The San Francisco Tesla Society

Presents a free presentation featuring

Rob States, M.S., P.E.

"Peak Oil & Its Alternatives"

Sunday, November 13, 2005  1 - 5 p.m. at

Round Table Pizza
Banquet Room on 2nd Floor
5160 Geary Blvd. (at 16th Ave.)
San Francisco, California

Rob States, M.S., P.E., is a graduate of the University of Colorado and MIT, with a total of three MS degrees, and 30 years of experience as a consulting engineer in the field of applied mechanics.   Although his career embraces conventional ME subjects, he maintains an active interest in alternative science, and recognizes how academia, corporations, and conventional R&D establishments are unprepared to develop breakthrough energy technologies. 

Rob will outline the economics of peak oil, and how industries react to it.  Then, alternative technologies to oil will be reviewed including those already developed (like wind and ethanol) and those needing more research (like cold fusion and Tesla towers).   These technologies will be summarized for a layman audience.  Lastly, speculative technologies (like the Lazar and Hamel motors) will be covered.
