Free Energy taking the P***!

I've covered the development of free energy and perpetual motion technology, and the political issues associated with it, for a long time now; see background links below. What surprises me is that obtaining free energy is not always a complicated business requiring billion dollar CERN-scale engineering and thousands of top scientists working day and night. It emerges from very simple systems and even exists in nature. Occasionally it turns up in the most unlikely situations. None are as unlikely as the most recent potential breakthrough. A possible source of free energy has been discovered by a group of schoolgirls in Nigeria. Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin and Bello Eniola are all fourteen years old and are studying chemistry at their school in Lagos, Nigeria's biggest city; like millions of other girls do. However these four ingenious young ladies have decided to put what they've learned in their lessons to practical use in order to improve people's quality of life in their own country and in the rest of the world by building an esoteric energy generator. The fuel for their generator is a very common substance that all people produce continuously in vast quantities; and then not only dispose of, but dispose of as urgently as possible: urine. The machine works by putting the urine into an electrolytic cell that breaks down the urea compound in the urine and extracts the hydrogen gas. Interestingly "cold fusion" was also invented during an electrolysis experiment, see: http://hpanwo-tv.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/martin-fleischmann-dies.html. The hydrogen is then filtered to remove impurities; a simple water filter does the trick. Then it is stored in a gas cylinder, a quite ordinary one like those used for barbecues. Although I imagine it would need extra tight seals to prevent the hydrogen, a very thin gas, from leaking. The hydrogen cylinders at my hospital needed special seals. From the cylinder the hydrogen is desiccated by a borax filter, a soap-like chemical that removes all moisture, and then it ends up in a hydrogen-powered generator that spins a dynamo and you have electrical energy. Building a device like this must be done with great care and you must always use safety valves on all the lines in case the hydrogen leaks and ignites. That could cause a major explosion or fire. However once these hazards are overcome you'll find the system can work continuously for six hours on just a one litre of urine. Nigeria is undergoing a major power distribution crisis with over half the population of 160 million people not having access to a twenty-four hour supply. Many people, especially in rural areas, have no electricity at all. This machine could solve those problems and quite literally light up the nation. The crucial question is: Does the generator provide more power than that which is needed to run the electrolytic cell and any other inputs? A simple way to find out would be to feed the dynamo output back to the cell, unplug it from the mains and if the machine keeps running then it has achieved "overunity" or free energy. I would not discount this because the girls' invention is not unlike Stanley Meyer's fuel cell and that did work. The school chemistry teacher also was impressed by it. The machine was also displayed at the 2012 "Maker Faire Africa" exhibition, see: http://makerfaireafrica.com/2012/11/06/a-urine-powered-generator/, and: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDwp-kYjUGI. More study needs to be done in order to find out if this device is a genuine free energy generator. Other people will need to build more prototypes and see if they work, otherwise the idea will simply be flushed down the toilet... excuse the pun. This very angry and rhetoric-loaded skeptic webpage claims that the invention is an elaborate hoax, see: http://www.dailytech.com/Debunked+Beneath+the+Lies+Nigerian+Pee+Generator+Is+Still+Pissing+Into+the+Wind/article37511.htm. What if it is a double-bluff though? If the machine does turn out to be the real deal then there's another problem to be overcome; suppression. The girls might be approached by men in dark suits with a lot of money in exchange for "exclusive development rights". Either that or threats against them and their families. In the case of Stanley Meyer, Eugene Mallove, Bruce de Palma and several others, this threat was carried out. I hope somebody the girls know understands this danger and is watching their backs.
