After studying Mechanical Engineering, John W. Varney migrated to Classical Atomic & Nuclear Physics at the Naval College in England. A member of Institution of Nuclear Engineers, he has designed aircraft jet engines, nuclear submarine primary systems design, steam plant design for power generation, application of gas turbines in power generation, and general consulting for industrial projects. Born 1939 in London, England, Varney is now retired and works to promote Dense Plasma Focus (DPF) fusion technology as a clean energy alternative to fossil fuels. 33 Eastmount Ave. Unit 1005, Toronto, ON M4K 1V3 Canada

John Varney: Small-scale fusion is “a matter of absolute urgency” January 13, 2013
August 2013 –To the media:
The ongoing disasters effected by the pollution of land and sea, global warming and climate-change with a strategy to prolong the combustion process [with fossil fuels] and nuclear fission [with the serious and ever present radiation hazards], can no longer be denied on the false and lame excuse, that there are no other viable options.
There are proven and available options as follows :-
[a] Power generation from wind turbines.
[b] Power generation from latest technology solar arrays.
[c] Power generation [thru the storage of excess power and subsequent power release from renewables above] with the new technology of the “ultra-capacitor” based on dry cells with parallel plates coated with barium titanate. Also this unit, operating as a battery is a superb unit for the electric propulsion of all road vehicles.
[d] Power generation and road vehicle electric propulsion with the “Blacklight Power” CIHT unit which has now been proven to generate substantial and reliable long lasting power as a water fed battery.
[e] Develop from a long established nuclear fusion research device [called the dense plasma focus device] a new type of compact, efficient, clean and pressurized fusion reactor that lends itself to mass production and ultimately very low cost without any radioactive emissions and zero chance of catastrophic accidents -[see the “Varney Protocol” in this document]. This remarkable system will power all categories of shipping, aircraft and spacecraft with the direct generation of electricity for electric propulsion.
This new era heralds an age of human liberation and enlightenment that will put the “dark age” of combustion and nuclear fission power behind us.
Journalism in particular and the “media” in general, hold the trump card for introduction of the new era, by exercising courage and accountability in serving and informing the public.
Should the media do this with enthusiasm and commitment it will have earned for their staff, a peaceful nightly slumber.
Should the media choose to turn away from this challenge, no amount of medication will release the shame of their deadly silence.
This document provides information [ideas, concepts and engineering data], that can lead to a transformation in the design of the globe’s new major cities integrating new [and environmentally clean] energy systems together with a practical and inclusive community to ensure a stable and high quality lifestyle for future generations. All professionals can contribute to what is an exciting and challenging project.
Your interest and support, if available, is welcome.
The location of “Babylon” style future cities could be anywhere on the globe that meets the following criteria:-
[a] Must be located in a zone of low earthquake probability.
[b] Must enjoy a climate with seasonal extremes that will allow parks and gardens [with good care] to thrive.
[c] Must be located within say 100 miles of sea coast or major inland lake or waterway.
[d] Must have established a recent history of political stability and have maintained a progressive society.
December 2012 –The material in this and following documents transmitted to you, deals with nuclear fusion meeting all power and propulsion needs within the next decade. The ending of power and propulsion from combustion, means adapting to climate change in a drastic way that will provide our children and grandchildren, with a noble and promising future in an enlightened world.
As much as I have to learn about the experience to date, with Dense Plasma Focus (DPF) development, there is the tremendous potential contribution that you [the technology experts] can make to transform a basic concept into a practical, efficient and perhaps an elegant fusion process that will enable us to make a giant [and urgent] step towards a surviving and sustainable future.
This subject is crucial to developing public cohesion in a bold and doable project to replace all energy generation and propulsion systems [presently using fossil and nuclear fission fuels], [in totality] within a decade by replacement with powerful, compact, efficient, low cost, safe and environmentally friendly fusion reactors, derived from a 50 year old Dense Plasma Focus Device.
This project will not only provide a transformation in our 21st. century technology and address the approaching calamity of global warming and climate change, but within 1 year it may initiate a revitalization of many major corporations [I estimate at least 10 in the G8 countries]. These multinational corporations could produce between them some 70,000 units [each rated at 100 MW] in a period of 5 years and in addition could produce several hundred thousand of smaller units for aircraft electric propulsion[for military, commercial and private categories] and for marine propulsion [ for vessels of all sizes in naval, commercial and private categories].
