Ambient Energy

Energy is all around us. That is, it is ambient. It cannot be destroyed, but it can be converted. The first law of thermodynamics is about as basic as you can get in the discussion of energy. Wouldn't it make sense to find ways to harvest this ambient energy? Wouldn't it make sense to find ways to expend as little energy as possible in harvesting such energy? In developing energy-efficient ways of harvesting ambient energy?

Instead we tend to devote incredible amounts of energy to harvesting non-renewable resources such as the Alberta tar sands. Is it worth the energy we spend to harvest a resource that damages the environment, and which we will eventually have to find a replacement for anyway?

Fortunately, some people are working on harvesting ambient, non-liear, self-sustaining energy.

We need to think differently before we can act differently. Remember the common definition of insanity: doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result.
