As our government implodes, climate change becomes undeniable.

The stupidity of the electoral collage system has put our government under the control of the dregs of the oligarchy. We no longer have anyone looking out for our long-term interests. Only greed matters. Facebook posts, twitter exposures, even protest marches have no real effect. The moneyed elite knows, that come election time, their incessant advertisements—based on lies and libels and coupled with gerrymandering and voter suppression, will bring in enough votes to swamp those capable of seeing through their fabrications.

All of this plays out against the backdrop of civilization-destroying climate change. Already the disturbed weather patterns cost billions of dollars every year, and honest scientists assure us it will only get worse. Soon, storms, fires and sea-level rise will create destruction and mass migrations never yet seen in human history.

This strikes me personally because I’ve been unable to attract, or cajole, anyone with influence or technical expertise to examine, and confirm, my research on the Ferromagnetic Generator. I believed this device, capable of turning sunlight into electrical energy with an efficiency high enough to challenge oil and coal, would find some followers in those who seek a better future for their children.

I know I’m just a home-shop inventor with no credentials. But many times in the past, serious changes in science have come from those, like Marie Tharp, Alfred Wegner and the many others who were discounted by those not seen as part of the ‘club.’

We cannot count on this current government to act rationally. Any hope to get through this morass must come from the populace. I keep thinking how cheap electricity, and the electro-hydrogen economy it would create, could empower private citizens and weaken Big Oil’s hold, as well as alleviate the Global Warming debacle.



Another devastating Hurricane!

It felt ironic that, just as I finished rebuilding my website describing a new principle to exploit the energy from the sun and reduce our need for oil and coal, Hurricane Harvey devastated the city of Houston and the surrounding area. While it’s true I can’t offer absolute proof of concept, my work gives very powerful evidence this idea works. Perhaps a small effort, possibly costing less than a million dollars, could create a world free of our dependence on burning carbon, with all the social, political and climate change problems it creates. Compare that cost to the 40 billion, or far more, it will take to offset the cost of this one hurricane.
Climate change exacts a heavy price. Warmer weather heats the oceans, which causes excessive evaporation, putting moisture into the atmosphere, which creates these monster storms. Facing such an expensive future, doesn’t a million dollars sound like a cheap option if it will provide a way out of the coming debacle.
I can only feel sadness for those flooded out by Hurricane Harvey. No doubt they will see their life savings disappear. And to be honest, the heaviest burden will fall on low-and middle-income residents.
Certainly, the hurricane’s victims need all the help we can provide. I just wish I could get some response from those with the resources to examine my idea in detail. When you’re just a ‘home shop’ tinkerer, it’s hard to get anyone to pay attention. So, if you know anyone with influence, maybe you could share this with them.

First book about the Ferromagnetic Generator.

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.

Web sized front

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.


Making slow progress

I haven’t posted in some time as I’ve not made much progress on finishing the electronic system for the new prototype. Life, with all its complications, has interfered and between maintaining my house and property added to some health issues that involved a hospital stay, I haven’t spent much time in my shop. To be honest, as that the last prototype didn’t show even the smallest hint of working, it made it hard for me to maintain my enthusiasm.

However, it setting up the new system I’ve re-examined everything and made more careful measurements. There is a real possibility I didn’t have the phasing correct in my last attempt, and as it blew up after running for less than a minute, I never did get the chance to do anything beyond one quick look.

Phasing is critical, but it’s very hard to get right. Remember, I need to make sure the field coil’s expanding magnetic field is in phase with the increasing current flow in the core. And the only way I have of achieving this is with an oscilloscope looking at voltage changes at various points in the wiring. If I measure the voltage at wrong point or the wrong way, then it can look in phase but isn’t.

When I duplicated my previous wiring, but changed the way I measured things, I got this:


If these two signals were in phase, their peaks and valleys would appear lined up vertically. As you can see the top signal is following the bottom waveform by almost 90°.  Which means the magnetic field and the current weren’t working together.

I’m not sure this was happening in the prototype that blew up, but as I never got a chance to experiment, it remains a possibility. Getting the phasing right makes all the difference, so I’ll take my time before heating up the new prototype.
