Global Warming is the increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s near-surface air and oceans since the mid-20th. Century and its projected continuations.
Global Surface temperature increased 0.74 ± 0.18 °C during the 100 years ending in 2005. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concludes that most of the temperature increase since the mid-twentieth century is “very likely” due to the increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations.
For a long time it has been known that the cleanest energy that exists is solar power – energy from the sun. It is abundant and replenishable – at least, it won’t run out for four or five billion years.
But solar power has a big – and obvious – drawback: It doesn’t work if there’s no sunlight. And in far northern or southern latitudes – especially in winter when days are short – lack of light has been a real stumbling block. Which is what makes the light electric and thermal generator – or LETG – so exciting. The LETG is able to significantly increase efficiency while simultaneously reducing cost. That means the LETG has the potential to greatly extend what solar power can deliver.
The patented GEM – for Generator/Engine/Motor – is a revolutionary design that increases engine efficiency by up to 16 times. Simply stated, it completely changes the game with respect to energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. A team of physicists and engineers spent almost a year just doing the physics and design work including computer modeling before any parts were built.
GEM utilizes a rotary design that reduces friction and eliminates wasteful engine component movements. While conventional piston engines waste energy on separate intake and exhaust cycles, the GEM’s rotary design enables continuous cycling in which one stage naturally segues into the next.
