And some wonder why aren't producing more scientists. Then I see this belief that one can gain free energy by simply putting a windmill on the hood of your car. You see, a windmilll acts lie a sail. Now would you put a sail on the hood of your car? The Law of the Conservation of Eberrgy states ....

In response to comments by DT, Elwood. I like your thinking. There are numerous patents on wind turbines placed on the outside of an automobile. However any external appendage would create more aerodynamic drag the benefit produced. I however hold the patent on a highly efficient, ultra low drag wind turbine that fits behind the grill of automobile where it will produce no additional drag. The design adapts to current automotive styling and in fact is a more efficient way of handling airflow through the grill as opposed to letting the airflow strike radiators, engine block and firewall. A car fitted with my device would have a lower drag coefficient, lighter weight and less friction induced drag at the tires than the same automobile powered by a gasoline or diesel engine. And yes, airflow at 25 miles per hour and up will produce a hell of a lot of electricity.
