WASHINGTON (AP) ―
President Barack Obama plans to deal with a Dec. 31 deadline that automatically would declassify secrets in more than 400 million pages of Cold War-era documents by ordering government-wide changes that could sharply curb the number of new and old government records hidden from the public.
There are those who also claim that Nikola Tesla 'knew nothing' about physics, etc. But I ask them to name another scientist for whom it can be said that 'the contents of his safe, two truckloads of papers and apparatus from his hotel room and laboratory occupying a whole floor, and another 75 packing crates and trunks in a storage facility, and another 80 large storage trunks in another storage facility' (say FBI papers released under the FOIA, 252 pages) have been concealed by the government for over 66 years to date, since Jan., 1943. Not one page of this huge quantity of documents and apparatus has been declassified since 1943, excepting a couple of steamer trunks of 'historical' documents (150,000 pages) which were released to Tesla's Yugoslavian heirs which represents the document collection of the present Tesla Museum in Belgrade.
From: William R. Lyne July 27, 2009 Cerro Circle Lamy, New Mexico 87540 To: Barak Obama, President of the United States of America The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW Washington, D.C. 20500 Dear Mr. President, As should be known, the future consequences predicted by competent analysts relative to the increase in oil consumption in the United States show that there is an energy crisis of unparalleled proportions looming on our horizon, which will only become progressively worse. New thinking is mandated by reality at this time, a true "industrial revolution in clean energy" as your Secretary of Energy Steven Chu says.
Do not despair and lose hope, but do not put all your eggs in this basket as it probably has a large hole in the bottom.
