In this video, at about 24 minutes, they find a negative charged water layer near a plastic surface, and positive charged beyond it. They insert electrodes and measure a current flow:
Now, I don’t care how small it is, if you can get charge separation, you can make a battery.
They also find the ‘exclusion zone’ has different light absorption and different (low) IR emissivity. This has some significant implications for the whole AGW IR theory (as I’m sure they do not allow for this). At about 39 minutes they find that the charge separation comes from absorbed photons. Even IR photons.
So a ‘to be determined’ would be if you still get a current in the dark… but it looks like ‘no’. However:
Regardless of why, be it IR or thermal, and regardless of how big; the charge is there and the size scale is very large compared to what we do with semiconductors and thin film devices. So we ought to be able to make a micro-cell that captures that charge separation into conductors. At that point, it is just a question of ganging them up to make more voltage and amperage.
Am I missing something here, or is that a real “possible”?
It doesn’t matter if the energy is being taken from ambient heat, just let some metal conduct air heat in to the battery. It doesn’t matter if it needs light, we have lots of light. At least as far as I can tell, all it takes is some very small scale engineering.
It can’t be that simple. There’s got to be something missing… doesn’t there? At 54 minutes they claim it can be done…
