How Nikola Tesla could have saved the world with a powerful, limitless energy source

Among truth-seekers, science junkies and those of us who are constantly looking to expand our understanding of new technologies, Nikola Tesla is a hero.

One of the greatest minds in the history of the world, Tesla’s ideas and inventions are still relevant today — and many of the technological luxuries we have in 2016 are a direct result of Tesla’s work. Of all of Tesla’s concepts, the one that’s receiving the most discussion lately is that of a system of endless, “limitless” energy.

For the past few decades, people all across the world have been discussing the need for renewable energy sources. When our natural resources run out, that’s the end of the road, so investing in a system of energy production that will never run out would be extremely beneficial in the long term.

In the late 1800s, Tesla began conceiving a concept to create a form of energy creation that was limitless. Tesla was a brilliant man — and was certainly aware that eventually the earth would run dry of its natural resources — so his desire to build a system that made these resources unnecessary was powerful.

Tesla was quoted with saying, “Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static, or kinetic? If static our hopes are in vain; if kinetic – and this we know it is, for certain – then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheel work of nature.”

Though Tesla himself never determined precisely how to put the concept into motion, it was later expanded on by Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity. Two brilliant minds came together to perfect a concept that could save the world.

We need to begin following in Tesla footsteps and promoting renewable energy. We’re quickly running out of time to develop new ways to make our industrialized world run — and it could potentially become dangerous if we don’t figure out a solution soon.
