Tesla's World System activates the Earth's renewable electrical storage battery, which normally sits dormant except during lightning strikes. Regarding simply the electrostatic energy storage capacity of the ionosphere, Dr Oleg Jefimenko, author of Electrostatic Motors, explains that during one electrical storm, the atmospheric electric field dissipates at least 0.2 terawatts (billion kilowatts), indicating that the entire Earth must have even more total available energy."
Furthermore, the power loss experienced by Tesla's pulsed electrostatic discharge mode of propagation was less than five per cent over 25,000 miles. Dr Van Voorhies states that "path losses are 0.25 dB/Mm at 10 Hz" —which is so minimal it is difficult to believe for engineers who are used to transverse waves, a resistive medium and line-of-sight propagation modes that can dissipate 10 dB/km at 5 MHz.-''
The capacitive dome of the Wardenclyffe Tower, like the conductive balloon of Tesla's patent #645,576, is a key to understanding the longitudinal waves. Dr Rauscher quotes Tesla: "Later he compared it to a Van de Graaff generator. He also explained the purpose of Wardenclyffe: '...one does not need to be an expert to understand that a device of this kind is not a producer of electricity like a dynamo, but merely a receiver or collector with amplifying qualities'."!l
Only a few great physicists, like Dr Elizabeth Rauscher, Dr James Corum and Dr Konstantin Meyl," have realised that Tesla was very practical when he proposed the resonant generation and wireless transmission of useful electrical power. Tesla's knowledge of atmospheric electricity transduction was so extensive and reliable that, said Jim Corum (who has been funded to continue Tesla's work): "You just have to do exactly what Tesla did and you will consistently get the same results he did.""
After returning from his experiments at Colorado Springs in 1900, Nikola Tesla stated: "If we use fuel to get our power, we are living on our capital and exhausting it rapidly. This method is barbarous and wantonly wasteful and will have to be stopped in the interest of coming generations."24
In view of our present fossil-fuel-caused global warming, Tesla seems very prophetic from his vantage point of a century ago.
