I found the article on the front page “Power from the air? (Nov 6) by Fran Ryan Intriguing but mystifying. I put a link on Facebook and asked my friends if anyone could figure out how it worked – I certainly couldn’t from the article. A respected IT friend said it looks like a likely scam. With his help, I found a relevant Reddit thread that seems to confirm that a system like this is almost certainly impractical..

I have no direct evidence that this is an intentional scam; but the evidence from physicists on Reddit strongly suggests that this is at best a misguided effort by an inventor who does not understand thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and heat transfer. The company is privately owned and, as of July 2020, had just seven investors, according to pitchbook.com; I’m concerned that our local newspaper putting this generally positive article on the front page could lead innocent people to make a possibly reckless investment.
