why is TESLA science, “BAD SCIENCE”?
I’m pretty much a fan of him…am I wrong, or the legend and tales about this odd scientist maybe are?

Actually, Stefano, this was one of my weaker posts, and I wondered when someone would call me on it.
Tesla was a brilliant scientist. The categories “bad science, gullible, misapprehension” all refer to the FREE ELECTRICITY! hucksters. They use Tesla’s name to sell what amounts to a perpetual motion machine, a device that somehow generates more electricity than it uses.
When Tesla spoke about free electricity, his plan was to transmit electricity in a wireless manner, without charge. However, you still had to buy a receiver in order to use it.
You can still find FREE ELECTRICITY! on the web. Try the International Tesla Electric Company.
Therefore: Tesla = awesomeness. ITEC = bad science. Hope this helps.

I was wondering about this post also. I dunno about the “free electricity” bit but wireless electricity based on Tesla’s work is finally near-to-market:
