His site aggregates a mix of total scam/nutcase stuff with some highly speculative startups which might have something that will be useful sometime in the future. Personally, I'd stay far, far away, and look for the gold myself without having to dig through the breathless dross.

When you see stuff like this on a website:
Quote:
Scriptures and Inspired Verses Relevant to Free Energy - It has long been my belief that legitimate breakthrough clean energy technologies that are ridiculed and rejected have a destiny to become supreme, bringing the wisdom of the wise to naught, while exalting the so-called "foolish". (PESWiki)
...you know you're not dealing with something that's totally, ummm, legit.

thanks SY, there is a heated debate in one of our local forums and the majority of the membership thinks he is up to no good....

He's running a type of business that, sadly, is very common. The message is appealing, very appealing- "We have huge problems, but technology has SOLVED them, all we have to do is believe!"

Unfortunately, thermodynamics is not optional.

Don't bother arguing with people about this, the appeal is emotional and religious and that's not something amenable to reason.

Mr. Allan sounds to me like a person who is trying to make a lot of money and gain social/political power, while avoiding doing anything that would be viewed by most as work.

Peace,

Dave

Hello Tony, I am sure there are agencies here in the states that might be watching him (as our government does a lot of things without telling us), but there isn't anything that they can really do to him, unless they can prove that he is commiting fraud. Otherwise any actions by the government against him would be a violation of his First Amendment Rights of free speech.

Peace,

Dave

When it comes to outre projects, my favourite is these guys:

BlackLight Power Inc.

I check in every now and again to see how they are doing.

I don't have the chops to know if they're really for real but I have a dark suspicion they might be.

From the looks of their present board of directors they might be looking to go public. It used to be engineering and engineering business sort of folk but now they're finance and business law types.

Mills certainly doesn't lack audacity:
