A SRILANKAN INVENTOR CLAIMS HE HAS MADE A GENERATOR OF HYDROGEN FROM WATER CAPABLE OF RUNNING A CAR
By Walter Jayawardhana
A young enterprising inventor in Colombo, Sri Lanka claimed in front
of his countrys Prime Minister that he had invented a miracle
converter of hydrogen from drinking water to run a motor car using a
Sri Lankas Sinhala language newspaper, The Divaina, said Prime
Minister Ratnasiri Wickramanayaka invited to his office the inventor
who claimed that a miracle hydrogen generator making use of water he
made is capable of running an internal combustion engine replacing gasoline.
The newspaper said, the young inventor was present inside the Prime
Ministers office as he was invited to be there by the Prime Minister.
The newspaper further said the prime minister came to know about the
new invention through Sinhala language newspaper reports and invited
Thushara to demonstrate it.
Earlier newspaper reports said how the inventor ran cars with water
after borrowing cars from others since he did not have his own car to
convert and test drive. The reports said how the owners always wanted
him to return their vehicles.
According to the Divaina news story the inventor told the prime Minister
how he could not buy his own car to convert to hydrogen since he did
not have money .
Thushara Edirisinghe, reportedly told the Prime Minister that his converter
could run a car for 80 kilometers from one liter of water.
A molecule of water is made from two atoms of hydrogen and one atom
of oxygen. The water molecule could be broken into the two basic elements
and hydrogen could be used in the internal combustion engine, Thushara
Businessman Vijaya Undugoda said in the Prime Ministers office
that he was ready to provide a car for further test the apparatus and
some money for other experimental expenses, the newspaper reported.
If Thushara Edirisinghes invention is true, that could also provide a solution for another problem, the global warming created by burning fossil fuels like petroleum , which are hydrocarbons made from ancient animals died in a catastrophe. Another fossilized fuel is coal made from ancient forests buried in earthquakes. Both fuels add carbons to our atmosphere through a process called green house effect that warms up the world melting icecaps on the poles and creating great weather disasters, scientists have claimed.
