Future Energy eNews











Story #1 may become a new tradition for our FE eNews if we keep having such productive months in the future. Three events worth sharing all happened in August: the long-awaited publication of my edited volume called “The Future Of Energy: Challenges, Perspectives, and Solutions” with lots of great chapters from my favorite colleagues who pitched in to consider developments in renewable energy, novel energy discoveries, environmental climate futures, possible technological advances, temporal distortion, and gravitational electromagnetism. The full Table of Contents and a more detailed summary are all online at the publisher’s website . We also have finalized the cover artwork seen here for the Double DVD Set of COFE12 which will start shipping in another week or so. For our FE eNews readers, here is a secret I can share with you: If you become an IRI Member, you will receive a FREE copy of the Double COFE12 DVD Set for a holiday gift . Otherwise, it is available separately at a super discounted price for 16 hours of conference experience. Either way, you come out a winner! Lastly, my new climate article, “Global Warming, Carbon Dioxide, and Sea Level Predictions Based on Paleoclimatology” has become Chapter 3 of the new Volume 4 of Current Perspectives to Environment and Climate Change series, where I explain the quantitative relationship discovered by famed NASA climatologist, Dr. James Hansen.


Story #2 offers another milestone in the military acceptance of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) and its importance to national security and transparency. With the Department of Defense now forming a UAP Task Force, we can look forward to more honest reporting on UAPs perhaps, which hopefully will lead to the “nature and origins of UAPs” which is promised. Can’t wait!


Story #3 is a surprising development in space propulsion that looks suspiciously like cold fusion, which it is. Load up something like metal with deuterium (heavy hydrogen) nuclei and hit it with electrons…even an electric current will do to get excess heat and fusion byproducts. Only in this case, the smart people at NASA decided to give their electrons a kick with an electron accelerator that Pons and Fleischmann didn’t have in their laboratory. However, their denial of cold fusion is quite charming and political of course. Hand waving toward nonexistent photons and warmth noted during handling afterwards doesn’t magically make it “hot fusion” as they claim but whatever works is what counts since the government is funding it.


Story #4 shows that Branson will not be left behind in the race for space. Only this time, it is the space right above our rooftops that he is going for with the next supersonic transport with Virgin Galactic’s Chief Space Officer in charge of the project, also in cooperation with NASA.


Story #5 offers us another spin on the wind turbine saga with a six blade for home use that is quiet (under 30 dB) and does NOT create the tremendous back force which normal wind turbines will do. Check out the nice video too . This style, reminiscent of the Darrius Rotor design, is a vertical axis model which also has a smaller footprint as a result and can be assembled by anyone who normally succeeds with IKEA furniture assembly, according to the manufacturer, who is based in Iceland. Another plus is the wind tolerance…up to 130 mph, which is hurricane strength winds. The company is called IceWind and the residential model is The Freya.


Onward and Upward!

1) New Publications by IRI


Two exciting new Books: The Future of Energy; Current Perspectives; plus COFE12 Double DVD with all the talks NOW AVAILABLE


The Future of Energy Book

The Future Of Energy: Challenges, Perspectives, and Solutions” with lots of great chapters from my favorite colleagues who pitched in to consider developments in renewable energy, novel energy discoveries, environmental climate futures, possible technological advances, temporal distortion, and gravitational electromagnetism. The full Table of Contents and a more detailed summary are all online at the publisher’s website 




We are happy to now offer our COFE12 Conference Double DVD Set. The event was livestreamed but many people who registered at may not have seen the entire conference for many reasons. This DVD SET of the entire COFE12 Online Conference has 16 hours of presentations in MP4 file format and is ONLY $25 plus $5 shipping. It inclues: Paul Murad, Col. Eric Felt, Dean Radin, Thorsten Ludwig, Bill Alek, Mike Gamble, Ray Fleming, Ed Storms, Steve Hampton and Tom Valone

Global Warming, Carbon Dioxide, & Sea Level Predictions Based on Paleoclimatology DOI: 10.9734/bpi/cpecc/v4

Climate articles and publications continue to erroneously suggest a one and a half (1.5°C) to two degrees (2°C) Celsius as an achievable global limit to climate change [1]. A comprehensive review has found that observationally informed projections of climate science underlying climate change offer a different outlook of five to six-degree (5-6°C) increase as “most accurate” with regard to present trends, climate history and models, yielding the most likely outcome for 2100 [2]. A significant causative triad from 1950 to the present has been identified: The tripling (3x) of world population; the quadrupling (4x) of carbon emissions; and the quintupling (5x) of energy consumption. This paper presents a quantitative, linear global temperature link to carbon dioxide levels, which has a short emporal feedback loop.


2) The Pentagon Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP)Task Force is now Active


On Aug. 4, 2020, Deputy Secretary of Defense David L. Norquist approved the establishment of an Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) Task Force (UAPTF). The Department of the Navy, under the cognizance of the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, will lead the UAPTF.  

The Department of Defense established the UAPTF to improve its understanding of, and gain insight into, the nature and origins of UAPs. The mission of the task force is to detect, analyze and catalog UAPs that could potentially pose a threat to U.S. national security.


3) Spacecraft of the Future Can be Powered by Lattice Confinement Fusion


Researchers at NASA’s Glenn Research Center have now demonstrated a method of inducing nuclear fusion without building a massive stellarator or tokamak. In fact, all they needed was a bit of metal, some hydrogen, and an electron accelerator.


The team believes that their method, called lattice confinement fusion, could be a potential new power source for deep space missions. They have published their results in two papers in Physical Review C.


4) Virgin Galactic Unveils Jet Design that Travels Three times Faster than Sound


There are other influential heavyweights advising Virgin Galactic, too. In May, Virgin Galactic signed a deal with NASA to share expertise and resources.

Virgin Galactic also announced this supersonic jet concept recently passed a mission concept review, which confirmed that the concept "can meet the high-level requirements and objectives of the mission."

"We are excited to complete the Mission Concept Review and unveil this initial design concept of a high speed aircraft, which we envision as blending safe and reliable commercial travel with an unrivaled customer experience," said George Whitesides, Virgin Galactic's chief space officer.



5) New 6 Blade Vertical Wind Turbine Can Power you Off Grid Safely for 30 years


Wind now accounts for 7.2% of power generated in the United States, and IceWind says that will be around 20% in less than a decade, by 2030. But most of that is the huge horizontal turbines you see in commercial wind farm applications with blades the length of a 747. All green energy is good — although there are concerns with bird loss — but it’s hardly something a homeowner can install. The new Freya model from IceWind, which starts at $3,200, is an entirely different design. “What we have designed over at IceWind is actually a vertical axis wind turbine,” Samuel Gerbus, one of IceWind’s mechanical engineers, told me recently on the TechFirst podcast. “The large difference is those big turbines, when wind comes from different directions you either need to use a gearbox to change those blades to face that wind direction, or stop them and change it. Vertical axis wind turbines are omni-directional. We can take wind from any direction.”
