IRI provided an important stimulus package to help educate the public
about new energy developments, as you can see in this issue of Future Energy
eNews "Review of COFE3 Conference."
Advanced Energy Panelist Hagen Ruff, CEO of Chava Energy, stated that we
assembled an "impressive collection of brain power" which he explained is the
focus of his determination to organize into a energy research facility on the
West Coast with a suitable funding package.
COFE3 was the first conference in the world to have an alternative
nuclear fusion panel discussion. To emphasize the quality of the fusion
panelists, a great endorsement to the conference is the follow-up October 22nd
article in The Economist magazine reprinted below describing Fusion Panelist
Eric Lerner's amazing hydrogen-boron alternative "focus fusion" invention which
IRI helped incorporate into a business. As Eric explains in his lecture on DVD,
focus fusion is the only type of fusion that creates electricity directly AND
creates no neutron radiation. He also has crossed the milestone of the billion
degree temperature necessary to achieve aneutronic fusion.
The University of Missouri's nuclear battery in this FE eNews edition
also deserves mention since COFE1 in 1999 included Paul Brown's presentation
on this same type of nuclear battery using tritium which Paul had patented a
couple of years prior to the conference.
Since both of these inventions show how IRI tends to be several years
ahead of its time, you will want to order the Proceedings of COFE3 as well as
the conference DVDs to get the real inside scoop on emerging future energy. Your
membership is also invited to help support this vital work for the benefit of
