Today’s approaches to electromobility are not environmentally sound

The time has come for a technological revolution!

Oddly enough, first steps in this direction were already taken many years ago. 

The automobile manufacturer TESLA takes its name from the famous inventor Nikola Tesla, but the connection ends there. Far from being truly innovative, this company produces relatively commonplace electric vehicles using today’s conventional technology, and these vehicles are powered by batteries that must be recharged regularly. 

Nikola Tesla, on the other hand, drove an automobile in the 1930’s that was able to convert the cosmic energy of the neutrino. 

Today, this inventor and his groundbreaking innovations are basically unknown to the general public, but is it inconceivable that he has fallen into obscurity for the simple reason that his inventions were unwelcome and would have disturbed the established system? Many questions still remain unanswered, and Tesla’s death at the age of 86 is shrouded in mystery. His body was discovered on January 8, 1943 by employees of the hotel where Tesla had been living, and the coroner determined the time of death to have been the day before. That much is clear. Less clear, however, is the reason why Tesla’s papers and possessions were immediately confiscated by U. S. intelligence agents. It appears that certain members of the American government were worried that sensitive material could find its way into a foreign country – which is understandable – but it is strange that the majority of this material has been kept hidden to this very day. One of Tesla’s many revolutionary projects involved converting the activity of neutrino particles into a virtually unlimited source of energy. 

In the 1930’s Nikola Tesla already drove an automobile that was powered by neutrinos.

In recent years there has been much talk of protecting the environment and thus securing the future of the planet, but all too often these discussions are marred by misinformation and ignorance. Additionally, lobbyists for the automotive industry and the energy sector are paid to complicate the issues with intentionally misleading information that benefits the interests of their employers. The result is that it has become extremely difficult for a person who has no special interest in technology to form an educated opinion on the matter. 

And although it is of utmost importance that the environment be protected, not all efforts to do so are truly productive and forward-thinking. Electromobility, for example, has become entirely dependent on batteries and charging stations, and the manufacturers of these devices obviously have no interest in technology that could replace the old-fashioned way of doing things. What’s more, energy companies also profit from electromobility in its present form, because they supply the electricity needed to recharge the batteries. Simply put, an entire industry has arisen around conventional electric vehicles, and it relies on this outdated technology in order to make money. 

At the present time, driving an SUV is significantly less harmful to the environment than the use of one of the battery-powered automobiles available on the market today. 

Factors to consider when thinking about currently available electric vehicles: 

1) Burning fossil fuel in order to generate electricity is exceedingly wasteful. Over 60% of the energy gained in this process is not converted into electricity, but rather into heat, and even the most sophisticated coal-fired power plants in use today are only able to reduce the level of energy loss to 48%. Furthermore, combusting fossil fuels results in huge quantities of pollutants. For this reason, the impression that conventional electric automobiles are clean and environmentally friendly is deceptive. While it is true that they themselves have no exhaust pipes which spew pollution into the environment, the electricity that these vehicles use is produced in power plants where enormous amounts of pollution are generated. Thus, the problem of pollution is merely relocated, but it still exists. 

Electricity can of course also be generated in an atomic power plant, but here the rate of inefficiency is much higher, and the resulting pollution even more destructive to the environment. Nuclear waste remains deadly for centuries, and the methods of storing it are precarious and extremely expensive. Despite the assurances of politicians and energy companies that atomic energy represents a viable alternative to fossil fuel, the risks involved in the production of nuclear power and the storage of nuclear waste over long periods of time are incalculable. 

2) Many people are unaware that conveying electricity from the power plant where it was generated to the consumer results in further losses of energy due to the physical resistance of the conducting materials that are used. The electricity that finally comes out of the socket has thus not only created pollutants, but also additional costs to the end user who must pay for the electricity which actually reaches him as well as for the electricity which was lost along the way. It is imperative that consumers finally begin to think about this problem and understand the need for an alternative. Energy companies have no interest in finding a solution, because they profit from the present situation, and electromobility merely allows them to sell more electricity. Ultimately, the hope of many to find an environmentally friendly solution to the internal combustion engine in an electrically powered vehicle is based on a deception comparable to the recent scandal surrounding the intentionally falsified emissions levels of diesel motors. 

3) Electricity stored in batteries leads to a further waste of energy. The degree of efficiency of batteries available today is roughly 10%, which means that 90% of the energy stored in the battery is lost. This information was already available in the 1970’s, but it seems to have been forgotten or suppressed. Nevertheless, the fact remains that nothing has changed with regard to the inefficiency of conventional batteries. 

Conclusion: The electricity that comes out of a wall socket must be generated somehow and somewhere, and the current methods would only be sensible from an ecological standpoint if this energy were derived from renewable resources. Considerations with regard to practicality and cost-effectiveness, however, dictate that at some point a total paradigm shift will be necessary – away from centrally produced energy and towards a method that functions everywhere using cosmic radiation. Only when this becomes possible will electromobility be in a position to celebrate its final victory. 

Many companies are now working diligently to develop the groundbreaking technology inspired by Nikola Tesla years ago.

One of these companies is the Neutrino Energy Group, to which Germany’s “Neutrino Deutschland GmbH” in the capital city of Berlin belongs. Together with an international team of scientists and supporters, the Neutrino Energy Group is presently in the process of developing devices (Ncells) that can convert invisible radiant energy such as that from neutrinos into electricity. The principle behind these devices is similar to that of a photovoltaic system, the main difference being that a portion of the non-visible spectrum is used. This approach has the advantage of making use of radiant energy that is available at every point on the earth’s surface 24 hours and 365 days a year. These Ncells represent a paradigm shift; a technological revolution. Their use will finally allow electromobility to become an economic and ecological success. 

To some, this bold claim might appear far-fetched, but in the end it’s a matter of basic scientific principles: Einstein’s famous equation “E=mc2” indicates that mass in motion will also possess energy, and in 2015 two physicists were awarded the Nobel Prize for demonstrating that neutrinos do indeed possess a measurable mass. Neutrinos are the energy source of the future, as the United States Department of Energy recently announced; Professor Stephen Hawking claimed that tapping the energy of the neutrino was one of the most important projects of the 21st century; and former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan called the vast potential that neutrino energy represents for humanitarian purposes magnificent and tremendous. Science has presented us with the wisdom to reach this goal, but do we have the strength to stay on course and move towards a brighter future? 

Achieving this goal is, however, not in everyone’s best interest. The energy industry, for example, has absolutely nothing to gain from a viable alternative to its long-standing monopoly, and for this reason it has always opposed other possible sources of energy. For more than 100 years power has been produced in centrally located plants and transported to end-users in an inefficient and costly process that resulted in huge profits for the industry and tax revenue for the state – all at the expense of the consumer. In order to protect this highly profitable business model, the energy industry has done everything in its power to discredit alternative energy sources as utopic and absurd, and most people lack the technical background to see through the veil of deception. 

Nikola Tesla’s grand vision of an alternative to conventional energy sources faced this very opposition: His inventions were sabotaged, his financial backing was cut, and his notes and scientific papers were seized and kept secret. Now, however, modern methods of production could finally make it possible to implement Tesla’s innovations and to revolutionize mankind’s methods of producing energy. This technological revolution will occur; it is only a question of when. 

The current methods of energy production are becoming less and less tenable: Fossil fuels are limited in quantity and will one day be exhausted; the dangers of atomic energy and its deadly by-products make it an unsuitable alternative. Only by consulting the latest scientific discoveries and utilizing them for the creation of innovative, practical technology will it be possible to find a solution to this dilemma that effectively serves both humanity and the environment. Radiant energy from the sun and from other cosmic particles is the solution, because it is ecologically unproblematic and virtually unlimited. For example, each day enough neutrino energy reaches the earth to meet the needs of the entire plant many thousands of times over, but it will only be possible to tap this vast potential energy source when society and the world’s political institutions embrace a paradigm shift and support further research. A solution is within our grasp, but we must be willing to take the necessary steps to reach our goal. 

Mankind’s total dependence on fossil fuel is drawing to a close. 

In the next few years alone billions of dollars will be made by the energy industry, and this explains the lack of interest in seeking an alternative to fossil fuels and nuclear power. Only when these resources have become so scarce that they no longer represent a reliable energy source, or their impact upon the environment has become so devastating that mankind is in fear for its very existence, will a change take place. It is improbable that reason and conscience will prevail over corporate greed. 

But in the end, it will be impossible to put a stop to the revolutionary developments waiting on the horizon – especially when one considers that time and the forces of the universe always favor transformation and progress to a higher level. We can shape the future with knowledge, or we can deny and suppress the truth. The decision is ours to make, but:

“He who is ignorant of the truth is merely a fool. He who knows it and calls it a lie is a criminal.” Galileo Galilei
