He avoided embarassment by running out of funds. He believed that humidity could be condensed out of the atmosphere by the electromagnetic field. His exact words were:
“The time is very near when we shall have the precipitation of the moisture of the atmosphere under complete control, and then it will be possible to draw unlimited quantities of water from the oceans, develop any desired amount of energy, and completely transform the globe by irrigation and intensive farming. A greater achievement of man through the medium of electricity can hardly be imagined”
You have to remember that they knew very little at his time. Much of what he did that worked, we use extensively. We actually do far better than he could as we now know about harmonic antennas. The rest of what he wrote of simply did not work that well. You won’t find magical technologies in his writings.
