What It Would Really Take to Reverse Climate Change
Posted on Sunday, December 14, 2014 @ 13:37:59 EST by vlad

A must read article from the IEEE Spectrum site (same conclusion I reached when I started this site almost 14 years ago/Vlad): Today’s renewable energy technologies won’t save us. So what will? / By Ross Koningstein & David Fork

"...We’re glad that Google tried something ambitious with the RE-C initiative, and we’re proud to have been part of the project. But with 20/20 hindsight, we see that it didn’t go far enough, and that truly disruptive technologies are what our planet needs. To reverse climate change, our society requires something beyond today’s renewable energy technologies. Fortunately, new discoveries are changing the way we think about physics, nanotechnology, and biology all the time. While humanity is currently on a trajectory to severe climate change, this disaster can be averted if researchers aim for goals that seem nearly impossible..."

Google cofounder Larry Page is fond of saying that if you choose a harder problem to tackle, you’ll have less competition. This business philosophy has clearly worked out well for the company and led to some remarkably successful “moon shot” projects: a translation engine that knows 80 languages, self-driving cars, and the wearable computer system Google Glass, to name just a few...

I got this from Mark Goldes ( AESOP Institute [www.aesopinstitute.org]) as a comment to this article I've posted on FB: Tesla Roadster nearly doubles miles with upgrade [www.cnbc.com]


Tesla could produce cars with unlimited range, needing no external recharge. With revolutionary new technology, these cars will be able to power homes and businesses, as well as sell power to utilities when parked, eventually paying for themselves.

These astonishing automobiles would catalyze needed changes in the energy industry, with extraordinary implications for slowing climate change.

The Tesla Model S received the highest marks ever from the largest Consumer rating organization. More than 90% of buyers have said they would purchase one again.

Many car parts, including bodies can now be 3-D printed. For an example, view the beautiful prototype URBEE. See: URBEE.net [korecologic.com] 3-D printing may allow inexpensive repairs. It can also be used to manufacture newly invented hybrid engines that need no fuel.

Tesla is currently planning their Model 3. Aimed at a larger market, the car will be smaller and cost less. Given the lead-time in the auto industry, much of the Model 3 design is already frozen.

Climate change contains a large inertial component. The goal of many scientists has been to attempt to confine the rise in temperature to 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit). Inertia already locks-in a rise of 1.5 degrees C. We may have only 10 years to avoid the 2 degree C rise that would make the entire planet increasingly unlivable for humans.

Existing energy technologies cannot solve this dilemma. They are inherently unable to create the changes needed, in time, at acceptable cost. Inventors across the planet have been seeking breakthroughs that would make a solution possible.

Many suffer inventor's delusion. A small number are promoting scams. Almost all are inadequately funded.

The handful of technology breakthroughs that can make a difference reflect new science. They are not yet generally accepted by the scientific community.

Among the most promising examples are 4 fuel-free engines by AESOP. They include a pair of piston engines, a turboshaft engine, and a jet engine.

All are designed to run on atmospheric heat. First suggested by Nikola Tesla in 1900, two years later Jacob Wainwright, an unsung civil engineer, began delivering papers indicating how fuel could be replaced 24/7 by atmospheric heat. This huge reservoir of solar energy far exceeds all of the fossil fuels.

Ken Rauen, the inventor of the four new engines, proved the science in an engine he patented a decade ago. But, it was not commercially viable. The Wainwright papers provided the missing insight. (See: SECOND LAW SURPRISES, under MORE, on the AESOP Institute website).

To prove practicality, these engines need to be prototyped. They can be produced inexpensively, at any scale, using 3-D printing. The fuel-free turboshaft engine appears an excellent candidate for keeping electric car batteries charged.

The SunCell by BlackLight Power Inc. is another candidate. See: blacklightpower.com [www.blacklightpower.com]

Large Prototypes have been demonstrated. Funding is abundant. The CEO claims a generator the size of a wallet (coupled with an inverter) will provide the power needed for an automobile. However, the company suffers from 20+ years of unfulfilled promises. The science is usually dismissed.

Were Elon Musk to assign a small team of his best, open-minded, engineers, to evaluate these - and a number of similar inventions - without delay, he would almost certainly discover that Tesla can produce cars that need no external recharge, and in fact, can become mobile power plants.

Electric cars using Vehicle to Grid (V2G) systems are already demonstrating they can provide power to the grid. That capability is being proved by a fleet of 40 cars at Los Angeles Air Force Base. Selling substantial power to utilities opens a potential economic bonanza – cars that eventually pay for themselves.

A few months after Pearl Harbor was attacked, a four-engine B-24 bomber rolled off the assembly line at Willow Run, every hour around the clock.

When cars become power plants, market demand for vehicles with unlimited range and the ability to sell electricity, will justify similar round the clock production. This can take place at locally owned factories all across the planet.

Given the vulnerability of the grid to terrorist attack or solar flares, decentralized energy, such as these cars will provide, is becoming a National Security issue.

Tesla has a unique opportunity to open doors to huge new markets. Imagine the important implications for the planet.
