Last Show Recap

Tesla and Energy

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

Tesla and Energy

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - July 23, 2003
Host: George Noory
Guests: Michael Brown

Alternative energy expert Mike Brown appeared on Wednesday's program, delving into Tesla, inventions and power sources. The Tesla brain fascinates me, Brown said. Tesla, who held over 700 patents, was probably the smartest man of the 20th Century, he opined. In constructing some of his projects, Brown said he attempts to place himself into Tesla's mindset.

He discussed his recent creation of a tabletop model of a Tesla System which pulls lightning out of the sky, using it to charge a capacitor, and then extracting the energy for electric power. The Earth is actually a giant capacitor. In fact, "the whole planet is charged with electricity," Brown said. More on his device is detailed here.

Interestingly, Brown is not a proponent of hydrogen, which he believes is being pushed to divert attention away from a more practical fuel source-- farm products. He said the huge bounty of American agriculture's soy and corn could be processed to make enough fuel to free the US from dependence on foreign oil in a short space of time, if such a project was embarked on as national imperative.
