Full of conspiracy theories and fringe science, was this meant for engineers and scientists or investigators of the paranormal?  Is this the kind of material IEEE gives PDH credit for?

Iron

All the data provided is very useful!

Iron

Thanks Jon, Ann and Digi-Key.

Iron

Thanks Jon for the exellent Presentation.

Iron

Hello from Gold River.

Iron

Space program.

By product which may benefit people

AC should be higher then DC

Perfect - thank you! This week was absolutely wonderful, and I am very thankful for you making it available!

Iron

Jon,

 

Great lecture covered all the bases from passive active eveen Stabler Wronski Effect.

 

 

Iron

Look down further on page under archived

 

Iron

Are the audios archived and available somewhere? My player would not load - so i missed all the audio & discussion.  Thanx, Steve

Hello from Gold River.

Iron

Very interesting subject.

Thank you.

Always entertaining.

Iron

Youe welcome 78RPM.

 

Thanks Jon

If there are any questions I missed, please chime in now and I will answer them if i can. Thanks -- Jon

Iron

Thanks for that web site Joe_S

?? Are there "digester" unit available in the market which can be installed on a dairy farm or for similar operations?

I have not seen any comercial units but I'm sure someone manufactures them. I have worked with local groups to prototype digesters. There are plans online for many designs.

 

Iron

?? Jon, Do you have a web sirte or point of contact on the web?

Iron

Answer to question 1 -- burning wood and forrest by products release mercury. This is speculated to be from generations of coal burning which releases mercury into the air, and rains down on trees which absorb it.

 

In present day, aluminum levels are skyrocketing for some reason, and this is killing trees and wildlife.

Many trees are seeding early because they think they are dying and it is thought that aluminum is the cause.

 

Iron

I prefer fringes on my cowboy shirts -- but perhaps there are times when it is beneficial to let the mind wander...

Iron

Thanks Jon and sponsors, very motivational lectures.

Iron

There is a good essay on Nicola Tesla that really slams Edison who was not the innovator most school kids have been taught. http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla

Gold

For those who are intersed in the fringe, I find this free publication a great read.  It's a great compendium of all things from the fringe. it includes much of what was covered here and so much more.

Enjoy

 

 

Iron

? Jon, Do you have any plans to write about the work done by people like Eugee Mallove?

Excelent Lecture! Thanks

 

I don't myself. There are other novelists and authors who can probably do a good job with it.

There is a great dialogue in the movie "Chain Reaction" where Morgan Freeman explains why clean free energy can't be introduced to the public. I think it all boils down to money and control.

 

Iron

??But alas, even humans have a carbon foot print...

 

some more than others, especially in the bean belt.

 

Iron

Thank you very much, have a great weekend!

Iron

??I recall a documentary from Brazil converting trash into energy, I wonder how can we know what harvesting method is the most profitable for a certain location ?

 

I think every situation is similar but different. If there is enough steady flow of trash, it could be a usable source of energy if done cleanly and responsibly.

 

Brazil has a bounty of sugar cane used to produce ethanol and is mostly energy independant in a renewable way. Unfortunatly, we all can't grow sugar cane. If we did, the world would be a sweeter place. (and no high fructose corn syrup)!!!

 

Iron

But alas, even humans have a carbon foot print...

Iron

????  Thank you for the nice lecture series.  One source of energy, which we should harness is human energy.  What do you think of human powered devices to genrate power/charge batteries etc? Do we have devices/machine, which can be used easily to generate energy? Thx.

 

I always thought that if we could harness the energy that kids have, we could light all our cities.


It's a slippery slope though to use human energy as a source of power. Maybe in a gym, the machines can offer resistance by generating electricity for the facility.

Iron

?? You mentioned experimenting with technology to enhance and/or rejuvinate lead acid bateries/gel cells.  

?? can you provide sources for this inforamtion?

 

Reserch 'John Bedini' and his work. As with many of these folks, they never show you overunity. They show you an interesting technology and infer overunity. I like the battery effects.

Answer to question 4 -- the valueable by product of cold fusion is helium 3, an isotope of helium that the nuclear industry wants to use in its next generation of reactors. It is very scarce here on earth.

Iron

Thanks, Some these might not power a city, but they might power a small eletronic device.

Iron

?Where can I find additional information on the fuel cells that generate electricity? Is there a website or book you can recommend? Thank you


Many of the comapnies that pioneered the technology are out of business, but there are others,

www.fuelcells.org/top_200.cgim  is a good place to start. A refined search with a search engine will lead you to some. I have even seen used ones on ebay.

Answer to question 2 --

??gsudhir, I wish I had not seen that video of Topsy the elephant. Ughhhh. Horrible.

I know, it's sad. He also electrocuted dogs to show that ac is dangerous. truth is, dc is more dangerous.

Iron

Thanks Jon that was very interesting about other ideas on alternative energy technologies.

Iron

Jon are you in LinkedIn ?

Iron

??What do you think of the backyard biodiesel cookers?  Would you encourage this level of do-it-yourself energy independance?

 

They work but can be dirty, smelly, and take time to do the titration process, the wash process, and the extraction process. They also require a good source of anahydrouse methane which should be stored in a concrete block building. But, if you have the source of vegetable oil, it works, and the process can be automated somewhat.

 

 

Iron

Very good,  brotherinlaw has solar panel panels with batteries and inverter, batteries were from a utility,ity, and if he can get more power from those batteries is a plus.

Iron

gsudhir, I wish I had not seen that video of Topsy the elephant. Ughhhh. Horrible.

The energy may be free but harnessing it has a cost...

You just need to watch "Murdoch Mysteries" TV Series to see the Edison/Tesla debate.

Iron

electrocution of animals in public square. that's what edison did

Iron

how about electrocution which became the electric chair!

Iron

Electrocute an elephant.

Iron

Elecrocution of animals using AC is what Edison used.

Gold

he shocked an elephant to death

Iron

He electrocuted animals

Trees, limbs, and branches generate CO2

 

Iron

There's not Fuel Cells that convert fosile combustible in electricity?

I remember read it in a old Physics book.

Iron

Bob985, you are correct. Pure methane has almost no odor. It might have smell if it has sulphur compounds in it. Home natural gas has an additive so we can detect leaks.

Gold

Branches release a lot of CO2.

Iron

the audio is working fine here in Maine

Iron

Audio is just pitiful. I will keep trying for a couple more time and if it does not get better, I will follow the recording....

Iron

Actually, I believe methane has no odor. A material is added to natural gas so that leaks can be detected.

Gold

Hello, from Bremen,Gr

Iron

I was just about to say I haven't had problems, when my audio dropped for about 5 secs

Iron

Jon's question was: Forest waste, such as trees, limbs, and branches, are typically used as fuel for biomass systems. What toxins does this release?


Blogger

Land fill is anaerobic -- I don't think there is much decomposition of anythig in a landfill -- paper, cornstalks, tacos or beans, not to mention bread or whatever..

Iron

The audio keep dropping out.

 

Iron

Today my audio is the same.

Iron

Audio today is pretty interruptive....

Why won't the webinar start on its own or give us a warning that is about to start?

Morning from Portland Oregon

Iron

?? Jon, Can you discuss underwater turbines? See http://science.howstuffworks.com/moon-generate-electricity1.htm

Our electric coop gets some of its power from a dam. There a big political fights between the coop and environmentalists. It seems that replacing dams with underwater turbines can solve the problems.
