Submission + - Salt water as fuel? 1

SpryGuy writes: FTA:

"For obvious reasons, scientists long have thought that salt water couldn't be burned. So when an Erie man announced he'd ignited salt water with the radio-frequency generator he'd invented, some thought it a was a hoax. John Kanzius, a Washington County native, tried to desalinate seawater with a generator he developed to treat cancer, and it caused a flash in the test tube. Within days, he had the salt water in the test tube burning like a candle, as long as it was exposed to radio frequencies."

Is this the Cold Fusion of the new millenium? Or a new power source for the future? The obvious question is posed, but not answered, in the article:

"One immediate question is energy efficiency: The energy the RF generator uses vs. the energy output from burning hydrogen."
