James WallerstedtJW-Mt-Shasta

James is the Founder of the New Energy Declaration project and got involved in Breakthrough Energy topics after meeting Dr. Brian O’Leary in Costa Rica in 2004, where James was working at the UN’s University for Peace. Subsequently, James served as Southern California Coordinator for the New Energy Movement project founded by Dr. O’Leary and others and has given dozens of in-person and online presentations on “New Energy” topics.

In 2006, James developed what became the largest collection of online resources anywhere documenting the suppression of needed Breakthrough Energy & Transportation (E&T) technologies involving abused US “national security law” (esp. Section 181, Title 35, 1951 US Invention Secrecy Act). While a topic now often discussed in Breakthrough Energy circles, when James undertook these initiatives it was virtually unknown. James has long been a proponent within influential circles of leveraging clean, best-of-breed revolutionary E&T technologies in the Section 181 portfolio within a grand GESARA-NESARA framework with related T&R and restorative justice processes to “reinvent self-governance.”

James is an entrepreneur, activist, software developer, educator and world traveler who also holds a masters degree in International Affairs from the University of California’s School of Global Policy and Strategy.

Dr. Brian O’Learybrian-oleary

Dr. Brian O’Leary, who passed away in 2011, is recognized as a leading founder of our world’s global “breakthrough energy community and movement.” In fact, the inaugural Breakthrough Energy Movement conference – held in Amsterdam in 2012 – was dedicated to Brian’s memory. Brian was an extraordinary scientist and humanitarian – and friend to several others featured on this page – who understood the pivotal importance of bringing suppressed revolutionary energy and transportation technologies into distribution.

Dr. O’Leary was a former NASA astronaut, astro-physicist and tenure-track professor of physics at both Cornell and Princeton. Click the video at the top of the right column of this page to watch Brian’s cameo in the Thrive documentary.

From the Wikipedia page for Brian;

A remote viewing experience in 1979 and a near-death experience in 1982 initiated O’Leary’s departure from orthodox science. After leaving Princeton, O’Leary worked in the space industry at Science Applications International Corporation but refused to work on military applications. O’Leary increasingly explored unorthodox ideas involving the relationship between consciousness and science, and became known for writings on “the frontiers of science, energy and culture”. He lectured extensively on science and consciousness at the Findhorn Foundation, Esalen Institute and Unity Churches. In the mid-90s, he began writing about innovative energy technologies…and how these could transform the planet. In 2003, Dr. O’Leary co-founded the New Energy Movement non-profit project. Shortly after professional colleague Eugene Mallove was murdered in 2004, he and his wife relocated to Ecuador, where they founded Montesueños Eco-Retreat. Brian continued to travel and lecture on New Energy and planetary healing topics until his passing.

Dr. Tom Hansen

Dr. Tom Hansen
Dr. Hansen is a retired educator and technology expert who lives with his wife in Charlottesville, Virginia. Tom’s interests revolve around helping clean up corruption in our US federal government and its misalignment with the founding principles of our nation. Dr. Hansen objects to excessive secrecy involving a broad range of topics of extreme importance to the public, prevented from public understanding and debate via “national security classification” abuses. Dr. Hansen believes that an open and accountable government “Of, by and for the people” is at odds with the “Secret Government” we largely have today, and that we must return to founding principles.

Tom’s main approach toward engaging the public is via music he creates and performs.  The following three tracks were written and sung by him. The first two are from his UFO Oil collection and the third is from his Remembering Peace collection.

Joel GarbonJoel Garbon

Joel has made great contributions toward increasing public awareness of the importance of the breakthrough energy topics. He was involved in the founding of New Energy Movement, a non-profit initiative co-founded by Dr. Brian O’Leary and noted environmentalist, Alden Bryant. Joel has served as President of NEM for the past decade. With Jeane Manning, Joel is co-author of Breakthrough Power, which outlines the importance of little-known breakthrough Energy and Transportation technology options.

Joel has given presentations at several Breakthrough Energy Movement conferences, including the inaugural BEM conference held in Amsterdam and the 2014 Boulder conference. Joel has given several interviews on Coast to Coast radio, hosted by George Noory, which has 3 million weekly listeners. Joel has spoken at the world’s largest annual conference on ET topics,  Contact in the Desert, and recently was Emcee of the annual Architects of the New Paradigm conference.

Paul Von Wardpaul-von-ward

Paul Von Ward is a former US State Department and former US Navy officer who holds a masters degree in Public Affairs from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. Paul is an extremely active independent scholar and researcher, philosopher and renaissance man. From his website

An interdisciplinary cosmologist and independent scholar, Paul is internationally known for the hypothesis of AB (advanced beings) intervention in human development, his theory of natural spirituality in a self-learning universe and research on survival of a personal soul-genome (ie: reincarnation). His current books on these topics are Children of a Living Universe, We’ve Never Been Alone and The Soul Genome. Paul’s academic background, his military, diplomatic and international executive career, and his research on five continents keep his provocative publications grounded in emerging science and human experience. Paul assumes our universe is multidimensional and part of a living multiverse. With an evolutionary imperative to self-actualize, its inherent processes require struggle, experimentation and adaptation.

David Yurth

There’s a saying about pioneers … you can identify them by the arrows in their back. David Yurth has been an extraordinary pioneer, inventor, scientist and entrepreneur in the revolutionary energy field for decades. He has been both attached and praised for his theoretical work involving torsion fields, a field historically led by Russian scientists. David is co-author of “The Y-Bias and Angularity Model of Fine-Scale Physical Interactions.” David is also a humanitarian, convinced that the wide distribution of breakthrough energy technologies will dramatically improve life on Earth. As such, though now in his 7th decade, he remains extremely active in trying to get out several exceptional BE technologies.

One such involves the Nova Neal Engine, a miraculous technology originally developed in the 1930s. This technology, if ever developed and allowed to come to market, could provide off-grid power for individual and community residential power schemes, not requiring any fuel or operating cost. Sterling Allen of PESN and NEST fame interviewed David about the Nova Neal technology in late-2013.  David was also interviewed in 2012 by internet media personality Lisa Harrison, speaking about his views regarding social institutions and disruptive technology.

Ken RauenKen Rauen

Ken Rauen has contributed many important insights to the global breakthrough energy community and remains an active inventor and change agent. Ken’s volunteer contributions have involved the Pure Energy Systems News reporting service and New Energy Systems Trust initiatives. Ken is also on the New Energy Movement Board of Advisors.

This PESN page outlines Heat Engine technology Ken is currently developing, now being taken forward in conjunction with AESOP Institute. Ken worked closely with the late Dr. Eugene Mallove, writing and reviewing articles for Infinite Energy magazine. Dr. Mallove, who was respected and admired for his advocacy of Cold Fusion (LENR) technology, resigned his position at MIT in protest of MIT’s misrepresentation of Cold Fusion results. Tragically, Dr. Mallove was murdered shortly before scheduled to give related congressional testimony.

An article co-written by Ken, “The Ultraviolet Catastrophes of Quantum Mechanics,” was published in the August, 2014 issue of Infinite Energy magazine. Ten years before, Ken wrote an article on related topics, The Second Law of Thermodynamics and the Pyschology of Science. We’re proud to have Ken onboard the New Energy Declaration campaign.

Jeane ManningJeane Manning, author of Breakthrough Power

Jeane has long been an influential author and networker in the Breakthrough Energy field.  She began to chronicle the New Energy scene in the 1980s, using vacation time to interview scientists in North America and Europe.  Jeane has been closely associated with New Energy Movement since its inception and was a speaker at the inaugural Breakthrough Energy Movement conference in Holland, in 2012. The MC introducing her presentation noted that Jeane has been “One of the pioneer ladies in this field, and there are not many.”

With Joel Garbon, Jeane is the co-author of Breakthrough Power, an award-winning book about humanity’s true energy sector options.  With Nick Begich, she is co-author of the seminal book, Angels Don’t Play This HAARP, which alerted the global public to dangers related to secrecy-classified uses of HAARP array technology (based upon work by Nikola Tesla; capable of altering weather patterns and human moods).  People appreciate Jeane’s ability to convey the “Big Picture” of the New Energy landscape in a way normal people can related to.  She says her pioneering contributions have been driven by her desire to see a better world for her own children and grandchildren, and everyone else in the human family.

Sacha StoneSacha Stone

Sacha has twice chaired expert panel discussions for the Global Breakthrough Energy Movement conference series. Breakthrough Energy Movement is a pivotal initiative, headquartered in Amsterdam, helping lead our world toward a much needed “free energy revolution.”

In 2009, Sacha produced the UN’s Millenium Development Goal awards at which Archbishop Desmond Tutu promoted Ubuntu concepts. In 1999, Sacha established the Humanitad project to serve as an umbrella organization to advocate the creative reinvention of our world’s media, education, science, technology, governance, and international relations sectors.

Sacha is also founder of the New Earth Nation projects, the New Earth University and the landmark natural law initiative, the International Tribunal for Natural Justice. Sacha’s personal website is

Ellen Brown Ellen Brown, Public Banking Institute

Ellen Brown is an attorney and founder of the Public Banking Institute.  She is the author of twelve books, including the best-selling Web of Debt, which many consider to be the most important and thorough review of the Fed and global banking cartel ever published.  Her latest book, The Public Bank Solution: From Austerity to Prosperity, explores successful public banking models throughout history and internationally, that can serve as models for highly needed reform of our world’s money systems.  We consider Ellen to be our world’s foremost thought leader on these important topics.

Ellen also wrote Forbidden Medicine, about suppressed cancer cures, and is a prolific author of ongoing research article on topics related to her financial reform interests.  Her many articles have been published by Global Research, Common Dreams, Huffington Post and other popular news services.  It’s an honor to have Ellen on board, endorsing the New Energy Declaration!
