Got Crowd? BE the Force!

Got Crowd? BE the Force!

Unethical, energy policies are. Repressed, possibilities are.

Ultracapacitors Made of Carbon Nanotubes and Graphene are High-Functioning, yet Cheap

Using two one-atom-thick materials, scientists have created a high-functioning yet cheap ultracapacitor. The creation of the ultracapacitor was made possible after mixing graphene flakes with single-walled carbon nanotubes. This groundbreaking device is actually an energy storage device well capable of creating surges by rapidly releasing the power.

The ultracapacitors can play a significant role in boosting devices like electric vehicles, handled electronics, audio systems and more. What all is needed to be done for this is to combine the power of the energy-density of batteries and the high power-density of capacitors, an American Institute of Physics news release reported.

Here is the Koch brothers’ latest move. These are evil people. Homeowners and businesses that wish to generate their own cheap, renewable energy now have a force of conservative political might to contend with, and the Koch brothers are leading the charge. The L.A. Times, to its credit, found the positive spin to put on this: Little old solar ‘has now grown big enough to have enemies.”

A new way of capturing and storing energy from sunlight. Photoswitches are not ready for prime time yet, but the principle has been demonstrated.

Scientists Discover How to Generate Solar Power in the Dark

Meet ‘photoswitches,’ a breakthrough set of materials that act as their own batteries, absorbing energy and releasing it on demand.

The next big thing in solar energy could be microscopic.

Scientists at MIT and Harvard University have devised a way to store solar energy in molecules that can then be tapped to heat homes, water or used for cooking.

The best part: The molecules can store the heat forever and be endlessly re-used while emitting absolutely no greenhouse gases.  Scientists remain a way’s off in building this perpetual heat machine but they have succeeded in the laboratory at demonstrating the viability of the phenomenon called photoswitching.

“Some molecules, known as photoswitches, can assume either of two different shapes, as if they had a hinge in the middle,” MIT researchers said in statement about the paper published in the journal Nature Chemistry. “Exposing them to sunlight causes them to absorb energy and jump from one configuration to the other, which is then stable for long periods of time.”

SchwartzReport: Salvation (Transition from Carbon) Gets Cheap [Robert Steele and Sepp Hasslberger Told Guardian Same Thing, They Chose Not to Print It]

Stephan A. Schwartz

Stephan A. Schwartz

Here is the truth no one wants to admit, because it threatens the entire carbon energy infrastructure and its profits: Making the conversion out of the carbon era will not be that costly, and will actually create millions of jobs, and generate new fortunes, just as the conversion from sail to steam, or horse and buggy to internal combustion. But, like the Wizard of Oz, the carbon interests fill the air wi! th disinformation and nonsense to obfuscate this truth.

BREAKING: Hold on Keystone – Fracking Next?

2.5 million outraged public comments and one honest state (Nebraska) — the Administration is, for the very first time, feeling the weight of collective intelligence both individual and state. Is fracking next?

US Puts off Decision on Keystone XL Pipeline

The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely.

In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline’s path through the state.

State Department Indefinitely Delays Keystone XL Pipeline Decision

“In addition, during this time we will review and appropriately consider the unprecedented number of new public comments, approximately 2.5 million, received during the public comment period that closed on March 7, 2014,” the State Department said.

Berto Jongman: Pyramids as Energy Source? Comment by Sepp Hasslberger

Berto Jongman

Berto Jongman

Suppressed Scientific Evidence Proves Free Energy Source Dating Back 25,000 Years

A monumental discovery with four years of comprehensive geo-archaeological research has failed to reach mainstream audiences for some reason. The most active pyramid site in the world dating the pyramid complex back 25,000 years has also released scientific evidence supporting the theory that the pyramids were used as an energy source. The recent study reveals energy beams transmitting electromagnetic signals unexplainable by our science in what is now documented as the largest Pyramid complex in the world. Overwhelming evidence, supported by scientific research from all over the archaeological community proves that our recorded history is wrong concerning ancient cultures, which in turn changes religion, science and academics.

Dr. Osmanagich has investigated pyramids all over the world, however his recent discovery of the Bosnian pyramids in Visoko, are nothing more than remarkable. What may be more remarkable is how he has been attacked in the media, by scientists and researchers for his incredible find.

SEPP HASSLBERGER: Very interesting. The most remarkable thing about these pyramids isn’t that they were or are a “free energy source”. They aren’t, at least not in the way we understand and use energy today. The pyramids apparently are amplifiers and emitters of electromagnetic energy, which seems to rise in beam form from the top. We do not know what purpose they were built for, perhaps they were a component of an advanced system of communication and transportation between this world and others.

SchwartzReport: California’s Net Zero Energy Building To Reshape US Construction Industry

Once again California is leading the nation. This time in green building technologies and standards. I think this is very good news.

California’s Net Zero Energy Building To Reshape US Construction Industry
CARL STERNER – CleanTechnica

California’s recent revisions to Title 24 put in place ambitious performance goals: all residential buildings must be Zero Net Energy (ZNE) by 2020, and all commercial buildings must follow suit by 2030. The code also applies to retrofit projects that pass certain thresholds. (A ZNE building produces as much energy on-site as it consumes on an annual basis.) These changes promise to reshape the construction industry in significant ways – and not just in California. Here’s how.

Baby With the Bathwater: The Wrongful Rejection of Cold Fusion — Part I

2014 is upon us, and progress in the field of Cold Fusion (aka LENR) marches steadily on. Brillouin Energy Corporation (BEC), currently operating out of California and working in collaboration with Stanford Research Institute (SRI), recently signed a multi-million dollar deal with an undisclosed South Korean company who intend to manufacture their LENR boiler technologies and outfit obsolete power plants with them.

It has recently been confirmed through an official press release that inventor Andrea Rossi’s American distribution partner is none other than North Carolina-based Cherokee Investment Partnership (CIP). CIP has spawned a business-subsidiary, Industrial Heat LLC (IHC), apparently as a vehicle to further develop and market Rossi’s E-Cat (Energy Catalyzer) technology. IHC is also engaged in a prolonged diagnostic of Rossi’s E-Cat, the results of which will be released in an official report later this year. Even more interesting is that CIP-CEO, Thomas Darden, has been in close contact with Chinese government officials who have announced their intentions to establish a “Nickel Reactor New Energy Project”.

If this pans out, and it’s not impossible by any means, we have a new, abundant energy source being harnessed…

Blacklight announces sustained production of enormous electrical power from water

BlackLight Power, Inc. today announces that it achieved sustained electricity production from a primary new energy source by using photovoltaic technology to transform brilliant plasma, with power comprising millions of watts of light, directly into electricity.

By applying a very high current through its water-based solid fuel in a process called Solid Fuel-Catalyst-Induced-Hydrino-Transition (SF-CIHT) technology, water ignites into brilliant plasma, a bright flash of extraordinary optical power that has a power density of over a million times that of any prior controllable reaction.

Remarkably, the light emitted from the plasma is nearly a perfect spectral equivalent of the Sun, but at 50,000 times the intensity.

BlackLight Power has now successfully converted the brilliant plasma directly into electricity using photovoltaic cells (solar cells) which have been increasingly perfected to convert the Sun spectrum into electricity for more than five decades costing an estimated $1 trillion.
