Perpetual and Kinetic Energy: The Solution to the Dependency on Foreign Oil

Hundreds of years ago some of the first natural energy machines were created such as the unbalanced wheel, the waterwheel, and the perpetual lamp. Now those same inventions are gaining attention once again as the United States is looking for alternatives in order to rid the dependency upon foreign oil. These perpetual energy machines are also referred to as kinetic energy and even ocean energy.

In today’s economy families are constantly searching for new ways to save money and hold on to their dollars as inflation rises and the cost of living increases.  To help this however, scientists and experts are continuously researching different alternatives in order to rid the United States from the dependency on foreign oil and to help create even more jobs.  The most important topic currently being researched is how to increase the use of natural energy also known as perpetual and kinetic energy. 

Perpetual energy is the kinetic energy that is naturally created by planetary movements such as ocean tidal waves, salinity, and even the temperature differences found between the depths of the ocean.  Kinetic energy gathered from the ocean is often referred to as ‘ocean energy’ however kinetic energy can be also gathered from energy created from gravitational pull and energy delivered from the sun.  What is most unique about perpetual energy is that it can never run out unlike most other resources. 

Hundreds of years ago some of the first perpetual energy machines were created such as the perpetual lamp, the unbalanced wheel, and the waterwheel.  The perpetual lamp can create both light and heat and never drains a reservoir in order to do so.  The unbalanced wheel, which is much similar to the waterwheel, uses gravity to stay in motion thus creating an endless supply of energy as long as the wheel is always turning.  However, the unbalanced wheel does need an initial push of energy in order to maintain the energy that is created from its own torque. 

Tapping into the ocean’s energy was first proposed by the French physicist Jacques Arsene d’ Arsonval in 1881.  By 1931 George Claude, a student of Jacques, constructed the first successful perpetual energy plant in Cuba which generated 22 kW of electricity from a low pressure turbine.  However, the finding of new oil, not only in the United States but the rest of the world as well, prevented the perpetual energy plant from gaining popularity as back then oil was available for a much cheaper price.  Also in 1931 Nikola Tesla released ‘Our Future Motive Power’ concluding that it would be too costly for any type of large scale development of the perpetual energy machine thus making it uneconomical.  In 1974 the United States adopted the idea of a perpetual energy machine and stationed it in Hawaii specifically because of the temperature difference between the surface water and the cooler deeper water.  However, in 1981 Japan created a perpetual energy plant that created enough net power to supply enough electricity to a school and a few other various office buildings. 

Scientists are working harder and harder as the cost of oil increases due to political affairs around the globe.  The benefit of this is that one day soon the United States may be the first country to officially adopt the use of perpetual energy plants and convert entirely over ridding the dependency on foreign oil permanently.
