Understanding the power of EM
    Iron ore was used in the first compasses; the electromagnetic field that guides
    birds and fish. This magnetism is a powerful generator in the ionosphere.
    Theoretically, if a line of copper were run down from the ionosphere to a
    generator the voltage would be gargantuan and limitless. Many Navy Subs
    use magnetic drive instead of screw props. Salt water is run through the
    magnetic turbines and ion in the sea water propels the sub. A hydraulic magnetic
    driven car is possible on this same principle. Imagine a car that runs on sea water.
    Magnetic turbines drive our power plants. Nuclear power plants are steam driven
    turbines. It is possible to construct tidal turbine power plants, using the magnetic
    power of sea water.

    But, this runs counter to the oil driven economy.
    Oil would still be needed for plastics and fertilizers.
    However, the impulse in our present energy policy is to
    use non-fossil fuel as an alternative power source.
    And so we police oil fields in the Middle East and
    hope that the oil never runs out.
