Future Energy eNewsEditor Honored
Thomas Valone, PhD, is being honored as one of the four plenary speakers on Friday, April 15, the opening day of the symposium, on the topic of "Tesla's Legacy: Electromagnetic Healing Devices." In 1898, Nikola Tesla presented his findings of therapeutic uses for his newly invented high frequency Tesla coil oscillator to the eighth annual meeting of the American Electro-Therapeutic Association. Thirty years later, in 1932, Dr. Gustave Kolisher announced to the American Congress of Physical Therapy that "Tesla's high-frequency electrical currents are bringing about highly beneficial results in dealing with cancer, surpassing anything that could be accomplished with ordinary surgery." With the historical suppression by the AMA and FDA, most doctors today are unaware of the scientific wealth of techniques for healing with electrotherapy. Recent studies have continued to demonstrate incontrovertible evidence for the benefits of electromagnetic healing devices, for a wide variety of illnesses, with a surprising lack of harmful side effects. The discovery that electrons are antioxidants, for example, will change the way we fight free radicals in the future. An overview of the rich history of early devices, thanks to archives of thewww.ElectrotherapyMuseum.com, and some of the recent scientific findings, based on the science of bioelectromagnetics, will be presented.
Registration and program information is online atwww.wholepersonhealing.com or available by calling Meredith Weber at Penn State University, 814-865-2510. A proceedings of the symposium is also planned to be printed. Sponsors include American Biotech Labs, Chopra Foundation, Digital Cognisense, and EarthPulse Technologies.
2) ET Visitors: Scientists See High Likelihood
Space.com, January 14, 2005http://space.com/searchforlife/et_betterodds_050114.html
A team of American scientists note that recent astrophysical discoveries suggest that we should find ourselves in the midst of one or more extraterrestrial civilizations. Moreover, they argue it is a mistake to reject all UFO reports since some evidence for the theoretically-predicted extraterrestrial visitors might just be found there. Extrasolar planetary detection is on the verge of becoming mundane. "We are in the curious situation today that our best modern physics and astrophysics theories predict that we should be experiencing extraterrestrial visitation, yet any possible evidence of such lurking in the UFO phenomenon is scoffed at within our scientific community," contends astrophysicist Bernard Haisch.
However the media is slowing coming around as ABC News recently aired a two-hour special on "UFOs, Seeing is Believing" for the first time and has offered the program to the public as a video or DVD fromwww.ABCNews.com. Dr. Haisch is well-known for his Physical Review journal articles on zero-point energy and the zero-point field based on stochastic electrodynamics (SED). See for example, "Inertia as reaction of the vacuum to accelerated motion," Physics Letters A, 240 (1998) 115-126. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org -- Ed. note.

4) 'The Future of Energy' Presented to Shelton CT Chapter of the World Future Society
Pal Asija, WFS Shelton Chapter, March 21,2005,www.ourpal.com
On March 12, 2005, Dr. Thomas Valone, Founder and President of Integrity Research Institute, a Washington, DC Think Tank dedicated to future energy solutions addressed the local chapter (now in its 5th year) of the World Future Society which meets in Shelton, CT from Noon to 3 PM on 2nd Saturday of each month.
Dr. Valone mesmerized the audience with his masterful presentation on "Future Energy Technologies" and handled their questions with exceptional and exemplary skill and felicity. In spite of over a foot of snow, about 20 futurists, inventors, intellectuals and energy professionals attended. In over one hour of PowerPoint presentation with over 60 slides, Dr. Valone covered the following topics in considerable depth:
1. Tesla Technology and how IRI is trying to resurrect his inventions like wireless transmission and augmentation of power as it propagates through the ionosphere. The healing power of the Tesla coil and the use of Earth's ELF (Extremely Low Frequencies) for therapeutic purposes in such devices as an "Electric Chair" (no relationship to the electric chair used in electrocution of prisoners on death row).

7) Barton Announces Full Committee Markup On Energy Bill
Alliance for Energy and Economic Growth, Post Office Box 1200, Washington, DC 20013-1200www.yourenergyfuture.org
WASHINGTON - House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton today announced that he will hold a full committee markup beginning Tuesday, April 5 on the Energy Policy Act of 2005.
"An open process is the best process," said Barton, R-Texas. "I hope we can produce a bipartisan bill because this is the Congress where we are going to enact comprehensive energy legislation."
U.S. light crude closed today at $55.70 a barrel.
"Oil prices are at record highs and every day we grow more dependent on foreign sources of oil," Barton said. "The Energy Policy Act of 2005 will put Americans to work developing our resources and expanding production for the good of the nation. From conventional and unconventional sources together, we have abundant resources that we can develop in an environmentally friendly way."
Highlights of the legislation are:
In the House and its committees, a total of 179 hours of floor debate and markup debate have been devoted to energy policy since 2001. There were 80 hearings, 12 markup sessions, and 279 amendments considered. That does not include 72 hours of House-Senate conference committee meetings. A comprehensive energy bill has previously passed the House four separate times.
On March 16, 2005, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee approved a renewable fuels bill that would continue increasing the amount of ethanol and other biofuels used in gasoline. The legislation (S 606) would create guaranteed markets for corn and other crops by requiring refiners to use 6 billion gallons of renewable fuels by 2012. (That would be an increase from 3.8 billion gallons projected in 2006.) The bill also includes a provision to end within four years the use of the petrochemical fuel additive called methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), which some states already have banned over concerns about groundwater contamination. The legislation recommends providing financial assistance to help MTBE producers shift to other products and would let the government spend funds from the Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund on MTBE cleanup. Although the committee approved the bill by voice vote, four senators asked to be recorded in opposition: Barbara Boxer, D-Calif.; Frank R. Lautenberg, D-N.J.; John W. Warner, R-Va.; and James M. Jeffords, I-Vt.

8) U.S. presses China on cleaner energy
Apr 6, 2005
By STEPHANIE HOO, ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER
BEIJING -- A U.S. energy official was in Beijing on Wednesday seeking Chinese investment to build the first zero-emissions coal-fired power plant.
The U.S. government research project, called FutureGen, would turn coal into gas before burning it and then trap pollutants so they aren't released into the atmosphere.
"I invite China to be among the first to join FutureGen," said Mark Maddox, deputy assistant secretary of energy, in a text of remarks he made to Chinese officials.
A FutureGen plant would cost $950 million to build, with the U.S. inviting foreign partners to buy in for $80 million.
Pollution control hasn't been enough of a priority for China, though, as it tries to produce as much energy as possible as cheaply as it can, said a senior U.S. official who briefed reporters on condition of anonymity.
"There seems to be some begrudging understanding that they need to do it cleaner, but they are trying to do it on a very tight budget," the official said.
The price tag for building the most advanced, cleanest plant is up to three times as much as for an old-fashioned coal-burning plant.
But, the U.S. is working to convince China that better technology, while expensive, can raise efficiency, reduce pollutants and improve safety, the official said.
Apart from raising concerns about environmental damage, China's surging energy needs also place the country into competition with the United States for coal and oil supplies, he said.
"They are putting such a premium on security of energy supplies that they are probably driving prices unnecessarily," the official said.
China's crude oil imports soared 35 percent last year to 840 million barrels, helping push world prices to their current highs.
"Their policy seems to be at this point: energy at any cost," he said.
