Heard about this during AP bio today, sounds pretty crazy. How awesome would it be if it actually works?

Wow, thats really cool. If we can figure out how to harness that energy we could solve a bunch of fuel problems.

aw.. you beat me to it. BTW it does work...... but it's not known whether it will work as auto fuel due to its expansion rate yet.

Ethanol is a joke. its inneficient to burn. It creates Ozone insteas of CO2 and CO thru the production of acetylaldehyde. It takes huge ammounts of land and resources to produce the crops. and the manufacturing process is innefficient and creates chemicals that are extreemly toxic to auquatic life. Ethanol is just as usefull to this world as getting rid of freon was :rolleyes:

What is cleaner than burning water? You got your hydrogen, and you got your oxygen. It is very renewable as well.

They didn't mention how much power you need to put into it to get the water to seperate. it aint free. I believe its the same thing the guys were doing when they said they created cold fusion

Well you don't need to much power to separate water. To burn it, it sounds like you just need radio waves, i have no idea what frequency or anything, but he just "stumbled" upon it, so it can't be something far out there. It isnt free, but its renewable, whereas gas is not.
