I think electric cars are a great idea but you still have to generate the electricity. You cant see electricity but its there, absence of proof is not proof of absence. Please if you have time and are interested watch all the videos. These people all end up dead quickly, thats not a theory its reality. the guy with the water bike says that they wont let him do it. please check the david dingle video if you havnt already. the last one.
I never said the technology doesn't work. I've seen presentations on it, I've been taught the basics how it works, I know it does exist. It just isn't good technology, that is why you haven't heard about it, I heard about it maybe my sophomore year as a chemical engineer major, so it isn't as though there has been a vast conspiracy about it that until only recently has been starting to lift. It is just an inefficient technology with a lot of issues, that even under the best case scenario is a worse option than an electric car from a green engineering standpoint.
Also, you don't want to have your water infrastructure powering cars anyways. That is just asking for trouble. Even if you could power cars just with water, you couldn't do it in a lot of places anyways because a lot of areas do not have enough water to do so.
As startling as it is, there isn't a vast conspiracy against this technology. It is just an inefficient, impractical technology that people who don't have the specialized training to understand why it doesn't work well have latched onto because you can actually get it to visibly work well enough that people don't realize there is more to it then that. Some people have got it into their heads that water can be a magic, non-polluting fuel, and that would be really great if it could be, but that is just not the case (it would be awfully nice if we could make electric powered power plants, as well, just because it is nice doesn't make it possible).
Just for basic comparison as to why this technology doesn't work well. Regardless of fuel, an internal combustion engine tops out at about 37% efficiency (more realistically, I think it is usually around 20% efficiency). Most electric engines are between 80%-90% efficient, I think on the scale of car engines it is over 90% for electric engines. You have to get energy from somewhere. If companies were conspiring against anything, it would be electrical engines because they actually already work fairly well.
Then again, maybe I'm in on it and that's just what we want you to think.
