Banks, elitists and bureaucrats keep capital out of the hands of true innovation
New World Order dialectics continue to confuse everyone by denying truth and emphasizing irrelevant details which demonizes anything new while hiding the criminal actions of the real scam artists
The web master for CommuteFaster was on a national talk show 12/12/2005 and was cut off from one of the network feeds when he started talking about Stan Meyer (see "News that should have been" column 3) Apparently some think censorship will protect their oil stocks.
Who's Left in America to Manufacture Anything? This report lists the major American companies who have sold control to foreign firms over the last 10 years. Startling to see. 12/26/2005
Minimum Daily Standard for SOOT
EPA generates new standard for safe levels of soot to breath daily. We all blame the automobile and industry for the horrible air we breath but the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy states at their web site that "Heating systems in the United States spew over a billion tons of CO2 into the atmosphere each year and about 12% of the nation’s sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides." 12/21/2005
Where Do Banks Want to Put Capital?
Even unemployed deadbeats continue to get "You've been approved" credit card solicitations in the mail. So when a major bank says they have $1 Billion available for "Environmentally Beneficial Business," what does a start up business get confronted with? They must comply with standards set by the World Bank and International Finance Corporation in "The Equator Principles", including requiring an environment assessment report, an environmental management report, and must comply with all regulations set forth in exhibit 3. And they have to make enough profit to make the loan payments too. 12/19/2005
Current Hydrogen Storage Techniques Have Potential Hazards. Safety training was recently held in Torrance California to train first responders on proper action. 12/8/2005
CommuteFaster Ed note: Design and application have enormous consequences. Small quantities of H2 are no more dangerous than a small firecracker. Reference this article on what really went wrong with the Hindenburg. Also reference this better picture.

Hybrid Cars Present a Potential Shock Hazard in Rescue Situations. OSEN/CBS 12/5/2005
Back Scratching Hypocrisy Dominates the World's Most Obvious Environmental Groups. Other stories on this page prove the life exterminating "New World Order" is funded by oil, yet why do Sierra Club, GreenPeace, and Friends of Earth, have such close ties to the UN, the World Bank, and IMF? Try asking them to help you finance your alternative energy project and see what they say. Take a close look at this relatively new one:
"The Zayed Prize", founded by Arab Oil Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Then take a look at who the prize money has been given to. Next prize winners to be announced Dec. 20, 2005. I don't think the real innovators are holding their breath. 12/1/2005
"Our aim as a business is to make money and by giving our customers new choices to make a difference." John Browne, chief executive of oil giant BP commenting on why they are suddenly expanding into solar, wind and gas/coal derivative produced hydrogen. 12/1/2005
The known problem of the atomic size of hydrogen attacking and leaking through any opening it can find is addressed by Tai Robinson. Like many potentially dangerous substances, it only requires proper handling. 11/19/2005
As long as oil is profitable, Exxon will keep the money to themselves, $8 billion this quarter. 10/27/2005
The Disclosure Project directed by Steven Greer in association with Open Source Energy Network, OSEN, just released 7 outstanding video interviews of noted scientists discussing suppressed energy technologies. Report. 10/24/2005
CommuteFaster Ed note:
We feel that since government is not directly the problem, sinister people belonging to covert organizations with ugly motives BEHIND GOVERNMENT are the problem behind ALL government's obvious troubles. So we think Mr. Greer would find more answers by investigating the US SHADDOW government instead. 10/29/2005
Hybrids are available now to stretch your gasoline mile, and more are promised by the big auto makers on a scattered timeline, but are they worth the extra price in the long run? Hydrogen on Demand technology will make them obsolete because it will work on ANY engine, but the financial industry has thus far been reluctant to invest in a technology that public schools still teach is impossible. Listen to (right click, save to computer then play) Jim McCanney explain how NASA and our education system get their fundng and you will understand why little has changed in 100 years. 9/26/2005
Bilderbergers?....we should have known!
I just found this quote taken from a report of the May 2005 meeting :
"Expect a severe downturn in the world's economy over the next two years as Bilderbergers try to safeguard the remaining oil supply by taking money out of people's hands. In a recession or, at worst, a depression, the population will be forced to dramatically cut down their spending habits, thus ensuring a longer supply of oil to the world's rich as they try to figure out what to do."
The full report can be seen here. It is quite long, so scroll down to the "Energy" and "USA Criminals" headings for relevant information.
FYI: The Bilderberg Group is a compilation of world elitists consisting of CEO's of the largest corporations in the world and numerous political leaders. It has no direct authority itself, just to influence the few who attend. 9/14/2005
While the world SCREAMS out for usable alternatives to oil, the over-funded academic community debates whether H20 is really H20 or H1.50. 9/13/2005

We don't have an energy problem, we have a political problem. Look what the sun has been doing the last few days from one of the last few NASA satellites that still work and haven't been fried. 9/8/2005
You'd think these guys would learn how to use the internet. As we've said before, just go to Yahoo and search for "Best Energy Sources" then start reading. 8/29/2005

Who Really Controls Oil and World Energy?
Not at all.When the curtain is lifted, you may realize your real enemy is someone you thought you could trust your paycheck with. Historian-researcher Henry Makow explains some startling and frightening historical truth about oil and energy in this report. 7/3/2005
Energy Cartels Have No Tolerance for Competition or Exposure of Their Criminal Acts. Academia is so reliant on funding from such criminals, they won't speak out against them, and as we learn in other links here, they will even stoop to rejecting truly new innovation just to keep the archaic technologies in power. 6/7/2005
And then the government coverup crew gets involved. 6/9/2005
Biodiesel Not Quite the Panacea Promoters Claim, What Do You Do When A Bear Smells Your Exhaust? A now removed story at NewsDay.com told of a bear that broke into a vehicle and trashed all the upholstery trying to find the source of the "french fry" smell emitted by the biodiesel engine. 5/29/2005

Venture Capital Blind to the Obvious: here's a hint guys, go to Yahoo and enter "best energy sources" None of this stuff assembles itself. Garage startups need capital too. It's absolutely tragic that plenty of money was available to develop this crap while clean energy can't ask for a dime without being labeled a crack pot. 3/24/2005

2004 Came and Went!
Where are all the promised Technologies? Before picking on anyone, consider this question: has Bill Gates delivered a bug free operating system yet, after how many years?
As we start 2005, here is where the leading new technologies are at.
2 companies claimed they would have something for the public in 2004 using hydrogen directly generated from water via a technology similar to that accomplished by several inventors granted patents in the 80's and 90's. Those 2 companies are
Genesis Scientific in Boise Idaho and Emerging Technologies in St. Louis, Missouri.
Many garage experimenters also tried to get something to market by year end. Plans for one approach were even sold on E-bay. None made it to the finish line by 12/31/2004 with anything complete or safe. The few who got the E-bay plan design to generate gases, reported serious explosion potential, with no easy solution to make it safe to operate.
Check the links to each company listed above for their own reason for missing their dated goals. Genesis explains management and technical problems. Emerging Tech says their web site is under major reconstruction, implying something major in 30 days, Feb. 1,2005?
All the majors, and a few small conversion companies already know how to run an engine safely and reliably on hydrogen gas. But all use rather unsafe compressed, or liquid H2 gas. And the thermal, potentially hazardous leakage and hydrogen embrittlement issues to accomplish this does necessitate the budget of a big auto company even for doing that. But none of the big guys knows (or admits to knowing) how to convert water efficiently on demand into sufficient quantities of hydrogen gas. As soon as that technology goes public, one can expect the major auto companies to have working models on the road within a year or 2, barring any political obstacles.
***4 companies and again, a few small inventors, announced working models of ultra-efficient electric generation equipment utilizing permanent magnets in all or part of their motor design.
Minato is selling his motor only in Japan.
RhinoHydro and JAG/GMC appear to still be seeking capital to complete their products for mass production.
None are available for purchase, or even close inspection in the US. I suspect a DOE owned by oil, coal, gas and nuclear lobbyists may have something to do with this. Please go to each company's web site for any explanation of their technology.
It should be noted that legal expenses to obtain US patents are currently running over $25,000 each and taking up to 5 years to process. Expecting someone with a revolutionary idea to show it to the public unprotected, or obtain these patents easily is more unrealistic than the legendary perpetual motion machine. It's both extremely cruel, and ignorant for skeptics to cry "scam" when inventors merely ask friends or public investors for financial assistance to cover these costs. Anyone brave and persistent enough to deliver a working product in the midst of vicious competitive opposition deserves both patent protection and a financial reward for their efforts. R&D takes massive amounts of time and money on top of ingenuity. Nothing happens as fast as expected, so these commodities always multiply beyond anyone's' initial guestimate.

Another way to get killed using hydrocarbon fueled engines. A perfectly healthy 18 year old girl in Los Angeles died recently doing what she thought was safe, harmless fun. This report in the AZ Republic explains the problem. A problem H2 powered engines DON'T have. 5/1/2004
Never mind sugars, fats and other junk, you eat too much oil according to this report.
In the United States, 400 gallons of oil equivalents are expended annually to feed each American 4/9/2004
Even the web master of Commutefaster.com once thought nuclear could solve the world's electric needs. But dare ANY pro-nuke advocate to review this report and keep the same opinion.
Ghost Town - a motorcycle tour of Chernobyl 18 years later. Certainly Chernobyl was caused by belligerent Russian arrogance and stupidity, but sadly, they don't have a monopoly on that. 4/5/2004

Plastic products simply do not biodegrade. They don't just disappear. Look where much has accumulated.
And a boater reports on trying to navigate through the mess 4/5/2004
Fuel Cells are a bad joke being promoted by the same shysters who brought you oil. There are much safer ways to handle hydrogen than to carry a compressed gas bomb around with you. As stated in the Peak Oil report, gasoline will have to pass $4/gallon to justify present methods of making the raw hydrogen the fuel cells use. 4/20/2004
When another inventor approached Sierra Club* and Greenpeace* to endorse his clean burning engine modification device, they refused. *They only seek political power, not solutions. They asked HIM for money.
The "Dick Cheney authored" Bush energy plan dumped billions of dollars back into the bank accounts of the same companies that showed record profits by extorting it from the customer base which has to use their product just to show up at work.
Liberal politicians continue to hide behind green rhetoric while taking bribes from the same groups sponsoring the nuke and drill guys on the other side of the aisle.
Green smoke from California stops TRUE innovation in its tracks by dumping massive regulation on startups and making all alternative fuel vehicles pay TWICE THE COST to operate on their freeways as gross polluters. Oh, but they do get to ride in the carpool lane free like good little socialists.
Everyone talked about the weather, but when the wrong people DID something about it, we found out it was NOT a good thing
Fuel Cells are the buzzword and seem to get most of the grant and research money, but the only government money going to the root need, a cheap way to MAKE hydrogen is thus far going back to oil companies. Anybody smell a rat? 12/27/2005
Fidel Castro Addresses the University of Havana. In a very long, rather verbose and rambling speech (11/17/2005) makes a few amuzing remarks about being skeptical of hydrogen as a fuel and a greater need to escape the planet altogether. Is a Cuban space program in the works? 12/27/2005
A Million $ for one car and one fuel station? And only goes 80 miles on a fill up? Typical government budget. Certainly not mine. At least the original power source is wind. And if that's political rhetoric hot air wind, it probably could become profitable in a short time. 12/26/2005
US Department of Agriculture Obtains Renewable Energy Financing for 2006
New funding was announced December 14, 2005 for financing renewable energy projects in farming and rural business applications. Both government backed loans and grants are included in the program and offer much needed capital to the alternative energy industry.
Department of Energy cuts funding to The National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden Colorado. 12/21/2005
Penn State Gets Money from the US Air Force, Army and Navy to Align Hydrogen Atoms in a Row. About as useful as counting the number of angels on the head of a pin, but given where the research money came from, it must lead to a new way to kill someone. 12/19/2005

In California: Nature and Politicians compete to make the worst air to breath. Doesn't anybody in Sacramento read this page? The Salton Sea in southeastern California belches out 23 times more hydrogen sulfide gas than all the industry in California, and the state continues to use an enormous amount of electricity from coal fired power plants, regardless of the state's tree-hugging hyper liberal rhetoric. Residents of Bakersfield are now restricted on burning wood in their fireplaces, the air is so bad. I wonder if the frequent chemtrail spraying seen overhead by the editor of CommuteFaster might have something to do with it? 12/5/2005
State of Florida Reveals Database of Hydrogen Research Projects in progress at its Universities. Track projects and contact the people working on it. Accountability inside academia? This is rare. 12/1/2005
After 30+ Years of Government Funded Research, Engineer Chris White at Sandia Labs has this to say: "Instead of gasoline, the engine burns an invisible compressed gas, hydrogen, with virtually zero air emissions. The engine gets better efficiency than a gasoline engine," White said, "and a hydrogen-burning car is likely to be cheaper and longer lasting than a hydrogen fuel-cell car."
"You can do it a lot cheaper than a fuel cell. You don't have to have this renaissance of revolutionary technologies," he said. 11/19/2005

11/24/2005 news update related to story below.Disclosure?
Consider the Source,Rumors are spreading, and I guess this just continues the thread, that something major is about to be announced from Washington DC within the next 3 months, partly tied to Steven Greer's "Disclosure Project", and partly tied to the US Patent Office acknowledging a form of anti-gravity for the first time. (see story next column right) Unfortunately, I have to quote Franklin Roosevelt who said "nothing happens politically that is not planned." Many are expecting to hear what John Lear proposed on Art Bell's late night talk show back on 11/2/2003.
Consider the Results
Cutting edge technology as we discuss and report on here has an unfortunate history of occasionally merging extremely close to theology or exhibiting reckless attempts to get something to market too quickly. It is easy to point a finger of guilt at the medical industry for abuses like RU486 affecting human life, or Aspartame which is known to CAUSE obesity and brain tumors, or the chemical industry for allowing known toxic substances to be used handling foods. But alternative energy is not without its embarrassments too. Thomas Edison tried to market a device to talk to the dead. The view we hold here at CommuteFaster is simply to continue true scientific research by systematic analysis and NEVER accept any "free gifts" from suspicious sources, be it government, Ouija boards, Greek Trojans bearing gifts, 9 foot tall guys with 6 fingers who drive a sports car with no wheels, or even promises to make $30k a week from your home computer (open attachment). Cheating on tests never bring good results in the long run. The absolute most classic "Twilight Zone" line of "To Serve Man: The Cookbook" is as true today as then, even when parodied by "Married With Children" or "The Simpsons." Man is perfectly capable of monumental accomplishments (and disasters) WITHOUT any outside help. God said so himself in Genesis 11:6.
I recommend this article as a review of the many options now laying before us, as well as a review of the many weird things we have already seen. 11/19/2005

Listen to the behind the grin details told by Tai Robinson as video interviewed by Sterling Alan of FreeEnergyNews.com
You'd be grining too if you got the GM stockholders to pick up the tab to buy the "green vote" in California. The 27 minute video also reveals what happens when you hook up a "0" emission vehicle to California's state smog inspection equipment. (scroll to the 14:00 minute point) This flashback article will refresh your memory of the much touted campaign promises in 2004. 10/14/2005
The US is not the only government to issue more red tape than answers in the quest to abandon oil for hydrogen. From Scandinavia through Russia, governments see any new technology as a new source for taxes FIRST, and an answer to their own transportation problems second. 10/13/2005
Where will the next "Silicon Valley" of Green Energy be? This group in Sacramento California wants it there. 10/13/2005
Technology to control the direction of existing hurricanes was given to the US Air Force from Russia in 1997 for the INTENT of stopping dangerous hurricanes from ever entering US land. It was tested then and proven to work. James M. McCanney, M.S. explained details in his 9/29/2005 radio show (scroll to last 10 minutes of show archive) and lamented it has now "fallen into the wrong hands" and is being "used against its own citizens" by "some people who are very much out of control."
Professor McCanney was recently proven correct in his position that comets are NOT dirty snowballs, they are highly charged physical masses. Project Deep Impact showed us they look just like a big rock up close, there is nothing "snowy" about them. They fly near the sun and don't melt. NASA has been wrong again, yet continues to take billions from taxpayers. The relevance of this is simply that our entire solar system, from planets to weather, is an interactive electrical system, the heart of McCanney's theories and studies. 9/30/2005

Either way, who profits now?
Where are your assets invested? With the fast buck opportunists or with genuine solutions to energy issues?
How long will your "annuities" continue to pay with insurance companies paying out for disasters like this?
How long will the US Government be able to pay the interest on its bonds when it has to fund FEMA to this extent?
Income taxes from an unemployed population don't cover squat. Wake up America! Either invest in genuine new energy like we report on here, or prepare to be washed away as slaves to the oil despots grabbing every ounce of your blood.
Greenspan says expensive energy is no big deal, we've weathered it before,
but look out for your house! He should know, Fed Reserve banks have been foreclosing on widows since the depression of the 30's... the only thing they know how to do. Of course the fact that many Americans are now spending a third of their paycheck just to get to work and back couldn't have anything to do with home foreclosures could it??? 8/29/2005
Department of Agriculture announces government backed loans and a few grants for renewable energy programs in rural areas.
Full document. But as typical of government giveaways, you now have less than 2 weeks to get your complex application approved, Aug. 30,2005 deadline. I wonder if Haliburton got an advance copy? Somebody's going to get $22 million, any bets who? Original press release made before the final July 18 details were published. This comparison chart shows what is eligible for either a grant or a loan. With a little creativity, it looks like some money could reach the good guys for a change. Sorry news didn't reach this site sooner. 8/15/2005
8/29/2005 Follow up... A company we know of with a working technology tried this. The bank couldn't even find out what department to pass the project to in 2 weeks. But the somewhat good news is the government bureaucrat we spoke with says the same program is likely to get funded again for next fiscal year, taking applications again as soon as October 2005. So start getting your paperwork ready now, and don't say we didn't warn you.

Global Warming can Feed More People with a longer growing season and fewer crop-killing frosts. What little temperature change there is, is caused entirely by the sun, not industry. Yet politically motivated power grabbers work against ANY technology to push humanity back into the stone age.

not supply and demand.
Although Michael Rupert is a well respected researcher in other matters, he never should have believed anything the Council on Foreign Relations told him. His lengthy report, recompiled by Matthew Savinar reveals some legitimate issues, yet naively believes CFR propaganda to justify war for easy gain. The editor of Commutefaster.com has brought some alternative energy knowledge to the attention of Matthew Savinar, but he seems more concerned about selling his book and fear than he is to actually solve the problem.
The problem is now accurately defined as: those who have the oil would rather let the world die than sell it at a reasonable profit. The crisis DOES NOT HAVE TO HAPPEN. But if both investors and individuals don't take action immediately, criminally controlled governments WILL be implementing these loss of liberty and life policies just to appease the oil suppliers and addicted users.
But we remind readers that oil supply is only half the problem. Pollution from its use is the other. We still whole heartedly support the technologies reported on here. 8/31/2004

Dennis Lee on National Road Tour Again. Demonstrating several devices already available, he will also be allowing show attendees to get first access to a unique electric generator which will reduce or eliminate the users' consumption from the grid. He is seeking a committed audience to attend the eventual grand unveiling of this device, as yet not shown to the public. Dennis has experienced outrageous attacks which have prevented him from releasing any of the major alternative energy technologies he has access to for years. His tour details can be found at Declaration of Energy Independence. No one should believe any of the many bogus attack web sites until you have read his side of the story in his book "The Alternative" which contains copies of legal documentation proving all his claims. Commutefaster has learned of threats against his presentation already so we encourage readers to show support by massive attendance and to DEMAND documentation from any critic you may run into at the program. He has been harassed by bribed politicians and corrupt law officers numerous times before and it is not likely to stop until he succeeds in getting his genuine technologies into the public's hands. 7/21/2004

Success? The bloated US Department of Energy thinks these are success stories. They obviously haven't found Commutefaster.com yet. 4/4/2004
Who will be left standing?
China, Japan and US to play musical chairs with dwindling oil supply.
Disclose, Disclose, Disclose
A plea for full disclosure is underway against the US Government by this organization, demanding to explain why technologies which can replace oil have been criminally suppressed for over 60 years, both by the government itself and large political donors. Also see 8/10/2004 story above Re: Dr. Steven Greer.
Government Sabotage by Abuse of Power
By abusing the Patriot Act, 133 inventors last year were confronted with this intimidating response from our government when they tried to patent something to keep American business strong. You can't even patent a good idea anymore!
The Top innovation for 2005 has to be the Ovation water distillation process, an exponential jump in performance from all distillation processes used to date
Second of importance is the US Patent Office acknowledging an anti-gravity process and issuing a patent number #6,960,975
Teasers came from several companies for improved ways to generate H2 but NONE offered specific performance numbers for us to post a side by side comparison of performance efficiency.
Several auto companies showed more interest in powering the internal combustion engine with H2, but ALL still assume you have to store it in unsafe quantities rather than make it on demand
Many inventors of several technologies made presumptive announcements prior to having a good business plan to get their great idea to market quickly. Every time this happens, the skeptics have a heyday ridiculing the inventor for the wrong reasons. Hopefully they will show up again.
Given Clean Burning Hydrogen as a Fuel Source:
Which is more efficient:
Fuel Cells or the Internal Combustion Engine?
FuelCellWorks addresses the question and shows comparison numbers as of today's technology. The race is getting close and the answer is not as easy as one might think. 12/21/2005
If you are new to Fuel Cell terminology and acronyms, this primer will help.
Some headlines are almost embarrassing to write, the process is so simple, we all feel like idiots for not knowing this and applying it, but...

DISTILLED WATER ANYWHERE FOR THE PRICE OF YOUR CITY'S TAP WATER
WARNING UN POWER MONGERS TRYING TO GRASP CONTROL OF THE WORLD'S FRESH WATER SUPPLY...
YOU'RE BUSTED !!!!!
Water Distillation Technology takes a giant leap forward with a new technique developed by Ovation Products. Their system can now produce distilled water as cheaply as your city's tap water. Preliminary unit brochure PDF CommuteFaster Ed note: All known Hydrogen On Demand systems need clean, preferably distilled water to work efficiently. This system could push H.O.D. ahead tremendously and bring it much closer to reality. 20+ gallons per hour from 54 watts of power is incredible! Additional report at OSEN. 12/1/2005

Auto makers continue to provide innovative styling and some clever engineering, but still use compressed or liquid hydrogen gas.
Hydrogen on demand has been feasible since Stanley Meyer and others back in the 90's, yet that technology's existence is thus far being ignored by all the auto makers. We have to ask why? Recent Tokyo Auto show announcements by Mazda, Toyota, and Mercedes look spiffy, but really don't offer what the consumers need, namely a vehicle to run totally on water. 10/13/2005

To date only Genesis Scientific and Emerging Tec have claimed to be able to do this efficiently enough for a mobile application. Others will no doubt soon follow, but ALL need more capitalization. None are public stocks, it just costs too much to go public. The investment community continues to ignore them all. 9/2/2005

RhinoHydro Gives Up. The website is gone. Google cache shows this was posted on 4/22/2005:
"Due to financial constraints, Rhino Hydro has ceased its work in developing the product lines. To this point, all the funds used were solely those of the Rhino Hydro group. This was a very difficult decision to make due to all the interest worldwide. Our plan is to continue the project at a later date, when funds permit. We will maintain our database of interested parties and inform those periodically of our status. Our mission is to produce a top quality unit for everyone's benefit.
Rhino Hydro is a unit for creating your own hydro, independent of present day sources. A unit that requires no fuel, wind, or water source and creates no bi-products. Just clean power.
This site is designed to make people aware, that the product exists, what the product is, and some idea of functioning. Benefits to the individual, or company, as well as when the product will be available.
Check Rhino Hydro out and drop us a line to let us know what you think or ask questions.
We look forward to present the world with an alternative energy source that will revolutionize the way we think about energy."

The British non-profit firm Earth2012 is seeking donations to deliver a working model by 2005. (Only 2 months away?) Their original view was to make the technology open source for anyone to manufacture or make one one's self without patent or royalty concerns. But this updated report from PES shows a slight change of heart when reality set in. Would this give anyone the incentive to mass produce it? Donations there will only yield a warm fuzzy feeling. Investments make more sense if the resulting technology can be controled enough to benefit those who worked to develop it. 8/4/2004

Total Wind Powered
even with no breeze.
Using wind power to make the hydrogen which powers the fuel cell, this novel sailboat named HaveBlue succeeds in storing wind power while it blows, then using the H2 to power the electric engine when in the harbor or when the wind stops. Even though our web site does not endorse most fuel cell applications, this one eliminates use of diesel fuel and subsequent exhaust problems associated with the backup motor on most sailboats, making it the first boat to be safe for "Teak Surfing.". 5/1/2004

Investment - Capitalization
An improved approach to using ONLY WATER as a fuel will soon be released
The deck has been stacked against innovative development through conventional financing by banking and Wall street for nearly 100 years. Read the history about how Nikola Tesla advanced electric energy until he could give it free to everyone. That's when J.P. Morgan ceased all financing and sabotaged every subsequent energy invention of Tesla's, causing him to die in poverty, even though Tesla had perfected the technology used in all the world's current power grids. Conventional bankers will not touch alternative energy. Look at ANY credit application. Your application is judged by their opinion of whether you can pay them back. No historical track record? No deal.
More recently, (1998) an inventor in the Philippines made another design allowing vehicles to run entirely on water. His Government was informed by the International Monetary Fund that because they had borrowed money from the IMF, they would be forbidden to EVER manufacture anything that would compete with any IMF holding, which of course are oil stocks. Banks cater to their largest depositors arguing they are most likely to be able to repay the loan. Venture capitalists are reluctant to invest in any technology that challenges the massive economic counter-marketing power possessed by the oil industry. A visit to the recent Hydrogen Energy conference in Los Angeles saw the oil companies flashing thousands of dollars in Public Relations. All promoting uses of hydrogen that REQUIRED oil or natural gas to make it! Nothing was promoting what you see discussed on this page. Now enter government, EPA. It was initially started to handle abuses by the oil industry. But it got so used to imposing enormous fines against these massively capitalized corporations, they continue to extract exorbitant fees from ANY NEW technology. See the Hummer H2/H2 story in column 3. 5/10/2004
We do not consider current solar, wind or geothermal technology to be efficient enough to report on here. The cost per kilowatt is still higher than burning oil or natural gas, even at today's high oil prices.
