Steven Greer, doctor from North Carolina, created The Disclosure Project (http://thedisclosureproject.org), the succeeding effort to reveal the extraterretrial coverup and bring vast change to the planet. I found this article particularly interesting in view of many of our conversations here.
New Energy Solutions And Implications
For The National Security And The Environment:
A Brief Overview for the US Senate
Steven M. Greer MD
The ultimate national security issue is intimately linked to the pressing environmental crisis facing the world today: The question of whether humanity can continue as a technologically advanced civilization.
Fossil fuels and the internal combustion engine are non-sustainable both environmentally and economically – and a replacement for both already exists. The question is not whether we will transition to a new post-fossil fuel economy, but when and how. The environmental, economic, geopolitical, national security and military issues related to this matter are profound and inextricably linked to one another.
The disclosure of such new energy technologies will have far-reaching implications for every aspect of human society and the time has come to prepare for such an event. For if such technologies were announced today, it would take at least 10-20 years for their widespread application to be effected. This is approximately how much time we have before global economic chaos begins due to demand far exceeding the supply of oil and environmental decay becomes exponential and catastrophic.
We have found that the technologies to replace fossil fuel usage already exist and need to be exploited and applied immediately to avert a serious global economic, geopolitical and environmental crisis in the not-so-distant future.
In summary, these technologies fall into the following broad categories:
# Quantum vacuum/ zero point field energy access systems and related advances in electromagnetic theory and applications
# Electrogravitic and magnetogravitic energy and propulsion
# Room temperature nuclear effects
# Electrochemical and related advances to internal combustion systems which achieve near zero emissions and very high efficiency
A number of practical applications using such technologies have been developed over the past several decades, but such breakthroughs have been either ignored due to their unconventional nature – or have been classified and suppressed due to national security, military interests and special interests.
Let us be clear: the question is not whether such systems exist and can be viable replacements for fossil fuels. The question is whether we have the courage to allow such a transformation in world society to occur.
Such technologies – especially those which bypass the need to use an external fuel source such as oil or coal – would have obvious and beneficial effects for humanity. Since these technologies do not require an expensive source of fuel but instead use existing quantum space energy, a revolution in the worlds economic and social order would result. These implications include:
# The removal of all sources of air pollution related to energy generation, including electric power plants, cars, trucks, aircraft and manufacturing;
# The ability to scrub to near zero effluent all manufacturing processes since the energy per se required for same would have no cost related to fuel consumption. This would allow the full application of technologies which remove effluent from smokestacks, solid waste and waterways since current applications are generally restricted by their energy costs and the fact that such energy consumption – being fossil fuel based – soon reaches the point of diminishing returns environmentally.
# The practical achievement of an environmentally near-zero impact yet high tech civilization on earth, thus assuring the long-term sustainability of human civilization.
# Trillions of dollars now spent on electric power generation, gas, oil, coal and nuclear power would be freed to be spent on more productive and environmentally neutral endeavors by both individuals and society as a whole.
# Underdeveloped regions of the Earth would be lifted out of poverty and into a high technology world in about a generation – but without the associated infrastructure costs and environmental impact related to traditional energy generation and propulsion. Since these new systems generate energy from the ambient quantum energy state, trillion dollar infrastructure investments in centralized power generation and distribution would be eliminated. Remote villages and towns would have the ability to generate energy for manufacturing, electrification, water purification, etc. without purchasing fuels or building massive transmission lines and central power grids.
# Near total recycling of resources and materials would be possible since the energy costs for doing so – now the main obstacle – would be brought down to a trivial level.
# The vast disparity between rich and poor nations would quickly disappear – and with it much of the zero-sum-game mentality which is at the root of so much social, political and international unrest. In a world of abundant and inexpensive energy, many of the pressures, which have led to a cycle of poverty, exploitation, resentment and violence would be removed from the social dynamic. While ideological, cultural and religious differences would persist, the raw economic disparity and struggle would be removed from the equation fairly quickly.
# Surface roads- and therefore most road building – will be unnecessary as Electrogravitic/ antigravity energy and propulsion systems replace current surface transportation systems.
# The world economy would expand dramatically and those advanced economies such as in the US and Europe would benefit tremendously as global trade, development and high technology energy and propulsion devices are demanded around the world. Such a global energy revolution would create an expanding world economy which would make the current computer and Internet economy look like a rounding error. This really would be the tide which would lift all ships.
# Long term, society would evolve to a psychology of abundance, which would redound to the benefit of humanity as a whole, a peaceful civilization and a society focused increasingly on creative pursuits rather than destructive and violent endeavors.
Lest all of this sound like a pipe-dream, keep in mind that such technological advances are not only possible, but they already exist. What is lacking is the collective will, creativity and courage to see that they are applied wisely. And therein lies the problem.
As an emergency and trauma doctor, I know that everything can be used for good or for ill. A knife can butter your bread – or cut your throat. Every technology can have beneficial as well as harmful applications.
The latter partially explains the serious national security and military concerns with such technologies. For many decades, these advances in energy and propulsion technologies have been acquired, suppressed and classified by certain interests who have viewed them as a threat to our security from both an economic and military perspective. In the short term, these concerns have been well-founded: Why rock the global economic boat by allowing technologies out which would, effectively, terminate the multi-trillion dollar oil, gas, coal, internal combustion engine and related transportation sectors of the economy? And which could also unleash such technologies on an unstable and dangerous world where the weapons applications for such technological breakthroughs would be a certainty? In the light of this, the status quo looks good.
But only for the short term. In fact, such national security and military policies – fed by huge special interests in obvious industries and nations – have exacerbated global geopolitical tensions by impoverishing much of the world, worsening the zero-sum-game mind set of the rich vs. poor nations and brought us to a world energy emergency and a pending environmental crisis. And now we have very little time to fix the situation. Such thinking must be relegated to the past.
For what can be a greater threat to the national security than the specter of a collapse of our entire civilization from a lack of energy and global chaos as every nation fights for its share of a limited resource? Due to the long lead time needed to transform the current industrial infrastructure away from fossil fuels, we are facing a national security emergency which almost nobody is talking about. This is dangerous.
It has also created a serious constitutional crisis in the US and other countries where non-representative entities and super-secret projects within compartmented military and corporate areas have begun to set national and international policy on this and related matters – all outside the arena of public debate, and mostly without informed consent from Congress or the President.
Indeed this crisis is undermining democracy in the US and elsewhere. I have had the unenviable task of personally briefing senior political, military, and intelligence officials in the US and Europe on this and related matters. These officials have been denied access to information compartmented within certain projects, which are, frankly, unacknowledged areas (so-called black projects). Such officials include members of the House and Senate, President Clintons first Director of Central Intelligence, the head of the DIA, senior Joint Staff officials and others. Usually, the officials have little to no information on such projects and technologies – and are told either nothing or that they do not have a need to know if they specifically inquire.
This presents then another problem: these technologies will not be suppressed forever. For example, our group is planning a near term disclosure of such technologies and we will not be silenced. At the time of such a disclosure, will the US government be prepared? It would behoove the US government and others to be informed and have a plan for transitioning our society from fossil fuels to these new energy and propulsion systems.
Indeed, the great danger is ignorance by our leaders of these scientific breakthroughs – and ignorance of how to manage their disclosure. The advanced countries of the world must be prepared to put systems in place to assure the exclusive peaceful use of such energy and propulsion advances. Economic and industrial interests should be prepared so that those aspects of our economy which will be adversely affected (commodities, oil, gas, coal, public utilities, engine manufacturing, etc) can be cushioned from sudden reversals and be economically hedged by investing in and supporting the new energy infrastructure.
A creative view of the future – not fear and suppression of such technologies – is required. And it is needed immediately. If we wait 10-20 more years, it will be too late to make the needed changes before world oil shortages, exorbitant costs and geopolitical competition for resources causes a melt-down in the worlds economy and political structures.
All systems tend towards homeostasis. The status quo is comfortable and secure. Change is frightening. But in this case, the most dangerous course for the national security is inaction. We must be prepared for the coming convulsions related to energy shortages, spiraling costs and economic disruption. The best preparation would be a replacement for oil and related fossil fuels. And we have it. But disclosing these new energy systems carries its own set of benefits, risks and challenges. The US government and the Congress must be prepared to wisely manage this great challenge.
Recommendations for Congress:
# Thoroughly investigate these new technologies both from current civilian sources as well as compartmented projects within military, intelligence and corporate contracting areas;
# Authorize the declassification and release of information held within compartmented projects related to this subject;
# Specifically prohibit the seizing or suppression of such technologies
# Authorize substantial funding for basic research and development by civilian scientists and technologists into these areas;
# Develop plans for dealing with disclosing such technologies and for the transition to a non-fossil fuel economy. These plans should include: military and national security planning; strategic economic planning and preparation; private sector support and cooperation; geopolitical planning, especially as it pertains to OPEC countries and regions whose economies are very dependent on oil exports and the price of oil; international cooperation and security; among others.
I personally stand ready to assist the Congress in any way possible to facilitate our use of these new energy sources. Having dealt with this and related sensitive matters for over 10 years, I can recommend a number of individuals who can be subpoenaed to provide testimony on such technologies, as well as people who have information on unacknowledged special access projects within covert government operations which are already dealing with these issues.
If we face these challenges with courage and with wisdom together, we can secure for our children a new and sustainable world, free of poverty and environmental destruction. We will be up to this challenge, because we must be.January 12, 2007 at 1:06 pm #20388
Wow, there are several topics to consider here. My first instinct is for the doubting game. After I digest and ponder, I’ll try and play the believing game and see where that takes me.
Steven M. Greer MD believes that cheap energy is possible without environmental impact. He believes this already exists but is denied to us because of conspiracy.
Steven M. Greer MD believes that our current lifestyle is not sustainable. We have 10 to 20 years “before global economic chaos begins due to demand far exceeding the supply of oil and environmental decay becomes exponential and catastrophic. ”
Steven M Greer MD then applies these 2 belief according to his current social view.
He makes several statements that I can’t agree with because of first principles.
SMG writes “Underdeveloped regions of the Earth would be lifted out of poverty and into a high technology world in about a generation.”
This starts with the question of why there is poverty. I believe that poverty exists for 3 reasons: lack of freedom, corruption, and societal composting. If you look back and study Hong Kong, you’ll find a place with few natural resources. They lived in poverty, they became a province of Great Britain, and within a generation had a standard of living that was on par with Great Britain itself. Why? Not because of anything given to them. They were left alone. The governor of Hong Kong gave the people their freedom and removed corruption. He refused government the ability to study the economy. He reasoned that once the government knew what was going on, they’d want money and control. Be believed this would hurt the economy. He believed that you didn’t have to lift people out of poverty, but that they could do it themselves. He was right.
If you look to Mexico and Africa, the major problems are corruption and lack of freedom. They don’t need cheap energy to fix this. They don’t need freebies. The world is not a zero sum game. They need to do it themselves. Only then is it sustainable.
And lastly, societal compost. But that’s a whole other topic…
SMG wrote “The vast disparity between rich and poor nations would quickly disappear – and with it much of the zero-sum-game mentality which is at the root of so much social, political and international unrest.”
Again, he does not address freedom and corruption. There is no reason to believe the disparity between rich and poor nation would disappear. I disagree that the disparity is a bad thing. And I disagree with his root causes of unrest.
SMG wrote, “Long term, society would evolve to a psychology of abundance, which would redound to the benefit of humanity as a whole, a peaceful civilization and a society focused increasingly on creative pursuits rather than destructive and violent endeavors. ”
Again, what of freedom and corruption? But this is a statement that I’ll have to reconsider when I play the believing game.January 12, 2007 at 7:16 pm #20390
You’re thinking altogether to much about it. Just leave your mind open to possibilities and also assume that you have not got all the facts about what has reaaly been going on for over a hundred yers on earth. The final piece will be to leave the space open for the lifeforce to do the unpredictable.

I’ve been playing the believing game with the article, but it feels incomplete and leads to many unstated beliefs. What do I have to believe in order to play?
For the article, there are 2 main beliefs. First, cheap energy is possible without environmental impact. Second, the availability of this energy will transform human nature and society.
There is a third belief, that humanity’s current direction faces a crisis in the next 10 to 20 years. But I’ve heard that over and over again and they’ve always been wrong. Besides, this belief has nothing to do with the main points other than to scare people into action. By playing the believing game, I don’t need to be motivated by fear.
I’m left with the question of how can I believe the first 2? The first is easy. I love science fiction. Advanced technology will happen. The second doesn’t make much sense. It’s a paradigm shift. These shifts have happened many times in history. Einstein caused such a shift, but he backed it up with verified predictions. Then there’s the great Internet bubble. They said they’d reinvented business and changed all the rules, but they hadn’t.
Ultimately, we’re talking about a shift from scarcity to plenty. These shifts have happened in the past, but they’ve never caused utopia or changed human nature. Perhaps the other shifts were minor quakes, and this will be off the charts. Still pondering…
If I throw in your idea of a surging lifeforce that will change human nature and coincide with the article’s change I can get a bit closer. But when I ask what am I believing, I ultimately come up with a new religion. The changes that are going to happen follow no example in history. I’m playing the believing game based on faith. Why would I have such faith when I already have a religion? Still pondering..January 13, 2007 at 6:20 pm #20394
I really appreciate your consideration of something new. That is the major “technique” needed here. An open mind, a willingness to see and have something far better, and some actions taken on behalf of that are our part in the process. The rest is up to the Dao. This statement carries a lot of weight and also closes a lot of minds because it sounds so vaporous. “Having faith” is really challenging but the major point here is that we are learning how to be something that we have never been before – a kind of being that trusts that greater things can happen without knowing how or controlling them to get them to happen. That’s the true meaning of prayer – trusting that GOd will take care of the details.
I will answer your questions, but just keep in mind that you don’t have to understand it all, know how to do it, or make it happen. It’s a new way of thinking.
“What do I have to believe in order to play?”
That the Dao, or God or spirit is capable of creating more than we can guess and better than we could have imagined. This calls for cultivating a new space inside us which is empty of preconceptions, lack of self-worth and other dysfunctional things.
Also, you are couching your question inside of the idea of having to have a certain belief. It’s actually the opposite of that. Have an open mind about it. Be innocent.
“By playing the believing game, I don’t need to be motivated by fear.”
A very good point. Fear motivation is a thing of the past. When in a state of divine contact there is no fear. Divine contact is our heritage and destiny. We’re heading that way. Right now, people cannot think properly. We are not really in our right minds. As we allow greater amounts of divine light, yuan chi, whatever in, our perception of things opens up. We no longer fall back upon the normal ways of thinking. This is where society has been stuck for a long time and that is part of the reason the change is taking some time. People have a hard time letting go because of their fear of change. But the energies that are settling into the field are reminding us of who and what we really are and that is taking the place of the old self-image and the beliefs that go along with it. Beings who know themselves to be at least somewhat divine do not act the same way as beings who believe they are unloved, unwanted, powerless,… So as our consciousness raises our behaviors become more peaceful and cooperative with the lifeforce, and we automatically expect positives instead of negatives.
“It’s a paradigm shift. These shifts have happened many times in history. Einstein caused such a shift…”
That was minute but a step in the right direction. Things like that set us up for HAVING to see the universe in a different way. The steps have been bigger and faster as the years have gone by. When the necessary thrust has been accumulated the entire dynamic will shift like a see-saw gone 50.01% to the other side.
“But when I ask what am I believing, I ultimately come up with a new religion.”
That is just the way you are used to thinking. You seem to like to think in firm structures and instituions. Imagine that, even if you don’t know how, something else could happen, even if there is no precedent in earth history. Just play with that imaginative possibility. This is why people refer to it as “the end of the world.” The new one is radically different because it does not so much involve regime change as dimensional change. And rest assured, whatever structure you need will be provided for you.
What you are coming into contact with is your own thought structures about what you believe is possible. Now you have decided to entertain the possibility that something else can happen and so it’s putting you face to face with your beliefs. That’s a great position to be in! Now you have more choice.
Why don’t you ask for guidance and energy for this when you are in meditation? Just let the lifeforce move things around energetically for you and smile on the whole process. See what happens.
I think that environmental impact from cheap or free energy is definitely going to happen but that it will be good impact. I am reminded of the scene from Ayn Rand’s book Anthem. A man in a totalitarian society who wants to light up the place using electricity which he has just gotten to understand is told that it will not be allowed because it would put the candlemakers out of business. Dinosaur thinking.
We’ll adjust great. There’ll be some work to do but it will be good work.
And where he mentions a crisis in the next ten to twenty years – I think we’re having it now and that’s what’s helping to move things along. People actually want change. It’s just their lumpy old beliefs that are causing the resistance they feel to new things.
