THE TRANSFORMATION OF RISK

December 6, 2007

Introduction

Advanced Energy Research Organization, LLC (AERO) has identified several clean energy technologies which will transform the current world environmental and energy situation. This overview explains how the current risks of environmental global warming, air pollution and public health challenges, energy resource scarcity and competition, global terrorism and current electric grid obsolescence and vulnerability are transformed by these out-of-the-box technologies.

Technological Overview

Since 1900, significant advances in electromagnetic theory and innovative ways of generating electric power have occurred. These developments have been largely unheralded, ignored or actively suppressed. AERO has identified a very extensive portfolio of information, designs and scientists who are experts in this area.

These technologies are numerous and summarized elsewhere, but in summary fall into three broad categories:

Risk Transformation

It may be argued that the types of technologies AERO has identified are too good. That is, they would completely upend the current oil, coal, gas and nuclear power infrastructure.

However, any realistic view of the current global situation reveals a world that is hurtling towards a number of interlocking disasters which cannot be rectified by incremental changes. These include: Global warming; geo-political conflict over resource competition for oil and gas; a creaky and rapidly failing electric utility grid; growing disparity between the developed and developing world; a mid-east and Persian Gulf policy driven by the West's endless appetite for oil (also euphemistically called 'our strategic national security interest...') growing mountains of nuclear waste from nuclear power plants attended by a 'not in my backyard' response to its disposition; and so forth. Add to this the fact that China and India alone will be adding an estimated 650 new coal fired power plants in the next decade, thus doubling current greenhouse gases.

Even if all of the above described advanced physics break-through technologies were ready for mass dissemination in 2008, it would take at least 10-20 years to replace the world's current fossil fuel and nuclear infrastructure.

In our analysis, the greatest risk is to do nothing- or to continue to adopt only incremental improvements in energy generation and transportation. Wind, solar, bio-fuels, carbon sequestration, however laudable and well-intentioned, are too little, too late, and must be augmented by a robust research and development program focusing on new energy sciences outlined above and in the AERO proposal.

Ironically, it is 'careful incrementalism' that is the riskiest approach, given the enormous environmental, societal, health and geo-political challenges facing humanity today.

AERO recommends a peaceful Manhattan-style research program to fully develop out-of-the-box new energy sciences to create solutions ready for the market within 18-24 months. This is feasible, given the extensive progress- however arcane and heretofore unacknowledged- already accomplished in this area.

The Transitional Technologies mentioned above can be quickly brought forward to retrofit existing cars, trucks and power plants, thus reducing fuel use and greenhouse gases, and greatly reducing overall pollution. They will also enable the West to wean itself off of its current destabilizing Mid-East oil addiction in less than 10 years, if robustly applied.

At the same time, the New Electromagnetic Generator can begin to be phased in to completely replace the need for oil, gas, nuclear power and the centralized power grid. Since these new systems use no fuel and create no pollution, we can transform the current high-risk global situation into a world of sustainability, abundance and wide-spread economic development. The nature of these technologies allows any home or village to be powered without the need for costly fuels or a transmission and distribution system. Just as many areas of the developing world bypassed old-fashioned land lines for telecommunications and went directly to cell phones, they will similarly be able to develop energy generation capacity free of smoke stacks and centralized utilities.

The current zero-sum game of oil, gas, coal and nuclear power only ensures environmental disaster and social and economic disparity- which only further destabilizes the already precarious global geopolitical situation. There is simply no way 6.5 billion people on the earth can all be driving ICE - based cars and trucks, and using oil, gas, coal and nuclear power for electricity. The current industrial and energy order, in fact, requires extensive global poverty- which serves only to breed resentment of the West, fuel global terrorism and foster radicalism.

The adoption of a bold initiative to support, disclose and disseminate the above clean energy technologies is our best hope at risk management, and more importantly, the transformation of the current world crisis into a peaceful, stable and sustainable human future.

AERO invites the world community to assist in network support and research underwriting so that these promising technological developments will have a chance of succeeding. For less than 1% of the estimated $5 billion per year spent in the United States alone to study global warming, AERO can complete development and testing of these advanced clean energy technologies that will go a long way to solving the problem.

This represents a relatively small investment that will greatly mitigate the enormous risks facing the human future- and give the good future that awaits humanity a real chance of emerging.
