Last Show Recap

New Energy Alternatives

Lisa Garr (email) was joined by authority on fungi, Paul Stamets, who talked about his discovery on how to use mushrooms to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants, catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds, as well as control insect populations, and generally enhance the health of our forests, gardens and bodies.

First hour guest, Dr. Marilyn Wedge, family therapist and ADHD expert, discussed how powerful stimulant drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed to treat childhood hyperactivity but rarely help.

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.
