Solar Plant Sets Birds on Fire as They Fly Overhead

http://hardware.slashdot.org/story/14/08/20/0155235/solar-plant-sets-birds-on-fire-as-they-fly-overhead

: Federal investigators in California have requested that BrightSource — owner of thermal solar plants — halt the construction of more (and bigger) plants until their impact on wildlife has been further investigated. "Unlike many other solar plants, the Ivanpah plant does not generate energy using photovoltaic solar panels. Instead, it has more than 300,000 mirrors, each the size of a garage door. Together, they cover 1,416 hectares. Each mirror collects and reflects solar rays, focusing and concentrating solar energy from their entire surfaces upward onto three boiler towers, each looming up to 40 stories high. The solar energy heats the water inside the towers to produce steam, which turns turbines that generate enough electricity for 140,000 homes." The concentrated solar energy chars and incinerates the feathers of passing birds. BrightSource estimates about a thousand bird die this way every year, but an environmental group claims the real number is much higher.

An AP story at CBC reported:

: Federal wildlife investigators who visited BrightSource Energy's Ivanpah plant last year and watched as birds burned and fell, reporting an average of one "streamer" every two minutes, are urging California officials to halt the operator's application to build a still-bigger version.

When I told this story to my Dad, he told me of a story he was told when he was visiting a 64 M parabolic dish in Goldstone, California, one of three, globally, used to communicate with Voyager. He gave them an algorithm to synchronize the three so the operation went from requiring 120 people to run, to just two. While visiting their facility, they told him of a time when they turned on the array, which emits microwave radiation, and a flock of geese the happened to be flying nearby all dropped dead.

Petra Pane's perpetuator for an overbalanced wheel

'Free Energy Blog:2014:08:20'

Relevance: Directory:Gravity Motors

For what it's worth...

: From: Petra Pane

: Sent: Tuesday, August 19, 2014 5:16 PM

: Hi,

: I would like to share my perpetuator for an overbalanced wheel, with everyone building.

: http://gravitywheelperpetuator.com/

Quoting from the site:

PERPETUATOR

for use in a

Continually Overbalanced Wheel

Image:Petra-Pane perpetuator 600.gif

: This simple mechanism or device, is, I believe, sufficient if applied in the correct manner within a well thought-out machine, to lift or manipulate weights within an overbalanced wheel and bring order to their distribution & so allow for the continuity of movement.

: I have not personally constructed such an open & closing apparatus, neither the wheel to accept it, but I did spend between forty & forty-five thousand hours of extremely thorough investigations before I arrived at this actuators design which enabled me to ascertain that it has a very powerful use.

: Those who have been working diligently for a number of years on such a challenge as the overbalanced wheel ensures, will immediately recognise the advantage that this device brings them.

: If you feel you may be able to construct some successful design of overbalanced wheel & incorporate this perpetuator of mine, which is operated utilising wheel torque, then I wish you all the best. It is yours to use as you please.

: I sincerely believe that after the world's first overbalanced wheel arrives on the scene, the number & variety of wheels to come will be limited solely by our imaginations.

: Failures .... ........... eliminate.

: There is always hope for the builders of wheels! In designing & constructing various wheel mechanisms, a disappointing failure of thousands of hours can only be seen as a form of success, as it eliminates the need to repeat such experiments.

: Dear Sterling,

: Well, it's been 7 days since my last Update. I'd like to wish a warm welcome to all of the new people who signed up for this service during that time. If you are interested, you can find many of my previous Update Newsletters on the Newsletter Archive page of my website:

: Amazing Energy Technology

: Here's a quick story about a conventional energy solution that could be coming to a neighborhood near you soon! It's called the Solar Roadway and it really is an amazing idea. Take a look at this News Report from one of my local TV stations, right here in Spokane, Washington. http://www.krem.com/news/technology/Electric-Avenue-Next-step-to-solar-roadways--255424831.html

[Sterling's note: Actually, the specialist feedback is that this Solar Roadways idea would be extremely expensive and difficult to implement. That's why I've not covered it in our news. It would work, but it would not be practical.]

: SIXTH 2014 Conference Release

: Today, we are releasing Mark McKay's conference presentation titled 'The Real History of the Ed Gray Motor, Part 2'. This is Mark's second installment of accurate, historical information regarding the Ed Gray technology. Here's how this developed. In early February of 2014, I got a phone call from George Durnford, an early supporter and investor in Evgray Enterprises, Inc. that I have kept in touch with over the years. George is actually the source of most of the high quality photographs of Gray's technology that I have had on my website for years.

: He told me he had found some old audio tapes in his attic that had information on them concerning the Ed Gray technology. As it turns out, the tapes were George interviewing Richard Hackenberger and a few others at Ed Gray's old facility in Van Nuys, California. I told him that that was awesome, that I was very interested in what was on the tapes, but that I was swamped with work and wouldn't have time to do anything with them for a while.

: I also told him that Mark McKay was really the archivist for this sort of revelation and that he would probably LOVE to talk to him about it. George knew Mark already because Mark had interviewed him extensively in the past about Gray's technology. So, George and Mark got together on the phone and George eventually sent Mark a written transcript of the audio taped interviews.

: The Real History of the Ed Gray Motor, Part 2:

: http://www.emediapress.com/go.php?offer=pesnetwork&pid=35

: For the first time ever, we finally have intimate details, in the voice of the Chief Engineer, about the power supplies for Ed Gray's motors and solid-state "camper lights." At one point, Hackenberger even says that the output of the power supply transformer looks like a "hay field", meaning thousands of high voltage "radiant spikes"! This is what we always thought, but now we know for sure.

: A lot more is covered in the 1 hour lecture, and to beef up the value, we are including a complete copy of Mark's illustrated lecture as an MP4 file, a PDF file which includes all of the images shown in the Power Point slides, and a copy of the audio taped transcripts for your own study purposes.

Why I'm holding back on cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin

'Free Energy Blog:2014:08:19'

Relevance: Donations

People keep recommending to me that I enable people to make donations via Bitcoin. I do plain on enabling that. Part of the reason I've not done it yet is technical. Haven't been able to wrap my head around what it is, how to accept it, how to use it.

Part of my mental reservation stems from what appears to me to be not far removed from a pyramid scheme or another balloon that is bound to pop. This was reinforced for me today in a promotion I started listening to from the Tea Party (who seemed oblivious to what appears to me to be a moral lapse). They were talking about how a dollar now could get a return of $400 or more. While that might appeal to someone motivated by money for money's sake alone, it doesn't appeal to me, where I want things to be sustainable.

I don't see a steady foundation based on a precious commodity that has intrinsic and consistent value.

Am I missing something?

August 20 update: HOAX

Quoting from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lq4upKL4R5s

(See YouTube description for full links.)

: I wanted this to be real. So bad. As of right now this does not pass the smell test to me. After a quick Google search on some of the information provided by the makers of the videos and the articles on the net I have come to my own conclusion that this was put out as a hoax by someone. Not sure who duped who but here is some information I came across.. Here is a list compiled from some of the folks at ATS and on other forums..

: 1. NEOSSat is a Canadian satellite.....not ISRO (Indian space agency). It was launched by ISRO at their state of the art Space Port.

: 2. ISRO does not have any probes making fly-bys of any asteroids.

: 3. No close up detailed photos of 101955 Bennu (aka 1999 RQ36) have ever been taken at this time.

: 4. The images we do have were done by ground radars here on Earth.

: 5. In the date that the video claims this satellite took these images of the asteroid, it was 160 million miles away.

Thanks to Thomas Buyea for bringing this to our attention. There's no doubt that there is a definite geometrical pyramid-shape structure on this asteroid with flat, shiny black surfaces, visible as it turns. Crazy stuff.

When it comes to visiting asteroids, NASA doesn't pick run-of-the-mill space rocks. There appears to be a massive alien pyramid type structure on the surface of asteroid 1999 RQ36. You can see two other rectangle structures on it as well. The images and resultant video were taken from the NEAR spacecraft at a distance of 127 miles, March 3, 2000. (YouTube July 5, 2014)

Today's guest: Mike Rigby

'Free Energy Blog:2014:08:19'

Relevance: Radio > Free Energy Quest

Recording >>> YouTube | mp3

I'm pleased to announce that my guest today from 4-5 pm MDT [GMT-6] on the Rense Radio Network will be my long-time friend and hero, Mike Rigby, who married my cousin, Valerie Allan about a decade ago.

Mike recently was helping Directory:Welton Myers, who got me started in free energy.

June 17, 2014 - Welton Myers of Alternative Energy Systems - He's the guy who got me started in free energy 12 years ago. Now he's involved in an HHO tech based on Directory: Hydrogen Hog by Future Energy Concepts, Inc.' work (they replicated it) as well as the QEG and off-grid living with political action and renewable growing. >>> [Listen mp3]

Mike is no longer involved with Welton, given how difficult Welton is to work with. But he does have some great technologies he's involved with -- but can't talk publicly about. Back in 2002, we published a page about Mike's Hydrogen generator.

http://www.freeenergynews.com/Directory/Hydrogen/MikeRigby/Hydrogen_Gen.gif

As I was talking to Mike this morning, I remembered that it was Mike who got me started on the web in ~1998, when I commenced http://GreaterThings.com, which is where my free energy news launched from in 2002.

Mike has been a major influence for waking people up and getting them to seek greater light and knowledge, and to walk in higher paths. For years, he ran a bookstore, MAP, in Payson, Utah, where the "remnant" types would hang out and get great material to expand their minds. In around 1993, he was responsible for posting a full-page ad in the Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News announcing that angels still administer to people, and God still appears to people, and that these and other spiritual gifts are available to everyone. Cheri's mother, Susan, was one of about 50 people who signed that document. The LDS Church then went on a witch hunt and excommunicated everyone who had signed that document.

Perhaps what really got to the LDS Church was Mike's publication of what was called the "White Book", which was a collection of Book of Mormon like scriptures received through channeling / revelation. It was presented as part of the "greater things" that are promised to come forth to those who receive that which has already been given. I enjoyed them.

One of the most popular books in Mike's bookstore, beside the White Book, was Life in the World Unseen about near death experiences. He has been on numerous radio programs talking about that concept, and that will be the main topic of our interview today.

You can see why Mike and I get along.

DEWO - Directed Energy Warfare Office (vs. We the People)
Image:Directed-Energy-Warfare-Office 400.jpg

'Free Energy Blog:2014:08:18'

Relevance: Directory:Conspiracy / Directory:U.S. Government and Energy > Directory:Weaponization of Free Energy

EastGhost brought this one to our attention:

http://www.scribd.com/doc/147327093/DEWO-Directed-Energy-Warfare-Office-US-Navy - an open publication at scribd of a military document

A few remarks.

With such a focus of the military to use energy to kill, and wanting to have control over the best energy modalities for that purpose, you can see why they've been putting "national security" blocks on so many energy solutions arising from within the U.S. that get submitted to the patent office, only to be slapped with a gag / "cease and desist or else" order.

You can also see why the angles might be holding back the emergence of so many of these exotic free energy solutions -- not wanting them to get into the hands of a war-mongering planet that it is at present.

I was called by a military whistleblower the other day, who was part of a energy scouting program to try and find renewable energy solutions that would enable a "fuel-free" military. His remark was that while they ostensibly were looking for such solutions, the unofficial comments between high-ranking officers was that they already have such technologies, and are just wanting to develop tactical plans for implementing it. Any sincere attempts to locate such energy solutions were quenched.

I've been wanting to write an article about this, as kind of a heads up.

So my rejoinder to the angels would be: "Hey, the military already has this stuff. How about leveling the playing field by allowing its roll-out to peaceful citizens."

As you can see in Ferguson, Missouri, the dark portion of the government is just itching to have a reason to declare martial law and as documented so well over the years by Infowars, the corrupted government has been training the police that the biggest threat to America (which they have turned into a tyranny) will come from returning vets, sovereign citizens, and other patriots. No duh. They have sworn an oath to uphold the Constitution from all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC, and they will stand in defiance of tyranny, as their sworn duty. That's why Obama is trying to disarm America. He's the biggest tyrant, and the citizens have a moral duty to remove him from office peacefully through impeachment, if possible.

Regarding the burgeoning police state, Infowars reported today that while the mainstream press is repeating the lies fed to them on the ground by the police in Ferguson, MO, saying that no tear gas is being used Infowars reporters were up close where the tear gas was being released, and have footage proving it, from their personal response to the tear gas. Reporter, Sgt. Joe Biggs, decried the use of teargas, saying that the military is not able to use it outside the U.S. because of its danger, yet here our police are using it on citizens.

Over the past several days, the Infowars reporters have been showing a scene in which the police force is acting more like the instigator, provoking. On the first day, the police were commanded to stand down as looting got started, to give further grounds for increasing the police state measures, similar to how Roosevelt allowed Pearl Harbor in order to get the American's to get into the war. It's primarily people from out of town, agent provocateurs, who are stirring things up and being violent.

It's propaganda with an agenda to launch a police state. They're itching for it, they want it bad.

Proof: Illegal Aliens Have it Better Than You

'Free Energy Blog:2014:08:16'

Relevance: Directory:Conspiracy

Lee Ann McAdoo of Infowars Nightly News gives a stunning list of ways that illegal aliens are treated better than U.S. citizens.

While Infowars gives a lot of evidence along these lines, I think they don't go far enough in articulating what is going on here. President Obama's agenda is to destroy free America. As a hard-core, anti-God, Communist (not by word, but by action) who has infiltrated into the highest office, he repeatedly does things to undermine this country -- because we as a people have sown wickedness that leads to this captivity, aka Tyranny. We've brought this upon ourselves, and the only way to turn it away is to turn back to God with a broken heart and contrite spirit and have a mighty change of heart as a people. Then we'll deserve freedom once again -- and free energy, which is all about freedom. [Relevance to FE]

Opening our borders to allow anyone in, including criminals and terrorists, and to get a pass of special treatment, is about as severe an act of treason as can be imagined though he's got a list of 100 impeachable offenses, some of which come pretty close to this in their severity. <pesn type= http://www.impeachobamacampaign.com/articlesofimpeachment/" str="[http://www.redflagnews.com/opinion/obamas-impeachable-offenses-updated-by-michael-connelly-jd-carrollton-tx"></pesn>

Wind farms paid record sum not to produce electricity

'Free Energy Blog:2014:08:16'

Relevance: Directory:Wind > Directory:Wind Farms

Thomas Buyea from Florida brought this story from the London Telegraph (August 12, 2014) to our attention.

Excerpt:

: 'Windy weather and low demand for electricity led to wind farm owners being paid a record amount to switch off turbines on Monday'

: Wind farms were paid a record sum of almost £3 million in a single day this week not to produce electricity.

: Strong winds amid the remnants of Hurricane Bertha left the electricity network unable to cope with the amount of energy being produced by turbines on Monday.

: As a result National Grid paid owners £2.8 million to shut down their wind farms, at up to double the rate they would have received in subsidies had they actually generated electricity.

: A further £1.1 million was given to other power stations to generate electricity to make up the shortfall created by shutting the wind farms down.

: The money - detailed in figures provided by National Grid - will ultimately be added on to household bills and paid for by consumers.
