A new climate-saving energy source made possible by a revolutionary scientific breakthrough "super material" will be unveiled tonight.
Details have been deliberately kept sketchy, but the founder of the British Inventors' Society, Kane Kramer, dropped some tantalizing hints in a London Independent piece.
UPDATE: What did he say? Well, not much. Here's an update.
Al Gore will be on hand to unveil the new technology at a high-powered, high-priced Fortune Forum foundation dinner where the guests are estimated to be worth more than $200 billion, according to the Independent. Gore, who is best known as the former Vice President/failed presidential candidate turned Nobel Peace Prize-winning global warming campaigner, has also joined an influential Silicon Valley investment firm specializing in clean tech.
Here are some of the ways Kramer described the energy technology, which he said is the result of a decade of lab work:
Kind of makes you wish you could afford the $100,000 ticket that gets you into Gore's VIP party, doesn't it? Food will probably be pretty good, too.
But, then again, if the technology is truly as promising as Kramer makes it sound, we'll all be part of the party before long.
