 October 2013




It has been an exciting month for us since I flew out to Boulder CO (see Story #1) to present at the Global Breakthrough Energy Movement conference for the first time.  The organizers were dedicated to facilitating the promotion of "free energy" with as much scientific information as possible. Even Professor Garret Moddel from the University of Colorado gratiously presented his views on "quantum engineering device technology" and Russ Gries appeared in person to promote his replication of a single-piston Papp engineexploding repeatedly with a noble gas mixture. I particularly singled out Gries to ask him to create a four-cylinder model of the Papp engine with a camshaft. He is interested in accomplishing this task since his single piston and Bob Rohner's single piston both demonstrate a proof of principle (see my COFE6 presentation for more info). Other energy device-oriented presentations besides mine included Mark LeClair from NanoSpire, Inc. who has a robust cavitation fusion experiment, Mark Dansie, Russ Anderson, Moray King, Ruby Carat, Foster Gamble and late addition "Robert". Many of the presentations are preserved on the Global BEM website as LiveStream videos and also on an independent website as noted in the first story.


Our second Story (#2) is a human interest story centered on the Power Africa Initiative to respond to the need for solar-powered electricity in a continent swimming in abundant power from the sun

We look forward to the networking and volunteerism that will make our solution to providing night lights to as many of the 20 million who do not have electrical lighting in their homes in Africa. The picture from space proves how much Energy Poverty exists in Africa. We believe that an inexpensive LED array that is solar-recharged will help to fill that gap with a one-time investment that will payback for years. Donations to the IRI Power Africa Homes Light Project are invited.


On a similar note, why not go big with a large solar array in space? Story #3 shows how the Japanese are moving ahead of the rest of the world to be the first to start using Space Solar Power. Why bother you say? Besides the lack of CO2 emissions, the big advantage is that in space, the sun is TEN TIMES more powerful! That's 1 kW per square meter instead of a puny 100W per meter squared on the earth. The Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) has a nice 7-minute summary of the proposed Space Solar Power System that is quite convincing and educational. Maybe the US will join in someday soon instead of fracking fossil fuel near underground water.


Story #4 tells of a new company called ClearSign that uses electric fields to improve combustion. This reminds me of a Plasmatron developed at MIT that was supposed to go on the carburetor with applied high voltage electric fields. Perhaps the theory involves a similar ionization or plasma in addition to flame-shaping but the important result is an improved combustion efficiency.


Last but not least, Story #5 is one that I have wanted to include for a while but now that an hour-long movie has been released, it is a great opportunity to share this simple invention for getting back to nature with "earthing" or grounding. Walk barefoot on the ground when you can but now we can be grounded each night while we sleep with a simple conductive sheet or make-it-yourself screen under the sheet that is grounded. The benefits are two-fold: (1) lowering the overall positive voltage of the body including all of the electropollution that the body attracts, and (2) attracting negative electrons from the ground into the body which IRI has proven to be the active ingredient of antioxidants. I recommend the 16-minute YouTube introduction which demonstrates the efficacy of the how-to make your own earthing sheet. It is guaranteed to provide more restful and peaceful sleep experience through a revival of ancient, natural electrotherapy.

2) IRI Launches the Power Africa Light Project

Press Release, 10/16/13, for more info contact 301-220-0440


In response to the Administration's Power Africa Initiative and the published critical article entitled, "Where's the sun gone in Obama's $7 billion Power Africa project?", IRI has begun our own "Power Africa Homes Light Project". After pictures of the 20 million homes without lighting has been circulated, IRI realizes that a simple solar-rechargeable LED array is a simple solution to the problem. The IRI Power Africa Homes Light Project includes:



*          Supply  LED - Solar-NiCd modules for lighting homes

*          Recruit African distribution nonprofit organization

*          Aim for 10,000 homes per month supply

*          Use donated money to accomplish project

*          Goal: Jumpstart evening and nightime studying and reading


The public is invited to help IRI accomplish this worthy goal in any way possible, through donations or networking to those who will help make it a reality.





3) Japan Aims to Beam Solar Energy down from Orbit

By Paul Sutherland | SEN News, 28 September 2013



(Sen) - The Japanese space agency JAXA is developing a revolutionary concept to put "power stations" in orbit to capture sunlight and beam it to Earth.


The country has been looking for new power sources following the devastating earthquake and tsunami in March, 2011, that destroyed much of the north-east of the country and caused a meltdown at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant.


Many of the country's nuclear reactors were closed due to stricter safety regulations after the emergency. Now JAXA is aiming to set up a Space Solar Power System (SSPS) by 2030. An array of mirrors would sit in geostationary orbit to collect solar energy and then transmits it to a power plant on the ground via microwaves or laser beams. There it could be used to generate electricity and hydrogen.


Proponents of the technology say that it would provide continuous energy without any worry that resources would be depleted. It would be unaffected by the time of day or weather and would provide environmentally friendly, clean energy.


Interestingly, the idea is not a new one. An American, Dr Peter Glaser, designed a similar concept in 1968 to deploy large solar panels in space to generate power and convert it into microwaves to transmit to the ground. Following studies by NASA and the US Department of Energy, the project was deemed too costly and it was never developed.


Similar studies have been carried out in Europe. The idea is also reminiscent of a Russian plan in the 1990s to use mirrors to beam sunlight to the ground at night. This had astronomers and environmentalists up in arms because of the light pollution it would have caused. The Japanese concept is different because there would be no stray light emitted from the beam.


Yasuyuki Fukumuro is leading research and planning for SSPS. He says: "We have not yet decided whether to use microwaves or laser beams with SSPS, or whether we will somehow combine them. We are currently conducting ground-based experiments to find the most efficient way to transmit energy.

"Regardless of which transmission technology we use, when we collect sunlight from outside the Earth's atmosphere, we can get a continuous supply of it, with almost no influence from the weather, the seasons, or time of day, allowing very efficient collection of solar energy.


"And since the energy source is the Sun, it's an endlessly renewable resource - it won't run out as long as the Sun is there. Also, because the power is generated in space and carbon dioxide is emitted only at the receiving site, emissions within the Earth's atmosphere can be greatly reduced, which makes this technology very friendly to the environment.'


Fukumuro suggests the technology will also be useful in disaster situations. In the event of a blackout, a collecting dish could be unfolded and deployed to receive microwaves from space for conversion into electrical energy.


JAXA is working with a collective of machining and engineering companies called Kyoto Shisaku Net to develop the array of reflectors that would be lifted into orbit by reusable shuttle-like spacecraft and then assemble themselves.


JAXA Engineer and Senior Researcher Katsuto Kisara says: "The biggest problem we've encountered with the project is developing solar mirrors that are incredibly lightweight. I think that there is certainly a way to do it, but it has presented quite the challenge."

4) Electric Fields Could Make Power Plants Cleaner 

By Kevin Bullis on October 23, 2013,  Technology Review



A Seattle company called ClearSign Combustion has developed a trick that it says could nearly eliminate key pollutants from power plants and refineries, and make such installations much more efficient. The technique involves electric fields to control the combustion of fuel by manipulating the shape and brightness of flames. 


The technology could offer a cheaper way to reduce pollution in poor countries. And because ClearSign's approach to reducing pollution also reduces the amount of fuel a power plant consumes, it can pay for itself, the company says. The need for better pollution controls is clear now in China, where hazardous pollution has been shutting down schools and roads this week.


The company claims that its technology could reduce fuel consumption by as much as 30 percent. Some outside experts say that in practice the likely improvement would be far less, possibly only a few percent, although even that would still result in large savings.


Much of the pollution from a power plant is the result of problems with combustion. If parts of a flame get too hot, it can lead to the formation of nitrogen oxides, which contribute to smog. Similarly, incomplete burning, which can result from the poor mixing of fuel and air, can form soot (see "Cheaper, Cleaner Combustion").


ClearSign uses high-voltage electric fields to manipulate the electrically charged molecules in a combustion flame. This can improve the way air and fuel mix together, and can spread out a flame to prevent hot spots that cause pollution.


The idea of using electricity to shape flames has been around for decades. But conventional approaches typically involve plasma, and the plasma needs large amounts of energy. ClearSign says its technology only uses one-tenth of 1 percent of the energy in the fuel that a power plant consumes. It works using electrodes within the flame. The electrode produces high voltages that influence the movement of ions; by varying the voltage, it's possible to control the way the flame forms. The technology is particularly effective at reducing smog-forming NOx emissions, carbon monoxide, and soot.


"There's been interest in electric fields for some time, but nothing with as strong an effect as they've demonstrated," says Michael Frenklach, a professor of mechanical engineering at the University of California, Berkeley.


In addition to reducing pollution, the technology can improve the efficiency of a power plant or a refinery in several ways. Improved mixing of fuel and air means less fuel is wasted by incomplete combustion; the technology can also improve heat transfer from the flame to the water in a boiler, so less fuel is needed to make steam, which is used to drive turbines in a power plant. But the biggest potential for fuel savings could be in reducing or eliminating the need for conventional pollution controls, which can consume significant amounts of energy, and can be expensive.

5) "Grounded" Film Promotes Earthing Electrotherapy Benefits 

Emma Bragdon, PhD, Director,


Editor's Note: IRI suggests starting with a short intro to getting antioxidant electrons into the body from a grounded bedsheet. Watch "How to Make Your Own Earthing Sheet" (16 minute) and perhaps author of Earthing, "Clint Ober Demonstrates Earthing"(30 minute) with Dr. Mercola  - TV 


A Hollywood grade film called "Grounded" has just been released.  It's got lovely footage of nature ( a National Geographic filmmaker) and an important message for physical and psychological wellness.  You can view the hour-long film for free on YouTube:  







Earthrunners - publisher of "How to Make Your Own Earthing Sheet" video

Living indoors disconnects us from our natural electric state & hinders our bodies ability to tell time. Earthing sheets simulate the effect of sleeping in direct contact with the Earth and reconnect us with the Schumann resonance. For more information on sleeping grounded check out our blog post:
