Isn't water mostly high-energy hydrogen? Lots of energy there.
from what I understand, scientists are working to extract energy from a vacuume, as well as from the spin state of atoms. See, each particle has an infinite amount of inertia, resulting from the spin of its atoms and the force form the big bang.
So, there is energy everywhere, just waiting to be tapped.
