CBS News: Electricity Power Generation
Simply by harvesting electricity from the atmosphere
It explains: “Our Founding Fathers knew that free Energy means Free People”.
Microsoft announces the official release of their most anticipated product ever.
Plug in your entire home without using any actual electricity.
And so it continues.
It’s a standard scam – offer something for nothing which in this case is free electricity.
Include the name Microsoft as everyone has heard of the brains at Microsoft and include the name CBS as everyone knows TV news.
It is true there is plenty of electricity in the atmosphere as thunderstorms and lightning will testify.
But you cannot power your home on that any more than the fictitious Dr. Frankenstein can re-animate a dead human body with a lightning bolt.
Certainly Microsoft have nothing to do with these scams and have never announced the creation of such products.
I assume this scam works because so many people are desperate to reduce their home electricity bills. But it’s totally fake.
