Alternative Sources of Clean,
Free Energy Are Available
But We Can't Have It

A few years back, when I was a young and eager reporter operating a news bureau in Michigan's Sanilac County, I met an amazing man named Vernon Trigger who claimed to have found a source of clean, free energy.

Trigger was in his twilight years when I knew him. He said he was fighting a losing battle with the big energy companies that were blocking efforts to get his discovery marketed. He was attempting to write a book about his discovery. Being careful not to reveal his secret, he gave me a limited version of his story. I was surprised after writing the piece when my newspaper, a member of the all-power Gannett chain, refused to print it.

Although he lacked the title of "Ph.D." in front of his name, I was convinced that Vernon Trigger was not a fake. He was a genius who accomplished more than 20 "specialists" might achieve in a lifetime. He grew up during the early years of radio, helped develop the first ship-to-shore radio communication system and worked with Westinghouse in developing the first commercial radio transmission towers. During World War II, when gasoline was being rationed, Trigger invented a carburetor that allowed automobile engines to run on methane gas. He studied architecture and designed a few homes (including his own) that rivaled the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Before he retired he worked with the government in the development of nuclear energy.

When I met him, Trigger had a team of people working in a laboratory in the basement of his house. He did not disclose to me the source of his energy discovery, but he assured me that it was readily available all around us. He even gave me a few demonstrations by sending a light jolts of energy through my body from across the room. He implied that he had stumbled on a secret that
Nicoli Tesla knew, and understood why Tesla believed it possible for everybody to have free and natural energy to heat their homes and turn on lights without having to buy power sent to our homes on wires.

Trigger said he was being blocked by the same kind of industrial greed that went to great lengths to stop Tesla. There was just too much money to be lost if people ever learned Tesla's secret. They could have all of the natural energy they needed without having to pay for it.

I have a feeling that these sources of energy were known to people like Henry Ford, J. P. Morgan and Thomas Edison during the years when steam, gasoline and electric power systems were being developed. They were kept secret because nobody could find a way to profit from the sale of this kind of energy. Electricity, which for years was an extremely inexpensive form of energy, was made available only because Tesla invented the concept of alternating current. Edison had the idea of building electric generating plants and sending juice down wires to houses and industry, but he didn't have a workable delivery system.

Now, thanks to the Internet, there are inklings that inventors all over the world are discovering some of the secret things that Tesla and Vernon Trigger knew, but were prevented from making available to the world.

In Cairns, Australia, engineer John Christie and electrician Lou Brits have applied for a patent on a machine
they say will use batteries and magnets to provide years of enough free and non-toxic energy to power a house. 

Relying on the attraction and repulsion of internal magnets, their machine, called the Lutec 1000,
operates continually on a pulse-like current after it is kick started from a battery source. The machine is more than 500 percent efficient. The inventors say it is almost a perpetual motion machine but for the fact that the battery pack must be replaced once every five years.

They hope to sell the machine for under $5,000.

I am not going to hold my breath on this one. Small businessmen with great inventions like this have been getting bought (swallowed up) by the big power interests for years. Trigger told me about a friend of his that developed a working solar cell during the depression years, sometime in the early 1930s. The patent was bought by a major electric company and never seen again.

My wife's brother, Wayne, once bought a new Ford pickup truck. It had a big V-8 engine, back in the days when gasoline was cheap and trucks averaged about 15 miles to the gallon. Wayne noticed that this particular truck seemed to go a long way on a tank of gasoline so he started calculating the distance he could go on a gallon of fuel. He was shocked to discover this particular truck was averaging about 50 miles on a gallon, something unheard of at the time.

Wayne loved that trick and drove it for several years. He was a back-yard mechanic and did his own maintenance. One day, he said he removed the carburetor for cleaning, and accidentally damaged it. He had to buy a new carburetor. After that, the truck averaged only 15 miles to the gallon, just like everybody else's truck.

What was different about the original carburetor in Wayne's truck? Did he actually buy a truck with one of those fabled "experimental" carburetors mistakenly installed? That I knew a man who could give me a first-hand account of having owned such a vehicle was evidence to me that carburetors existed years ago that were capable of delivering exceptional gas mileage with those old and powerful V-8 engines we used to love.

The 1970's "fuel crisis" was a scam designed to force fuel prices up and put bigger profits in the pockets of the energy giants. I suspect the move to force automobile manufacturers to shift to smaller, fuel and energy-efficient engines also was part of the scam. The price of cars more than doubled after that and we bought that lie, hook-line-and-sinker.

Some might say the business is business and that we enjoy our cars, electronic devices and comfortable home heating and cooling systems because the people who developed them were motivated by profit.

This is true. But the system we developed, all of it dependent on the burning of fossil fuels, has destroyed the natural ecological balance of nature, poked giant holes in our protective ozone layer, and now threatens the future existence of all life on this planet. In the long run, we are going to all have to admit that we took a wrong turn sometime around 1890 and followed an industrial path into self destruction.
