'The Sea of Energy in Which the Earth Floats' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 13, 2017

In 'The Sea of Energy in Which The Earth Floats', John E. Moray writes that 'Enough energy is coming to The Earth to light over 1.5 million (1,693,600) 100-watt lamps for every human being on The Earth today. Without the use of a prime mover, no fuel of any kind need be taken as a dead load since this energy can be 'picked up' directly by ocean liners, airplanes, or any form of transportation. Heat, light and power can be made available for use in all kinds of building and for all kinds of machinery. An example would be to pump water onto the desert lands, the power source being only a fraction of the weight of any steam plant or any kind of engine in use today, and all this at a fraction of the current cost.'
