Will Future Cars Pay for Themselves as Power Plants? Using breakthrough technologies, future cars can be mobile power plants, capable of selling power to utilities when suitably parked. Such vehicles can pay for themselves. Maximizing the speed of this development can hasten replacement of fossil fuels. A remarkable way Angels can support green ventures guarantees against loss and provides a minimum 8% per-annum return.

End Unemployment and Poverty! HUMAN INVESTMENT tax credits can generate 6 million jobs and help create 4 million small firms. This is a tested idea that resulted in 2 million jobs in 1977-78. SECOND INCOMES independent of jobs and savings can open a path to ending poverty and creating abundance for all. Two pieces of bi-partisan legislation can transform our economy and provide a model for the entire world.

The most dangerous "cliff": A fuel pool hanging 100 feet above the ground in Fukushima! "No matter where we are on this planet, our lives are still threatened every day by a Unit 4 fuel pool left hanging 100 feet in the air. At any moment, an earthquake we know is coming could send that pool crashing to the ground." Harvey Wasserman Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory

SOLAR MEGASTORMS can GENERATE a GLOBAL NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE MILLIONS of LIVES may DEPEND on WISE, RAPID, EFFECTIVE, ACTION! Giant Sunspot Now Aimed Directly at Earth. The largest active region seen on the sun since 2005 has rotated to the center of the sun's face, as seen from Earth--which means any eruptions it produces will be aimed right at us.

A SURPRISING NUCLEAR THREAT CAN GENERATE JOBS! An unpublicized multi-trillion dollar peril, so far little recognized by the White House and Congress, poses an even greater threat to our national security than a terrorist attack and can certainly cause far more extensive damage. A program to minimize the impact can create substantial business and economic opportunities.

NUCLEAR PLANTS POSE AN UNPUBLICIZED PERIL! Nuclear Plants have only two days of back-up power. Solar emissions are expected to provide as many as four outages lasting for weeks during this decade. Each plant can spew radiation once the backup power is no longer available.

Cost-competitive renewable energy systems are in the birth canal! A massive solar emission narrowly missed striking our geomagnetic field last month. Massive blackouts might have resulted. Minimizing the damage forecast, from such surprisingly probable events, can accelerate development of cost-competitive, decentralized, green energy.

A 5 Step Program - to Increase the Odds We Will Survive the Oil Disaster! A 5 Step Program is outlined that can help to minimize the unrecognized threat to most, if not all, of humanity that might result from a Tipping Point - an unstoppable feedback loop that appears possible as a result of the impact of the oil spill on Global Warming.

A HUMAN INVESTMENT TAX CREDIT PROGRAM The twin goals of a Human Investment Tax Credit (HITC) program are to generate 3 to 6 million additional jobs in the small business sector and encourage between 1 to 4 million men and women to become self-employed. It is timely as the minimum wage has just been raised. This program can prevent it from increasing unemployment!

PERPETUAL COMMOTION 6-23-09 Update Motors, or solid-state power generators without moving parts that continuously self-run, will not be, as is widely believed, perpetual motion machines. To the surprise of almost everybody, they will ultimately prove to be converting some previously unutilized form of energy.

Ten years to control Climate Change...or not. That is THE LIFE and DEATH QUESTION! The survival of ourselves, our children and grandchildren demands that we put arguments about climate change aside - and take a look at our most urgent problem, the effects of Carbon Dioxide - CO2 - on humans and animals on our planet.

Hydrinos: One Barrel of Water can Equal 1,000 Barrels of Oil! Abundant, clean, safe, inexpensive energy is now an urgent goal. Chava is poised to bring to market breakthrough solutions that will pioneer exciting new paths that can stimulate economic growth. When used to supply energy, Hydrogen is normally burned or used in a fuel cell. Randell Mills, a medical doctor with training in physics and engineering - as well as a competing scientist, the late Arie de Geus,found an alternative.

Jobs: A Practical Path to Overfull Employment A Human Investment Tax Credit program suggested a group of employment tax credits and provided research to support turning them into law. The 1977 job tax credit program, which reflected a few of the recommended incentives, generated 900,000 private-sector jobs, fully 20 percent of all new jobs created that year.

New Energy Source May Turn Cars into Cash Cows! A revolutionary breakthrough by Magnetic Power Inc., called GENIE- (Generating Electricity by Nondestructive Interference of Energy) promises to make possible the elimination of the need for batteries of every variety. GENIE generators are expected to replace the need to plug-in a plug-in hybrid.

PERPETUAL COMMOTION Magnetic machines that self-run are not, as is widely believed, perpetual motion machines. They are necessarily converting some form of energy. The likely candidate is Zero Point Energy, ZPE. But, in spite of that fact, most scientists familiar with the Zero Point Field, believe that conversion of ZPE is unlikely to prove practical. As magnetic conversion technologies move toward the marketplace, this deserves discussion.

Cars as Cash Cows! cash cow: Slang. A steady dependable source of income A revolutionary breakthrough by New technology promises to replace the need to plug-in a plug-in hybrid. Later, it may provide 100 kW systems that will fit in the space of a typical gas tank. Since no fuel or battery recharge is required, engines and fuel cells could become obsolete. Consumers may decide future cars must be electric, since they will never need fuel. If utilities cooperate, many cars might become cash cows!
