70% of the Sun’s radiant energy penetrates the Earth’s atmosphere. 30% is reflected by the atmosphere. The Sun’s radiant energy exists day and night, 24/7, 365 days a year, for billions of years. It is the only source of energy we will need to live out the rest of our lives and the entire life cycle of our descendants for billions of years.

Brooklyn Eagle - July 10, 1932

“I have harnessed the cosmic rays and caused them to operate a motive device. … I have advanced a theory of the cosmic rays and at every step of my investigations I have found it completely justified. The attractive features of the cosmic rays is their constancy. They shower down on us throughout the whole 24 hours, and if a [power] plant is developed to use their power it will not require devices for storing energy as would be necessary with devices using wind, tide or sunlight. All of my investigations seem to point to the conclusion that they are small particles, each carrying so small a charge that we are justified in calling them neutrons. They move with great velocity, exceeding that of light. More than 25 years ago I began my efforts to harness the cosmic rays and I can now state that I have succeeded in operating a motive device by means of them. I will tell you in the most general way, the cosmic ray ionizes the air, setting free many charged ions and electrons. These charges are captured in a condenser [capacitor] which is made to discharge through the circuit of the motor. I have hopes of building my motor on a large scale, but circumstances have not been favorable to carrying out my plan.” ~ Nikola Tesla states:

Further development of harnessing the cosmic rays to power motors was stopped by J. P. Morgan - an American financier, banker and art collector who dominated corporate finance and industrial consolidation during his time. In 1892 Morgan arranged the merger of Edison General Electric and Thomson-Houston Electric Company to form General Electric. After financing the creation of the Federal Steel Company he merged the Carnegie Steel Company and several other steel and iron businesses to form the United States Steel Corporation in 1901.

J.P. Morgan kills Tesla’s free-energy development

In 1900, Morgan financed inventor Nikola Tesla and his Wardenclyffe Tower with $150,000 for experiments in radio. However, in 1903, when the tower structure was near completion, J. P. Morgan threw a wrench in the project’s completion when Morgan wanted to know “Where can I put the meter?” Tesla had no answer. Tesla’s vision of free power did not agree with Morgan’s corporate view; nor would it pay for the maintenance of the transmission system. Construction costs eventually exceeded the money provided by Morgan, and additional financiers were reluctant to come forth. By July 1904, Morgan (and the other investors) finally decided they would not provide any additional financing. Morgan also advised other investors to avoid the project.

J. P. Morgan enslaves the U.S. people

The Panic of 1907 (a carbon copy of today’s financial crisis - coincidence??) was a financial crisis that almost crippled the American economy. Major New York banks were on the verge of bankruptcy and there was no mechanism to rescue them until Morgan stepped in personally and took charge.

Treasury Secretary George B. Cortelyou earmarked $35 million of federal money to quell the storm but had no easy way to use it. Morgan now took personal charge, meeting with the nation’s leading financiers in his New York mansion; he forced them to devise a plan to meet the crisis. James Stillman, president of the National City Bank, also played a central role. Morgan organized a team of bank and trust executives which redirected money between banks, secured further international lines of credit, and bought plummeting stocks of healthy corporations. A delicate political issue arose regarding the brokerage firm of Moore and Schley, which was deeply involved in a speculative pool in the stock of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company. Moore and Schley had pledged over six millions of the Tennessee Coal and Iron (TCI) stock for loans among the Wall Street banks. The banks had called the loans, and the firm could not pay. If Moore and Schley should fail, a hundred more failures would follow and then all Wall Street might go to pieces. Morgan decided they had to save Moore and Schley. TCI was one of the chief competitors of U.S. Steel and it owned valuable iron and coal deposits. Morgan controlled U.S. Steel and he decided it had to buy the TCI stock from Moore and Schley. Judge Gary, head of US Steel, agreed, but would there be antitrust implications that could cause grave trouble for US Steel, which was already dominant in the steel industry? Morgan sent Gary to see President Theodore Roosevelt, who promised legal immunity for the deal. U.S. Steel thereupon paid $30 million for the TCI stock and Moore and Schley was saved. The announcement had an immediate effect; by November 7, 1907, the panic was over. Vowing to never let it happen again, and realizing that in a future crisis there was not likely to be another Morgan, banking and political leaders, led by Senator Nelson Aldrich devised a plan that became the Federal Reserve System in 1913. The crisis underscored the need for a powerful mechanism, and Morgan supported the move to create the Federal Reserve System.

Device to Harness Cosmic Energy by Tesla:

This new power for the driving of the world’s machinery will be derived from the energy which operates the universe, the cosmic energy, whose central source for the earth is the sun and which is everywhere present in unlimited quantities.

Tesla’s first radiant energy receiver stored static electricity obtained from the air and converted it to a usable form. Tesla’s invention is a simple version of T.H. Moray’s device. Moray’s device used a unique rectifier (RE-valve) to efficiently capture the static electricity from the surrounding air. Moray’s oscillator tubes (magnetron transducers) utilized this high-voltage energy to generate an internal secondary “cold” fusion reaction.

Stick an antenna up in the air, the higher the better, and wire it to one side of a capacitor, the other going to a good earth ground, and the potential difference will then charge the capacitor. Connect across the capacitor some sort of switching device so that it can be discharged at rhythmic intervals, and you have an oscillating electric output. T.H. Moray simply expanded on Tesla’s idea to use high-voltage to create ionic oscillation.

Tesla’s free-energy concept was patented in 1901 as an “Apparatus for the Utilization of Radiant Energy.” The patent refers to “the sun, as well as other sources of radiant energy, like cosmic rays,” that the device works at night is explained in terms of the night-time availability of cosmic rays. Tesla also refers to the ground as “a vast reservoir of negative electricity.”

Tesla was fascinated by radiant energy and its free-energy possibilities. He called the Crooke’s radiometer, a device which has vanes that spin in a vacuum when exposed to radiant energy “a beautiful invention.” He believed that it would become possible to harness energy directly by “connecting to the very wheel-work of nature.” On his 76th birthday at his yearly ritual press conference, Tesla announced a “cosmic-ray motor” when asked if it was more powerful than the Crooke’s radiometer, he answered, “thousands of times more powerful.”

In 1901 Nikola Tesla was one the first to identify “radiant energy.” Tesla says that the source of this energy is our Sun. He concluded that the Sun emits small particles, each carrying so small of a charge, that they move with great velocity, exceeding that of light. Tesla further states that these particles are the neutron particles. Tesla believed that these neutron particles were responsible for all radioactive reactions. Radiant matter is in tune with these neutron particles. Radiant matter is simply a re-transmitter of energy from one state to another.

How Tesla’s radiant energy receiver worked

From the electric Potential that exists between the elevated plate (plus) and the ground (minus), energy builds up in the capacitor, and, after “a suitable time interval,” the accumulated energy will “manifest itself in a powerful discharge” that can do work. The capacitor, says Tesla, should be “of considerable electrostatic capacity, ” and its dielectric made of “the best quality mica, for it has to withstand potentials that could rupture a weaker dielectric.”

Tesla gives various options for the switching device. One is a rotary switch that resembles a Tesla circuit controller, another is an electrostatic device consisting of two very light, membranous conductors suspended in a vacuum. These sense the energy build-up in the capacitor, one charging positive, the other negative, and, at a certain charge level, are attracted, touch, and thus fire the capacitor. Tesla also mentions another switching device consisting of a minute air gap or weak dielectric film that breaks down suddenly when a certain potential is reached.

Tesla received two patents for this radiant energy device; U.S. Patent No. 685,957 - Apparatus for the Utilization of Radiant Energy and U.S. Patent No. 685,958 - Method of Utilizing Radiant Energy. Both these patents were filed on March 21, 1901 and granted on November 5, 1901. In these patents he explains:

“The sun, as well as other sources of radiant energy throw off minute particles of matter positively electrified, which, impinging upon the upper plate, communicate continuously an electrical charge to the same. The opposite terminal of the condenser being connected to ground, which may be considered as a vast reservoir of negative electricity, a feeble current flows continuously into the condenser and inasmuch as the particles are …charged to a very high potential, this charging of the condenser may continue, as I have actually observed, almost indefinitely, even to the point of rupturing the dielectric.”

The Earth’s Electrostatic Charge

Tesla’s intent was to condense the energy trapped between the earth and its upper atmosphere and to transform it into an electric current. He pictured the sun as an immense ball of electricity, positively charged with a potential of some 200 billion volts. The earth, on the other hand, is charged with negative electricity. The tremendous electrical force between these two bodies constituted, at least in part, what he called cosmic energy. It varied from night to day and from season to season but it is always present.

The positive particles are stopped at the ionosphere and between it and the negative charges in the ground, a distance of 60 miles, there is a large difference of voltage - something on the order of 360,000 volts. With the gases of the atmosphere acting as an insulator between these two opposite stores of electrical charges, the region between the ground and the edge of space traps a great deal of energy. Despite the large size of the planet, it is electrically like a capacitor which keeps positive and negative charges apart by using the air as a non-conducting material as an insulator.

The earth has a charge of 96,500 coulombs. With a potential of 360,000 volts, the earth constitutes a capacitor of .25 farads (farads = coulombs/volts). If the formula for calculating the energy stored in a capacitor (E =1/2CV2) is applied to the earth, it turns out that the ambient medium contains 1.6 x 1011 joules or 4.5 megawatt-hours of electrical energy. In order to utilize this high-voltage energy you must do two things — make an energy sink and then devise a way of making the “sink” oscillate.

“Zero-Point Energy?”

Such a “sink” has to be at a lower energy state than the surrounding medium and, for the energy to continually flow into it, the energy must be continually pumped out of it. Additionally, this ”
sink” must maintain a lower energy state while meeting the power requirements of the load attached to it. Electrical energy, watt-seconds, is a product of volts x amps x seconds. Because the period of oscillation does not change, either voltage or current has to be the variable in this system’s energy equation. Bifilar wound coils are used in the system because a bifilar wound coil maximizes the voltage difference between its turns, the current is then minimized.

A coil in our system, then, will be set into oscillation at its resonant frequency by an external power source. During the “zero-point” portion of its cycle the coil will appear as one plate of a capacitor. As the voltage across the coil increases, the amount of charge it can siphon will increase. The energy that is taken into the coil through the small energy window (zero-point), call it what you will, appears to be the key to the success of this system. It is at this zero-point where energy is condensed into positive and negative components of current. When energy escapes from the “sink” the magnetic field collapses and a strong magnetic quake is created in it’s wake. A properly tuned system can capture and convert radiant energy in such a prescribed arrangement.

Tesla ‘Harnesses’ Cosmic Energy

Inventor announces discovery to displace fuel in driving machinery. Calls Sun main source. A principle by which power for driving machinery of the world may be developed from the cosmic energy which operates the universe, has been discovered by Nikola Tesla, noted physicist and inventor of scientific devices, he announced today. This principle, which taps a source of power described as “everywhere present in unlimited quantities” and which may be transmitted by wire or wireless from central plants to any part of the globe, will eliminate the need of coal, oil, gas or any other of the common fuels, he said. Dr. Tesla in a statement today at his hotel indicated the time was not far distant when the principle would be ready for practical commercial development. Asked whether the sudden introduction of his principle would upset the present economic system, Dr. Tesla replied, “It is badly upset already.” He added that now as never before was the time ripe for the development of new resources. While in its present form, the theory calls for the development of energy in central plants requiring vast machinery. Dr. Tesla said he might be able to work out a plan for its use by individuals. The central source of cosmic energy for the earth is the Sun, Dr. Tesla said, but “night will not interrupt the flow of new power supply.

Clearly Tesla is not talking about an atomic reactor. He is directly converting ionized particles generated by radiant matter. It is not nuclear energy as we know it today. Radiant Energy is directly converted to electrical power! Tesla believed that the Sun generates highly charged particles and that radiant matter is a re-transmitter of energy, it is this transfer of energy that could be used for practical purposes.

The Electric Auto that almost triumphed: Power Source of ‘31 car still a mystery
by A.C. Greene, January 24th, 1931 Dallas Morning News

It is a mystery car once demonstrated by Nikola Tesla, developer of alternating current, that might have made electrics triumphant.

Supported by the Pierce-Arrow Co. and Westinghouse in 1931, he took the gasoline engine from a new Pierce-Arrow and replaced it with an 80-horsepower alternating-current electric motor with no external power source. From the electric motor trailed two very thick cables, which connected with the dashboard. In addition, there was an ordinary 12-volt storage battery. (”There was a 12-volt Willard battery installed in the car, but it was for the lights only and much too small to run the car. In any case.”) The motor was rated at 80 horsepower. Maximum rotor speed was stated to be 30 turns per second (1800 rpm). A 6-foot vertical antenna rod was fitted into the rear section of the car.

At the appointed time, Nikola Tesla arrived from New York City and inspected the Pierce-Arrow automobile. He then went to a local radio store and purchased a handful of tubes (12 radio vacuum tubes), wires and assorted resistors. A box measuring 24 inches long, 12 inches wide and 6 inches high was assembled housing the circuit. The “power receiver” was then placed into the dashboard of the car and its wires connected to the antenna and to the air-cooled, brushless motor. Two rods 1/4” in diameter stuck out of the box about 3” in length. Tesla began making adjustments on the “power receiver”

Mr. Tesla got into the driver’s seat, pushed the two rods in and stated, “We now have power”. He put the car into gear and it moved forward! This vehicle, powered by an A.C. motor, was driven to speeds of 90 m.p.h. and performed better than any internal combustion engine of its day! One week was spent testing the vehicle. Several newspapers in Buffalo reported this test. When asked where the power came from, Tesla replied, “From the ethers all around us”. (Ethers is Electromagnetic radiation. Radio waves is electromagnetic radiation which has the lowest frequency, the longest wavelength, and is produced by charged particles moving back and forth) Several people suggested that Tesla was mad and somehow in league with sinister forces of the universe. He became incensed, removed his mysterious box from the vehicle and returned to his laboratory in New York City. His secret died with him! Or did it?

How did ethers power the vehicle? The owner of FuelReducer has been trying to answer that question since 2005, when he first read about it in an old magazine he found in a neighbors barn. According to data from the 5 years of investigation there is one very plausible explanation as to how ethers powered the car. Tesla’s mystery box was a valve amplifier or tube amplifier. It is is a type of electronic amplifier that makes use of vacuum tubes to increase the power and/or amplitude of a signal. The simplest valve amplifier was invented by John Ambrose Fleming while working for the Marconi Company in London in 1904 and named the diode, as it had two electrodes. The diode conducted electricity in one direction only and was used as a radio detector and a rectifier. In 1906 Lee De Forest added a third electrode and invented the first electronic amplifying device, the triode, which he named the Audion. This additional control grid modulates the current that flows between cathode and anode.

In Tesla’s case, a valve amplifier was used to increase the power or amplitude of the ordinary radio waves that were received by the 6-foot vertical antenna rod that was fitted into the rear section of the car. An antenna is a transducer that transmits or receives electromagnetic waves. In other words, Tesla used the antenna mounted on the rear of the car to convert the freely available electromagnetic radiation called radio waves into electrical current.

Tesla bought vacuum tube diodes which is a vacuum tube with two electrodes; a plate and a cathode. A diode is a two-terminal electronic component that conducts electric current in only one direction while blocking current in the opposite direction (the reverse direction). Thus, the diode can be thought of as an electronic version of a check valve. This unidirectional behavior is called rectification, and is used to convert alternating current (AC or the power that comes from your home’s electrical outlets) to direct current (DC or the power from a battery). AC power circuit is a sine wave. Audio and radio signals carried on electrical wires (such as an antenna) are also examples of alternating current.

Tesla used the radio vacuum tubes wires and assorted resistors to build a valve amplifier or tube amplifier 24 inches long, 12 inches wide and 6 inches high, with a pair of 3-inch rods 1/4” in diameter sticking out. The pair of rods that Tesla pushed in were used to close (complete) the circuit - like an on off switch. The rod ends were most likely connected directly to the car antenna and by pushing them into the tube amplifier the radio waves that were received from the air by the antenna were plugged into the amplifier - like you would do when you plugged an electric guitar into an amplifier. Like the electric guitar amplifier the signal generated by striking a cord (string) of a guitar would travel from the guitar through the wire connecting the guitar to the amplifier and into the amplifier where the barely audible tone would then be amplified. An electric guitar without an amplifier is essential an air guitar until it is plugged into an amplifier. The amplifier amplifies the sound wave. That is how Tesla was able to amplify and convert the invisible electromagnetic radiation called radio waves into electricity to power the AC motor in the 1931 Pierce-Arrow. The word electricity comes from the fact that current is nothing more than electrons moving along a conductor, like an antenna, that have been harnessed for energy. Tesla used an antenna (an electrical conductor) and an amplifier to harness energy.

Why hasn’t anyone revealed this 80 year old secret? Tesla built a free energy device. A device that would threaten the oil industry, the nuclear energy industry and the hydro electric power monopoly. A device that would bankrupt every oil refinery in the World. A device that would literally put an end to Global warming. Disease and illnesses caused by pollution from oil and gas products would simply disappear. If Tesla’s invention was put into mass production the World would never have been involved in wars in the Middle East and Afghanistan, the Exxon Mobil and BP oil spills would never have occurred, and millions of people would still be alive and very healthy today.

Most hybrid vehicles today can operate at gas mileages of up to 50 miles per gallon on the highway and 30-40 miles per gallon in the city. To me that isn’t all that great considering most strictly gasoline powered cars have done that already. With all the hype these days about fuel economy why are we producing hybrid cars and trucks with the same fuel economy as gasoline fueled cars and trucks? The car manufacturers were forced to make modifications to their manufacturing to give better fuel economy yet today they still average the same as a vehicle manufactured in the 1980s and 1990s. In fact, according to a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency report, instead of achieving higher gas mileage, the numbers have been declining slowly for years! According to the report, the gas mileage of “light duty” vehicles (cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks) is actually going down! The EPA report shows that average gas mileage for these vehicles peaked at 22.1 miles per gallon in 1987. In 2005 it’s down to 21.0 miles per gallon. This is in spite of the recent introduction of high gas mileage vehicles like hybrids.

I am about to let you in on a little secret. There are vehicles already on the market that’s rated for 46 MPG on the highway, and they’re not hybrids, they’re the secret nobody talks about: Diesels!

During the 1970s energy crisis the Volkswagen Rabbit Diesel, even though it was a little noisy and a little smoky, was incredibly reliable and a light-footed driver could easily exceed 50 MPG and sometimes even 60 MPG in them! 40 years later and gasoline mileage has slowly been slipping for several years, according to EPA, but diesels have been getting better and better. No more rattling engine. No more clouds of black smoke. No more weak performance. Diesel fuel has gotten cleaner, diesel reliability has gotten even better, diesel mileage often exceeds hybrids, and performance is outstanding. If you haven’t noticed already diesel prices are lower than gasoline prices too. Another known fact is that diesel engines last a lot longer than gasoline engines.

Why aren’t more people driving diesel cars that get 30-40% better mileage than gas cars? Why are the sales of new diesel cars banned in some U.S. states?

Two words: Kyoto Treaty. The Kyoto Treaty mandates the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and it has been signed by over 140 countries. The only major country not to sign is the United States. By refusing to sign the Kyoto Protocols, the United States is not bound by the treaty. That means that the EPA pollution standards for cars don’t include greenhouse emissions. Diesels have better emissions than gas engines in some areas the EPA measures and worse emissions in other areas. Overall, by U.S. measurement standards, the higher Nitrogen Oxide and particulate emissions of diesels mean that they’re classified as higher pollution cars than gasoline-powered cars. For that reason, some states have banned the sale of new diesels.

But take the same diesel vehicles to Europe where the Kyoto Protocols apply and they’re considered much more environmentally friendly than gasoline-powered cars and trucks! Diesels have much lower greenhouse gas emissions than gas engines. That probably explains why 40-50% of the passenger vehicles in Europe are diesel powered while less than 1% of U.S. passenger vehicles are diesels and very few new diesel models are available in the U.S. — mostly Volkswagens and Mercedes for cars, with a few manufacturers offering trucks.

But the technology that meet the terms of the Kyoto Treaty have already been developed and are now available in the U.S. Diesel engine design continues to advance and new designs have already drastically lowered NOx and particulate emissions. Diesel fuel standards have already evolved and the diesel fuels are now being made with lower sulfur to burn cleaner. Perhaps the most enduring quality of driving a diesel powered vehicle is that they all can run on both diesel and the renewable biodiesel. Biodiesel fuel is made from vegetable oil (Rudolf Diesel’s original engine ran on peanut oil) and is already available in most states and is being used in current diesel vehicles with dramatically lower emissions than existing petroleum diesel fuel. Biodiesel is a renewable fuel that can be made from many different vegetable crops.

Which would you rather have; a 2010 Chevy Equinox which they claim gets better fuel efficiency than the Honda CR-V & the Toyota Rav-4 at 32 MPG on the highway, or a 2010 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid or 2010 GMC Yukon Hybrid having fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg city and highway (both hybrids have worse fuel efficiency than 1987 vehicles that had fuel economy ratings of 22.1 miles per gallon) for four-wheel-drive models or a diesel car or truck that will give almost double the mileage at 50 and even 60 mpg? Is getting a hybrid worth it? Tahoe Hybrid pricing starts at $50,490 for two-wheel drive and $53,295 for 4WD.

Benefits of Diesel Fuel

Engines utilizing diesel fuel have higher torque and higher towing capacity, which make it a desirable choice for towing trailers, boats and other towing applications. Reductions in the fuel’s sulfur content have made it more environmentally friendly.

Fuel Efficiency - Diesel fuel contains more energy per gallon than gasoline, which results in an average of 30 percent better fuel efficiency.

Cooler Fuel - Diesel fuel prolongs engine life by burning at a cooler temperature and reducing wear.

Better Lubricity - Diesel is a high-lubricity fuel, which reduces scarring on internal metal parts.

Reduced Greenhouse Gases - Vehicles that run on diesel fuel produce 10 to 20 percent fewer greenhouses gases than their gasoline counterparts.

Safety - Diesel has a lower flash point, making it safer to store and transport.
