The Steorn 300 Return Empty Handed

Remember six months ago when free energy company Steorn touted their new magnetic torque device that would provide clean, baby-kissing energy to power the Earth? Yeah, I had tucked it back in the recesses of my brain as well.

At the time, they wanted to gather a panel of 300 independent scientists to evaluate their claims and report back on the feasibility. It looks like they got all of 22 scientists to evaluate their device, and they have (thankfully) returned the verdict that the device is not producing energy. Naturally, Steorn is ignoring this not-so-subtle clue and still plans to release their device some time in 2009. ]
