Here Comes the World-Changer

BRADENTON, Fla., July 21, 2014 -- Before you read this article, you ought to go to http://www.blacklightpower.com and look at the videos, illustrations and scientific validation reports that crowd the site. Then come back here.
Okay, you're back. Did you think that what you were seeing was some kind of scam? Some eccentric's wild fantasy? Some misguided physicist's last gasp and last grasp for fame?
I don't think a rational person is going to feel any of those things. You may have only the dimmest understanding of the processes involved in the technology, but you probably recognize that what is being talked about there is real.
So, if you accept that Dr. Randell Mills' hydrino technology is ready to debut on the world stage pretty soon -
<A HREF="http://www.blacklightpower.com/rrn-interview/">he says it will be "very quickly"</A> - you ought to be asking yourself some pretty important questions.<ul>
<li> When will the technology be available?</ul>
The answer to that is that while working prototypes are now available for qualified people to inspect, the actual roll-out of commercial and residential devices is about a year away, by my estimate.
Since there are a variety of applications - such as for bullet trains, jumbo jets, electric cars and power stations, the debut of each model for each application will probably be staggered, reflecting the speed of the system engineering and the product manufacturing process for each one.
That is so even though the fundamental device will only change slightly for each application. Three different engineering firms are now working on these projects, Dr. Mills says.
It seems likely the smallest unit would come first and be for cars that will get 1,500 miles on a liter of water. The last will probably be for the jumbo jets, which will require an extensive safety evaluation process, as will units for homes and communities.<ul>
<li> How will it affect me, and the economy in general?</ul>
Since virtually every electrical energy apoplication we now know can probably be replaced with the inexhaustible SF-CIHT and other hydrino-based fuel cells, you can expect great resistance and the most virulent condemnation of the hydrino devices. That will come from people with intellectual and financial investments in competing fuels and technologies.
One antidote to that, of course, is the demand for technology that will dramatically reduce the cost of power for homes and manufacturing. Powering homes and fueling cars almost for free will have a powerful appeal for the ordinary person.
These two opposing forces will have to balance one another until the technology gains wide acceptance, and at that point - the tipping point, we'd call it - all other forms of electric power generation will become obsolete. You might like to keep driving that shiny green '65 Cadillac for the luxury and style of it, but you won't like paying for gasoline that has become obsolete.
When demand for gas falls, it becomes expensive to supply it, so prices may rise so dramatically that only the very rich will be able to afford to fill their tank. Or, possibly, it will become so cheap that it is almost given away because no one wants or uses it. Oil, on the other hand, will always have many uses, from simple lubrication to complex plastics.
As all this occurs, there will be a predictable set of results. One is that millions of people will be employed in the assembly, sale and design of new cars, ships, planes, power plants and other applications that will use the immense amounts of energy created by these cells.
Huge fortunes will be made by those who correctly guess the most popular applications. For instance, confronted with a choice between a gas-free vehicle that will take you across the country without a stop for fuel or recharging, what will you want to travel in? An RV? A power bicycle? A fancy sports car? Your decision (and that of the larger market, of course) will make someone a millionaire.
At the same time, because the technology is so affordable - it cost only $70 million over 26 years to create it - when the R&D costs trickle down to you and the volume of technology production ramps way up, your costs will be quite low. By contrast, imagine how long it would take to amortize the $60 billion that been spent - fruitlessly, so far - on the search for hot fusion.
It will not be nearly so expensive to transport beans from fields in California or kale from Arizona or pineapples from Hawaii or wheat from Kansas to you in New York or Chicago or Miami. That fact alone will reduce the cost of your food - and anything else delivered by car, truck, train or plane. That <A HREF="http://tinyurl.com/nyvc2u7">transportation cost</A> can currently be as much as 10 percent of overhead.
You won't face $800 heating bills for your 5-bedroom home in December, or $600 bills to cool it in summer; instead, that electricity usage should only cost you $5 or $10.
You'll have virtually no cost except the car payments to fuel your car, and the cost of taking a bus or train or plane will be dramatically less.<ul>
<li> Will the government really let this happen?</ul>
Well, that depends on a lot of things. The first is how wisely you cast your vote for Congressmen and Senators and our future Presidents.
As an example, my old friend Rep. Rush Holt (D-NJ), who represents the district in which Blacklight Power and Dr. Mills reside, is a quantum physicist who is very skeptical of the classical Maxwellian mechanics that underlie Dr. Mills' work, and has never lifted a finger to help his research along. Instead, he has worked hard to fund the endless cost of the Princeton scientists who are still searching for practical hot fusion. You would think he'd know better.
How amenable the government will be to the introduction of this technology - after all, it would entirely wipe out the gas taxes that provide funds for the Interstate highway system - will depend on how wisely you vote and whom you elect.
You may have to resist some very powerful campaigns funded by the richest corporations - the oil companies - and you will not find it easy to determine who the good guy really is. It won't be a partisan affair - integrity doesn't come in just red and blue.
Members of Congress and the Senate will be torn between the corporations that rely on high fuel costs for their profits and you, the ordinary guy or gal, who desperately need a break from those escalating costs.
The technology will also free up a lot of money that once went to fuel costs - whether it's to heat that stove at McDonald's, or to power the assembly line back at the factory where the stove was constructed. That ought to mean a lot higher pay and a lot more disposable income for you - if your vote elects the right people to office.
The government is a huge consumer of food and fuel. Just think about what nearly free electricity will mean for all those troop carriers, from trucks to tanks to jet planes and rockets, and all the food all those soldiers consume and complain about.
Congress won't be able to defend huge defense budgets to support armed forces of the same size when those costs are so dramatically cut, so they won't be able to ask for the same high level of taxation.
Again, however, and I can't emphasize this enough, this will depend on how wisely you cast your vote. Whether you're a fifth-generation Democrat or the scion of a rich Republican dynasty, your common interest in lowered costs will be the same - and a good government will reflect that fact.<ul>
<li> What will the technology cost me?</ul>
Again, there are many variables to consider. Since the adoption of the technology will be universal, the applications the ordinary family can afford ought to be pretty modest.
