I have created a short book describing my work to change the Curie Point of a ferromagnetic material and so create an electrical generator with a high efficiency. It’s now available on Amazon and other booksellers. I’ve kept the price as low as possible so others can examine the idea. This concept, although in its infancy, could revolutionize electric power generation.
From the back cover:
Energy is the foundation of Human civilization and critical for our survival as a species. Right now, there are seven billion people on the earth, with one billion added every ten years. From fire, through beasts of burden, all the way to the industrial revolution’s exploitation of coal and oil, mankind’s progress has been tied to energy. Oil and coal, while currently plentiful, create both environmental problems and the unavoidable truth that, with our expanding population, we will soon face critical shortages.
Although we have a few nuclear sources, most energy originates from the sun. Oil and coal are stored sunlight from a buy-gone era. Wind, hydro and biomass are more renewable but expensive and not able to meet realistic demands. For the long-term survival of civilization, we need to find better ways of tapping into the almost limitless power the sun sends us every day. This book describes a device designed to directly capture sunlight, and do it with an efficiency capable of rivaling or exceeding our current methods.
In Phoenix, Arizona, the other day, more than 40 flights were cancelled due to the extreme heat. This is the new reality. Climate change is real and is caused by human activity. If something isn’t done to get our act together, we will see more such record temperatures, more droughts, more floods and more weather disturbances. This isn’t only a problem for our children. Climate change is here now.
I can’t help but think that the money lost in just those cancelled flights, would have covered the cost of duplicating my research into the Ferromagnetic Generator and provided proof that this way of collecting solar power could free us from the grip of the coal and oil barons. Curie point manipulation can create a pollution-free and climate-neutral electro-hydrogen economy. But when you’re a back-yard inventor with no fancy credentials, it hard to get taken seriously.
So; the Keystone pipeline just received its first batch of crude oil. Major win for the oil barons and Republican Elite. Yay, fuel for your car might be one or two cents cheaper. No one cares about the danger that pipeline poses by crossing over America’s main aquifer of freshwater. Which, if it ever gets contaminated, could make a quarter or more of the United States’ prime Agricultural land unfarmable.
Let’s ignore the oil industry stooges and face the fact that oil costs more than its per-barrel price. Even present day shipping disasters (seagoing tankers, pressurized pipelines and trucks), refining hazards, carcinogens released into the environment, and even the soul-destroying karma earned by those who compromise their integrity for some company’s bottom line. Some research claims the true ‘2017’ cost of a single gallon of gasoline would be well over fifteen dollars if all the costs, now underwritten by taxpayers, were included. And this estimate is thought to be much lower than for coal, who’s long-term environmental and health expenses are too widespread to accurately calculate.
But, ignoring corporate greed induced short-sightedness, the larger issue is our dependence on carbon-based fuel. Alright for us, it’s the future generations who’ll need to deal with the really serious effects of global warming.
The Keystone pipeline stands as a symbol of backward, dogmatic, thinking. All that money, effort, destroyed land and human heritage wasted for a something that will someday be viewed a pointless exercise in corporate welfare, and a capitulation to the moneyed elite.
It doesn’t have to be this way. Every honest scientist admits the only way forward for human progress is harnessing the power of the sun. In the last few years, the cost of renewable energy has dropped to where it’s a major contender. In total, many might be even more cost-effective than fossil fuel if that privileged industry didn’t receive so many tax and other taxpayer handouts.
My own research on the ferromagnetic generator shows it to be a promising method of harnessing the power of the sun with an efficiency sufficient to free us from oil. But without absolute proof of concept, my idea is dismissed. I’ll write more about this strange short-sighted dismissal in other posts. But to keep it in perspective; it’ll cost taxpayers less to fund a research institution to confirm my work, than it costs them to keep the President’s wife in her luxury digs for a single year.
The $5.4 billion pipeline to transport heavy crude heat-extracted from the Canadian oil sands is a monumental waste of money. And considering that if all the carbon found in those sands is burned, it’s game over. OK, the planet will survive, but after the Earth’s ice caps melt, we won’t. Not an easy idea to get one’s head around especially with all those lobbyists and meda-pundits assuring you to trust them as they’ve never lied to you before.
The proposed pipeline route is an Environmental nightmare. Besides the global warming issue, it runs across the Ogallaia aquifer. That’s a vast underground lake laid down by ice melting at the end of the last ice-age. This lake is not significantly replenished with fresh water—and it won’t be until the end of the next ice age some thousands of years in the future. Even a small pipeline leak, through accident or incompetence like we saw in the BP Oil platform blowout, could render this resource unusable for drinking or agriculture. Yet against the ridiculous expense, and human species threatening danger, small-mined CEOs and politicians consider the risk acceptable.
The saddest part of this whole debacle is that we don’t need to spend $5.4 billion to keep our energy needs satiated. The proposed pipeline is the buggy-whip of modern energy-gathering technology. With only a quarter of that money diverted to developing alternative energy methodologies such as the ferromagnetic generator, we could easily obtain the same amount of energy from non-polluting solar, and without any of the environmental dangers. In time, solar energy, and in its transportable form, hydrogen, could provided many thousands of new jobs, end global warming, and make the energy we use in our daily lives far cheaper.
