The Next Giant Leap proposes solutions to resource scarcity and climate change. It outlines blueprints for a system, Universal Energy, that can accomplish this task by deploying the best energy technologies we have available into a framework that’s designed to work cooperatively from the ground-up.

Universal Energy’s purpose is to revolutionize how we power our civilization and acquire resources, while at the same time heal the widespread environmental damage humanity has inflicted on our planet.

The Next Giant Leap proposes solutions to resource scarcity and climate change. It outlines blueprints for a system, Universal Energy, that can accomplish this task by deploying the best energy technologies we have available into a smart, cooperating framework.
Universal Energy works through a combination of four technologies:
  • Integrated Renewables

    Universal Energy integrates renewable power directly within city infrastructure. This avoids the need to buy expensive additional land and enables integration closest to where electricity is consumed. It also reduces the demand municipalities place on electric grids, which can eventually transform cities into power plants.

    Universal Energy integrates renewables directly within cities. This avoids the need to buy expensive land and can help turn cities into power plants.

  • Thorium Power

    Thorium is an advanced source of atomic energy that avoids the safety, proliferation, and waste concerns of our current approach to nuclear power. Small, modular and capable of mass production, next-generation reactors can generate immense energy to power our society and indefinitely produce vital resources.

    Thorium is an advanced type of nuclear fuel that avoids today's problems with nuclear power. It affords abundant extra heat that can be used to produce resources.

  • Water and Hydrogen

    The abundance of low-cost energy from integrated renewables and thorium reactors enable the inexpensive desalination of seawater into fresh water on a massive scale. In turn, this water can be used to produce effectively unlimited volumes of hydrogen fuel.

    An abundance of energy from renewables and thorium allow us to desalinate seawater into fresh water and extract unlimited volumes of hydrogen fuel.

  • The National Aqueduct

    The National Aqueduct is a system designed to transport billions of gallons of fresh water across our nation through publicly owned highways and high-tension power lines. By leveraging internal hydroelectric turbines, integrated renewables and hot water, it can generate and store energy while ending drought.

    The National Aqueduct is designed to generate and store energy by transporting billions of gallons of fresh, desalinated water across our nation.

A new approach to energy generation and resource production

The combination of these four technologies, working together as a team, enable a massive abundance of inexpensive energy that can be harnessed to produce the five essential resources for human civilization:

Water. Food. Electricity. Fuel. Building Materials.

Universal Energy accomplishes this goal by leveraging three critical concepts:

Made possible only by recent breakthroughs in computing, material science and computer-aided manufacturing, this approach transforms our ability to generate energy and synthetically produce resources. It also allows us to solve global problems and power systems that can dramatically improve our way of life:

Made possible only by recent technological breakthroughs and achievements, this approach transforms our ability to generate energy and produce resources. It also allows us to solve global problems and dramatically improve our way of life:
  • Sustainable and Clean

    • Major reducer of conflict and humanitarian crises.

    • Allows for transformational opportunities in next-generation manufacturing.

    • Enables the widespread cleanup of waste and our global environment.

  • Immense energy potential

    Universal Energy's target is 300% of our national energy consumption, at a cost reduction of 82%. This allows us to generate enough low-cost energy to clean our atmosphere of greenhouse gasses, and synthesize vital resources to effectively unlimited scales.

  • Economical and Transformative

    • Costs fractions of wasteful military expenditures and presents far greater value.

    • Extensive potential to revitalize American manufacturing.

    • Global opportunities to market scarcity and climate-mitigation technologies.
