this is cool-

That same energy is then used to help the vehicle travel back up the hill. Phys
reports, “If all goes as planned, the electric dumper truck will even
harvest more electricity while traveling downhill than it needs for the
ascent. Instead of consuming fossil fuels, it would then feed surplus electricity into the grid.”

a perpetual motion truck??

okay I assume it’s heavier going down the hill then dumps its load at the bottom, but still

Leveling hilly terrain is the future of energy

a sterling engine but for tiny elevation differentials instead of temperature

you could use that to extract energy from ocean waves; we must flatten the oceans!

if you do that efficiently enough, do you start sapping momentum from the moon?
“Lunar Orbit Decay” sounds like an even worse problem than Global Warming

harnessing all the energy from the moon’s orbit and bringing it to rest ever so gently where it belongs, on Australia.

listen I support it

So will Australia.
