**Loss of energy under gravity??**

(i am ignoring all forces except gravity)

by conservation of energy-at any 2 points in time the sum of E

_{kinetic}and E

_{potential}is the same.

at infinity

E

_{potential}is nearly zero, E

_{kinetic}is also nearing zero(or is it)??

then am i flawed in my above statement or is energy conservation violated??

here gravity is doing negative work on the object so both kinetic and potential energies are going down

how so?
