    ***** Congress Watch: Democrats push for new energy agency *****
    Posted on Saturday, January 28, 2006 @ 14:55:53 GMT by vlad

    Legal Posted 1/27/06 on USNews.com By Danielle Knight: Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a New York Democrat, have introduced legislation that would create a new agency within the U.S. Department of Energy modeled after the Department of Defense's research agency, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The bill would authorize a total of $9 billion in funding for fiscal years 2007 through 2011 for the new agency to develop research to quickly move "cutting edge" energy-efficiency technologies into the marketplace.

    "We should immediately undertake an Apollo-like R&D program to rapidly transform our country's energy use," Reid said. The bill is part of the Democrats' larger energy plan that aims to reduce U.S. dependence on foreign oil and other expensive fuel. Staff members in Senator Clinton's office said it was too soon to tell if this proposal would gain widespread support. Republican and Democratic staffers in other members' offices told U.S. News that they were reviewing the details.

    Democratic staffers pointed out that the creation of such a Department of Energy agency was recommended in a report by the National Academy of Sciences in October. The report had concluded that America's pre-eminence in science and technology is in decline, putting U.S. economic competitiveness at risk.

    Note: Now is the time for making the congress aware of extremely "cutting edge" research in energy and propulsion systems that need serious examination and support, if proven valid. The question is: how can we effectively get to them? (Dr. Greer, Brian O'Leary, etc.?)

    Good thing, but not really any reason why it can't be incorporated as part of DARPA.  DARPA is about security of the US and energy security is critical to the defense of the US.

    This may be a once in a life time opportunity to effect how future generations live on this planet. I suggest everyone who is capable, to e-mail and write Harry Reid and Hillary Clinton and suggest companies that you think should be funded. My choice would be:

    EPS(Electron Power Systems)
    Focus Fusion
    Magnetic Power Inc.

    With research also going to advanced solar power systems i.e. paint on solar cells and nanotech.

    You have to make sure that you really want the Federal government involved in your company/project.  There are always strings attached in exchange for "receiving a benefit" from the government.  You may loose control of your invention or have it suppressed.  Very risky to believe that they are working for your best interest...

    The timing of this legislation is more likely a reaction to the government seeing that people are taking the lead in making new energy devices and the government is afraid that one of these will make it out.  So in reaction they want to make another entire agency that will find out who is making these devices and stop them by pretending to be their friend.  If the government really was interested in helping, they would have taken steps to help and done it much sooner instead of fight wars for the petro dollar first.

    I am in the ballpark with you folks:  we don't need a strangling chooser here.  Rather, cop to the unlevel playing field.  This great nation elected a Texas oil yahoo.  What do people expect???   ALBERSAWA  PS- I worked with Dr. Stanton Glantz on a project at Stanford studying DOD research.  Search for Stanford Magazine and look up Glantz;  "Tilting At Tobacco".

    I just wrote Hillary a letter telling her what I believe should be done about the energy crisis. I suggest everyone who is concerned about the future of the USA and the world write to both Hillary and Harry and tell them what you think about their proposals as well as suggestions.


    Recently you and a fellow democrat, Harry Reid, decided to come up with a
    new energy department modelled after the DoD's DARPA. This is an idea I believe is long overdue, however it is better late then never. I applaud you and Harry for coming up with a potential solution to one of the largest problems facing not just America, but the entire world, that being ENERGY!

    Having said that, it is very important that you make this new organization as transparent as possible, with very few strings attached to funding i.e. NO MARCH IN RIGHTS!

    You probably know this, but many in the current administration have links to oil interests, and they have no desire to see America get off oil in the forseeable future(despite what they may say). This administation's "Hydrogen Program" is also a sham, considering that Hydrogen is a energy carrier, not an energy source! You still have to burn fossil fuels to create the hydrogen and attempting to use solar power is absurd, when you could just convert it into electricity and run your cars on that with newer battery technology! So I suggest your new organization steer clear of this debacle of Hydrogen and invest in ideas that have real promise to change the future.

    Here is a quick rundown of some of the companies(some non-profit, some for profit):

    EPS(Electron Power Systems) has an innovative technology based on the work of the work of Clint Seward that has been in development for many years, that is based on the new physics of "ball-lighting" or as he calls them plasma toriods. Not only does his technology have the potential to be used as a sort of plasma battery, but also in a micro-fusion device that could be used to power a home or a car for a year on common elements like hydrogen and boron.

    Focusfusion.org is another company that has the potential to change the energy "game". Their technology is very similar to EPS, but they use a sort of plasma pinch that can achieve temperatures of 1 Billion degrees, hot enough to fuse boron! A device the size of a garage could provide 20+ megawatts of energy!

    Magnetic Power Inc. and it's sister company Ultraconductor's have technology that blow the mind of most people, those being a room temperature superconductor and a ZPE(Zero-point energy) device. Many skeptics would say that both of these are impossible, however the companies superconductors have been give 3 SBIR contracts from the DoD and has been replicated in numorous labs. All they require is a couple million to get their devices up on the market!

    Inaddition to the three above there are many, many other companies that have very promising energy technologies aswell. I believe it would be in your new energy departments best interests to fund some of these more "bleeding" edge proposals and not just focus on hydrogen fuel cells and biofuel.

    I sincerly hope you remember this as there is an enormous community attempting to figure out the energy problem, but without proper funding many of these brillant ideas will be wasted!


    BTW, Good luck in 2008!

    I would like to point out a follow up article that may be of interest to people wanting to know more about the ARPA-E bill.

    You might tell Hillary that if she would open up Gull bay in Alaska, it has an oil field larger than Saudi Arabia.  It would bring gas prices back under $1.50 a gallon.  We would not have to import any oil, giving more time for other energy devices to come online.
