From the time of Nikola Tesla to today, occasionally someone discovers how to tap into a 24/7 source of unlimited clean energy that could replace coal, oil, gas and nuclear power.

In the past many innovators encountered obstacles – threats, destructive business partners, bodily harm, lack of resources, and sometimes self-sabotage. But a new generation of energy researchers is determined to change all that.

Hear what journalist Jeane Manning has learned in the past 30 years as she travelled worldwide to get the big picture of the “energy underground.”

Manning is a magazine columnist and author and co-author of several notable books including Breakthrough Power: How Quantum-leap New Energy Inventions Can Transform Our World, a silver medal winner in the Independent Publishers competition, as the ‘2009 Outstanding Book of the Year’ in the category “Most Likely to Save the Planet.”
