LETTER FROM WIN LAMBERTSON, PH.D.: FOLLOW THE MONEY
LETTER FROM WIN LAMBERTSON, PH.D.
FOLLOW THE MONEY
Hal Fox, Editor of New Energy News, posed the question of "How do you get such new concepts of aether-like, subtle fields, having velocities many times the speed of light accepted by the skeptical scientific community?" in the March, 1998 issue of NEN. My answer is: "follow the money." In the same issue, reports were given on a radioactive waste alert at Hanford, Washington; a Nuclear Waste Fund now totaling $14 billion; the importation of half of the United States crude oil which accounts for 40% of our total energy usage; a projected nuclear waste cost of $75 billion per year; a proposed $6.3 billion per year for more fuel-efficient cars; the work of Dr. Inomata on the Science of Consciousness; and my $1200 per year expenditures to collect energy from the vacuum continuum, ZPE. What can we do to change this one sided distribution of funding & experimental efforts?
Since formation of the guilds of the Middle Ages, mankind has used extensive resources to restrict and channel wealth and trade to those favored groups which are perceived to have the skills and resources to produce something of value. It is not our role to try to change the behavior of man. I propose reducing the $212 billion United States electric power business to $106 billion by changing it to the ZPE source and to share the savings with the user customers and those stockholders who fund the changeover. This will generate a profit of $53 billion a year and a high rate of return on the investment. This changeover, will result in large and unknown amounts of stranded costs. The costs will be minimized if the changeover is funded by our present utility industry rather than venture capitalists. The changeover will be of benefit to utility stockholders who lead in the change rather than to those who oppose this change.
My present estimate, based on a small ZPE research model, is that an investment of $25 million per year for five years will lead to a break-even position. I have been advised to seek funds from those organizations which are able to take a tax reduction from their investment. Thus their investment costs are reduced by about one-half. If the electric utility industry chooses not to change (and it is unnatural for one to want to reduce their market by half), a group of private investors will have to be organized.
March 31, 1998, Associate Press writer, Rob Wells, reported that in 1994 there were 1,137 Americans making more than $200,000 a year who didn't pay a cent in federal income tax. It is a very small group, only 0.102 percent of the taxpayers, but this is the group we need to approach. They accomplished their task by taking advantage of incentives to further specific social or economic goals. New energy development qualifies for those goals.
When just one of the New Energy goals succeeds commercially, then the money will flow into that field. ZPE for electric power is the furthest along and is logically the one in which to concentrate our effort. We will then have the muscle to influence the U.S. Department of Energy. Hal reported their 1999 budget request of $18.9 billion. This budget request can be reduced by half just by the availability of ZPE and other new-energy technologies for radioactive waste treatment. Once that is accomplished, the space program can be overhauled by going to antigravity vehicles.
Costs for the Department of Defense will be reduced dramatically by using ZPE for land, water propulsion, and (perhaps) antigravity for air vehicles. The communication industry is going to have to deal with their stranded costs as communication without wire or fiber will be replaced by using the vacuum. The next step could be the Department of Health. We will build on Dr. Inomata's foundation and learn to use ZPE for healing purposes.
Resistance to change is to be expected at each step of the way. Present day scientists may hang on until they retire but members of the new generation of young engineers are searching for ways to get into the New Energy field and still be able to make a living. The money is going to flow into this field because the potential profits are there. Scientists and engineers will "follow the money?"

Editor's Note: Dr. Lambertson may be optimistic about antigravity, faster-than-light communication, and health, but he is right on to expect resistance to change.
