Water Fuel

There have been several pseudo scientists around the world generating power from water already. They're appearing everywhere. For example:

In the US

In Japan:

Even in the Philippines:

Unfortunately, the process of making fuel from water breaks the Second Rule of Thermodynamics.

When these systems were tested, all they proved is that you CAN separate hydrogen from water, and that hydrogen can be used as fuel. However, it takes more energy to separate the hydrogen from the water, than the power the hydrogen actually generates. Thus you would be better of directly using the battery or other power source that they used to separate the hydrogen from the water in the first place.

One can but hope there is are alternate fuel sources to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, but so far water isn't the answer as much as we want it to be.
