Mark Goldes is Founder and CEO of AESOP Institute in Sebastopol, CA. He is also Co-founder of Chava Energy and Chairman of Magnetic Power Inc. (MPI). Chava is acquiring assets of MPI. Earlier, he founded SunWind Ltd. He previously was CEO of a financial and economic consulting firm. Once a student of Electrical Engineering, he earned BA and MA degrees at San Francisco State University, and later served two years on active duty with the USAF, culminating as a Senior Director of the Berlin Corridor control radar in Germany. Afterwards, from 1956 thru 1958, he earned a second Master's degree and was a Fellow in the Graduate Program in the History of Ideas, at Brandeis University. In 1960, he founded Emerson College of the Monterey Peninsula, and later initiated the free university movement, which spread to at least 600 locations worldwide.

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.

Here are four little known ideas, any one of which would greatly help the economy and create jobs.
Together they are practical steps toward a peaceful transformation that would change more than might be imagined far faster than can be easily visualized.

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.

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. National Geographic News

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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
SHARE Sunday, January 6, 2008 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.

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!
