Will the power generated by burning the water be more than the power required to run the radio generator?

What about the leftover salt? I could see that causing problems. Very cool nonetheless.

its plausible for the science to work, probably not in the automotive world, but there are possibilities for power production depending on the cost of energy needed to create the process, in reality it could work for a lot of stuff, so i wouldnt say its sad, id say you dont have an open mind for the sciences

this will never happen. The major players in this world are all backed by oil, they thrive off of controlling it. They will KILL who ever tries and starts this project. too bad though........That is an awesome IDEA
