 Tesla on critical water resource management,
* * *

In Colorado I succeeded one day in precipitating a dense fog.  There was a mist outside, but when I turned on the current the cloud in the laboratory became so dense that when the hand was held only a few inches from the face it could not be seen.  I am positive in my conviction that we can erect a plant of proper design in an arid region, work it according to certain observations and rules, and by its means draw from the ocean unlimited amounts of water for irrigation and power purposes. . . . -- PRESENTATION OF THE EDISON MEDAL TO NIKOLA TESLA, MINUTES OF THE ANNUAL MEETING OF THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS, HELD AT THE ENGINEERING SOCIETIES BUILDING, NEW YORK CITY, FRIDAY EVENING, MAY 18, 1917.

Every human effort must of necessity create a disturbance.  What difference is there in essence, between the commotion produced by any revolutionary idea or improvement and that of a wireless transmitter?  The spectre of interference has been conjured by Hertzwave or radio telegraphy in which attunement is absolutely impossible, simply because the effect diminishes rapidly with distance.  But  to my system of energy transmission, based on the use of impulses not sensibly diminishing with distance, perfect attunement and the higher artifice of individualization are practicable.  As ever, the ghost will vanish with the wireless dawn. -- POSSIBILITIES OF WIRELESS, New York Times, October 22, 1907.
