Conference on Future Energy

Washington, DC, August 29, 2006 -- As the the threat of global climate change caused by fossil fuels looms on the horizon, remedies for future energy technologies are being presented by Integrity Research Institute at a two-day conference to be held September 22-24, 2006 at the Sheraton College Park just North of the Washington Beltway on I-95 at Exit 29B. The Conference on Future Energy (COFE - pronounced "Co-fee") is the second in the series, with the first one held in 1999, originally scheduled for the State Department Secretary's Open Forum.

Progressive ideas abound at the second international future energy conference with presentations by top scientists, professors, attorneys, entrepreneurs, doctors, engineers and inventors from three countries. Presenting showcase developments during the Plenary Sessions on Saturday, September 23rd, COFE2 offers an exciting renewable energy innovation called a "tidal power electric generator" developed by Blue Energy Canada with Martin Burger, CEO. One of these 20 MW vertical-axis Ocean Turbines operates off the coast of Nova Scotia, with the assistance of the University of British Columbia.

Dr. George Miley, University of Illinois professor, will be reviewing his experiments with Plasma Focus Fusion electric power generation. This is the fourth type of fusion (also called "proton-boron" fusion) that was most often disregarded as too difficult to attain, until Sandia Labs recently broke the billion-degree barrier recently with their "Z-Pinch" fusion reactor. Now Dense Plasma Focus Fusion, which has four times the output of conventional magnetic confinement fusion and no radiation, suddenly has gained more attention, since it has surpassed the same temperature barrier with a much simpler and more economical design.

Dennis Bushnell, Chief Scientist at NASA Langley Research Center, will be presenting on post-petroleum energetics and also agriculture that can be sustained by seawater irrigation. James Dunn, from NASA's Center for Technology Commercialization, will be reviewing fuel cell developments, his own electric airplane, the first of its kind, as well as many other emerging energy inventions he has personally investigated. David Goodwin, from the US Department of Energy, will give a report on the government's fission and fusion research.

Glen Gordon, MD, will be discussing his discovery of a therapeutic electromagnetic pulse generation for intercellular fluid mobilization and therapy, with arguments for a future energy medicine transition. Dr. Gordon, aged 69, is famous for curing himself of congestive heart failure with the that he invented and then bicycling across the country, while appearing on TV and radio talk shows. He also worked with Dr. Donald Jaueisen during the development and patenting of the device, which moves biological fluid congestion through short, powerful magnetic pulses, with the fastest rise-time in the field.

Dr. Fabrizio Pinto, formerly of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, will be the keynote speaker during the award banquet on Saturday night, followed by a live concert pianist performance by Erika Monteith. Dr. Pinto's specialty is nanotechnology utilizing quantum principles of zero-point energy and the Casimir force, with a number of patents and journal publications to his credit. He has discovered that propulsion as well as electricity generation on the quantum scale is theoretically allowed by the present laws of thermodynamics. Dr. Pinto is the President and CEO of . Dr. Thorsten Ludwig, from the German Association for Space Energy, will be presenting on the European developments in the same area of quantum zero-point energy.

On Sunday, Emerging Sessions include Dr. Tania Slawecki, on sabbatical from Pennsylvania State University, will be discussing their work with tests on electromagnetic therapy devices or energy medicine. She is a Materials Science Research Professor who has worked with NIST and served as Director of her State's Center for Sustainability. Presentations on Wankel Motors, Catalytic Energy Science, Antigravity Development, Intellectual Property Strategy for Emerging Energy, and Future Energy Technologies are on the list.

A screening of the movie, "Who Killed the Electric Car?" will be shown on Friday night to open the Conference on Future Energy, at the Loews AMC Theatre on Powder Mill Road next door to the Sheraton College Park.

Conference attendees are encouraged to take advantage of the last few days of the very affordable, discounted conference rates available from IRI 202-452-7674 and the Sheraton 301-937-4422, ending September 1st. Early-bird discount registration for the conference and hotel conference rates will both expire after September 1st. More information is available, including a free copy of Future Energy magazine, at and also by calling 202-452-7674 or toll-free 800-295-7674 anytime 24 hours a day. The Conference on Future Energy is Metro-accessible to save energy, from the Greenbelt Metro station, by calling the Sheraton for free shuttle service. The Sheraton College Park Hotel is located at 4095 Powder Mill Road, Beltsville, MD 20740 on Rt. 212 off the I-95 interstate expressway connecting Washington and Baltimore. It is also about 30 minutes from BWI or Reagan National airports. See the COFE2 poster included below which colorfully summarizes the event.
