New Energy Alternatives

A remarkable discovery has emerged in astrophysics: key properties of the universe have just the right values to make life possible. Most scientists prefer to explain away this uniqueness, insisting that a number of unseen universes must therefore exist, each randomly different. Astrophysicist Bernard Haisch joined George Knapp in the first half of the show to propose the alternative—that the special properties of our universe reflect an underlying intelligent consciousness.

In the second half of the program, veteran journalist Chris Taylor talked about how the Star Wars franchise has conquered our culture with a sense of lightness and exuberance, while remaining serious enough to influence politics, and spread a spirituality that appeals to religious groups and atheists alike.

New Energy Alternatives

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - August 31, 2004
Host: George Noory
Guests: Brian O'Leary, Jim Berkland

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 limitless energy in the vacuum of space. O'Leary envisions a day when people are disconnected from a centralized power grid and instead receive their energy from inexpensive handheld devices.

Quake Update

First hour guest, geologist Jim Berkland commented on a UCLA geologist's prediction that a 6.4 magnitude or greater earthquake would rock Southern California by September 5th. He said there is little confirmation that such a quake will take place, though it has been reported that animals in the San Diego Zoo are acting strangely. Berkland believes quakes can be predicted by examining what he calls "local effects." These can include changes in the magnetic field (often signaled by missing pets), tidal forces, and anything else out of the ordinary, like young whales beaching themselves.
