A really interesting and promising bit of news…
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.

Now that would be a great source of energy: sea water.
We have more of it than we need, it’s clean, cheap, and all we’d possibly get as emissions from burning it is more water, now who wouldn’t want that?
Hmmm… well, actually a lot of people, starting with the oil companies and the people backing/profiting/being backed by them; but that’s their problem.
