Supposedly, this was a fuel-less, super-efficient electricity
generator which DePalma called the N machine. Based on my information,
this device apparently extracts energy directly from what is lately
called the zero point vacuum fluctuation energy field.
Allegedly, this new genre of zero point energy technology
needs no fuel, is freely available, and is free of pollution.
Assuming this is true, obviously this technology would entirely
replace fossil and nuclear power and form the foundation of the
optimal national, even international, energy policy.
More recently, the newspaper articles, videotapes, and
rumors which sparked my initial interest in this topic have been
supplemented by numerous zero point internet Web sites.
I won't now bother you with the specifics of the informational
sources, but unless my question is resolved, I will submit my
informational sources in a forthcoming written comment before
the February 27th deadline.
Perhaps my first question would best be directed to Ms.
Monlyn because, assuming my information is correct, she has some
familiarity with this subject on this point. On this point, I
wonder whether DOE has fully investigated this alleged zero point
technology. And, if so, where are the results of this investigation
Secondly, if the DOE has not fully debunked the zero point
technology, I would like to ask Secretary Pena why no comprehensive
examination of zero point technology has been concluded.
SECRETARY PENA: Thank you very much, Mr. Thomas.
Let me see if there is someone from the DOE team here who
might be able to answer your question about this particular issue.
Anybody? All right. We'll get back to you in writing on that question.
MR. THOMAS: Okay.
SECRETARY PENA: Thank you.
MR. THOMAS: Thank you.
MODERATOR WALKER: Next up is Mr. Dave Goldstein,
who is the President of Electric Vehicle Association.
MR. GOLDSTEIN: Thank you, Mr. Secretary,
Mr. Gee, members of the panel. This is a wonderful
teacher the late Bruce DePalma.
