    You know me - skeptical as always.

    Sounds good, but the article is so vague as to make it sound like the company is speculating on a discovery that is yet to come. And the discovery they are talking about is THE technological discovery of all time - the one that eliminates the entire world's energy problems.

    Excuse me for not holding my breath.

    Still, the company is one of reasonable credibility.

    I agree. My guess is that this is a ploy for money; not to say that they their claim is bogus. It does sound highly speculative at best.
