New Source of Energy (for everyone?)

(First of all, I hope this is to the right list).

A new way of harnessing energy has recently been discovered. The
contraption is made of different wires, regular water, and tiny beads
coated with Zinc(?), Copper, and Paladium. According to reports, which
have been verified by indepedent scientific experiments, the contraption
consumes 1 watt of energy to produce 200 watts.

I saw this on "Good Morning America" this morning, and the first
thing that popped to my mind was that the corps that produce energy
related goods aren't gonna like this, just like they don't like solar and
wind power. Then the reporter said about the same thing: the experiment
is good in the lab, but could it be made "cost-effective" for everyday
use? Why do I somehow doubt it will be made cost-effective? (Or even it
somehow is, there will be numerous laws governing it's use. Kinda like
individuals in cities can't own windmills because they are too tall and
could fall over in the neighbor's yard, thus posing a safety hazard).

If anybody knows anything else, or if they have more direct
access, keeping abreast of this new issue would be quite wise. I'll see
what I can do.

The strength of our institutions may depend upon this case,
because there is only one step beyond republicanism-that is Anarchy. See
that we never take that step, and let us stand today as we have stood for
years, firmly planted on the laws of our country.
