Slowing climate change may prove possible as a result of cheap green breakthrough power generation.

Engines are being prototyped that are designed to run 24/7 on atmospheric heat, an untapped solar source of energy thousands of times as abundant as fossil fuels.

Fuel-free desktop piston engines will demonstrate that fuel can be cost-effectively superseded. See www.aesopinstitute.org

Most scientists doubt such engines are possible, since they believe the Second Law of Thermodynamics cannot be circumvented. However, a practical path toward such engines was opened in numerous papers by Jacob Wainwright more than 100 years ago. He was ignored until now.

Piston engines needing no fuel by an inventor who earlier patented an engine that circumvented The Second law, but was commercially impractical, will prove Wainwright was correct. See SECOND LAW SURPRISES on the same website.

Once prototypes are completed and validated by independent labs, desktop engines that need no fuel can be scaled to provide emergency generators, power homes and propel every type of vehicle. They will open a fast path to rapid replacement of fossil fuels.

The average American family of four might save $8,000 per year - it that proves correct, a groundswell of public support will be unstoppable.
