Aerospace Insider Embraces New Energy Science

BY JEANE MANNING

Nick Cook’s search for answers to outside-the-box questions propelled him through topics other aerospace industry journalists shun—from antigravity to zero-point energy. His comfort with such concepts didn’t develop overnight, however; it took a decade of questioning before he was ready to write the page-turner book Hunt for Zero Point. That book chronicles his ten-year investigation into efforts to crack the Holy Grail of propulsion: antigravity technology. A sequel which he is about ready to write will focus much more on breakthrough energy technology. Recently in…

Italian Inventors Enter ‘Cold Fusion’ Arena

JEANE MANNING

An “Energy Catalyzer” is the new item on the energy frontier at the time of this writing. Italian engineer Andrea A. Rossi and Professor Sergio Focardi of the University of Bologna announced a technology for a reaction that produces excess heat—at low cost and in quantities that would make it commercially useful. It involves a catalytic reaction be­tween nickel, hydrogen, and some secret elements, but they avoid calling it “cold fusion.” At this time it looks like the Italians do have a viable technology that…

New-Energy Scientists Get New Respect

By Jeane Manning

When given $300 for an airline ticket anywhere, what kind of woman chooses to attend a conference of the American Chemical Society? And she’s not even a chemist, much less a scientist of any stripe. Yes, the ACS annual meeting was in sunny San Francisco this spring and part of her getaway trip included an afternoon with a New Energy group at her host’s house, meeting with an inventor who drove up from Los Angeles, and a dinner party when physicist Thor­sten Ludwig of Germany…

Is the Energy a Cause or an Effect?

When this column appears it’ll be time to complete planning for the summer’s travels. How about taking in a couple of new-science meetings? If you want an excuse to fly to Munich, Germany, on July 7 the Perendev company is launching Mike Brady’s elec­tromagnetic motor. Check the web site www.perendev. com to see if it’s still happening. Closer to home, July 14 – 17 is the U.S. Psychotronics Association (USPA) meeting, in Laughlin, Nevada. About 15 years ago while reporting for Explore New Dimensions magazine,…

The Secrets of Magnetism and Energy Conversion

In ancient times a Greek shepherd named Magnes happened to be using a staff made of iron to herd his flock toward new pastures. One day an unseen force pulled the iron rod toward a large outcropping of rock. According to the legend, the rock gripped his staff does generic cialis work so strongly that it resisted his efforts to retrieve it, and that’s how a certain rock mineral got the name Magnes Stone and eventually magnetite. Material containing magnetite was known as lodestone. Whether…

The Many Dimensions of Breakthrough Thinking

The Global Breakthrough Energy Movement conference in Hilversum, Holland, in November was a breakthrough in itself. The three-day event broadened and deepened communication between advocates of new, clean-energy inventions, on the one hand, and thought-leaders who are passionate about other ways to improve our world. This month’s column will listen in on some of that conversation, which often detoured to extraordinary ideas. Musician, author, and explorer Michael Tellinger of South Africa has seen evidence that indicates the ancients had advanced knowledge of the laws of…

Jump-Starting a Movement for New Energy

BY JEANE MANNING

There’s a place on the New Energy frontier for us ordinary citizens—whether it be presenting educational DVDs to our neighbors or supporting a worthy effort such as Dr. Steven Greer’s latest high-profile project www.theorionproject.org. (The Orion Project aims to raise $3 million to lease a well-equipped research facility and bring a core group of brilliant inventors together with technical staff for a year or more. The goal is “to develop the first consumer-friendly, non-polluting, sustainable free energy generator.”) Today I’ll tell you about a little-known…

Water-as-Fuel Inventors Get Their Own Museum

BY JEANE MANNING

The paths that lead to obsession with novel energy technologies vary, but their first steps are often similar. Most in­ventors I’ve met, for instance, recall that as a child they were fascinated by some aspect of science or the workings of nature. They tore radios apart, built gadgets and, if they were lucky enough to have heard about him, were enthralled with the story of genius inventor Nikola Tesla. James Robey, on the other hand, began his search for a new energy source in a…

Future Looks Bright for Alternative Energy Tech

BY JEANE MANNING

We’ll be at a least a month into 2008 when you read this, but it’s being written on Christmas Eve 2007 so we’ll be glancing back at the old year before looking forward to the new. For the global community of new-energy researchers seeking a quantum leap into a new paradigm, the year 2007 was a mixed experience. On the one hand there were disappointments and deaths of new-science pioneers (including the tireless David Hamel, the subtle-energies wizard Slim Spurling and the distinguished scientist Arie…

Beyond LENR (aka ‘Cold Fusion’) to Useful Energy

By Jeane Manning

We’re in a time of big changes. The CEO of a new energy company developing a revolutionary product says, “If we had started this ten years ago, we’d be dead by now.” Even a change for the better is not always easy. We resist letting go of an outmoded belief or worldview despite the fact that it’s not solving our problems. It’s all the more difficult to ditch a worldview if you’ve defended it for many years and expect reward for your elite knowledge. Are…
