How can we use salt for energy?

    I have not heard of using salt for energy, per say, but I have heard of using a radio frequency generator to break the bonds of salt water to produce hydrogen and oxygen. This hydrogen gas can be burned for energy. The only problem associated with this genius idea is that it is most likely not an energy positive process. The energy it takes to run a radio frequency generator is likely more than the energy produced by burning the salt water. Below is a link to a good article on the process, and contains a video showing the generator in use. This technology could potentially hold a lot of promise, however, if inventors can invent a RF generator that uses less energy than it produces in the burning of the salt water.
