Not that we mean to imply enviro-weenies are stupid or anything

The Toronto Star tells the story of a college dropout who claims to have invented a perpetual motion machine machine which isn't called a perpetual motion machine but supposedly has quasi-perpetual motionistic qualities.

The highlight for me? Particularly applicable during a provincial election where again a few nutjobs seem to think a Green vote is a good vote, is this passage:

In 1999 he ran unsuccessfully as a candidate for the Green Party of Ontario, deciding a year later to run as an independent in the federal election.

Today, Heins is focused on showing his invention to anybody willing to see it, in hopes that somebody smarter than him will give it credibility.
Sound awfully familiar? Like the secret agenda of every Green Party supporter known to exist?
