Free Energy Up-date - October 29,
First of all,
it's been a while since the last Update, so first, I'd like to wish a warm
welcome to all of the new people who signed up for this service in the last
year. You can find all of my previous Update Newsletters on the Links page of

Moves In Uncertain Times
In this Update,
I'd like to focus on some practical ideas that can help position you to ride
out the coming economic downturn. With the PRICES of stocks, commodities, oil,
gasoline, gold, and currencies all fluctuating wildly in the last three months,
it's a good time to look at the real VALUE of these things in our lives.
Everybody is looking to invest their hard earned money in something that will
maintain its value in these volatile times. My suggestion is that you consider
investments in hard assets, like gold, silver, food, seeds, your home, your
vehicles, your education, and your friendships!
IBoth gold and silver
are down from their recent highs, so they could be considered a "good deal" at
this time (as of October 29, 2008). Any asset that you think you have, but is
actually being managed by someone else, like your 401K, has probably lost value
in the last three months. It may seem horrifying to think of selling this at a
"loss" right now, but it's really about bringing all of your real assets under
your own, direct control again. If you invest in gold and silver coins, you
will have the value of your assets in your own, personal possession. If the
economic situation stabilizes, you can re-invest in stocks and real estate at
bargain basement prices. If the situation deteriorates further, your gold and
silver coins can act as real money. So, either way, you can't lose.
same goes for investments like filling your pantry with staple foods, storing
seeds, and making your vehicles as reliable and fuel efficient as you can.
Money spent in these ways allows you to provide yourself with a safety net in
case the government defaults on YOU just when you need it most.
suggest that you invest in making your home more energy efficient. This is
especially the case if you already own your home with no mortgage. But these
are still good ideas even if you have a mortgage. Don't worry about "return on
investment" as much as just "lowering your energy needs" as quickly as
possible. If the currency goes bad, the PRICE of everything will go up and the
availability of everything will go down. The idea is to get by on more of what
is free and on less of what costs money!
Low Cost Lighting Options
Updates, I have talked quite a bit about insulation and heat management ideas.
Today, I want to talk about Lighting Ideas.
Obviously, the SUN provides
free light during the day outside, but what about in your house? Skylights and
Light pipes are the answer. Learn as much as you can about this technology and
install these devices in hallways and interior rooms without windows. The
following link is a great tutorial on the subject:
Once you have provided yourself with as much Free Light as you can,
the next job is to replace the rest of your lighting systems with the most
energy efficient technologies available today. I've already talked about
switching to Compact Fluorescent Lights and the new bright white LEDs, but here
is a new product with a twist. It's called the "After-Lite" and it combines the
efficiency of a CFL with one of the new long-lasting after-glow phosphors.
After lighting a room in the evening, the bulb continues to glow a soft green
for hours after the power is turned off. For hallways, children's rooms, and
bathrooms, or anywhere you might use a nightlight, this could be a great idea.
Check out these links for more info:
even a company in Wisconsin that has found a way to make the "after-glow"
phosphors glow all by themselves, for 12 YEARS!!! They are not on the market
yet, but "free light" may be right around the corner. They have even mated
their self-glowing material with some solar cells, to make free electric power
in small amounts. I'll be keeping an eye on this company and reporting any
news. In the meantime, check out their progress at:
Power Saving Appliances
If you want to
save up to 100% of the energy it takes to dry your clothes, you can still hang
them on a clothes line. (LOL) Of course, it's boring and time consuming, but it
can save energy. If this seems like a radical idea, you can still save 50% of
the energy it takes to dry your clothes using this new technology. It's called
the Hydronic Clothes Drier and it dries clothes.......with water! Well,
actually, it uses a heat exchanger and a special fluid (they started with
water) to dry your clothes 41% faster and eliminate all possibility of a dryer
flue fire. It's awesome, and it's available right now. Check it out at this
here is another "obvious" idea that should have been available since the Stone
Age. It's called the Green Switch. Simply put, it's a way to turn off ALL
unnecessary appliances and lights in the house with just ONE SWITCH, as you
leave! Duh....you might think Homer Simpson could have invented it! Anyway,
it's finally available and can definitely save some energy by eliminating
energy WASTE. Here's the link:
many of you know, I have been involved in Free Energy
Research for 35 years. I am a firm believer in the reality
of advanced technologies and their potential to transform
this world for the better. But two and half years ago,
I started to promote energy conservation, and the idea
of not waiting any longer for the advanced technologies
to appear. More and more I am promoting "whatever" is
available that is better than what you currently have,
switching to "low tech" solutions that are cheap and
maintenance-free, and radical conservation, which is
nothing more than a conscious refusal to waste resources!
