Nikola Tesla was the father of the modern electricity system. A man ahead of his time, he was mocked by a scientific community often unable to comprehend the significance of his innovations or the purpose behind his controversial experiments. Tesla, who predicted the threat now known as global warming more than 100 years ago, was labelled a mad scientist in his later years and died a failed businessman. Mad Like Tesla explores some of the latest and most 'out there' energy innovations and the entrepreneurs and academics behind them.
