The Suppression of Fuel Savers and Alternate
A chemical war has been declared on our planet.
As a species, we are at the end of our grace
period, and we can no longer afford to spew out toxins from our
industrial plants, and filth from our cars and trucks. If we are to
somehow survive and carry on into the next century, to preserve a
healthy planet for the future generations, we must conserve our
resources. Better still, we must rely on alternate, clean forms of
You need to look only as far as your driveway to find evidence of
our abuse of existing energy resources. Conventional carburetion and
fuel injection introduce a fine mist of gasoline droplets into the
combustion chamber of your car. Some of this mist is vaporized, and
that is what propels the pistons down their cylinders, driving the
car along. But droplets merely burn—a waste of rapidly depleting
fuel resources—and hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions are the
result. True vaporization is the answer to ridding the air of these
Charles Pogue knew that the most explosive part of gasoline is its
vapor, and so invented a system that would induct the vapor from the
air space above the fuel in a gasoline tank. He was thus able to get
more than 200 miles per gallon on two-ton cars with eight-cylinder
engines. Pogue held three basic patents for vaporizing carburetors
he developed for General Motors in the 1930s. With such an
outstanding outcome, one would think that these devices would be
standard on today's automobiles.
Unfortunately for us, Pogue's facilities were
destroyed in the late 1930s and he was wounded by gunfire in
incidents that persuaded him to forego further development of his
invention. However, the fundamental concept lives on in various
forms. Honda cars, for example, now have sophisticated vaporizing
technology enabling high mileage performance.
In 1998 Mitsubishi announced the introduction of
similar "lean burn" technology that involved vaporizing the fuel.
Although none of these modern adaptations go as far as Pogue and
some of his contemporaries, Future Perfect Ltd. of Auckland, New
Zealand, is currently marketing an aftermarket vapor device that
reputedly cuts hydrocarbon pollution by 60 percent.
So it is possible for us to use our fuel resources responsibly and
economically. But this does not alter the reality that, despite our
best efforts at conservation, our energy supplies are finite. Thus
we must seek out abundant resources. And, truth be known, we have
the technology to harness these resources for a cleaner, safer
However, since the early years of this century, power and petroleum
companies have been resolute in their denial that alternate energy
resources exist. When faced with irrefutable proof, they have been
even more resolute in their efforts to suppress devices that would
allow us to harness this energy. The power of these corporations is
such that, today, neither free energy nor hydrogen have a place in a
world reliant on fossil fuels.
Science, far from being value-free or disinterested, as it likes to
portray itself publicly, has always been an advocate for the
dominant system in which it has an important stake. If the current
fossil-fuel economy were to be disbanded, funds for pet research
projects would rapidly disappear. Because alternate energy
researchers are a perceived threat to the organizations which
provide research funds, unconventional energy devices do not and
cannot work, or are doomed as quackery—"in scientific opinion.''
Take, for example, the free energy idea, which contends that the
earth is floating on (or in) a sea of energy. Space is not the
vacuum that some would have our students believe in science classes.
It is a veritable sea of energy. Indeed the very term "space" is
almost a dead giveaway for the message that establishment science
wishes to create. In reality, it is not as though matter has been
created ex nihilo, it is that matter is created out of this sea of
Nikola Tesla and Henry Moray were inventors who
actually designed and built machinery that tapped into the free
energy of space and harnessed it to drive electric motors, operate
radios, and light electric light bulbs. Lester Hendershot
invented a generator powered by the earth's magnetic field that
achieved similar results. Like so many other inventors trying to
make alternate energy a viable option, these men lacked "scientific"
training, and worked independently in their small workshops.
Scientists working for the establishment endeavored to discredit
them, rationalizing along the lines that, as the inventors were not
learned in academic science, they could not know what they were
But suppression has not been limited only to free energy inventions.
It extends to cover research into hydrogen as an energy resource as
well. Francisco Pacheco successfully powered a car and a boat with
the hydro-gen energy of seawater. Martin Fleischmann and Stanley
Pons shocked the scientific community when they announced that they
had fused two hydrogen nuclei in a jar of heavy water. So it seems
that water can be-come the major fuel for the world.
That's because when water's two constituent gases, hydrogen and
oxygen, are combined with a spark they explode with tremendous
force, producing super-abundant quantities of energy that is totally
non-polluting. Then they recombine to form water. They can also be
made to burn with a controlled flame for welding torches; for
cooking; for steam generation; for power.
The media never shows you an exploding gasoline storage tank and
editorializes that gasoline is an extremely dangerous fuel. But with
hydro-gen the dominant association foisted on the people is the
Hindenberg "disaster." We are never told about the probable sabotage
of a dirigible that was built with German thoroughness for detail
and safety by people who were knowledgeable about the properties of
hydrogen; nor it is ever really stressed that thanks to the fact
that hydrogen is so incredibly light most of the explosion went up
instead of engulfing the gondola ... and most of the passengers
actually survived the blast.
We are at the most crucial time in recorded history in terms of not
only our survival but our fulfillment as an intelligent,
compassionate, and creative species. It is only now—when the need
for a global transformation in energy usage is dire—that this
technology is absolutely necessary.
If necessity is the mother of invention, perhaps we
can hope that it is also the mother of the invention's general
Nikola Tesla - A Brief
by Jonathan Eisen
Nikola Tesla was arguably the greatest inventive genius of the
twentieth century, perhaps the greatest at least as far back as
Leonardo da Vinci. What a shame and an indictment on our educational
institutions that his name enlists barely a mention here and there
in the hallways of learning.
When pressed, electrical engineers, who in fact owe their livelihood
to Tesla, will tell you that Tesla invented alternating current and
the "Tesla coil" which they play around with every so often when
they have to. But they will probably not be able to tell you
anything about his other 700 basic patents.
Or his ability to fetch electricity from the ambient atmosphere. Or
his conclusion that the earth itself is a capacitor, and his
experiments with transmitting electricity around the globe to
virtually anywhere. Or his invention of the radio (well before
Marconi), X-rays, the transistor and countless other inventions so
far ahead of the times that even today they are still virtually
Even so, his bladeless turbine does seem to be making something of a
comeback. And the Tesla Society is trying to interest the world in
reviving some of his other lost inventions. He was convinced that
"free energy" is a fact, rather than mere speculation, and over the
years he has become something of a magnate for people working in the
Tesla's legacy is well known to a small-but-growing group of
interested scientists and researchers. His astonishing story is
recounted still: How he tore up his contract with Westinghouse in
order for his alternating cur-rent electrification of America to
proceed; how he had the rug pulled out from under him by J. P.
Morgan when it looked as though his Colorado Springs experiments
showed that wireless electricity transmission was feasible; how his
Wardenclyffe tower on Long Island was destroyed when it seemed that
his new system was about to supplant his old AC system, making free
electricity available to everyone.
What a tragedy that a genius of such magnitude should die broke in
his room at The New Yorker Hotel. For sometime afterward the FBI was
quite interested in his papers, some of which dealt with new kinds
of torpedoes, "death rays," and other inventions too numerous to
mention here. As Chaney writes in her biography of Tesla:
Like Einstein he had been an outsider and, like Edison, a wide
ranging generalist. As he himself had said, he had the boldness of
ignorance. Where others stopped short, aware of what could not be
done, he continued. The survival of such mutants and polymaths as
Tesla tends to be discouraged by modern scientific guilds. Whether
either he or Edison could have flourished in today's milieu is
The example set by Tesla has always been particularly inspiring to
the lone runner. At the same time, however, his legacy to
establishment science is profound for his research, although
sometimes esoteric, was almost always sweeping in its potential to
transform society. His turbine failed in part because it would have
required fundamental changes by whole industries. Alternating
current triumphed only after it had over-come the resistance of an
We must consider ourselves fortunate to have benefited from Tesla's
alternating current technology, without which the world as we know
it would not exist. How else might our lives differ today if
formidable opposition had not halted his free energy research?
Clearly, humanity would no longer operate according
to a fossil fuel economy.
