& Career of Dr. Brian O'Leary" Three
Streaming Broadcast: February 28, 29 & March 1, 2012 (Original
Program Broadcast Fall 2010)
Dr. Brian O'Leary (1940 - 2011)
Dr. O’Leary, Ph.D., was a scientist-philosopher with fifty years of experience in academic research,
teaching and government service in frontier science and energy policy. He was a NASA scientist-astronaut during the
Apollo program, the first to be selected for a planned Mars mission, and participated in unmanned planetary missions as an
Ivy League professor.
Over the past four decades,
Dr. O’Leary had also been an international author, speaker, peace activist, founder of non-profits, and advisor to progressive
U.S. Congress members and presidential candidates.
Brian’s last book, “The Energy Solution
Revolution”, describes the enormous potential of breakthrough clean energy technologies, their suppression and their
logical necessity for our survival. Zero-point (vacuum) energy, cold fusion, and advanced hydrogen and water chemistry
could provide us all an abundant future for all of humanity.
In 2004, he and his wife, the artist Meredith Miller,
moved to the Andes in Ecuador, where they co-created Montesuenos – an eco-retreat and educational center dedicated to
creativity and the rights of nature.
A passionate environmentalist
open to innovative solutions, Dr. O'Leary was special consultant to the U.S. House of Representatives Subcommittee on Energy
and the Environment, wrote speeches and was senior advisor to environmental presidential candidate Morris Udall. He also helped
presidential candidates George McGovern, Walter Mondale and Jesse Jackson on economic policies to convert from polluting and
military activities to green initiatives.He is currently on the faculty of the University of Philosophical Research in Los
Angeles, teaching in the Masters program in Transformational Psychology. He is co-founder of the New Energy Movement (no longer
President). He has recently completed the Sivananda Yoga Teachers Training Course and lectures widely at their ashrams and
centers throughout the world. He is co-founder of the International Association of New Science and advisor to Dennis Weaver's
Institute of Ecolonomics.
Over the past decade, Dr. Oleary has spoken or led workshops at the Esalen Insitute, the Findhorn Foundation,
Oxford University, St. James Picadilly, State of the World Forum, the United Nations Youth Assembly, the International Conferences
on Science and Consciouness, the International Forums on New Science, the Philosophical Research Society, the International
Institute of Integral Human Sciences, Unity churches, Chuches of Religious Science, the Yuba Seminars and dozens of other
venues worldwide. With his artist-wife Meredith, Brian is founding Montesueños, a retreat center and botanical garden
in the Ecuadorian Andes dedicated to finding deep peaceful and sustainable solutions to humankind's war on nature and to implement
these at local, regional and global levels of action. They also plan to have many workshops and residences in the arts.
Many international groups will be coming during 2008 to launch this unique new facility, known for its great natural beauty.

The Energy Solution Resolution
During these times of global political change and fiscal
austerity, it seems that only one class of clean, renewable and sustainable energy sources can get us through these times:
new, breakthrough "free" energy. If properly understood and developed, these previously suppressed technologies
are the only path towards having affordable clean energy. The sources include vacuum energy, cold fusion and advanced hydrogen
The capital investment and environmental impact required to deploy free energy to replace hydrocarbons
and nuclear energy would be miniscule compared to the trillions needed to implement a pervasive economy of any other source,
even including conventional renewables such as solar, wind and biofuels. The Energy Solution Revolution is a social and political
mandate to create an awareness and a movement to develop these sources as soon as possible for the sake of all humanity and
Dr. O’Leary was passionate
about bringing new energy solutions into mainstream consciousness. "Embracing the possibility of a breakthrough energy
solution revolution should be our mandate, not an idle speculation to be ignored, ridiculed or feared. To thread the needle
of free energy, a critical mass of us will need to muster the courage to take this fire walk together. New energy offers the
world clean and abundant sources of power and represents a conscious choice we must make if humanity is to survive and prosper.”
