Dr Brian O'Leary: In Memoriam


Safe journey, my friend, I'll see you back at Starbase
My friend, Dr Brian O'Leary, a brilliant champion of free energy technology and and a sustainable earth died yesterday in his home in Vilcabamba, Ecuador.  To some he was a scientist, and a physicist. To others he was a visionary and a bit of a mystic, a gifted author and writer. I knew him as all that and as a talented musician and storyteller, too. But what was agreed  by most that knew him was that he was a man who believed strongly that the world could possess all the clean, free energy it needed if only the visionaries and the scientists who had access to this technology were given the opportunity to put their plans into motion. He was a man on a mission. And when Brian championed a cause, he left no stones unturned.He was passionate and he was always before his time.

On October 10, 2010, a few months before his passing, he gave one last impassioned plea on sustainability to the United Nations . It is poignant and it is compelling. He did not live to see his vision become a reality, but he never stopped in his attempt to get us off the monster grid that threatens our livelihood and our planet. It is up to the rest of us to continue to hold his dream  and continue the fight for free energy. He will be missed.
