Marv your idea is close, but I think for the power you are implying you may want to consider a sterling engine for that application. lower power and at a constant rpm and its almost free to run.

interesting, and maybe just crazy enough to work.

infrastructure would be no problem, handling and distibuting distilled water is simple. Rainwater collection is pretty much free once you build the system.

controlling rust might be the biggest problem assuming that the basic system works.

It'd take some development work but probably less that whats being put into hybrid and hydorgen technologys.

Yea...I still have to take Reading 101 at Ferris.

I'm with Yetti though, it's not as simple as the article states. Kinda like watching Spike's Powerblock...everything looks easy, because they edit out all the swearing and tool throwing.
