Given the current high cost of energy, and considering the rise in demand in China and the very real possibility that the price of oil will probably never come back down from its stratospheric orbit, you would think any possible new source of clean, renewable energy would be welcomed...
You'd think so... but you'd be wrong!
On the Steorn site (http://www.steorn.com) they have a poll. See, Steorn challenged the scientific community to validate their findings. Anyway, the poll asks if visitors think that the scientific community should accept the challenge or not. So how is it that out of the over 100,000 people who voted, 61% do NOT think scientists should accept the challenge?! It makes no sense to me.
This negativity sure seems a lot like the reaction Galileo got when he first claimed that the world was round instead of flat. The way I see it, we should be investigating ANY possible clean, renewable energy sources we can.
