One of the main reasons for wars right now in this world is energy related, natural resources, oil, natural gas and pipelines. There are two critical reasons why we have to solve the energy crisis, and both reasons lead to the absolute annihilation of the human race. There will be more pollution as we consume ever more energy, hurrying global warming and our extinction, and as resources become more scarce, wars will continue to erupt everywhere in the last battle to secure the so-called remaining liter of “juice” on Earth. How can we avoid total destruction by solving our energy crisis?

We have no choice, we have to find solutions, and we need them now. So let’s think hard on this problem, nothing else truly matters, since no one can deny that this is one main source of our misery.

We have heard for some years now that we are moving towards renewable energy, we even tried to oblige the world to reduce consumption and pollution, to move towards cleaner energies, whilst none of us intended to do the same within our own countries. When you look around, despite how desperate this world has become, nothing has truly happened.

We are perhaps running out of gas and oil, we are also suffocating in one huge smog, we are about to declare a Nuclear Third World War in order to secure more of what already may exist only in a small amount.

Some people say that perhaps there are more resources than we initially thought, but we are obviously acting on the assumption that those resources are running out. We are without a doubt desperate, and the worst of it is, this battle cannot be won, it can only bring the utmost disaster, the last war of our history.

What’s happening? Why have we not already got electric cars or at least hybrids? Why instead of reducing our carbon emissions are we ever more destroying the world? Why are we ready to kill unnecessarily millions of people to avoid being held at ransom by alarming costs for energy resources? Why is it that after killing millions of people and taking over many countries and their possessions, those natural resources are still highly expensive to us all? Why indeed.

None of us profits from this, only some big corporations and rich stockholders profit from these wars, and some corrupt government officials. Even war is no solution to our greatest problems. What should we do then, apart from impeaching and replacing our governments entirely, something which has already proven to be impossible?

They all think the same anyway, a change of government makes no difference, they all have the same obsession for war as the only possible solution to everything. I can already predict Obama will be the same.

I guess diplomacy never worked, I suppose we are just too greedy at the negotiation table. We want it all, with no sense of justice and fairness. We do not expect to pay for what we want so desperately, we will simply take it, as we have always done.

For a start, none of the renewable energies that we are heavily researching and developing at the moment, at high costs, are promising. Wind power, solar power, hydropower and geothermal power, they are all insufficient and impractical for our growing and desperate need for energy. How shocking! But, oh so well known and referenced… none of them offer a viable solution.

Ethanol is perhaps the worst, since as we witnessed in the world, using so much land to power our cars and trucks, simply prevents food to be grown, contributing to the worldwide famine causing the death of millions. Ethanol has been described by many experts as being a crime against humanity.

And what about nuclear energy? Lobbyists have moved quickly and have been far reaching in convincing us that it is the cleanest energy for the future, even though as we speak they are back-pedaling. The problem is, nuclear power brings nuclear waste which glows and is mortal for millennia, is quite dangerous for the population since a power station might explode at any given moment, and yeah, the output of energy you get for the input you put in, is not that great either. We won’t even talk about coal. This is a desperate world in search for desperate solutions which do not exist, yet.

So, let’s admit it, we are heading for disaster. Energy resources are running out, only wars can insure we will have enough for a limited amount of time, at the cost of killing and starving millions. And ultimately, it will all be for nothing, because global warming will finish us all if a nuclear war does not achieve the very same result first.

We also need to consider the new ice age, which has been predicted for decades now, hopefully it will cancel out global warming. And oh, have you looked into global dimming, this increase of human-made particles in the atmosphere which prevents the radiation from the Sun from reaching us? That too might help us, before it starts threatening us. As if we had not enough to worry about. We have reached a no win situation, we have reached the end. Can you put it any differently?

I have been furiously thinking. We need to find a solution, we need to solve the energy crisis, one way or another. And at this point, only radical solutions will do, nothing less. It will hurt, it will require a lot of thinking and planning and headaches, but it must be done.

One solution would be to ban altogether individual transportation, cars would become illegal, everyone will have to use public transport. We may then wish to oblige employers to keep their employees at home. Technology has evolved so much in the last two decades, we all have personal computers with high speed Internet connection, there is no need to get to an office in order to be harassed by management. Almost everyone who can work from home should. Employers have been so reticent to this idea, almost no one works from home. Let’s pass a law, let’s oblige them to make it a reality.

There are a myriad of other solutions, like obliging industries to upgrade to cleaner technologies, even if they have to declare bankruptcy in the process. America dislikes the idea so much, imagine China, it is unlikely to happen anytime soon.

We are running out of time, we are running out of solutions no one wishes to see being implemented. The warning signs are all around us and we have chosen to ignore them. If collectively we are not willing to do anything about it, the solution must then come from one person or a group of people, through a breakthrough technology of some sort. This is the last answer, and perhaps the only one.

Theoretical physics, chemistry, science. We could have hoped for a breakthrough, a theory of everything which suddenly would have solved all our problems. Infinite amount of energy almost for free, violating the laws of thermodynamics. Why not?

There are still many mysteries in science, so many anomalies, we are far from having discovered everything. And yet, nothing seems that promising on the horizon. It is unlikely science will bring us a breakthrough before we reach extinction, despite much hype to the contrary. It all goes largely ignored, if not suppressed.

What else is there then? Well, you might not appreciate this last solution, but desperate times call for desperate measures. There is one last avenue to consider, and let’s hope that we can make it work. Because at this point, I cannot see any other solution to prevent our destruction.

Barack Obama’s vice-presidential running mate, Mr. Joe Biden, has stated before in an interview with “grist”: “While campaigning for president in 2007, Biden said that, if elected, his top priority would be ‘energy security’. He has also been quoted as saying ‘If I could wave a wand, and the Lord said I could solve one problem, I would solve the energy crisis’.”

Let’s see if we can wave a wand and solve this crisis. We now need to enter the realm of the “crackpots”, and there have been many of them in the last 100 years. There is no way at this time to know if these people were simply insane or fools, or if they have simply been made to look that way. I am talking about those inventors who claim to have invented perpetual motion machines, free energy devices or over-unity devices (more output of energy than input, inexpensive energy).

We have all heard of this fantastic discovery at some time or another of someone who invented a car powered by water, many of them did so, apparently, and how they died mysteriously soon after. We have heard of those scientists discovering cold fusion. We read about new inventions producing lots of energy out of almost nothing.

And yet, we were led to believe that every single one of them turned out to be mistakes, experiences impossible to reproduce, or the fruit of madmen. Here is the list on Wikipedia, a very long list indeed, and highly compromised now:

History of perpetual motion machines
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_perpetual_motion_machines

Check out also this great book which presents a better list: “Suppressed Inventions and Other Discoveries” by Jonathan Eisen
http://www.amazon.com/Suppressed-Inventions-Other-Discoveries-Jonathan/dp/0895298090

And look at: “Over Unity Power” Research

Finally, if you first need a revolution in Physics and you are poised to find a Theory of Everything which, in the words of Agatha Christie: “One must provide an explanation for everything. Each thing has got to be explained away satisfactorily. If you have a theory that fits every fact — well, then, it must be the right one.” Then you should investigate Expansion Theory in the book “The Final Theory, Rethinking our Scientific Legacy” by Mark McCutcheon
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/1581126018/ref=nosim/dissertationcomd

Could all these people have been wrong and mistaken? They were so certain of their discoveries, they presented them to the world, when they knew full well that if suddenly no one else could reproduce those results, they would be covered with ridicule and it would annihilate all their credibility?

Even, many secured millions in investments, successfully created commercial companies, and announced that they would have products on the market within months. You don’t get investment without impressing investors. There was something there, and suddenly, in every single case, the dream vanished into thin air.

No wonder there is a whole conspiracy theory surrounding these “crackpots”, which claims that far from being useless inventions, these discoveries would change the world and save us all. That people in the shadow have been working very hard in the last 100 years to prevent any of these discoveries from reaching the mainstream and production lines. Oil and gas companies, governments, whatever, who knows. It might just be true. Have you ever wondered, and quickly forgotten, after the PR machine went through to convince us all that this was lunacy?

I decided to do a little bit of investigative journalism, I contacted my hub of friends with whom I work very hard to make people aware of where the world is heading, trying so desperately by any mean to save this world, and I got a great feedback. I cannot name any name or any particular invention or any particular company, because these people were seriously threatened with their life if they continued to work and develop their breakthrough technology.

This is at least one conspiracy theory we can eliminate, any investigative journalist contacting a handful of these inventors, will quickly realize the reality that big players will stop at nothing to prevent any new clean energy from reaching the market; energies that could produce such a high output compared with the input, it would solve all our problems.

It would eliminate wars, our dependence on unstable countries, it will render any pipeline useless, it would annihilate all those money grabbing oil and gas corporations, reduce considerably corruption in governments worldwide, also in the high end world of finance. It would boost productivity and eliminate starvation. It might even eliminate poverty. What have we got to lose at this point? Nothing, as we are desperate.

We have a lot to gain, we have to explore this avenue, however dangerous it is. I don’t know, work in secrecy perhaps, reviewing these technologies one by one and find one that works, and find a way to bring it to the mainstream. It should not be that hard, all those inventors have taken patents to protect their discoveries, anyone can look for these patents and build these inventions. So let’s do it, let’s test it, let’s make it come true!

Even Nikola Tesla, who invented wireless communication (radio), alternating current electric power systems, induction motor and rotating magnetic fields, who has been described as the Father of Physics, the man who invented the twentieth century, the patron saint of modern electricity and helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution, had such ideas we need to get back to. He believed, and even demonstrated, that energy can be transmitted wirelessly, and can be gathered for free from the ionosphere. Have a look at this:

Free energy suppression
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_energy_suppression

“In June 1902, Tesla moved his laboratory operations from his Houston Street laboratory to Wardenclyffe. However, in 1903, when the tower structure was near completion, it was still not yet functional due to last-minute design changes.

“Tesla intended for the tower to demonstrate how the ionosphere could be used to provide free electricity to everyone without the need for power lines. Morgan, who could not foresee any financial gain from providing free electricity to everyone, balked. Construction costs eventually exceeded the money provided by J. P. Morgan, and additional financiers were reluctant to come forward.

“By July 1904, Morgan (and the other investors) finally decided they would not provide any additional financing. Morgan also encouraged other investors to avoid the project.

“In May 1905, Tesla’s patents on alternating current motors and other methods of power transmission expired, halting royalty payments and causing a severe reduction of funding to the Wardenclyffe Tower. In an attempt to find alternative funding, Tesla advertised the services of the Wardenclyffe facility, but he met with little success. By this time, Tesla had also designed the Tesla turbine at Wardenclyffe and produced Tesla coils for sale to various businesses.

“Soon after Tesla’s death, the FBI instructed the government’s Alien Property Custodian office to take possession of his papers and property, despite his US citizenship. His safe was also opened. After the FBI was contacted by the War Department, his papers were declared to be top secret. The personal effects were seized on the advice of presidential advisers; J. Edgar Hoover declared the case most secret, because of the nature of Tesla’s inventions and patents.

“However, the likely cause for the seizure of Teslas’ documents was that he had been working on the teleforce weapon, or death ray, that he had unsuccessfully marketed to the US War Department – not because of his work on free energy devices which had ended eleven years earlier.”

For more details on this topic, see: Wardenclyffe Tower
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wardenclyffe_Tower

The conspiracy theory could possibly start with Nikola Tesla, over a hundred years ago. Where investors suddenly were afraid that, with free energy, there would not be any profit. And so, Tesla was shut down. It was perhaps not so worrying a hundred years ago, but today we are not living in the same world. It is no longer a question of profits, it is a question of survival, avoiding another world war which will most likely be the last, avoiding a global warming cataclysm and the extinction of humanity.

We have no choice, we have to go back to all those ideas, and seriously develop them, make them come true, as soon as possible. The government, or some sort of association if governments cannot be trusted, will have to insure the safety and security of its employees. No one can be threatened in the development of the technology which will solve our energy crisis and every single one of our actual problems.

By the way, there is no need to threaten me, my involvement in all this ends with this present article designed to motivate others to break free and save us all.

Somehow, let’s solve the energy crisis and save this planet. I know we can, because we have to in order to survive. Let’s just walk all over anyone willing to stop this from happening, they can no longer matter, can they? Even “they” must understand this now. If they can’t, we’ll just have to do something about it, make them understand somehow, because we have reached the point where our very survival is at stake.

They may not care about solving the energy crisis, as long as there is money to be made, but since none of us will make any money from their hidden agenda, or profit from it, surely we care for any possible other solution over the horizon, no matter how crazy it is? Surely we truly do care about solving the energy crisis?

Well, I have offered a few solutions. Better than threatening the world with nuclear bombs. Now, since you all seem to know better than I, let’s hear your own solutions to this energy crisis.

  2. Do these things, and we can save the world for future generation sake.

    1. Enforce 2 children per family right now across the world. Human over population is the No. 1 reason.

    2. Invest in renewable energy – Solar, wind, geo thermal

    Or, let global warming do the job to kill off 1/2 human population slowly and only the rich countries/people survive.

  3. Peak oil, global warming, environmental destruction, dangers from war and terrorism — it would seem we need to invest in energy security. Why don’t we?

    We hear from the media that alternative renewables can only provide a small portion of the energy we need, and it’s not reliable. Solar power can only be generated when the sun shines, wind only when the wind blows, and so on. And that’s true, as far as it goes. It is true that renewables would have to be a mix.

    But I just read an article on http://www.metaefficient.com (which they got from the Wall Street Journal) about the problems the Danish utility company is having with wind power. Because they have a lot of windy coastline, Denmark built enough windmills along it to generate 20 percent of their electricity.

    But often, it gets really windy. When that happens, the percentage of electricity generated by the windmills can climb to 40 percent. If that happens, the price of electricity can drop to zero “leaving utilities scrambling to offload excess power or take a financial hit”.

    So far, they have been selling the extra electricity cheap to Sweden and Norway. This is neither a desirable nor a long-term solution. So the Danish utility company is planning to build a country-wide system for charging electric cars with the excess power. (Israel is doing the same.)

    So the problem in Denmark is that renewables are just so darn — well — renewable. The wind just keeps blowing. Blowing down the price of electricity. Thus the task of the utility company becomes finding ways to use excess electricity. In other words, to find ways to limit the supply of electricity enough to keep the price up. (Are you wondering why they need to keep the price up?)

    And all this bother because they have built enough windmills to provide 20 percent of their electricity on ‘normal’ wind days. Kind of makes me wonder what would happen if they built enough for 50 percent wind power and 50 percent solar power — or 50 percent tidal power. Would electricity be virtually free except for small maintenance and labor costs? So abundant we couldn’t find ways to use it all?

    Profit demands scarcity. Faced with abundance, our economy would be in ruins. It seems the name of the “man behind the curtain” in our energy woes is Profit.

  4. Forget global warming: Ending the Resource wars is THE BEST REASON to get “off the grid!”

    Remaining on the grid is almost akin to signing oneself up to functional slavery to industrialists who treat energy like commodities, and then use these “commodities” as weapons.

    If we could only re-envision energy as something as natural as oxygen, something you breathe like air. Barring health difficulties one rarely needs artificial/corporate intervention to take advantage of the air that you breathe. In a way I see the (bogus, I think) “global warming crisis” as a way to tax and commodify BREATHING. How messed up is that!

    Back in the day, the guy who controlled the waterhole was king. Then it was salt, and we had salt wars. We had peppercorn wars. TEA wars. We had freaking tulip wars.

    It’s testosterone poisoning, I tell you. Can’t we all be self sufficient and then channel our excess testosterone into sports and impressing the opposite sex?
