    The guy was on Daily Planet last night as well. I think they said something about testing it this week for its efficiency. If its at 70 % or more it will be considered a viable source of energy. You can kiss Alberta's economy good bye in about 5 to 10 years.

    Unfortunately it requires way more power to produce the wave energy to break down the water than combusting the water produces. Even the inventor admits that it's a long way off from being a viable energy source.
