“Although the present gasoline engine is far from being ideally simple, it has proved itself eminently practical, as is evidenced by the enormous extent of the automobile industry founded on its use. To replace this engine, and particularly the much improved type which is surely coming, will call for a new principal in primary or storage batteries. In these fields we have advanced but little since the discoveries of the early pioneers, but the announcement of a new principle may come any day, and it will be the death knell of the heat automobile engine, for no such machine can ever equal the electric motor in simplicity, safety and ease and perfection of control.”

“It should be borne in mind that electrical energy obtained by harnessing a waterfall is probably fifty times more effective than fuel energy. Since this is the most perfect way of rendering the sun’s energy available, the direction of the future material development of man is clearly indicated. He will live on “white coal.” Like a babe to the mother’s breast will he cling to his waterfall. “Give us our daily waterfall,“ will be the prayer of the coming generations. Deus futurus est deus aquae deiectus!”
