PULSE magazine debuts with first issue as premium

The Global Breakthrough Energy Movement (GlobalBEM) continues to power forward with a new magazine launch.

PULSE provides “an international platform, to publish their ideas about breakthrough energy solutions” gathering pieces by authors well known to the new energy community as well as works by authors new to the field.

Created as “a frontier science publication”, the editors are “promoters of factual, measurable and tangible innovations in the field of ambient energies.”

While magazines have a tough time surviving in the digital age, there are still markets for portable, dense, information and images in the form material atoms. Eugene Mallove was the driving force behind Infinite Energy Magazine, and now, a new generation takes up the mantle of media promotion.

GlobalBEM formed to organize Breakthrough Energy Conference in Hilversum, Holland last November 2012, an event that gathered a who’s who of new-energy icons, including maverick thinkers from the economics and art world. Cold Fusion Radio’s James Martinez also attended, presenting a talk dedicated to the memory of Russell Means.

This year, GlobalBEM is scheduling its three-day symposium October 10-12 at the University of Boulder in Colorado, U.S. Scheduled to present are scientists, technologists, artists, activists, historians, and economists who work to develop revolutionary energy technology. Cold Fusion Now and Cold Fusion Radio will represent with talks by Ruby Carat and James Martinez.

But your help is needed to bring this community together. From GlobalBEM:

“With the help of private Dutch investors we were able to make the 2012 conference happen. This time we want to ask YOU to get involved in crowdfunding our campaign on Indiegogo.”

This campaign’s purpose is to help us raise a total of $30,000. Which will cover the travel and hotel expenses for our panel of speakers and core team. We can’t make this conference happen and bring this wealth of information to the world without your help.

“IT’S BREAKTHROUGH TIME!”

PULSE-1-interiorThis new quarterly publication “contains over 50 editorial pages on all things Breakthrough Energy. We have reports on current developments, background stories and the personal opinions of experts in the field.

Dr Turtur tells us about his findings on zero point energy, Michael Tellinger shares his fascinating research into an ancient civilization and their breakthrough energy. Sterling Allan, Andrew Johnson, Professor Ilija Lakicevic and many others contributed to make PULSE a must-read for everyone.

Take a look at selected portions of Issue #1 here.

Writers are encouraged to submit their work for publication, and your subscription to PULSE will help fund the Breakthrough Energy Movement.

    Introduction
    .
    This Letter has been sent to all U.S. NRC Plant Program Managers, U.S. Nuclear Plant Operators, Organizers of the THE 15th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENVIRONMENTAL REMEDIATION AND RADIOACTIVE WASTE MANAGEMENT, and all U.S. Citizen Anti Nuclear Groups and International Nuclear Watchdog Organizations.

    An important technology has come to maturity out of the Naval SPAWAR Laboratories. The technology is a low energy nuclear reaction. Popularly known as cold fusion i.e. the Fleischman Pons Effect – FPE. This technology transmutes spent nuclear fuel rods to less harmful elements while creating enough excess heat to produce mega watts of electricity. Holding a license to utilize advanced engineering of this LENR technology, the Global Energy Corporation offers the GeNie Reactor. A HYBRID FUSION FAST FISSION REACTOR (patent). Developed under contract No. DE-AC52-06NA25946 with the US Department of Energy – DEF and the Department of Defense.
    .
    At a Global Energy Corporation presentation to the Guam Power Authority, GEC president Jay Wook Khim offered to pay, in full, the 250 million dollar cost to construct the first 50MW GeNie Reactor and provide Guam with electricity at half the cost. According to the dates on the document, Fitial and Buckingham signed off on the nuclear energy document around the time GEC scientists and officials, including CEO Dr. Jay W. Khim, visited Saipan during June of 2012. For many reasons this deal stalled, two of them being that the governor of Guam was impeached, the other being that Guam has no spent nuclear fuel rods, therefore the new governor is hesitant to bring fresh uranium onto the island to fuel the GeNie Reactor, as proposed by GEC.

    I think this U.S. LENR energy technology is more important to the existing nuclear industry, with our spent fuel rod storage concerns, than to the people of Guam. It is important that every nuclear power plant, storing such nuclear waste, pursue it. This is a spent fuel rod risk reduction strategy that is profitable for you.
    .
    With this technology your spent fuel rods become a source of revenue instead of an ongoing expense and risk. Without the need for extensive processing, the spent fuel rods are placed around the GeNie LENR reactor core. The LENR reactor can be tuned to emit different levels of protons and neutrons, bombarding the spent fuel rods, increasing the different radioactive elements rate of emissions, This transmutes the elements, shortening their half life or eliminating the radioactive isotope completely.
    .
    The proposed GeNie Reactor does this and produces enough excess energy to power your turbine electrical generators. You may consider having multiple GeNie Reactors on sight providing low cost – high energy heat for all your power needs.

    Please contact the GEC president Jay Wook Khim or GEC manager Rufus Anglin or a member of the GEC Board of Directors to inquire.

    Chief scientist at GEC is Lawrence Forsley, a president of JWK.

    Senators Introduce Bipartisan, Comprehensive Nuclear Waste Legislation
    .
    Bill Takes Immediate Steps To Safely Store Waste and Break Gridlock over Permanent Repository
    .
    Washington, D.C. – Today four senior U.S. senators introduced a bipartisan, comprehensive plan for safeguarding and permanently disposing of tens of thousands of tons of dangerous radioactive nuclear waste currently accumulating at sites dispersed across the country.
    .
    Senators Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn. – the leaders of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development – and Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Ranking Member Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, collaborated on the proposal, the Nuclear Waste Administration Act of 2013 (S. 1240).

    1. Thanks Greg, for your passion.

      Why don’t you submit an article to Pulse? They are asking for submissions. Be nice, write well, they just might take it, and you will be famous.

  3. I’m afraid I can’t write good articles now. I’m too busy advocating the LENR remediation of nuclear waste.

    I still have a list of a couple of hundred to contact. Nuclear industry folks and others who have been adversly affected by the Uranium fuel cycle. Lot’s of those to contact, and most of them don’t follow cold fusion news.
    .
    I am also undertaking a letter to be sent to each person and organization involved with the Blue Ribbon Commission on Americas Nuclear Future.
    .
    Also a letter to send to the authors of Senate Bill – Nuclear Waste Administration Act of 2013 (S. 1240).
    .
    Floor comments are now closed on the bill and it will most likely pass. I wish I could have spoken of this on the Senate floor. LENR trasmutation of nuclear waste will provide electricity at half the price.
    .
    Provisions within the bill allow private industry to take over the new agency once it is formed and has gathered all the waste into safe repositories, Of course that would not be for many decades. First they are working on improving the safety of shipping nuclear waste by rail and truck. I hope the GeNie reactor can reduce the quanities shipped, thereby reducing both the expense and the risk of dispersing nuclear waste from power plants to repositories and long term storage.

    Thank you,

    Greg Goble

    1. Greg, you ask the following: “The GEC GeNie Reactor has only been properly presented at Cold Fusion Now. Why is that, Pulse writers?”

      For one thing it appears from your (and my own) research that development of this technology has been entrusted to NSTech LLC – and its group of partners. Without digging too deep one can see these partners, CH2M Hill, Northrup, B&W, AECOM are heavily vested in the nuclear fission industry. In as much as the GeNie represents a significant challenge to this industry, it is something like putting the fox in charge of the hen house.

      Specifically, CH2M Hill has admitted to criminal conduct following a Department of Justice investigation into its operations under a Department of Energy contract at the DOE Hanford, WA, nuclear site. CH2M Hill (CHG in the complaint) “CHG committed federal criminal violations, defrauding the public by engaging in years of widespread time card fraud.”

      “Between 1999 and 2008, CH2M Hill had a Department of Energy (DOE) contract to manage and clean 177 large underground storage tanks containing mixed radioactive and hazardous waste at the Department of Energy’s Hanford Nuclear Site in southeastern Washington (the Tank Farms Contract),” explained the Department of Justice (DOJ) in a March 7, 2013 press release…”

      So, one must ask, who put NSTech in charge of the one technology belonging to the American people that could at once remediate nuclear waste AND generate thermal and electrical energy?? It is a DOE contract, and as such the buck stops with Ernie Moniz, current Secretary. Given the weight of CH2M Hill’s criminal conduct, and its obvious bias against any form of cold fusion, can we expect the GeNie technology to see the light of day??

      It would therefor seem appropriate for immediate retraction of the NSTech contract and reassignment to an entirely independent contractor directly supervised by a Congressional oversight panel reporting to the bipartisan Comprehensive Nuclear Waste committee. The oversight panel should include LENR experts like Mike McKubre, Rob Duncan, and Peter Hagelstein.

      One might further speculate that the Global Energy project signed by the (subsequently impeached) Guam Governor was torpedoed by political intrigue. If the private financing via JWK remains available, there is little financial exposure to the US taxpayer and therefor seems like a reasonable license for the Navy/JWK patent. Development of GeNie reactor should not however limit additional patent licenses issued to other interests in either energy production or nuclear waste mitigation.

      We’ll look into this further and continue to post here.

  4. Greg,

    Several items come immediately to mind:

    1) the Nuclear Waste Admin Act, is legislation for transport and storage only – there is no remediation component, correct?

    2) there is no such (open) thing as a working GEC GeNie reactor yet, correct?

    3) Why not design/build a simpler device to remediate waste in situ? Reduce transport of dangerous waste.

    4) The entire nuclear community needs to openly endorse and acknowledge the application of LENR as a viable technology for mitigating waste; i.e. bipartisan committee, Ernest Moniz at DOE, NNSA, DTRA, NWA, and John P. Holdren, Science Adviser White House, certain LENR leaders e.g. Forsely, Dr. Robert Duncan

    If the legislation passes, a public event covered by US and international press should introduce the NWA Act AND the LENR mitigation component. At this stage there is only a program to move dangerous waste to long term storage site(s). The real news is the Navy LENR technology is capable of remediating some or all of that waste. That is the piece of the story that must be brought to the public.

  5. A brief look into NSTech LLC partners B&W (Nuclear Fuel Services), and AECOM provide further evidence that development of the GEC GeNie technology, and or the USPTO cold fusion patent (Energetic Particle Generator) issued to Navy/JWK – is in the wrong hands. B&W Nuclear Fuel Services is heavily invested in the management and supply of traditional nuclear fuels for Navy and in downblending enriched uranium for use in nuclear power facilities (fuel rods) and MOX at Savannah River Site. The advent of a successful nuclear waste/weapons transmutation process would severely limit long established financial revenues for B&W.

    AECOM energy is heavily invested in traditional centralized power plant construction and maintenance, including especially hydropower dam building and operations, thermal natural gas/coal-fueled boiler/turbines and construction, and operation licensing (COLA) for nuclear facilities and nuclear process plants.

    The remaining NSTech LLC partner Northrop Grumman is heavily invested in fission-based nuclear energy via its shipbuilding division and partnership with AREVA. In a press release re the JV they wrote as follows:

    “The joint venture, AREVA Newport News, LLC, with AREVA as the majority owner, will establish a world-class facility to manufacture heavy components for the U.S. Evolutionary Power Reactor (EPR), AREVA’s Generation III+ nuclear reactor, thereby supporting the nuclear energy resurgence, fueling domestic economic growth, and meeting the demand for American energy security.” These are fission technologies based on the French EDF nuclear industry designs.

    To sum, the NSTech LLC is the most heavily invested fission technology venture in the United States, and as such has absolutely NO incentive to successfully develop and utilize the Global Energy GeNie hybrid design OR the use of the Navy/JWK patent for waste mitigation. The extremely valuable Navy/JWK patent is therefor essentially useless in the hands of NSTech LLC and should be immediately withdrawn. Should NSTech have any proprietary interest in the Navy/JWK patent via e.g. certain joint development experiments with Navy SPAWAR, Congress (via the Bipartisan, Comprehensive Nuclear Waste Legislation) should order DOE to nullify said interest via contractual obligations and termination rights.

    As proposed above post, a completely independent oversight panel reporting to the Congressional Bipartisan Nuclear Waste committee should be assigned the task of assigning licenses to the Navy/JWK patent for the express purpose of fast track development of nuclear waste mitigation. Since the Navy/JWK patent belongs to the American people and is not intended or capable of use in weapons or national security interests, outside the application of significantly reducing the radioactive half life of nuclear waste – the oversight committee should include civilian and military scientists familiar with LENR and cold fusion research. There are many qualified from both Navy Research and institutions like SRI, University Missouri, and e.g. MIT’s Dr. Peter Hagelstein.

    This Navy/JWK patent, the property of the American people is a likely first step to an effective method of reducing the vast quantity of nuclear waste both commercial and from retired weapons stockpiles. Immediate development of the GeNie reactor AND other implementations of the patent technology for waste remediation is a most urgent action for the Congress.
