BlackLight: A New Era Coming?

BlackLight's physics-defying promise: Cheap power from water

An entrepreneur with $60 million in venture funding says he's found an endless source of cheap energy. Trouble is, it violates the laws of quantum physics.

My take: When McCain and Obama talk about energy independence, I want to know that something like this is on the radar screen. If we are going to invest in new technologies, lets make the investment that shifts the entire paradigm. The academic community seems to be scoffing, but whether the theory is understood or not, if it works, it works. If this technology is for real, a new era could be about to dawn and it sounds like we'll know in about a year.
