In the 1980s, inventor Joseph Newman developed an electromagnetic perpetual motion device that produced energy while requiring little energy to run. Although this invention was potentially a power source that might eliminate dependence on fossil fuels and the further pursuit of nuclear energy, Newman, hoping to put in place a source of energy that was free to all people, spent the rest of his life engaged in battle with the U.S. Patent Office.
