    I assume he's waffling on about Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle. To call it a law is just plain ignorance, even you would be embarrassed about it. It states that the more precisely you measure the position of a particle, the less precisely you can know its momentum or velocity).

    As for 'Schrödinger's Law' that's a linear partial differential equation that describes the evolution of a quantum state in a similar way to Newton’s laws (the second law in particular) in classical mechanics. It has only ever been solved for the hydrogen atom though, although ITN will tell you otherwise

    He has some very odd ideas regarding thermodynamics and atmospheric physics.

    There's gold in those oil wells!

    ‘Gold Hydrogen’ Is an Untapped Resource in Depleted Oil Wells

    The fuel can be produced by adding bacteria to spent drill holes—meaning there are thousands of potential hydrogen sources worldwide.
