Future Energy eNews Editor Honored

Thomas Valone, PhD, is being honored as one of the four plenary speakers on Friday, April 15, the opening day of the symposium, on the topic of "Tesla's Legacy: Electromagnetic Healing Devices." In 1898, Nikola Tesla presented his findings of therapeutic uses for his newly invented high frequency Tesla coil oscillator to the eighth annual meeting of the American Electro-Therapeutic Association. Thirty years later, in 1932, Dr. Gustave Kolisher announced to the American Congress of Physical Therapy that "Tesla's high-frequency electrical currents are bringing about highly beneficial results in dealing with cancer, surpassing anything that could be accomplished with ordinary surgery." With the historical suppression by the AMA and FDA, most doctors today are unaware of the scientific wealth of techniques for healing with electrotherapy. Recent studies have continued to demonstrate incontrovertible evidence for the benefits of electromagnetic healing devices, for a wide variety of illnesses, with a surprising lack of harmful side effects. The discovery that electrons are antioxidants, for example, will change the way we fight free radicals in the future. An overview of the rich history of early devices, thanks to archives of the www.ElectrotherapyMuseum.com, and some of the recent scientific findings, based on the science of bioelectromagnetics, will be presented.

Registration and program information is online at www.wholepersonhealing.com or available by calling Meredith Weber at Penn State University, 814-865-2510. A proceedings of the symposium is also planned to be printed. Sponsors include American Biotech Labs, Chopra Foundation, Digital Cognisense, and EarthPulse Technologies.

2) ET Visitors: Scientists See High Likelihood

Space.com, January 14, 2005 http://space.com/searchforlife/et_betterodds_050114.html

A team of American scientists note that recent astrophysical discoveries suggest that we should find ourselves in the midst of one or more extraterrestrial civilizations. Moreover, they argue it is a mistake to reject all UFO reports since some evidence for the theoretically-predicted extraterrestrial visitors might just be found there. Extrasolar planetary detection is on the verge of becoming mundane. "We are in the curious situation today that our best modern physics and astrophysics theories predict that we should be experiencing extraterrestrial visitation, yet any possible evidence of such lurking in the UFO phenomenon is scoffed at within our scientific community," contends astrophysicist Bernard Haisch.

However the media is slowing coming around as ABC News recently aired a two-hour special on "UFOs, Seeing is Believing" for the first time and has offered the program to the public as a video or DVD from www.ABCNews.com. Dr. Haisch is well-known for his Physical Review journal articles on zero-point energy and the zero-point field based on stochastic electrodynamics (SED). See for example, "Inertia as reaction of the vacuum to accelerated motion," Physics Letters A, 240 (1998) 115-126. His email is haisch@starspot.com -- Ed. note.

4) 'The Future of Energy' Presented to Shelton CT Chapter of the World Future Society

Pal Asija, WFS Shelton Chapter, March 21,2005, www.ourpal.com

On March 12, 2005, Dr. Thomas Valone, Founder and President of Integrity Research Institute, a Washington, DC Think Tank dedicated to future energy solutions addressed the local chapter (now in its 5th year) of the World Future Society which meets in Shelton, CT from Noon to 3 PM on 2nd Saturday of each month.

Dr. Valone mesmerized the audience with his masterful presentation on "Future Energy Technologies" and handled their questions with exceptional and exemplary skill and felicity. In spite of over a foot of snow, about 20 futurists, inventors, intellectuals and energy professionals attended. In over one hour of PowerPoint presentation with over 60 slides, Dr. Valone covered the following topics in considerable depth:

1. Tesla Technology and how IRI is trying to resurrect his inventions like wireless transmission and augmentation of power as it propagates through the ionosphere. The healing power of the Tesla coil and the use of Earth's ELF (Extremely Low Frequencies) for therapeutic purposes in such devices as an "Electric Chair" (no relationship to the electric chair used in electrocution of prisoners on death row).

2. Exciting new concepts in magnetic motors, generators and engines such as Perendev & Brady motors, patented homopolar system (US 6,822,361 B1) by Russian inventors Sergi Godin and Vladimir Roschin. He graciously thanked his patent attorney (Your's Truly) for assistance with the patent. Dr. Valone himself did some pioneering work in homopolar generators and has authored a book to prove it. In addition to the Homopolar Handbook, Dr. Valone is also the author of Patents and the Patent Process - An Introduction for Inventors and Bioelectromagnetic Healing - A Rationale for Its Use.

3. Advanced nuclear energy technologies including a nuclear betavoltaic battery as well as very innovative a nuclear waste remediation technology which solves two problems in one by substantially deactivating and neutralizing radioactive waste while at the same time extracting energy from it.

4. Zero Point Energy, Casimir force and Space propulsion and how this research relates to secret United States Government projects operating under "Black Budget" officially known as USAP - Unacknowledged Special Access Projects. Some jaws fell in disbelief when Dr. Valone asserted and exclaimed that ZPE in space due to quantum fluctuations is more than 10E24 (Ten raised to the power 24) joules per cubic meter and even as much as 10E58 (Ten raised to the power 58) joules per cubic meter.

Dr. Thomas Valone in response to audience questions discussed other potential energy related technologies such as how spray-on solar cells are five times more efficient than conventional silicon based solar cells.

He also answered questions about the mysterious triangular flying objects seen by many credible professionals. The triangular aircraft has been observed with capabilities and flight characteristics unknown to man such as high-speed right angle turns and hover below stall speed.

5) 10 Simple Ways to Save Energy
Jennifer Vogel, E - The Environmental Magazine, March 20, 2005, http://www.emagazine.com/view/?2313

Saving energy means saving pennies, but some energy-saving techniques such as adding insulation or installing new windows are costly for homeowners and unavailable to renters. Here are 10 inexpensive ways to save energy in your home or apartment without breaking the bank or launching major projects.

  1. Switch to compact fluorescents for your five most-used lights. Yes, compact fluorescents are initially more expensive ($2 to $20) than conventional incandescent bulbs, but some utilities subsidize them and the remaining extra cost is worth it. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a single compact fluorescent will shave $60 off your energy bill in its lifetime and keep a half ton of the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. The federal Energy Star program notes that if every household in the nation switched five bulbs, we could shut down 24 power plants. Compact fluorescent bulbs use at least two-thirds less energy and last six to 10 times longer than conventional bulbs—not a bad return on your small investment!
  2. Insulate your windows. If you don’t have double-pane windows and can’t afford to install them, consider putting up plastic. Window plastic comes in kits ($4 to $6 per window) that are available at most hardware stores, and can be installed easily. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the pocket of air created between the plastic and the window serves as insulation, reducing heat loss by 25 to 50 percent.
  3. Don sweaters and fuzzy slippers. Before turning up the thermostat, ask yourself if you might be just as comfortable putting on some layers. The DOE calculates that your energy bill will go up three percent for each degree you raise the thermostat. Remember that tightly knit clothing is warmer than loose-knit, and wool is warmer than cotton.
  4. Use hot water efficiently. Install low-flow showerheads and faucet aerators—you’ll use less water, so you’ll have to heat less water. The DOE notes that a low-flow showerhead reduces the amount of water you must heat by 20 gallons, without reducing the quality of your shower. A $10 to $20 showerhead will pay for itself within three or four months. Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible and use the washer only with a full load. Keep your water heater set between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Watch your appliance use. Everyday appliances siphon huge amounts of energy off the grid, but those with Energy Star ratings use 10 to 50 percent less energy than standard models. When cooking, the NRDC advises consumers to "resist the urge to open the oven door to peek—each opening can reduce the oven temperature 25 degrees." Efficiency Vermont suggests keeping refrigerators at 36 to 38 degrees, and freezers at zero to five degrees. Unplug televisions when not in use, as they will continue to draw power even when switched off. Computers should be set to "hibernate" when abandoned temporarily.
  6. Use blinds and curtains wisely. In the winter, open window coverings during the day to let in solar radiation and shut them at night to keep the heat in. Emulate the pioneers by only exposing south and west-facing windows. In the summer, apply this principle in reverse. Keep windows shaded during the day to keep the heat out.
  7. Pay attention to your thermostat. The NRDC recommends setting the thermostat to 68 degrees in the winter, and dropping it down to 55 degrees when you are asleep or are away from the house for more than a couple hours.
  8. Stop drafts in windows and under doors. The Utah Department of Natural Resources suggests you can reduce your energy bill by 10 percent by ferreting out and sealing up air leaks. The DOE advises consumers to "pay special attention around windows and where siding or bricks and wood trim meet." Caulking, sealant, and weather stripping will do the trick and are available at most hardware stores. Cute little draft blockers can be had at most craft fairs.
  9. Close doors and vents to unused rooms. Many of us live in houses with more space than we need, yet we still spend the money to heat empty rooms. The DOE calculates that, "by closing the vents to just one spare bedroom in a five-room house, you can instantly cut your heating bills by as much as 20 percent."
  10. Use an humidifier. According to the DOE, "It’s not the heat; it’s the humidity." Moisture from a humidifier will increase the "heat index," making 68 degrees feel like 76. Maintain a relative humidity between 30 to 50 percent to keep condensation off the windows.

Sent: Mar 28, 2005 11:01 AM

Vantage Point Investment Advisory, March 28, 2005, Baltimore, MD

Nuclear Solutions (NSOL:OTCBB): This Transformational Technologies
(purchase price: 17 cents) and Special Situations (purchase prices: 87 cents
and 91 cents) portfolio holding closed Friday at $1.01. It recently realized an
important milestone when it signed its first-ever license for its technology for
the detection of shielded nuclear weapons

Radiation emissions from weapons-grade plutonium and uranium are low and
easy to shield from detection. Consequently, delivery of such a device remains
a serious threat.

NSOL's new patent-pending technology is intended to develop a portable,
low-cost detection system that cannot be fooled by shielding.

Rights were sold to I.P. Technology Holdings Inc. for $9.7 million. The
license fee is payable in equal quarterly installments of $242,500 over the next
10 years. Additionally, Nuclear Solutions will receive an 8% royalty on gross
product sales. A $100,000 signing fee, creditable towards the first payment,
was received, and the balance of the first payment is due on or before June 30,

The license is not generic, but pertains only to U.S. municipal police and fire
departments. Federal agencies are excluded. There are 55,000 police and fire
districts in the United States.

Patrick Herda, CEO, commented, "The licensing fees that we expect to
receive from this agreement will enable us to accelerate the development of
this technology and bring it to market faster."

Because this was the first such license and the technology is still under
development, the price was heavily discounted. Nevertheless, this represents
an exciting and important success for NSOL. It is the first significant sale of
this company's revolutionary technologies. It will not be the last.

Action to take: Nuclear Solutions (NSOL:OTCBB) remains a strong hold.

7) Barton Announces Full Committee Markup On Energy Bill

Alliance for Energy and Economic Growth, Post Office Box 1200, Washington, DC 20013-1200 www.yourenergyfuture.org

WASHINGTON - House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton today announced that he will hold a full committee markup beginning Tuesday, April 5 on the Energy Policy Act of 2005.

"An open process is the best process," said Barton, R-Texas. "I hope we can produce a bipartisan bill because this is the Congress where we are going to enact comprehensive energy legislation."

U.S. light crude closed today at $55.70 a barrel.

"Oil prices are at record highs and every day we grow more dependent on foreign sources of oil," Barton said. "The Energy Policy Act of 2005 will put Americans to work developing our resources and expanding production for the good of the nation. From conventional and unconventional sources together, we have abundant resources that we can develop in an environmentally friendly way."

Highlights of the legislation are:

In the House and its committees, a total of 179 hours of floor debate and markup debate have been devoted to energy policy since 2001. There were 80 hearings, 12 markup sessions, and 279 amendments considered. That does not include 72 hours of House-Senate conference committee meetings. A comprehensive energy bill has previously passed the House four separate times.

On March 16, 2005, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved a renewable fuels bill that would continue increasing the amount of ethanol and other biofuels used in gasoline. The legislation (S 606) would create guaranteed markets for corn and other crops by requiring refiners to use 6 billion gallons of renewable fuels by 2012. (That would be an increase from 3.8 billion gallons projected in 2006.) The bill also includes a provision to end within four years the use of the petrochemical fuel additive called methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), which some states already have banned over concerns about groundwater contamination. The legislation recommends providing financial assistance to help MTBE producers shift to other products and would let the government spend funds from the Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund on MTBE cleanup. Although the committee approved the bill by voice vote, four senators asked to be recorded in opposition: Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.; Frank R. Lautenberg, D-N.J.; John W. Warner, R-Va.; and James M. Jeffords, I-Vt.

8) U.S. presses China on cleaner energy


Apr 6, 2005

Associated Press www.ap.com



BEIJING -- A U.S. energy official was in Beijing on Wednesday seeking Chinese investment to build the first zero-emissions coal-fired power plant.

The U.S. government research project, called FutureGen, would turn coal into gas before burning it and then trap pollutants so they aren't released into the atmosphere.

"I invite China to be among the first to join FutureGen," said Mark Maddox, deputy assistant secretary of energy, in a text of remarks he made to Chinese officials.

A FutureGen plant would cost $950 million to build, with the U.S. inviting foreign partners to buy in for $80 million.

Pollution control hasn't been enough of a priority for China, though, as it tries to produce as much energy as possible as cheaply as it can, said a senior U.S. official who briefed reporters on condition of anonymity.

"There seems to be some begrudging understanding that they need to do it cleaner, but they are trying to do it on a very tight budget," the official said.

The price tag for building the most advanced, cleanest plant is up to three times as much as for an old-fashioned coal-burning plant.

But, the U.S. is working to convince China that better technology, while expensive, can raise efficiency, reduce pollutants and improve safety, the official said.

Apart from raising concerns about environmental damage, China's surging energy needs also place the country into competition with the United States for coal and oil supplies, he said.

"They are putting such a premium on security of energy supplies that they are probably driving prices unnecessarily," the official said.

China's crude oil imports soared 35 percent last year to 840 million barrels, helping push world prices to their current highs.

"Their policy seems to be at this point: energy at any cost," he said.
