About this book

Shows why we must stop using fossil fuels and evaluates a host of alternatives to arrive at a robust energy system (the Fusion-Hydrogen Energy System) that will modernize world energy production and protect the environment. A by-product of this system will ameliorate problems associated with supplying potable water and in processing waste.

Prof. T.N. Veziroglu, President, International Assoc. for Hydrogen Energy, USA In An End to Global Warming, Laurence O. Williams expounds on the benefits and advantages of the Fusion Hydrogen Energy System in a most convincing manner. I strongly recommend this book to all those interested in the establishment of a clean and sustainable energy system for the planet earth - the only one known to be hospitable to life. Dr J.C. Denton, President, Energy Associates, Belton, Texas, USA It is my strong belief that fusion power lies in our future and that the hydrogen economy is the way to proceed to use fusion energy. It is feasible to develop the infrastructure of the hydrogen economy while waiting for fusion energy to come online. Prof. J. Patrick, Professor of Chemical Eng., University of Nottingham, UK The topic of this proposed book is so hot that I have little doubt that it would sell well, especially as there are also some controversial issues involved. P.Warneck This is a well-balanced book, which assembles the many-faceted arguments in favor of abandoning the present energy system based on fosil fuels. The text is written in a straight-forward matter-of-fact style easy to digest by the educated layman. This book will be of interest to many audiences and is highly recommended reading for all persons concerned about our future. JOURNAL OF ATMOSPHERIC CHEMISTRY

Biography

Laurence O. Williams Education: BS Chemistry, Purdue University, 1961 Employment History 2002 - Chemistry Tutor, Mount Union College, Alliance Ohio Technical Consultant (Energetic Materials) to Atlantic Research Corporation, Gainesville, Virginia and Lockheed Martin Corporation, Orlando, Florida 1999 January 1 Retired from Lockheed Martin, Orlando Florida 1996- 1998 Lockheed Martin, Orlando; Staff Scientist I was an internal consultation on energetic materials and principal investigator for Independent Research and Development tasks covering new missile warheads and methods of detecting and neutralizing chemical and biological agents. 1994- 1996 Lockheed Martin Ordnance Systems Co., Burlington VT; Chief Scientist I directed Research and Development to improve Ordnance items to include gun propellants, 120mm mortar ammunition, 40mm machine gun ammunition, and Reactive Armor to protect armored personnel carriers. 1982- 1994 Martin Marietta, Orlando; Manager, Research Ordnance Department I managed a 20 man staff performing independent research and development and contract research and development concerning Reactive Materials (classified) peak contract values booked approximately $40 million. 1979- 1981 The Aerospace Corporation, Washington D. C.; Program Manager I managed the hydrogen energy program at The Aerospace Corporation. Provided consulting services to the United States Department of Energy. Supported activities in Solar Energy collection, Ocean Thermal Gradients energy sources and the production and storage of hydrogen as a method of load matching in energy systems. 1970- 1979 Martin Marietta, Denver CO; Manager, Hazardous Materials Laboratory I managed a 10 person staff performing research, development and properties testing for propellant and explosives. I developed a method to purify hydrazine for the VIKING MARS LANDER mission. The pure hydrazine became a profitable product to fuel catalytic thrusters used for station keeping in satellites. An associate and I developed an ozone generator for treatment of wastewater. I led a team that developed a manufacturing process for production of unsymmetrical dimethylhydrazine. We demonstrated a microwave spectrometer to detect of trace gases in the atmosphere. 1966- 1970 Martin Marietta, Denver CO; Research Scientist I performed research concerning propellants and explosives. Developed a new propellant binder and methods of producing ion clouds in space. In addition I supported the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the development of the gas chromatograph / mass spectrometer for the VIKING MARS LANDER 1962- 1966 Thiokol Chemical Corp. Brigham City UT, Quality Control Chemist I performed chemical analysis and physical tests of raw material and analysis of propellants for in-process control. 1960- 1962 Purdue University, Research Technician in Food Technology 1958- 1960 Stokley Van Camp, Food Technologist 1956- 1958 U.
