Over the past twenty years, Dr. Brian O'Leary has researched, lectured and written extensively about new paradigms of science and global transformation. His most recent book Re-Inheriting the Earth describes how we can lift out of ourselves out of our current path of global destruction. Much of his work is based on extensive international travels to some of the best and brightest researchers of new science, new medicine and "free" energy.
Dr. O'Leary has published internationally ten trade books on the frontiers of science, space, energy and culture, with sales averaging over 10,000 copies per book. He was a NASA scientist-astronaut, assistant professor of astronomy at Cornell University alongside Carl Sagan, and has also taught Physics for Poets and Princeton University and technology assessment at the University of California Berkeley School of Law and Hampshire College. He has published over 100 technical papers in the peer reviewed scientific literature and another 100 popular magazine and Op-Ed pieces worldwide. He has appeared frequently on American national television and radio, including the Today Show, Larry King Live, the Donahue Show, Fox Television and the Art Bell Show.(C.V.)
A passionate environmentalist open to innovative solutions, Dr. O'Leary was special consultant to the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment, wrote speeches and was senior advisor to environmental presidential candidate Morris Udall. He also helped presidential candidates George McGovern, Walter Mondale and Jesse Jackson on economic policies to convert from polluting and military activities to green initiatives.
He is currently on the faculty of the University of Philosophical Research in Los Angeles, teaching in the Masters program in Transformational Psychology. He is cofounding President of a new activist group The New Energy Movement. He has recently completed the Sivananda Yoga Teachers Training Course and lectures widely at their ashrams and centers throughout the world. He is co-founder of the International Association of New Science and advisor to Dennis Weaver's Institute of Ecolonomics.
Former astronaut and scientist Brian O'Leary, founder of the New Energy Movement, discussed the research and development going into solving the global energy crisis, and reasons we need to move immediately towards "new energy."According to O'Leary, the world's oil fields are at maximum production levels and can barely keep up with demand. He predicts "in another 40 or 50 years there won't be any oil left." O'Leary suggested an active suppression by the "Powers That Be" has kept the world's economy tied to fossil fuels, despite the fact that many possibilities exist for alternative energy sources.O'Leary believes the future of energy rests on several new technologies, including zero point devices, advanced hydrogen chemistry, and cold fusion. He said low energy nuclear reactions (cold fusion) make it theoretically possible to drive a car across the United States on a liter of water. Perhaps even more promising is zero point energy, which involves tapping into the seemingly limit ... More »Host: George Noory
Physicist, scientist, and author, Brian Oâ€™Leary (brianoleary.com) appeared on Monday night. A former astronaut, who might have at one time gone to Mars if such missions weren't scrapped, now believes "we have so many problems; we have to focus here on Earth." To put forth sustainable solutions to our global dilemmas, O'Leary said he started an organization called New Energy Movement, which seeks to promote innovative energy technologies. Our current energy system is both antiquated and destructive, he said. "I call it the electric jail." Further, "America has become distracted," from this issue, but "physical challenges demand physical answers," he stated. Because there are so many possibilities for alternative energy sources, in addition to hydrogen and solar, O'Leary believes there should be a huge emphasis on research and development. Then, he said there could be public debate on which choices would be the most preferable. Some of the technologies he mentioned included Z ... More »Host: George Noory
