written:

The basic power generation mechanism of the new system is similar to that of a normal fuel cell, which uses hydrogen as a fuel. According to Genepax, the main feature of the new system is that it uses the company's membrane electrode assembly (MEA), which contains a material capable of breaking down water into hydrogen and oxygen through a chemical reaction. IT RUNS ON FU*KING HYDROGEN.

the second link is an article written on an obscure website, an it's the interpretation of the article's writer of an experiment, according to the source link that was posted in the article:

An experimental investigation of possible anomalous heat production in a special type of reactor tube named E-Cat HT is carried out

Notice how it doesn't say anything about magic water energy, overunity crap.

Usually, when someone discovers something, they start with a hypothesis trying to explain an observation, then they make an experiment to prove or disprove the hypothesis, if the experiment proves the experiment, they write a paper about it, then they send it to a renound and respectable scientific magazine like science or nature; the editors check for errors in the paper before they publish it, if the paper is good they publish it so that other scientists in the same field can try and repeat the experiment; if the experiment is repeatable by other scientists, the findings become science and cease to be only a hypothesis.

now i ask you again:

Link us to the published article from the respectable science magazine that confirms his findings.

OR, shut the fu*k up about your irrational fairy tales.

That's not how inventors work. Patents and invetions are whole different game.

In any event I'm not trying to convince anyone. If any are interested they can do their own investigations.

I don't expect you to understand any of this technology, so just believe what others say if you're comfortable with that.

it's not about inventions, it's about scientific principle and the laws of physics.

You claim that man has in invention that doesn't respect the known laws of physics. This is an extraordinary claim for which extraordinary proof is necessary.

Provide the proof. Anecdotal evidence and testimony is worthless.

There is no proof on the internet. The only way to prove something is to conduct your own experiment.

It's not who is saying it, but what is being said that matters.

I don't have time for this and will no longer respond.

i am pretty sure that the science Magazines Science and Nature also publish at least a review of their articles on the internet.

here you go LINK

it is impracticla for everybody to do their own experiments on every extraordinary claim out there.
