Section IV
The Suppression of Fuel Savers and Alternate Energy Resources


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 energy.

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 poisons.

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 environment.

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 energy.

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 doing.

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 acceptance.


Nikola Tesla - A Brief Introduction
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 unknown.

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 field.

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 conjectural.

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 entire industry.

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.
