This scheme of combustion to get power makes me sick to think of - it is so wasteful. It is just the old, foolish Prometheus idea, and the father of Prometheus was a baboon. We should utilize natural forces and thus get all of our power. Sunshine is a form of energy, and the winds and the tides are manifestations of energy. Do we use them? Oh, no! We burn up wood and coal, as renters burn up the front fence for fuel. We live like squatters, not as if we owned the property.
-- Thomas Edison
