THAT THE PATENT OFFICE would reject out-of-hand any application for a perpetual motion machine.

What the fern are you talking about?
What else would you call a desire to re-invent so many obsolete technologies to satisfy some chimerical brainfart pipedream of environmental purity? Windmills? Hello! Stopped using wind a hundred years ago. Because it — like — doesn’t work as well as steam. Electric cars? Hello! Where you going to get your electricity? Unicorn farts?
Gotta be that these people believe in some kind of fairy tale, wish-fulfillment perpetual motion machine.
“Believe in” being the operative term.
Excellent point, Dolly!
