It may seem almost too good to be true but a school boy from Widdlehole has become the youngest recipient of the Nobel Prize for Ecology by solving a complex problem of physics which, he says, should be able to provide the whole world with unlimited free electricity.
After several months of studying Ecology in his Science classes at school, 13 year old Brad Majors realised that he had already seen the answer to the problem in a local field where some travellers were camping.
“I suddenly knew how to get free energy,” said Majors. “All you do is string jump leads up from your house to the electric pole or pylon nearby, and you’ve got all the free energy you need!”
The young scientist’s father, Colonel Majors, said “I’m very proud, obviously. He’s saved the world!”
