Oil Cartels exist only in the minds of those that depend on them Ergo FE con-men These oil cartels have been on the ball for some time. You have to respect a group that conspires to protect itself before it is born. With the laws of thermodynamic predating the internal combustion engine and electrical production and distribution it is clear that the Evil Oil Folk must be witches. They foresaw the future and made these Arbitrary "laws" to protect themselves before they had a business to protect. -FYI that was also Sarcasm- in case you could not tell. These Free energy People make lots of promises take peoples money and do not deliver. Eric Krieg has spent some time fighting these con-men. Here are few of his sites. He offers a 10k prize that is matched by others for proof of free energy via perpetual motion AKA overunity. His site has lots of great information unfortunately his site suffers from a bad case of link rot. http://www.phact.org/e/freetest.html http://www.mitchellware.com/e/freefaq.htm Here is an article in Skeptical Enquirer regarding "free energy". http://www.csicop.org/si/9707/krieg.html http://www.phact.org/e/freetest.html Since beating the laws of physics (I.E. the laws of thermodynamics) is demonstrable with a "free energy" machine it qualifies for the 1,000,000+ Paranormal JREF prize. Why is it these "free energy" messiahs need to take middle class "investors" money when they could claim these prizes?
