List of Free-Energy Failures

Over the centuries and still to this day, charlatans or delusional folks claim to have the answer to all our energy needs by creating something out of nothing. Failure can be useful for learning but some people don't seem to learn from their own failures or from history, but charlatans have learned to fool the gullible.

This is a very incomplete list. If you have suggestions for corrections or a particular device and persons/companies involved, please let me know at thorgolucky@gmail.com, thanks!
