    My favorite part is how a bathtub full of seawater could give as much power as 40 coal cars.

      It gets better.  Deuterium is .0156% of the hydrogen is seawater, yet is the usable portion for fusion.  If seawater was 100% heavy water (water using deuterium rather than hydrogen1) it would take what?  A teaspoonful to match those 40 cars?

      And if the heavy water were to be electrolyzed into oxygen and deuterium and then the deuterium liquified it might take a drop?

      Ironically enough considering your recent comment on the smoking tax forum if this technology does develop successfully mining the moon for He3 will probably become financially viable.

        I really don't know much about it, but wouldn't it be much easier to just what we needed from seawater than mining the moon?
