"Nikola Tesla was more than just the inspiration for a hair metal band,  he was also an undisputed genius. In 1899, he figured out a way to  bypass fossil-fuel-burning power plants and power lines, proving that  "free energy" could be harnessed using ionization in the upper  atmosphere to produce electrical vibrations. J.P. Morgan, who had been  funding Tesla’s research, had a bit of buyer’s remorse when he realized  that free energy for all wasn’t as profitable as, say, actually charging  people for every watt of energy use. Morgan then drove another nail in  free energy’s coffin by chasing away other investors, ensuring Tesla’s  dream would die."
