I ran across this interesting article and it really needs to be shared, and commented upon here, for it raises so many issues of an historical and geopolitical nature:

Germany Hits Record In Solar Power With 50% Of Energy During Mid-Day Hours

This article prompts so many questions and observations I don't really know where to begin, but let's begin with an assumption, and a little history.

First, the assumption: let's assume the article is true (and there's really no reason to assume otherwise, until later, as we shall see), and that Germany does indeed receive half of its energy needs during peak consumption hours from solar power.

Now let's do some history: why is it Germany that is doing this? The article gives us some standard, now-well-rehearsed reasons: the most dynamic economy in the western world (forget about the western satellite, Japan, in this regard, after Fukushima), far-sighted decisions by its leaders to develop alternative sources of energy in the wake of Fukushima, and so on. But the answers lie much deeper in history, and deeper in German geopolitical realities. The industrial revolution found Germany quickly competing with the other big industrial economies of the day, the United Kingdom and the United States. Unlike them, however, Germany had no easy access to petroleum, but had plenty of access to coal, and thus coal became Germany's mainstay fuel. Even the Kaiser's Hochseeflotte (High Seas Fleet) and its battleships were, unlike other navies, coal-powered, giving German battleships with their coal bunkers a much stouter "staying" power defensively than their British counterparts. But World War One exposed strategic weakenesses with the British embargo. Crucial strategic materials were in short supply.

Answer: what could not be supplied had to be created. The German chemicals industry found ways to produce nitrogen for explosives, and so on. But the lesson of the World War One Kaiserreich lived on...into the Third Reich. During the inter-war period and during the Second World War, the Nazis, as I and other researchers have detailed, established a number of secretive agencies to deal with the energy problem. I.G. Farben of course negotiated license agreements with American companies for the technology to produce petroleum from coal. But at a deeper level, entities like the Kammlerstab, the Forschung, Entwicklung, und Patente (headed by the mysterious SS Obergruppenfuehrer Emil Mazuw, about whom we know next to nothing to this day), the SS Entwicklungstelle IV, were busily working on what we would now call "free energy." One need only look at the claims of Dr. Ronald Richter that Henry Stevens and I have outlined in our books to realize that he was talking about "cold fusion" decades in advance of Pons and Fleischmann.

So from a geopolitical and historical point of view, Germany is doing nothing new, but pursuing a policy that has been in place since the Imperial period.

Which raises the contemporary questions. Our own media outlets in this country have decried the attempts to rely on wind power, and the scandals surrounding the Obama administration's heavy financial backing of solar power companies, plus a spate of articles on the low cost-to-dividend and efficiency ratios for solar and wind power that are often reported, make one question the claim that Germany can rely on these sources -wind and solar - that are reported. Yet, on the other hand, the German government has indeed definitely moved away from its long backing of nuclear power, publicly, and has indeed publicly stated it will move to wind and solar. Farsighted leadership? Not really, just standard fare, given German geopolitical position and history.

What one really must ask here is why no one else in the West's governments seems to be similarly far-sighted, and why, indeed, Germany seems to be getting so much energy from these sources. It isn't the technological claim, in other words, that disturbs me, it is the quantity of energy allegedly delivered by solar power that raises the questions: (1) are we in the rest of the West being lied to about solar capabilties? or (2) is the German government lying about it, or worse (3) do the Germans know something about solar energy that no one else does, and they're simply not talking (except maybe to France and Russia)? or, on the ridiculous end: is all of Germany paved over with solar cells (for that's the degree of inefficiency that some of our own talking heads seem to attribute to it)?

This is an intriguing story, and like all stories associated with Europe these days, it bears watching. Once again, Germany is making a bid for "energy independence" and the last time that happened ...well.... the Powers that Were Elsewhere in Europe and America weren't too pleased about it... but the last time, it was Hitler and Stalin... this time it's a lot different folks, this time, it's Merkel and Putin... and the same axis of evil(to borrow a phrase) in the City of London and New York.... And if Berlin is really getting this much of its energy needs from solar, you can bet they're paying attention in New Delhi and Beijing too...

And on the brighter side, just think: Dr. Rossi in Italy and his cold fusion experiments, which even got the attention of NASA, Germany going solar, Japan making (or rather, ABOUT to make) cars running on water, until the Fukushima disaster, the Shanghai accords... it's probably many a sleepless night in Pocantico...

See you on the flip side...

      roposals for the development of weaponry based on futuristic concepts will be ready by December this year to be included in the next state arms procurement program, Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov said on Thursday.

      “The development of weaponry based on new physics principles; direct-energy weapons, geophysical weapons, wave-energy weapons, genetic weapons, psychotronic weapons, etc., is part of the state arms procurement program for 2011-2020,” Serdyukov said at a meeting with Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.

      “We will draft the proposals for the next program by December 2012,” he said.

    Let’s see what Alliance 90/The greens leader Jürgen Trittin will report, when he comes back from Bilderberg meeting.

    I have doubts about the numbers given in the above article. Here are some official estimations of german federal ministry for environment …… They speak about a share of 20 % renewable energies (the whole bundle) in the total consumption of electric energy.

    The only solar panels I`ve noticed in Berlin are used for parking meters. At the same time many of the people in my building are still heating their apartments with coal burning heaters like the ones you see in the classic photo of a german woman burning worthless money to keep warm in the 1930s.

  5. Jay on June 2, 2012 at 11:29 pm

    Actually from reading Stevens and Farrell, Richter was talking about hot fusion (akin to Farnsworth’s FUSOR), not Cold Fusion which involves a significantly different, and cheaper, set up.

    Electro static compression, etc, not palladium doped with heavy water–big difference.

  6. bdw on June 2, 2012 at 7:45 pm

    I agree: either solar technology is WAY better than what the general public knows about, or . . . .

    They’re getting their electricity from something else, and just SAYING that it comes from solar.

    I looked into solar about 10 years ago, and if I covered the entire roof of my house with solar panels I would have decreased my electric bill by 10%, maybe 15%. So for approximately $20,000 cash up front, I get $10/month off my electric bill. No way is that worth it.

    Unless the numbers are fake (OK, maybe things have changed in the last 10 years, but I doubt it). No way for us to know if the real knowledge is kept secret.

    The petroleum based economy was jammed down the world’s throat with a world war. Which also enabled the monopoly of the same world order that’s always been at the strings end of puppet mastering energy; from wood, to coal, to oil, and god knows where. It helps the control the money monoploy as well as the coming food monopoly.
    So the BRICS got a way to counter the above, especially in the economies of scale that China brings to the table.

    But there is a zero-point energy under the x-mass tree. It’s been x-mass for a very, very few for sometime.

    So when is x-mass for the masses.

    • Robert Barricklow on June 2, 2012 at 7:22 pm

      Just finished On The edge with Max keiser which focuses explicitly on China-US financial relations. Very interesting up-to-date goings on. But at about 20 minutes in they talk about the Asian “Fish Wars”. Totally off my radar screen, and extrememy interesting:

      • Jay on June 2, 2012 at 11:36 pm

        I’d suggest you read about the Greek who stole fire from the “gods”, before making claims about oil being an enforced energy source of the last 100 years.

        It’s the whole mindset of burning equals energy that’s the problem, and that’s a good bit older the refinement of oil into gasoline etc.

        And yes the heat of nuclear fusion would be problematic too.

        • Robert Barricklow on June 3, 2012 at 9:08 am

          Quite correct.
          Still, they want control.
          Monopolizing markets is one of their modus operandis. To money money & energy are two key elements esstential to this worldwide control.
          Insruments vital to keep this “staus-quo” are intelligence/police/prison/state

          There, then, is the zero point energy.

          But are many factions are implementing it’a actual use?
          Are others “zeroing” in on it?

    they have solar arrays printed with laser jet printers 4 layers of readily available ink and viola a solar array. As long as they can make it sunshine and with computer modelling software they know where it shines the most. With weather modification they can make it shine all day and rain only at night..

    Lastly Polish history was re written after WWI. Poland had the best scientists in the world.

        I found your statement to be true. All I ever heard about Poland growing up was dumb Polish Jokes. Marginalized Poles>?

        My first wife was half Polish and I lived on a short street that was all Polish. The thing that amazes me about them is the ‘GRAPEVINE.” I guess living under dictatorships they have learned how to get messages around really fast without using the customary media channels. You don’t have to live in a small town to feel like one is in a fishbowl….Just live amongst Poles? in a way it is a good thing when it comes to raising children. In a way busibodied-ness and snoops give the elderly something to occupy their time? But if you like privacy don’t hang outside?

  10. James on June 2, 2012 at 4:54 pm

    Ya know Joseph if I wanted to develop so called ” free energy” Solar and or wind would be a good place to start at least ‘on the surface’!

    But there are other things going on like say “magnetic motors”or which are over unity engines that produce more power then they actually use. Then there is another motor under development now Check out Eagle Research you have to dig a little bit uses I think they said inert gasses? But also cold fusion!

    So the average person who can’t afford these professionally made models for Solar and wind arrays! Well guess what? There are cheaper ways to go if you can make your own Solar and wind combined with some of these other experimental idea’s even some Tesla Type aether collecting generators.

    You see so on the surface in Germany you see Solar but what is going on underneath? Or behind the scenes kind of like how pick pockets will work one you can see while the other one is stealing your wallet.

    As in Solar may be “the front” but how do we not know what is going on behind the scenes and or sort of “propping up that solar” to continue more radical free energy technologies venues from behind the scenes.

  12. Ethan on June 2, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    I do know that I’ve seen houses in Germany with roofs that are just massively covered with solar panels. Especially farmers with large barns.

    But.. this is certainly not every house.. or 1 in 2 , 3 , 10 and the percentage of their total amount of energy is huge, given that Germany is not a country which runs on a few kilowatts.


    And finally a nice overview map:

  14. Awake on June 2, 2012 at 9:47 am

    Yes, everyone is lieing about solar. And wind power is a waste of money and land use. Only reason wind power trumps solar in U.S. talks is because it can be monopolized and solar can’t. The latest solar panels are cheap in materials and manufacturing costs and time, but cost a fortune as to supress their availability. They have become super efficient and when married to new cheap and easy to make nano super bateries, which are also rediculously expensive to supress their availability, they could easily lead to the demise and need for a central, controllable, corporate grid. Germany and a few Asian countries are bucking the Global Cabels proabition of these new technologies but just aren’t bragging about it and lamestream media is not covering it. We’ve got batteries the size of five gallon buckets that can power several houses a couple days that have 30-50 yrs life expectancy. They cost tens of thousands of dollars but you can likly make them yourself for less than a hundred dollars worth of materials and little bit of time.

  15. MattB on June 2, 2012 at 6:48 am

    I wonder if they have zero-point energy but cover it with ‘solar’ etc?

    The frustrating thing is that here in Australia, we get probably more high intensity sunlight than anybody (though we are in a big wet cycle), our scientists and private/independent researchers have been saying for years that solar is viable and sustainable for mass usage——–but no we have to have coal because the bloody mining industry says it is impossible to have sustainable solar-Bulls@%t

    You have to give Germans credit, they don’t stuff around with genius ideas and ignore their researchers, they just go and do it.

  16. Jay on June 2, 2012 at 5:57 am

    Cold Fusion was first noticed in Paris in the 1930s, which ties in with …

    Doesn’t mean that the Germans, or others, haven’t developed it.

    Re Solar today: there are a much more efficient systems, in fact that’s what the failed Solyndra was doing in the US–but it wasn’t the gear that was the problem; it was cheap Chinese imports. But who knows of course the Germans could simply be lying about the source this electricity.But where would they hide the actual powerplants? Inside an old nuclear plant’s turbine
    room, underground adjacent to existing generation facilities? This stuff has to plug in to the grid for distribution–that is until I can get my home Moray device up and running.

    Back to solar, it needs to be stored if not immediately distributed for use.

    • MattB on June 2, 2012 at 7:26 am

      “Back to solar, it needs to be stored if not immediately distributed for use.”

      Surplus energy can be stored in hydrogen and used at a later date.

      If you examine the statistics concerning Germany’s increase in solar output, you see some remarkable leaps:

      • Jay on June 2, 2012 at 11:14 am

        But then you have to deal with conversion to hydrogen, storing the hydrogen, transporting it and then, unless planning to burn it for heat, reconverting it to electricity.

        The battery tech asserted by Awake above seems much more promising, but I don’t see a link.

        And frankly solar pales in comparison to other technologies, and their use in Germany is more than hinted at here.
