Has actually become one of been most fiercely debated topics in the energy community.
He joins us here live in the Fox Business exclusive welcome to fox thank you so much of being here but first let's get -- design and you've won awards for this you have to meet the president -- but it's Katrina relief decide what to come up with this idea.

The fibonacci sequence allows a -- to -- to some better as it moves this guy.
So until are not about all this I started getting to work and yeah.
You applied a natural formula the fibonacci number that -- -- number sequence to this design and and you came up with a formula that seemed to work.
Now he did read these so called experts partially -- -- they said you made a major mistake right in which was what.
-- I guess I and measured the wrong kind of fishing voltage forget Powell did vs power so efforts I've measured voltage.
And I guess -- -- -- online there's a lot of debate on it.
So -- When that so I did a second test -- build another model.
Corrected the errors mistake -- -- made and of course you found out that your critics while they're very quick to jump but you're when you're wrong when your right what happens they suddenly don't say this right it's.
So he won an award correct yen and and you got to meet the president what was that like.

Home and -- -- I'm trying to finish my Patton where it would revenue agent to do that up a if you gotta pace but we -- patent pending OK so long.
Scientists continue my research and we're gonna start opening com.
So we -- need investors to give us.
Money so I can continue my -- itself and by the way the best revenge against critics is the market place.
If the market place approves and I understand that divide the country device actually interest in your designed they have these.
These roadways in which they they're gonna be use intensive solar panels.
They wanna use your design correct so they have this wrap these around the -- in Dubai and we're traffic goes around them but the -- -- -- -- they have like statues and flowers now Freddie.
So they want to put my -- design that's okay who's negotiate out.
Sure they are hello negotiating the deal better get -- have brought home.
We haven't really what -- out yet.
Okay what you need is probably more investment money correct yeah I think income that is and that is in the wings -- should become I didn't hear a lot of that yeah I thought a mine and here's a proud father he was gonna -- in the wings and hold these track what I said it must be -- -- -- he's still needs to clean his room.
-- -- correct reckons he just turned fourteen just I'll let -- -- Well let me just quickly tell you you need to learn this term sandhill road uh huh that's where all the venture capitalists in Silicon Valley are they need to get to -- those -- and.
Good blockade and graduation in an interview was well you -- a great zone banking group Ukraine's ID put -- -- it just -- like trees and then they catch the light would -- -- if Dubai is -- -- -- -- that oil money by a go forward for Angolan oil as.
Thanks -- -- Dwyer fourteen years old and already on his way.
Good -- thank god.
