NIKOLA TESLA ADVOCATE AND SPEAKER, POLISH-AMERICAN DONALD LESIAK, P.E., PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER AND ROBOTICS ENGINEER, PROPOSES “TESLA POWER PLANT” AT THE SITE OF THE CLEVELAND, OHIO USA MUNICIPAL POWER PLANT - dated Sunday, June 4, 2006
It seems to me that for years, many of those who are passionate about Nicola Tesla speak only about his great accomplishments that occurred in the past during his lifetime. We know his great inventions were way ahead of his time and have actually helped us to get to where we are today economically and technologically in many of our Countries of the World. However, TODAY, this is not enough and TODAY we must prepare the “Youth of Today” and the “Future Generations of Tomorrow” by “MAKING HISTORY NOW” and in the future, and not just by talking about the past. We must do this by doing something constructive NOW, and which we should define and schedule to make it all happen SOON, and of course fund it!
As President/CEO of The International Profit And Growth Engineers, dba TIP-AGE CONSULTANTS – USA our mission as “Productivity Consultants” is to “Make the Sun Stand Still” just like the Polish Astronomer Nicolas Copernicus did about 531 years ago when he discovered that the “Planets Rotate About the Sun, Not the Earth” which was then proven by the invention of the telescope. Another concept not talked about much but is also part of our “Mission Statement” is “Mind Over Matter” (author unknown). Our philosophy is “Profit and Growth by Plan, not by Chance”, “TODAY IS TOMORROW”, and Pleasing Your Boss, the CUSTOMER, YOU”. Starting here today at St. Sava’s Serbian Orthodox Church in Parma, Ohio USA, I believe that “TOGETHER, WE CAN MAKE THE SUN STAND STILL” with the help of God Almighty.
When we assess our current World situation as to where we are now, and NOW define where we want to GO along with HOW we are going to get there gives all of us the capability of helping all of Mankind on Earth, and maybe even the rest of the Universe. “What’s wrong with the Uncommon, Common Good of the People for a Change, Worldwide and then throughout the Universe?”
It is for these reasons that I now propose the upgrade of the Cleveland Municipal Power Plant by utilizing “TESLA TECHNOLOGY” to enable the transmission of electric power through the air or ground “WITHOUT WIRES” like Tesla did in Colorado Springs, Colorado USA from 1899 to 1900. With 107 years of technology advancement since then, I believe “We have a sporting chance”. This is what then USA NASA Rocket Engineer Dr. Werner Von Braun said to then President John F. Kennedy when he asked Dr. Von Braun about the “Probability of Man going to the Moon and returning safely” and it was accomplished in July 1969.
Having worked as a Consulting Engineer at RCA in Burlington, Massachusetts USA on the NASA Apollo Moon Shot Program, we got built to NASA White Room Specifications the 1st Digital Black Box that throttled the final Descent Engine successfully (automatically or manually as was required). It was officially called the Apollo Descent Engine Control Assembly (DECA).
It is with this kind of vision that I propose that the City of Cleveland’s Municipal Electric Power Plant be upgraded to a “Tesla Power Plant” and when we begin transmitting electric power through the air “just like our cell phones”, we will then be able to remove the gasoline engines and gas tanks from automobiles, trucks and replace them with electric motors in each wheel and also eliminate the transmission. How about no fuel tanks in airplanes, and maybe eliminate rocket engines and rocket fuel tanks in rockets and space ships and power them with electricity without wires. And how about laptop computers without batteries? This is what I and others have called “possibility thinking”. (Author unknown)
The recently announced U.S. Department of Energy’s $1.2 Billion “FutureGen Project” is not as efficient as it might be because of its requirement to produce “Hydrogen” to replace gasoline engines and gas tanks with an all “Electric Car” driven by “Hydrogen” hungry fuel cells.
The “FutureGen” Project sacrifices efficiency “BIG TIME” and produces “BIG TIME COSTS” to produce “Hydrogen” as an oil/gasoline replacement and all of this requires an expensive infrastructure to deliver it for various uses, and “GROSS” system process inefficiencies result from bottom to top on a total system basis.
The automobile manufacturing companies worldwide today are probably pushing hard to make their cars all electric in anticipation of the arrival of Hydrogen Fuel Cells, but the questions that remain are how much will it cost and how soon will it happen? I believe using the Tesla concepts of transmitting electric power through air to an ANTENNA AND POWER RECEIVER” in many kinds of vehicles is simpler and would provide a greater return on investment (ROI) for all of us. Again, “What’s Wrong with the Uncommon, Common Good of the People for a Change, Worldwide?” Let the automobile companies and others continue to go all electric in their products because when they get done we will replace their Hydrogen infrastructure and Fuel Cells with a grossly more efficient system that Nicola Tesla envisioned over 100 years ago. Again, together this is “Mind Over Matter” (author unknown).
Now, when this happens, OPEC Countries will not have to ship oil around the World. All they will have to do is build TESLA ELECTRICAL TRANSMITTING TOWERS in their oil fields and away they go laughing all the way to the bank. You could also do this wherever “Natural Gas” fields are located in place of shipping “Liquid Natural Gas” around the World.
In conclusion, “Opportunities never come to those who wait, but are captured by those who dare to go ahead” (author unknown) and with God’s help, anything is possible.
