I have come here for just one visit and just one purpose. To tell my story and share it with the world... What the people say about energy technology suppression at this link is true http://open.salon.com/blog/green_energy_reports/2012/04/15/censorship_-_the_only_reason_we_are_still_addicted_to_oil
A former colleague at the DoE sent me this link a few months ago http://peakoil.com/alternative-energy/plasma-battery-inventors-disappearing-regularly/ and then this one yesterday http://www.greenoptions.com/t/4205/should-technology-suppression-be-a-felony-crime-requiring-a-mandatory-5-year-prison-sentence#post_17430 This motivated me to write the following about something that I experienced in 2010. I chose this way of disclosure because I think it is the safest for my family and I. Like Tom Valone, the whistle blower from the U.S. Patent Office, I also worked for the federal government for over 42 months before I resigned (I found a better paying job with a private consulting firm). I worked for the Department of Energy at OSTI. If you don't know about OSTI visit http://www.osti.gov/. I was one of seven GS-5 and GS-7s that gathered, categorized, edited and posted program data and energy R&D, in the public database.
To be brief, in early September of 2010 our group manager called an unscheduled meeting of all the "newbies" (anyone with 2 years or less with DoE) including myself, and we were introduced to a guy in his late 40s who was supposedly "a special US Patent Office liaison". I regret that I cannot recall his name now, but he was 20 pounds overweight with glasses and bald spot. After introducing himself, he handed our team leader a big stack of patent application copies and then remained quiet for the rest of the 30 minute meeting. Our group manager told us that due to "ITAR reclassification policies" we had a priority assignment to search our OSTI database and "tag and refer" any and all topics that contained 5 of any key words or phrases we were given on a sheet of paper. In all there may have been about 80 words/phrases. I can remember some like "free energy", "cold fusion", "plasma energy", "atomic battery", "nuclear battery", "hydroxy", "Hydrogen on demand", etc.
firstname.lastname@example.org. I am 90% certain this was the email address. This was the first time that I was ever asked to do such a search of our database, but one of the veteran GS-9s told me that she had done two similar searches in the last ten years. At the time, none of this was a big deal to me – just more work to do. It took me almost two full weeks to complete my task. But looking back, this was the only group assignment we ever got without a written memo from either a deputy secretary, deputy director, or group manager. Now after knowing what I do now, I suppose they did not want any written evidence of what they decided to do – detour energy technology progress.
She even told me about a specific company called "Earthguard" that she said was located in Texas in the early1990s that developed the world's best bio-fuel that cost less than 10 cents a gallon to make. She said "the oil consultants" went nuts trying to shut them down and eventually "got some Saudis to buy-off the inventor." She said Earthguard qualified for some DoE funding assistance but that the DoE top managers concocted one excuse after another to make sure the poor bastard didn't get a dime.
P.S. You should also know that over 60% of the DoE's budget gets routed to military projects through clever wording in the budget. So not only do they deceive us, but they also deceive Congress every time they submit budget requests. And although I have no personal knowledge what other schemes the USPTO uses, I think you should read this http://www.theorionproject.org/en/suppressed.html
